From the looks of it, the Maruti Suzuki eVX will feature the familiar SUV design theme from the carmaker. What this would ensure would be a clear connection with the Grand Vitara as well as the Brezza. Overall, the SUV seen in the illustration exudes a contemporary look should have a mass appeal. Towards the front, you’ll notice a closed grille typical of an EV. The LED DRLs flanking the chrome appliqué on the faux grille are in sync with the ones on the Grand Vitara. The headlamps are found just below the DRLs. The bumper is chunky and looks sufficiently rugged with its lower-half adopting a black plastic finish.
The bumper even features circular fog lights and a silver faux skid plate. The side profile of the SUV in the illustrations have a hint of Jeep Compass around the C-pillar. The front fender houses the charging port. Overall, though, the profile has decent proportions and looks sufficiently rugged owning to the plastic cladding. Some other noteworthy features here include flush-fitting roof-rails, flared wheel arches and stylish dual-tone alloy wheels.
