Even without the new powertrain technology, the Zeta variant has a fairly attractive package with more features for its nearly Rs 2 lakh premium over the previous trim.

While the Zeta variant does offer many of the Grand Vitara’s premium features, it is not the best version of the Maruti compact SUV. You’re still missing out on the 360-degree view camera, ventilated front seats and a leatherette upholstery. However, you could also get a few extra features by opting for the strong-hybrid powertrain in the Zeta+ trim.

Rs 2.6 lakh 

For a hefty premium of Rs 2.6 lakh, you can have the Zeta variant of the Maruti Grand Vitara with the new strong-hybrid powertrain.

Why consider the Zeta+ hybrid variant?

The hybrid option comes with the obvious benefit of increased fuel economy with a claimed figure of  nearly 28kmpl, 7-8kmpl more than the equivalent petrol-automatic option. Over time, your reduced running costs will make up for this premium and you’ll know that your SUV will also have lower emissions.

Additionally, the Zeta+ hybrid trim comes with a sportier cabin theme in black and plenty more premium features. It comes with a panoramic sunroof, a seven-inch digital driver’s display, a head-up display and a wireless charger as well which makes it worth the premium. 


It is too basic to recommend, but acts as an affordable entry-point to the compact SUV segment.


The true entry-level option on a strict budget, only consider it with the automatic transmission.


With the strong hybrid powertrain, it is our recommended variant for its premium features and fuel economy.


To truly experience all its premium features, you’ll have to pay the premium for the strong hybrid powertrain. Can be considered for its AWD option as well.
