We have lately been covering multitudes of articles related to the automobile sector, giving all of you a closer picture of what is to be released shortly in the market so that you all are updated with the latest spirals going on in the automobile sector.
Today’s highlight is Maruti Suzuki India Limited’s top-selling SUV in the country: Vitara Brezza. It has come to our knowledge that the compact SUV launched a facelifted version of Vitara Brezza yesterday.
Cosmetic Updates of Vitara Brezza
Like we said Vitara Brezza is MSIL’s top-selling SUV in the country. Even with the automobile sale slowdown in the country, the SUV has been on sale since early 2016 and it comfortably led its segment for more than three and half years.
However, after the launch of Hyundai Venue, the latter has given a strong competition to Vitara Brezza, as the former’s connectivity features and a wide range of powertrain options have been well-received among customers.
Thus, in order to extend the lifecycle of the existing model, Maruti Suzuki revamped its Vitara Brezza model and launched it yesterday. It is priced at Rs. 7.35 lakh for the entry-level variant and it goes all the way up to Rs. 11.40 lakh for the range-topping variant. The updated version has gotten cosmetic changes and new features on the inside along with a new powertrain.
Features of the Updated Model
The tried and tested 1.3-litre DDiS 200 four-cylinder diesel engine has been developing for years for Vitara Brezza. It has been replaced by a new mild-hybrid petrol engine that can also be found in the Ertiga, XL6 and Ciaz.
It has evolved into a highly powerful brand over the past 4 years. The all-new Vitara Brezza is bolder, sportier and more powerful.
The 1.3-litre oil-burner won’t be upgraded to BSVI emission standards. The petrol unit is good enough to produce a maximum power output of 104.7 PS at 6,600 rpm and 138 Nm of peak torque delivered at 4,600 rpm. It is paired with either a five-speed manual or a four-speed torque converter automatic transmission.
The ARAI-certified fuel efficiency stands at 17.03 kmpl for the manual variant and 18.76 kmpl for the smart hybrid automatic. The outgoing diesel was claimed capable of 24.3 kmpl. The front fascia adorns restyled front grille garnished in chrome while the round-shaped fog lamps get new black housing.
The projector headlamps have become sleeker than in the outgoing model along with the presence of an integrated LED Daytime Running Lights. It is also incorporated with front and rear faux skid plates, newly designed 16-inch twin-spoke precision cut alloy wheels, black coloured pillars with grey roof rails, updated LED tail lamps and two-tone paint scheme.
