Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara is equipped with a 2.7-liter V6 engine that's capable of 185 horsepower. A five-speed manual is standard on the base model, while a five-speed automatic system is optional.

The vehicle incorporates safety features like Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Dual Airbags. Doors are equipped with side-impact beams. The sturdy ladder frame is boxed and is designed with built-in crumple zones at the front and the rear.
