Maruti Suzuki is working on a new generation of the Vitara Brezza. Maruti did give a mild facelift to the Vitara Brezza last year at the Auto Expo 2020. The largest automobile manufacturer introduced a petrol engine and gave some cosmetic upgrades. However, the 2022 update will be a big one. It will be an all-new generation so expect a lot of changes. Here, we have a rendering of the 2022 Vitara Brezza that has been done based on the spy shots. The video is uploaded on YouTube by Moter World.
The front fascia is all-new. There are sleeker looking headlamps. It seems like Maruti Suzuki will be using dual projectors and dual C-shaped LED Daytime Running Lamps. There is a new grille also that integrates with the headlamps.
The bumper is all new and looks more aggressive and has a design that looks like a bullbar. There are new fog lamp housings which consist of new LED foglamps. On the sides, there are squared-off wheel arches and thick black plastic cladding that runs throughout the length of the compact SUV. There are newly designed 5-spoke alloy wheels too.

The rear is also all-new. There are sleek looking LED tail lamps with “Brezza” spelt out between the new tail lamps. There will be SHVS badging also. The number plate housing has been repositioned and now it sits below. The lower half of the bumper is black plastic with a faux skid plate. There would also be a rear wiper with a washer, high mounted stop lamp and roof rails. It seems like Maruti Suzuki will only be calling the new compact SUV “Brezza” instead of “Vitara Brezza”.
New Brezza will come with more features
Now, the sales of the Vitara Brezza are not the same as they once were. It lacks features when compared to its rivals so Maruti Suzuki will be fixing that. The 2022 Brezza will come with a lot of additional features which have been spotted in the spy shots.
Finally, there would be an electric sunroof on offer. It will also come with a 360-degree parking camera, a redesigned instrument cluster with connected car technology. There would also be an SOS functionality. The new-gen Brezza might use the steering wheel from the Swift. It would come with buttons to control cruise control and audio controls.
Maruti Suzuki has also added a new touchscreen infotainment system which is larger and is positioned as a floating unit. It would come with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and a new user interface. It might be the same infotainment system that debuted on the new recently unveiled S-Cross. Moreover, the new infotainment system will also be used on the Baleno Facelift.
Engine and gearbox
Maruti Suzuki will use the same 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine. It produces 104 PS of max power and 138 Nm of peak torque. It will be offered with a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard. It is still now known whether Maruti Suzuki will be using the existing 4-speed torque converter automatic gearbox or a new 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
