Maruti Suzuki MPV
This year, Maruti Suzuki MPV will introduce its most costly vehicle to India. The Toyota Innova Hycross, which began on sale in late 2022, will serve as the model’s basis. The brand’s first rebadged Toyota is expected to hit the market during the holiday season of 2023. The new Maruti MPV would rank above the XL6, which sells for between Rs. 11.41 lacs and Rs. 14.67 lacs, in the company’s product portfolio (all, ex-showroom).

The three-row MPV is anticipated to cost between Rs 20 lakh and Rs 30 lakh in the price range. Because of its high quality, it will be sold through the Nexa dealership network. The vehicle will be manufactured at Toyota’s Bidadi plant, which is also home to the Grand Vitara SUV.
The next Maruti Suzuki MPV will have a little different design than the Innova Hycross. It could have a brand-new grille, headlight assembly, and bumper. It’s interesting to note that this Maruti Suzuki vehicle will be the first to use ADAS technology. Safety technologies including lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitor, rear cross-traffic warning, and a pre-collision system will be available in the suite.
