Maruti Suzuki’s highest selling SUV, the Vitara Brezza has received a facelift for 2020 and the new car has been unveiled at the Auto Expo. To be available in five trims, the diesel-only Brezza now has a petrol mill under its hood.
Since it is a facelift, the changes are largely cosmetic and include the revised dual LED headlamps, a fancier grille, a little more chrome and of course a new front bumper. The diamond cut alloy wheels are also new and so are the tail lamps. It will continue to be offered in single color and dual tone schemes along with two new colored and blue and with more customising options available on the website.
Inside, while the layout is fairly the same, the infotainment system, the touchscreen display, a tweaked instrument cluster refresh the interior with the Techno effect. It also gets all four power windows, automatic climate control, USB ports and 12V sockets depending on the trim you opt for. Two airbags and ABS are standard on the Brezza while parking sensors and reversing camera are dependent on the trims.
Under the hood, the Brezza gets the new 1.5-litre K-series smart hybrid petrol engine which is also compliant to the BS-VI standard. There is no word on the diesel yet, especially after Maruti has stopped making the 1.3-litre mill and we expect it to also be replaced by a 1.5-litre turbocharged engine in the near future.
The Brezza will compete with the likes of the Tata Nexon, the Ford Ecosport, the Hyundai Venue, the Honda WR-V and the erstwhile Mahindra TUV300.
