Maruti will launch the updated Vitara Brezza in the Indian market soon. The first sub-4m compact SUV from the brand, the Vitara Brezza is an exceptionally popular car in the Indian market and more than 5 lakh units of the car are already sold in the Indian market. However, the current version of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza gets powered only by a 1.3-litre diesel engine option. Maruti Suzuki has officially announced that they will discontinue the diesel-powered vehicles in the Indian market when the new BS6 emission compliance norm is implemented in the market.
According to a report on ACI, the upcoming Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is ready for production and the launch will happen on 5th February 2020, on the first day of Auto Expo. The updated Vitara Brezza will get powered by the 1.5-litre petrol engine that also powers the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and the Ciaz. This engine produces a maximum power of 105 PS and peak torque of 138 Nm and is expected to produce the same power and torque in the upcoming car.
The report also mentions that Maruti Suzuki will equip the upcoming Vitara Brezza with an automatic transmission too. The current version of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza gets an AMT automatic transmission. However, with the upcoming vehicle, there will be a 4-speed torque convertor transmission alongside the 5-speed manual. The upcoming vehicle will get the mild-hybrid SHVS system only with the automatic version. The manual version of the car will not get the SHVS system. Maruti Suzuki will not offer features like ESP and hill-hold assist with the upcoming version of the car.
The upcoming Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza will not be an all-new car. Instead, it will be a facelift that will be powered by a new engine. The cosmetic updates of the upcoming Vitara Brezza include a new grille with new bumpers and headlamps. The shape of the headlamps remain the same but there are internal changes that make the headlamp look different. Apart from these slight changes, there will be faux skid plates at the front and the rear of the vehicle. Maruti Suzuki will also offer new diamond-cut alloy wheels with the top-end version of the car.
There will be new paint schemes too. The two new shades that will be available with the car are Sizzling Red and Torque Blue. The updated version of the Vitara Brezza will continue to offer the dual-tone exterior paint scheme.
On the inside, we may get to see a wireless phone charger and a tweaked infotainment system but there will no sunroof. Since the vehicle will get powered by the 1.5-litre petrol engine, the vehicle will lose out on some of the price advantages. This will also make the car priced at a similar level to the current diesel-powered Vitara Brezza.
