The Maruti Suzuki Invicto has been recently introduced with a starting price of Rs 24.79 lakh.

Maruti Suzuki has recently introduced its flagship model, the Invicto MPV, at an introductory price of Rs 24.79 lakh (ex-showroom, India) for the base Zeta+ variant. The Invicto is available in two trims, namely Zeta+ and Alpha+, and offers two seating configurations. Built alongside the Toyota Innova Hycross at Toyota’s Bidadi plant, the Invicto marks the eighth addition to Maruti Suzuki’s Nexa dealership lineup.

Drawing inspiration from its sibling, the Hycross, the Invicto shares many design elements. However, it distinguishes itself with a unique grille featuring two thick, horizontal chrome slats that extend into the headlights.

The headlights themselves showcase Nexa’s signature three-block daytime running lamps. The MPV also sports a distinct front bumper and faux skid plates. The profile of the Invicto closely resembles the Hycross, with the only noticeable difference being the design of its 17-inch alloy wheels. At the rear, the Invicto showcases tail lights with Nexa’s three-block design, while badges and branding differentiate it from its Toyota counterpart.

In terms of dimensions, the Invicto mirrors the Innova Hycross, measuring 4,755mm in length, 1,850mm in width, and 1,795mm in height, with a wheelbase of 2,850mm. The interior of the Invicto maintains similarities with its Toyota counterpart.

While the Hycross features black and brown interiors with silver accents, the Invicto boasts an all-black interior with Champagne Gold accents. The MPV offers both seven- and eight-seat configurations, with a boot space of 239 liters that can be expanded up to 690 liters by folding down the third row.

The Invicto comes packed with an array of features, including a 10.1-inch touchscreen with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. Additional amenities comprise a 360-degree camera, a panoramic sunroof with roof ambient lighting, a powered driver’s seat, powered tailgate, dual-zone climate control, ventilated front seats with cupholders, a 7-inch digital instrument cluster, and over 50 Suzuki Connect features. Safety features consist of six airbags, ABS, electronic parking brake, stability control, and hill start assist.

Under the hood, the Invicto is equipped with a strong-hybrid powertrain comprising a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine coupled with an electric motor. This combination generates a total output of 184hp, mated to an e-CVT transmission. Notably, the Invicto stands as Maruti Suzuki’s first hybrid-only and automatic-only model. The strong-hybrid system enables an electric-only mode. The MPV achieves a claimed 0-100kph acceleration time of 9.5 seconds and offers a claimed fuel efficiency of 23.24kpl.

Based on the Toyota Innova Hycross, the Invicto utilizes a monocoque chassis built on Toyota’s TNGA-C ‘High’ platform. With a transversely mounted engine powering the front wheels, the Invicto directly competes with the Toyota Innova Hycross in the market.

While the Invicto would have also rivaled the Kia Carnival, the latter was discontinued due to non-compliance with the new BS6 Phase 2 norms. In terms of competitors, the Invicto finds itself in the league of similarly priced three-row SUVs such as the Mahindra XUV700, Scorpio N, Hyundai Alcazar, MG Hector Plus, and Tata Safari.
