Maruti Suzuki has finally introduced the Vitara Brezza facelift at the Auto Expo 2020. Here're all the details you need to know about the facelifted Brezza.
Maruti Suzuki is making it big at the ongoing Auto Expo. Apart from the futuristic Futuro-e Concept revealed already, the company is bringing a range of new models including the Maruti Vitara Brezza facelift. Recently, Maruti has unveiled the Vitara Brezza facelift to the press and public at the weekly biennial auto show. Prices are yet to be announced.
Maruti Vitara Brezza made its first public showcase four years ago at the Auto Expo 2016 and now the facelift version has been unveiled at the ongoing Auto Expo 2020. The Vitara Brezza facelift comes back with a host of design changes and feature updates, in a bid to stay fresh to compete with younger models like Hyundai Venue and the recently launched Tata Nexon facelift.
The Maruti Vitara Brezza facelift gets an updated front face with a new grille, updated headlamps, and refreshed fog lamps housing. It features a brushed faux-skid plate up front, enhancing the SUV-ish looks of this car. The new compact SUV also comes with a revised set of alloy wheels, LED taillamps, and a slightly-revamped rear bumper.
On the inside, the 2020 Maruti Vitara Brezza facelift adopts the SmartPlay Studio infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. New upholstery and some features are also added to improve the convenience and comfort quotient of the new Brezza.
The spec-sheet of the car is as follows:
1.5 litre K-series petrol engine
138Nm @ 4400rpm
77 kW @ 6000rpm
MT: 17.03 kmpl
AT(with Smart Hybrid): 18.76 kmpl
The facelifted Vitara Brezza now features a BS6-compliant 1.5-litre petrol engine producing 105 PS of power and 138 Nm of peak torque. A five-speed manual transmission comes standard in the model while a four-speed torque converter comes as an option for the higher variants.
The 1.3-litre diesel motor, which served the pre-facelift, has been phased out as it could not be upgraded to meet BSVI emission standards. This could be a potential problem for Maruti, as there are quite a few people who would prefer to buy a diesel SUV over a petrol one, owing to better fuel economy.
The price list will be posted as soon as the vehicle is launched in India. For more updates about Auto Expo 2020, keep following IndianAuto.
