Suzuki Grand Vitara Price in Nepal and Availability

Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara is a brand new product in India.

It will take some time for the complete details to come out. Moreover, it is currently available for pre-bookings only in India.

It is expected to go into production in August, disclosing the official pricing in September 2022.

Only after the official availability, Suzuki Grand Vitara will arrive in Nepal after a 6-7 months interval.

Suzuki Grand Vitara will compete against Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos.

So, the Suzuki Grand Vitara price in Nepal will be along that range. However, the Intelligent Electric Hybrid will be priced much higher.

This is complete speculation on my part. Please take it with a grain of salt.

We are working with limited details. Nevertheless, we will continue to update this article as more details come to light.
