Spy photos of the upcoming 2020 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza petrol facelift have yet again surfaced online, and this time around the SUV can be seen with the company’s Smart Hybrid Vehicle from Suzuki (SHVS) badging. Currently, the company only offers the 1.5-litre K15 petrol engine with SHVS technology in India, which indicates the Vitara Bezza too will get the same engine that does duty on the Ciaz, Ertiga and XL6. While the existing Vitara Brezza 1.3 diesel comes with the option on an AMT/AGS transmission, the upcoming petrol model will possibly feature the 4-speed torque converter that is offered with the aforementioned cars, in addition to the 5-speed manual gearbox.
The new petrol SHVS engine delivers a claimed power of 103.5bhp at 6000 rpm and a peak torque of 138 Nm at 4,400rpm. With a manual gearbox, it promises fuel economy of 19.34 kmpl. The 2020 Maruti Vitara Brezza petrol will come with a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic gearbox options. The carmaker will discontinue the existing 89bhp, 1.3L DDiS diesel engine.
The 2020 Maruti Vitara Brezza petrol will also witness minor changes inside and out. The LED headlamps will get new details along with the new DRLs. While the front grille will remain unchanged, its bumper will be reprofiled. You will notice new LED detailing in the taillamps. Ditching the silver finish, the rear bumper and faux diffuser will get black finish.
No changes will be made to its dimensions. The interior will look refreshing with subtle updates. The 2020 Maruti Vitara Brezza petrol is likely to come with new seat upholstery and a revised instrument cluster along with the updated touchscreen infotainment system.
Prices of the new Vitara Brezza petrol are likely to be less or more similar to the current model. At present, the subcompact SUV comes in the price range of Rs 7.62 lakh – Rs 10.64 lakh (ex-showroom). It will continue to take on the Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport and Mahindra XUV300. The upcoming Kia Sonet (Kia QYi) will also give a tough fight to the new Vitara Brezza.
