Compared to its platform sibling Toyota Hycross, the Maruti Suzuki Invicto is priced lower with a range starting from Rs 24.79 lakh and peaking at Rs 28.42 lakh. This cost-cutting has come on the back of a few missed features on Maruti and in this comparison review, we pit these MPVs against each other to help you decide which one is the best for you.
Variant Choices: While Maruti Invicto is available only in two trims, i.e., Zeta+ and Alpha+, Toyota offers more choices to consumers in the form of four different trim levels to choose from – VX, VX(O), ZX, and ZX(O). Maruti range starts at Rs 24.79 lakh while Toyota offers the entry-level VX trim at starting price of Rs 25.03 lakh. The difference is more substantial when it comes to the top level with the Alpha+ variant of Maruti Invicto costing Rs 28.42 lakh compared to Rs 29.99 lakh for the ZX(O) variant of Toyota Hycross. Both companies offer 7-seat and 8-seat configurations on their MPVs with a hybrid petrol engine producing a max power of 186 bhp.
Entry-level comparison: Comparing the entry-level variants of Maruti and Toyota, the former comes without important parking aids such as front and rear parking sensors and 360-degree surround camera, the features which are available on the latter. Automatic adjustment of the inside rearview mirror, rear defogger, tab pressure monitoring system, and welcome lights on the wing mirrors are other features which are not available on the base variant of Maruti Invicto but are available on Toyota Hycross. However, it is interesting to know that six airbags are standard across the range of Invicto while Toyota offers only two front airbags in its base variant of Hycross.
Top-trim Difference: The price difference between the top variants of Invicto and Hycross is quite substantial and this comes down to the presence of 9 JBL-tuned speakers, powered Ottoman seats, adjustable rear armrest, 18-inch alloy wheels, and wipers with mist feature on Toyota. Further, the ADAS feature is also not available on Invicto which helped the Maruti to keep the prices in check.
