Maruti Suzuki has just teased the Brezza Facelift, ahead of the sub-4 meter compact SUV’s launch at the 2020 Indian Auto Expo. The 2020 Brezza Facelift will get a refreshed front grille, tweaked headlamps with built-in DRLs and a new front bumper. The profile of the SUV will remain similar to the version it replaces as it’s a facelift and not a full model change. At the rear, revised tail lamps and bumper are also likely. Here is the official teaser of the car, which will give you a glimpse at what to expect at the 2020 Auto Expo.

The biggest change in the 2020 Maruti Brezza will be in the engine department. The sub-4 meter compact SUV will go petrol-only, dumping the 1.3 liter Fiat Multijet diesel engine, which has not been made to meet the Bharat Stage 6 (BS6) emission norms. The compact SUV will be powered by a 1.5 liter-4 cylinder K-Series naturally aspirated petrol engine, with 104 Bhp-138 Nm outputs.
The engine will be offered with two gearbox options: a 5 speed manual and a 4 speed torque converter automatic. This engine will also get a mild hybrid system that is known by the name suzuki Hybrid Vehicle system (SHVS). The micro hybrid will get a separate battery, which is meant to take load off the alternator, thereby boosting fuel efficiency and cutting emissions.
Maruti is also expected to load the 2020 Brezza with a bunch of new features including an electric sunroof. These bits are likely to focus on long-standing customer demand, making the compact SUV a more rounded offering. As for pricing, the 2020 Brezza BS6 could actually get cheaper than the diesel powered version, with prices starting from around Rs. 7 lakh. This will give the Hyundai Venue and Tata Nexon – two of the most reasonably priced options in the sub-4 meter compact SUV segment – big competition.
Stay tuned to CarToq for exact pricing of the new Brezza, along with variant and booking details. Maruti Suzuki has already begun producing the petrol powered Brezza, which shares its mechanicals with the Ciaz, XL6 and Ertiga. Bookings of the Brezza will be opened shortly, and deliveries will begin soon after. A diesel engine could be offered sometime next year if there is adequate demand for it. as Maruti is said to be working to make the in-house 1.5 liter-4 cylinder turbocharged diesel engine BS6 compliant. This engine could find its way into a range of larger Maruti cars including the Brezza, Ertiga, XL6, S-Cross and Ciaz.
