A revamped Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Facelift will be one of the key attractions at the Auto Expo in February 2020.
Two other SUVs, a Jimny-based SUV and a 7-seater Vitara, could debut along with the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Facelift.
Maruti Suzuki is introducing Maruti S-Presso Micro SUV in September/October 2019.
Maruti Suzuki India is witnessing an uncharacteristic slump in its sales. Hence, it is trying to regain its position by introducing attractive discounts and new models. One such revamped model that could debut at the February 2020 Auto Expo is the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Facelift.
It is already releasing a new micro SUV, the Maruti Suzuki S-Presso in September/October 2019, as part of its endeavour to upgrade its vehicles to conform to BSVI emission norms. Maruti Suzuki is also exploring possibilities of introducing a 7-seater Vitara along with a Jimny-based SUV at the Auto Expo 2020.
The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza has been successful for the company since its introduction. However, the arrival of Hyundai Venue and Mahindra XUV300 has pushed its sales back a little. It explains why Maruti Suzuki is revamping the Vitara Brezza and introducing the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Facelift. New powertrain and a couple of cosmetic changes are in the offing. The higher-end vehicles could get four airbags and a sunroof. The SUV will also come with a BSVI-compliant 1.5L petrol engine, as is available in the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz.
Maruti Suzuki does not have any presence in the mid-size SUV segment. The 7-seater Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza will change the equation by providing competition to the Jeep Compass, Hyundai Creta, MG Hector, and the upcoming Tata Buzzard.
Maruti Suzuki is also planning its version of the Jimny Sierra. It is the next-generation Gypsy and will be bigger than the Jimny Sierra. Initially, the vehicle will not have the 4WD system but will come with a 1.5L petrol engine.
