With strong hybrid tech gaining popularity amongst customers, Maruti Suzuki and Toyota will take advantage of the good reception and introduce a host of new models. Here we have brought you a lowdown on all the upcoming strong hybrid cars from Maruti Suzuki and Toyota.
1. Maruti Suzuki Invicto:
The Maruti Suzuki Invicto is the rebadged version of the Toyota Innova Hycross and it will be launched on July 5. It will likely be sold only with the 2.0L strong hybrid petrol engine, paired with an e-CVT. It will be retailed exclusively through Nexa dealerships and the reservations are taken for a token of Rs. 25,000.
2. 7-Seater Toyota Corolla Cross:
Speculated to be under evaluation for India, the seven-seater SUV based on the global Toyota Corolla Cross could be launched next year. It will sit on the same TNGA-C platform as the Innova Hycross and could borrow the 2.0L strong hybrid petrol engine from it.
3. New-Gen Maruti Suzuki Swift:
Spotted multiple times over the last twelve months, the new generation Swift gets evolutionary cosmetic updates and the cabin will be more upmarket. It will likely go on sale in the first half of 2024 in India and will be equipped with a 1.2L strong hybrid three-cylinder petrol engine, capable of a claimed fuel efficiency of 35-40 kmpl.
4. New-Gen Maruti Suzuki Dzire:
The all-new Maruti Suzuki Dzire based on the same design philosophy as the upcoming Swift is expected to be introduced in the second half of next year. It will have mechanical similarities with its compact hatchback sibling and the 1.2L strong hybrid petrol engine will be shared.
5. New-Gen Toyota Fortuner:
The third-generation Toyota Fortuner will more likely be unveiled in early 2024 before going on sale in the international markets. It could be launched later next year in the domestic market with a completely overhauled exterior taking inspiration from the latest Tacoma. It will boast an updated platform, a new diesel hybrid engine and a more premium interior.
6. New-Gen Toyota Vellfire:
Only a few days ago, the new generation Toyota Vellfire made its world debut with a redesigned exterior and an updated interior. The luxury MPV has also been well received in India and thus the all-new model could be introduced in the near future as a full import with a hybrid powertrain. However, no official confirmation has been made yet.
7. 7-Seater Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara:
The three-row version of the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara will reportedly launch by the middle of this decade. It will have minor exterior changes to differentiate itself from its five-seater sibling and will likely derive power from both 1.5L mild-hybrid and 1.5L strong hybrid petrol engines.
