We had revealed long back that Maruti will enter the SUV segment currently dominated by Hyundai Creta and the Vitara will be that product. The Maruti Vitara is an SUV which is bigger than the Vitara Brezza. The SUV will be launched next year in India. The 2019 Maruti Suzuki Vitara will offer fierce competition to the Hyundai Creta, which has been the uncrowned king of the segment, so far. The Korean maker will finally meet a strong challenger in this segment. The Vitara Brezza is the best selling SUV in India and Maruti will look at capturing another SUV segment with the new Vitara. This will be an interesting match.
Though the Maruti S-Cross is selling decent numbers, it cannot match the success of the Creta. Despite a recent facelift, it is struggling to sell high volumes. It has got more crossover looks than a proper SUV and that maybe a turn-off for many buyers. The S-Cross will continue to sell, but its crossover imagery will remain. The Vitara on the other hand, would be a proper SUV in comparison. The pricing aalso would be more premium as compared to the S-Cross. The 2019 Maruti Suzuki Vitara will come with new 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines, to take on the Creta. It is likely to be sold from the Nexa experience showrooms. What all does the 2019 Maruti Suzuki Vitara have? When will it be launched? Read further to know more about this upcoming SUV.

2019 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Interior
The interior of the 2019 Maruti Suzuki Vitara SUV will be modern but simple. There will not be too much drama and it will be functional. There are 2 AC vents on the top centre of the dashboard, with a clock in the centre. These are round ones. The steering is the same one seen on the Vitara Brezza. The instrument cluster is a simple affair too, with 2 dials and a driver info screen in the centre. The centre has a touchscreen fitted, similar to the Brezza. The dashboard has a two-tone effect. The space is good inside and is sufficient of 5 adults to sit in comfortably. The boot will also be big with ore than sufficient storage space.
As compares to the S-Cross, he interiors will have a richer feel. The top variant will have a leather trim, which be of superior quality. We wish the steering wheel of the Vitara would be a new one. The one seen in the pic is the same as the one found in many Maruti cars. A different steering would enhance its appeal.
2019 Maruti Suzuki Vitara India Design
The new Maruti Vitara is base on the XA Alpha concept showcased by Maruti a few years back. The new Vitara is more than 4 meter in length. It features a sharp looking front fascia. The grille reminds us of a twin blade shaving razor. The headlamps are sleek and the facia has a pleasant and modern look. The bonnet is a clamshell type one. From the side, the SUV resembles the Creta to an extent, but it looks bigger. There is a prominent shoulderline and the rear fender is flared up, to give a muscular appearance. The rear portion reminds us of the S-Cross a bit. It does have similarities with the Vitara Brezza too, but this SUV looks way more premium.
