Maruti Suzuki all-new Vitara Brezza was unveiled at the Auto Expo 2020 and it took us a while before we got our hands on it. We finally did so in the sun kissed beach land of Goa. Unlike the Ignis that had undergone just a beefy transformation, the new Vitara Brezza ot a new heart. Out went the 1.3 litre multijet diesel engine and in came the 1.5 litre K-series BS VI petrol engine.
Maruti Suzuki has already made its intention with diesel engine. It is a big NO for them now. They want to go the petrol and hybrid way.
Prices for the new Vitara Brezza start at Rs 7.34 lakh for the base variant and goes up to Rs 11.40 lakh for the top model. Trim levels begin from LXI and goes up to VXI, ZXI and ZXI+. As always, we got the top model for a drive and we got to experience this new engine with both a 5 speed manual transmission as well as a 4-speed Automatic transmission.
For a vehicle that has sold more than 500,000 units since its launch, all of them in diesel, shifting to an only petrol engine is something of a strategy for the company, or so it seems.
The all-new Vitara Brezza will now be available in three new dual tone color options - Sizzling Red with midnight Black roof, Torque Blue with midnight Black roof and Granite Grey with Autumn Orange roof.
