This model is essentially a rebadged version of the Toyota Innova Hycross, marking a significant step forward for Maruti in terms of design and performance.

Manufacturing and Collaboration
Maruti Suzuki will partner with Toyota for the production of the Invicto hybrid MPV, with manufacturing already underway at Toyota's facility in Bidadi, Karnataka. This collaboration leverages Toyota's expertise in producing high-quality vehicles, ensuring that the new MPV meets the expectations of Maruti customers.
The Evolutionary Leap for Maruti
The Maruti Invicto hybrid MPV will mark a major evolutionary leap for Maruti Suzuki. As the largest car ever produced by Maruti, this luxurious vehicle boasts impressive dimensions, measuring 4755mm in length, 1850mm in width, and 1795mm in height. Its elegant design is accentuated by Champagne Gold Accents, providing a stylish and eye-catching appearance on the roads.
Comfort and Convenience
The Invicto hybrid MPV prioritizes passenger comfort and convenience. It features an 8-way adjustable powered driver seat with a memory function, ensuring a personalized and comfortable driving experience. The vehicle also offers 3-stage speed control ventilated seats for all occupants, guaranteeing a pleasant journey. Additionally, the second-row captain seats come with a side foldable table, providing a versatile and functional space for passengers.
Distinctive Styling and Safety Features
Maruti's new MPV will have its own distinctive styling, similar to other products shared between Maruti and Toyota. It will incorporate signature features seen in Nexa cars, such as sleek headlamps with DRLs, a rugged bumper design, prominent wheel arches, and thick body cladding. Safety features include an electronic parking brake, a 360-degree view monitor, and high-tensile steel construction, ensuring enhanced collision performance and passenger protection.
Impressive Performance and Efficiency
The Invicto hybrid MPV delivers exceptional performance and efficiency. Equipped with an intelligent electric hybrid system and an eCVT transmission, it offers multiple drive modes, including normal, eco, power, and a pure EV mode for shorter distances. The hybrid system, combined with a 2.0L petrol engine, delivers a total system power of 137 kW, allowing the MPV to accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in just 9.5 seconds. It achieves an impressive fuel efficiency of 23.24 kmpl, making it an eco-friendly choice for discerning drivers.
The Invicto Name and Ownership
Previously expected to be named 'Engage,' the MPV is now officially known as the Invicto. The change in name is likely due to a delay in the registration process for the Engage name. Maruti Suzuki already owns the 'Invicto' trademark, which has been valid since 2020 and extends until.
