Maruti Suzuki is yet to offer a sporty version of the Baleno, but it appears that the upcoming Vitara Brezza compact SUV won’t have a power deficit at all, even on paper. According to Team-BHP, the vehicle will come with a 90 hp diesel engine, which will certainly make it very competitive.
The engine will still be the Fiat-sourced 1.3-liter diesel unit but like in the Ciaz, the Ertiga, and the S-Cross, it will sport a variable geometry turbocharger. Hence the maximum power and torque figures to 90 hp and 200 Nm respectively. Presence of the mild hybrid system (like the former two) is not known yet.
The petrol version will be added at a later date, while the same report says that a market launch will be followed in March. Maruti Suzuki will be bringing the Vitara Brezza to the 2016 Auto Expo, which begins on February 3, while it will be open to public from February 5 to 9.
