Maruti patents new Grand Vitara in India, coming in 2016?

Maruti Suzuki has filed a design patent for the next-generation Vitara SUV in India. Chances are, this model could be launched as the brands flagship product in FY17.
The Suzuki Vitara is already available on sale in multiple markets, and if launched in India, will rival the likes of Mahindra XUV5OO & Skoda Yeti.
Why do we think there is a possibility of the Vitara coming to India?
  • New premium Nexa dealerships need more cars, to justify the decision
  • Vitara is powered by the 1.6L DDiS motor, similar to the S-Cross
The Vitara is based on the iV-4 concept and is expected to be a 5 seater with an option of accommodating 7 as well.
The previous generation Vitara bombed in the market, primarily due to the high pricing. This time, Maruti Suzuki could locally assemble the Vitara to reach out to a wider audience.
