The 2020 Maruti Vitara Brezza is going to replace the diesel powertrain with a 1.5-litre, mild-hybrid, petrol engine.
Maruti Suzuki’s Vitara Brezza is turning out to be a success even after 3 years of its launch, with 7109 units sold in August 2019. However, it was about time for them to bring out the facelift that is likely to focus on mechanical changes than cosmetic.
The test mule suggests that the new Vitara Brezza may have a new aluminium grille and a redesigned front bumper. It features the same projector headlamps and ORVMs as seen on the current version. Although it does get a new set of circular fog lamps. At the rear, everything looks similar with a slight revision in the tail lights. Overall, it retains its boxy silhouette.
Looking at the exterior, we can conclude that the interior is also not going to have any major alterations. The compact SUV is probably going to get the latest SmartPlay infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
What exactly makes it worthy of a facelift then? The facelift is going to come with a BS6 compliant 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine with a mild-hybrid. The 1462cc engine boasts 105 PS of power and 138 Nm of torque. It is the same unit we currently see on the Ciaz and Ertiga.
The new Vitara Brezza is going to be accompanied with a 5-speed manual gearbox at the initial stages. Maruti Suzuki plans to join it with a 4-speed AT later on. It’ll be the same torque converter gearbox from the Ciaz and Ertiga.
We expect the facelift to debut around the 2020 Auto Expo, with some price revisions. The current version ranges from Rs. 7,80,000/- to Rs. 10,70,000/- (ex-showroom, Delhi).
