Maruti Invicto vs Toyota Hycross: Detailed comparo for confused buyers

Overall, I will recommend getting Hycross VX for the lower end and Invicto Alpha+ at the top end.

BHPian inwester recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

I’ve been looking for a thorough comparison of the Suzuki Invicto vs Toyota Innova Hycross with all the variants and couldn’t find a comprehensive guide that would help people looking for either of these vehicles. So, I decided to spend some time and get all the feature lists and do a comparison now that all cars come with 6 airbags.

Invicto Zeta+ vs Hycross VX

Features you gain vs. VX:

  • LED DRLs and turn indicators

Features you lose vs. VX:

  • Front and reverse parking sensors
  • 360-degree camera
  • Tire pressure monitoring sensors (TPMS)
  • Auto-dimming inside rear-view mirror (IRVM)
  • Automatic headlamps
  • Acoustic windshield (dual pane) with green lamination (no IR cut in both; Zeta+ only gets green lamination)
  • Rear defogger
  • Front wipers with intermittent, time adjust and mist function (Zeta+ only gets intermittent)
  • Immobilizer w/ Siren + Ultrasonic & Glass Break Sensor (Zeta+ only gets immobilizer)
  • Welcome lights on outside rear-view mirrors (Zeta+ gets retractable ORVM but misses welcome lights)
  • Additional remote operations โ€“ power windows close and AC on/off

Invicto Zeta+ ex-showroom price 7-seater โ€“ Rs. 24,79,000

Hycross VX ex-showroom price 7-seater โ€“ Rs. 25,30,000

Winner: Hycross VX

VX Costs an extra 50k which I think is more than justified. More than the price, itโ€™s the missing features in Zeta+ like parking sensors, auto-dimming IRVM, defogger etc. which makes it un-recommendable. For 8-seater add 5,000 to both.

Invicto Alpha+ vs Hycross VX(O)

Features you gain vs. VX(O):

  • Leatherette seats
  • Ventilated front seats
  • Powered driverโ€™s seat with memory function
  • Electric tailgate
  • Dual-zone climate control
  • Wheel arch cladding

Features you lose vs VX(O):

  • LED front fog lamps

Invicto Alpha+ ex-showroom price 7-seater โ€“ 28,42,000

Hycross VX(O) ex-showroom price 7-seater โ€“ 27,27,000 (add 5,000 for 8-seater)

Winner: Invicto Alpha+

Itโ€™s a little tricky here. If you want an 8-seater VX(O) is your only option. If you want a 7-seater maybe spend a lakh more and get the Invicto Alpha+.

Invicto Alpha+ vs Hycross ZX

Features you gain vs. ZX:

  • None

Features you lose vs ZX:

  • Powered Ottoman 2nd row seats
  • JBL 9-speaker system with subwoofer (Alpha+ only gets 6)
  • 18โ€ alloy wheels with 225/50 R18 (vs. 215/60 R17 in Alpha+, which might not be a bad thing).
  • Adjustable rear armrests (Alpha+ gets them but they are non-adjustable)
  • Mist function on wipers (Alpha+ gets intermittent plus time adjust function)

Additional features you lose vs. ZX(O):

  • Toyota Safety Sense System (i.e., Advanced Driver Assistant System / ADAS)

Invicto Alpha+ ex-showroom price 7-seater โ€“ 28,42,000

Hycross ZX ex-showroom price 7-seater โ€“ 29,62,000

Hycross ZX(O) ex-showroom price 7-seater โ€“ 30,26,000

Winner: Tie

Itโ€™s not straightforward here as well. Hycross ZX/ZX(O) is 1.2-1.8 lakhs more, so if you want a 7-seater with a branded music system and ottoman then get the Toyota version. If you want ADAS functionality ZX(O) is your only option. If you donโ€™t care for those functions get the Alpha+, as it’s decently kitted and will save you 2-3 lakhs on-road.

Here is the TL;DR version (from my perspective).

Hope this helps.
