Except for the base trim, all other variants of the 2020 Maruti Vitara Brezza are costlier than the equivalent trims of the diesel version

Indian carmaker Maruti recently introduced the Brezza facelift into the Indian market at a starting price of Rs 7.34 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Maruti Vitara Brezza hs been the hot-selling sub-compact SUV. In the last four year, the carmaker retailed around 5 lakh units of the pre-facelift model. The new model features cosmetical upgrades along with the introduction of a petrol motor that replaces the BSIV-compliant diesel motor. Today, we'll tell you all the differences between the recently launched model and its earlier version. 

Starting from the design, the facelift model employs subtle cosmetical upgrades like the addition of a new headlamp cluster, which consists of LED projector headlights along with DRLs. The front-end of the car also features a redesigned grille with some faux carbon fibre inserts and a redesigned bumper along with bigger LED fog lamp housing. Moreover, the updated sub-compact SUV also gets redesigned silver-finished faux skid-plate at the front. The side profile of the Brezza facelift employs 16-inch precision-cut alloy wheels and LED taillamps. Maruti is now also offering two new colour shades with the facelift model namely- Torque Blue and Sizzling Red. The new Maruti Brezza looks quite identical to the pre-facelift model. On the other hand, the cabin of the car looks almost identical to the older model, but the Brezza facelift now features the company’s all-new SmartPlay infotainment system.
