Reports suggest that the Maruti Vitara Brezza facelift would still be sold from the Arena dealerships, but a premium version of it will go through Nexa.
Maruti is going to launch the Vitara Brezza Petrol very soon, which will replace the existing diesel engine. With that, Maruti might also upgrade the sub-compact SUV with a mild facelift, which was due from a long time.
Now, reports suggest that Maruti is planning for two versions of the Vitara Brezza. The regular model will be sold through the Arena dealerships. However, there will be a premium version as well, which will go through the Nexa dealerships.
Through the Arena dealerships, Maruti sells the Alto, WagonR, S-Presso, Swift, Dzire, Ertiga and the Vitara Brezza. Baleno, Ciaz, S-Cross, Ignis and the XL6 are sold through the Nexa dealerships. Basically, Nexa was created for premium cars.
If noted, similar is the case with Ertiga and XL6. The newly launched XL6 is based on the Ertiga, but gets some changes in styling. On the XL6, there is blacked-out body cladding, revised bumpers, new headlamp design and 6-seater configuration instead of the 7-seater in Ertiga.
The report says that a similar scene can happen with the Vitara Brezza. Recently, the new Vitara Brezza was spied testing fully camouflaged, which could very well be the premium version of it as well. The premium Brezza could be based on the top-spec VXi and ZXi trims.
Inside the cabin, there might be changes as well. While the dashboard design might remain the same, all-black leather upholstery might be used. More features could also be offered in the premium version compared to the standard Brezza.
Similarly, the Maruti Vitara Brezza will also spawn the next sub-compact SUV from Toyota. Although Toyota recently unveiled the Raize C-SUV, but in India, we might get a rebadged version of the Brezza itself. Unlike the Glanza-Baleno scenario, Toyota’s C-SUV will look totally different from Brezza.
