With the positive response of Maruti Suzuki’s compact SUV Vitara Brezza, the company is, reportedly, gearing up to launch the petrol variant of the model by early next year. The Vitara Brezza was launched in the country in March this year and is being sold in the diesel variant only. According to MotorOctane, Maruti Suzuki is planning to launch Vitara Brezza petrol variant by April 2017.

The homegrown automajor launched the Vitara Brezza within a price range of Rs 7.19 lakh - Rs 9.66 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), while the petrol version will be priced lower than its diesel derivative. It is offered in LDi, LDi (O), VDi, VDi (O), ZDi, ZDi+ and ZDi+ dual tone trims with the choices of six colours.

Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza comes with features like smartplay infotainment system with inbuilt navigation, electrically foldable ORVMs with integrated turn-indicators, projector headlamps, cooled glove box, cruise control and a reverse parking camera. In terms of safety, it comes packed with driver front passenger airbag and ABS with EBD.

Speaking of the engine specs, the latest reports suggests that the petrol variants of the Vitara Brezza will most likely to come with a 1.5-litre petrol engine that will crank out a maximum power of 100 bhp while transmission duties will be carried out with either a 5-speed manual transmission or a automatic gearbox, while the company may consider a 1.0 litre BoosterJet mill as well. Currently, the Vitara Brezza is powered by a 1.2-litre 200 DDiS diesel mill that generates 88.5 bhp at 4,000rpm with 200Nm of peak torque at 1,750rpm and comes connected to a 5-speed manual gearbox with best-in-class fuel efficiency of 24.3 kmpl.

The Brezza compact SUV currently stands with a waiting period of around eight months, where the surging demand for the Vitara Brezza and company’s premium hatchback Baleno is also said to be delaying the launch of the Ignis and the Baleno RS in India.
