Nexa Grand Vitara Hybrid Additional Features

For the early adopters of Grand Vitara hybrid, Maruti Suzuki are also providing the following freebies under the Pristine pack

  • 5 year/1,00,000km extended warranty
  • Front bumper extender with dark chrome
  • Rear skid plate with dark chrome
  • Side skirt with dark chrome
  • Headlamp garnish with dark chrome
  • Body side moulding in dark chrome
  • Door sill guard
  • All weather 3D mats
  • Boot mat
  • Boot sill guard

  • Nexa cushion set
  • High performance vacuum cleaner

Maruti Suzuki claim that these features are worth Rs. 67,000. We can assume that some of these accessories will carry a slightly inflated price in the official accessory list. Still, we believe that these features and the additional warranty add up to about Rs. 40,000 - 45,000 if you choose to add these accessories from the aftermarket. So, the Rs. 50,000 price premium for the Grand Vitara hybrid is almost justified over the Hyryder.

Additional Benefits Of Nexa Grand Vitara

Besides the Pristine accessory pack, the Grand Vitara will also enjoy a wider sales and service network. So, you won’t have to drive too far for the yearly service visit even if you live in one of the smaller cities. Maruti Suzuki also have a wide network of outlets for sales of genuine spare parts. While it’s too early to talk about it, if you choose to get your car’s service done from a local shop after the factory warranty expires, you can easily buy authentic spares for your Grand Vitara hybrid. The wider service network also helps Maruti cars maintain high valuations in the used car market. Although Toyota’s reputation for reliability also does the same thing for their cars.
