2020 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Facelift spotted testing.
Expected refresh to launch late this year.
Will drop diesel from the lineup.
New bumpers and grille will be seen
Interior to get more features.
The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza has been sold in steady numbers since its launch in 2016. It has led the segment in sales, in fact, until the Hyundai Venue came along and dethroned it. But Maruti is almost ready with a Facelift, and it has been spotted testing. We take you through the changes it will get.
The styling will change a little, thanks to new bumpers and a new grille. It is also quite likely that new colors and new optional graphics will be added to the lineup. The headlamps also might switch to HID or LED illumination, as they are currently halogen bulbs. On the inside, the interior will remain largely the same, but the colors and upholstery might change slightly. The features will increase, of course, with the possibility of the larger touchscreen infotainment system making its way to the Vitara Brezza Facelift, and the instrument cluster might get upgraded to a color MFD. The touchscreen system will have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto enabled, just like before.
With the advent of the BS-VI emission norms, Maruti has committed to dropping diesel from its range. Hence, the diesel engine will be dropped from the Vitara Brezza lineup as well, and the K15B mild hybrid 1.5-liter petrol engine with 104 bhp and 138 Nm will be the mainstay of the lineup. The three-cylinder 1.0-liter turbo petrol might also become an option. An automatic transmission will be an option, but it remains to be seen if Maruti chooses to go with the four-speed torque converter from the Ertiga or the CVT from the Baleno, for the new Brezza. ABS with EBD, two front airbags, seatbelt reminder, rear parking sensors, and a high-speed alert system will be standard across the range.
