Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza became the top-selling Utility Vehicle in India soon after its launch. It is Maruti’s first-ever sub 4-meter Compact SUV car and is extremely popular in the segment. The Brezza takes on the highly competitive Ford EcoSport and Tata Nexon SUV which offer a larger feature list than the Brezza. Maruti has decided to update the variant line-up to ensure that the Brezza stays fresh in the market.
According to a report on GaadiWaadi, Maruti will soon start to deliver the new range of the Brezza in India. The new line-up will get dual airbags and ABS as a standard feature across the variants. Until now, Maruti offered the LDI (O) and the VDI (O) for the base and the mid trims with optional ABS and dual airbags system. Now that the features are standard across the variants, the optional (O) variants have been discontinued from the base and mid-level trims.
The top-end variant, ZDi and ZDi (O) gets a new sportier look. Maruti has added new multi-spoke alloy wheels finished in black that gives a very aggressive look to the vehicle. Apart from that, the rest of the Maruti Brezza and the engine have not been touched.
For a long while now, Maruti has been expected to launch the petrol version of the Brezza in the market. The car is also expected to get an automatic transmission but there has been no news about these two updates.
The new additional features have resulted in the increase of the cost of the variants. The base variant LDi gets a price hike of Rs. 12,500, the VDi gets an increase of Rs. 8,500 while the top-end ZDi gets an increase of Rs. 5,500.
The Maruti Brezza is powered by only a diesel engine option. The 1.3-litre DDiS engine in the vehicle produces a maximum of 89 Bhp and 200 Nm of peak torque. It gets a 5-speed manual transmission only. Maruti offers a lot of customisation options to the customers through its iCreate program. It is expected that the petrol and the automatic versions of the Brezza will be launched soon in the Indian market. The deliveries of the new updated Brezza is expected to start soon.
