Is Maruti upto something? You ask why? Well, India’s largest carmaker MSIL seems to be all set to reveal its brand new mid-size SUV. The SUV in question is the next generation of the iconic Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara which has been spied testing on Indian roads.

The test mule of the next-gen Grand Vitara was spotted being de-boarded off of a towing truck close to the brand’s production facility located in Gurugram. The spotted test mule looks to be the fourth generation of the mid-size SUV.
