Among the eight SUV competitors, Grand Vitara and Hyryder are the only SUVs offering hybrid powertrains with their top-end petrol engines. Though they produce the lowest amount of power and torque output against the 156hp power of Kicks and 250Nm torque of Kushaq and Taigun. All the SUVs are powered by naturally aspirated petrol units while Kushaq and Taigun sport turbo-petrol mills. Creta and Seltos are also available in diesel variants. 

For manual transmission, Grand Vitara, Hyryder, and Astor make use of a 5-speed gearbox while others offer 6-speed transmissions. But for automatic transmission, each SUV gets a combination of torque converters, DCT, and CVT gearboxes. Notably, it’s only Grand Vitara and Hyryder that offer electric gearboxes with their strong hybrid models.

Now comes the turn of the most fundamental parameter affecting the purchase of a vehicle – fuel efficiency. With the records on paper, strong hybrid models of Maruti Grand Vitara and Toyota Hyryder are the winners offering a claimed mileage of 27.97kmpl. But there’s a catch since both of the SUVs are still awaiting to make on roads for real-time testing. 

While the mild hybrid variants of the two siblings registered a fuel efficiency of 21.12kmpl based on the internal testing. The trailing SUVs are Taigun, Kushaq, Creta, Seltos, and Kicks at the least. Astor’s economy rate has not yet been revealed by the maker.
