Maruti Suzuki continues to tease the upcoming Grand Vitara SUV with looks and features being revealed gradually ahead of the much anticipated official unveiling on July 20. In its latest teaser, Maruti Suzuki offers a sneak peek at the new taillight design of the Grand Vitara SUV. The LED taillights offer a unique design unseen in any Maruti car launched so far.
