Recently, we were in Goa to drive the new Maruti Vitara Brezza petrol, which comes with a 1.5-litre engine from Ciaz and Ertiga
Earlier this month, Maruti Suzuki India Ltd, the country's largest-selling carmaker, introduced the refreshed version of the Vitara Brezza with a. BSVI-compliant petrol engine. The new Maruti Vitara Brezza petrol employs a 1.5-litre petrol engine that comes from the Ciaz and the Ertiga. It's available with a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed torque-converter automatic transmission options. Recently, we were in Goa to test drive the new car and the video embedded below reveals how quick the new model is in its sprint from 0-60 kmph and 0-100 kmph.
For the acceleration runs, we used the manual variant of the new Maruti Vitara Brezza. As said in the video, we request you to refrain from such speed testing on public roads. Our test was conducted on a closed section of the road in the wee hours of the day, which means there was less risk of a mishap. We had multiple acceleration runs and have shown you two of the best ones. Finally, the quickest time we could obtain to accelerate from 0-60 kmph is 4.68 seconds, while the least time obtained for the 0-100 kmph run is 11.34 seconds.
The timings obtained are quite respectable, especially considering the price and the class of vehicle. However, it's worth a mention here that these figures were obtained using the speedo-metre readings. Hence, we need to factor in aspects like those of speedo-error. Still, even after factoring in a slight human error and marginally inaccurate readings that speedo units display, the Brezza petrol comes across as a car that's quite quick off the block. Also, regardless of the timings that have been obtained, it's for sure that the brisk performance of the refreshed sub-4-metre SUV doesn't leave much more to be desired.
The 1.5-litre petrol engine that powers the new Maruti Vitara Brezza outputs a maximum power of 105PS and a peak torque of 138Nm. In comparison, the D13A 1.3-litre diesel-burner of the pre-facelift model offered 90 PS and 200 Nm.
