Is the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara Hiding a BIG Secret? You Won’t Believe the Surprising Truth!

When looking the dimensions of the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, it closely aligns with its segment’s leading models. It boasts measurements of 4,345mm in length, 1,795mm in width, and 1,645mm in height, all supported by a 2,600mm wheelbase. However, the interior space doesn’t quite live up to the standards set by its rivals.

Our recent road test revealed that the perceived spaciousness and actual room inside the SUV are somewhat at odds with its external dimensions. While the front half of the cabin still provides a reasonably comfortable experience, the rear portion feels rather narrow, and headroom is just sufficient. It works well for me and my colleagues, most of whom stand at heights below 6ft. However, I have reservations about taller individuals finding the back seat comfortable. The cargo space is also unremarkable, offering a mere 373 litres, falling short of what the segment’s best-sellers provide. This variant does surpass the hybrid version of the Grand Vitara, which offers only 265 litres of boot space.

Where the Grand Vitara somewhat redeems itself is in terms of legroom and knee room, which are quite generous, as evidenced in the accompanying image. The inclusion of a large panoramic sunroof contributes to a sense of spaciousness to some extent, although it may be a contributing factor to the limited headroom. Both the front seats and the rear bench are comfortable even during longer journeys. In short, if your family consists of individuals of average height, around 5ft 10in or shorter, the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara should meet your needs comfortably. However, taller or larger individuals may not find the rear seating area to their liking.

Testing commenced in April 2023, with the odometer reading at 6,490km. This month’s mileage stands at 1,987km, achieving an efficiency rating of 14.4kmpl.”
