Maruti Suzuki India Ltd (MSIL) is about to launch a comprehensively updated version of its Vitara Brezza sub-4-meter compact SUV. The upcoming 2018 Maruti Vitara Brezza facelift will not only offer some cosmetic changes but will also come with some important features. Here’s all that you need to know about the 2018 Vitara Brezza facelift –
With the launch of the Maruti Vitara Brezza facelift, all the variants will come equipped with three important safety features – ABS, front dual airbags, and reverse parking sensors. As the safety features will be standard across all trims, Maruti will discontinue the LDi(O) and the VDi(O) trims. Other than the standard safety features, the 2018 Brezza will also offer an optional AMT on all variants except for the entry-level LDi trim. Other than the introduction of AMT, there won’t be any change in the specifications. Powering the Maruti Vitara Brezza is a Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre DDiS turbo diesel engine that outputs a maximum power of 89 Bhp and a peak torque of 200 Nm.
On the outside, the Maruti Vitara Brezza will get a chrome front grille and a chrome garnish for the tailgate across all the trim levels. Furthermore, the ZDi and the ZDi+ variants will get black alloys instead of Gunmetal Grey ones. On the inside, all the trims will come with a piano black trim for the all-black interior. As has been the case with the latest cars from Maruti Suzuki, there will be no badges except for the Suzuki insignia. Hence, the absence of variant/AGS/Maruti Suzuki badges will give the rear-end a pretty clean look. Another change will be the introduction of a dark Orange colour. The new colour option will replace the blue colour that was discontinued recently.
The addition of safety features will result in a price hike. The LDi variant will cost Rs 12,500 more while the VDi and ZDi variants will cost Rs 8,500 and Rs 5,500 more, respectively. The AMT option is likely to add another Rs 40,000- Rs 50,000 to the price of the Brezza. However, in all likelihood, the top-end Brezza AMT will be slightly cheaper than the recently launched Nexon diesel AMT. Moreover, the Nexon offers an AMT only on the top-end trim. This is something that will work in favour of the Brezza as the AMT option will be available from the VDi trim onwards. Stay tuned for more details on the 2018 Maruti Vitara Brezza facelift.
