Maruti Suzuki Engage to Debut in India on 5 July

Maruti Suzuki has officially confirmed the arrival of its new Toyota Innova Hycross-based MPV, which will be unveiled on the 5th of July in India. This comes as another fruit of collaboration between Toyota and Suzuki which has spawned many cross-badged products with slight design alterations such as Suzuki Eritga-based Toyota Rumion, Suzuki Baleno-based Toyota Glanza, Suzuki Brezza-based Toyota Urban Cruiser, Suzuki Ciaz-based Toyota Belta, and Toyota Corolla Estate-based Suzuki Swace to name a few.

Like the above examples, the Suzuki Engage will also slightly differ from its donor Innova Hycross with mild aesthetic enhancements as well as a new set of alloys. The interior too, will be carried over from the Hycross with notable inclusions of 360-degree camera, ADAS, a panoramic sunroof, a three-zone climate control system, and a powered driver seat with memory function.
