Expect a launch of the Maruti Vitara Brezza Facelift version in the coming months.
The 2020 Vitara Brezza Facelift could be the second product of the result of the Toyota Suzuki partnership.
The Vitara Brezza Facelift could get updated exteriors and interiors.
The BSVI auto emission norms are around the corner, and every automobile manufacturer is busy upgrading the existing fleet to meet its stringent criteria. Maruti Suzuki India Limited is also in the midst of this transition.
The company started introducing BSVI engines since April 2019 and has sold more than three lakhs BSVI-compliant vehicles up to date. Maruti Suzuki had also stated that it might discontinue the diesel engine variants post the April 2020 deadline. The high costs involved in upgrading the existing BSIV engines is the reason behind this decision.
With Maruti Suzuki planning to discontinue the Fiat-sourced 1.3L DDiS engine, the Vitara Brezza could get a new petrol engine. The choice could be the 1.5L 4-cylinder K15B SHVS petrol motor available in the Ciaz, Ertiga, and the XL6. This engine produces a power of 104.7ps and a torque of 138Nm. The engine mates with either a 4-speed torque converter AT or a 5-speed manual transmission engine.
Maruti Suzuki plans to introduce exterior and interior updates to the mid-life Facelift version of the compact SUV. It ensures to enhance the vehicle’s lifespan until the arrival of the next-generation vehicle in a couple of years.
The 2020 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Facelift could be the second Toyota-Suzuki alliance rebadge vehicle after the Toyota Glanza. This rebadged version will be available on sale across Toyota Kirloskar dealerships in India. The petrol variant will be the initial release by early 2020 followed by the next-gen vehicle by the end of 2021.
