Set to launch on June 30, the 2022 Maruti Brezza will feature a 1.5-litre K-Series Dualjet Dual-VVT naturally-aspirated motor from the Ertiga and XL6.
The 2022 Maruti Brezza is about to make its appearance on Jun 30, 2022, but the chances of it getting the cost-effective CNG powertrains are slim at the moment. Brezza is one of the most prominent products in the compact SUV segment. Maruti is launching the second-gen version to tackle the growing competition from the likes of the recently facelifted Hyundai Venu and the hot-selling Tata Nexon. As per the leaked images, the new-gen Maruti Brezza will feature evolved styling that will make it looks fresher whilst maintaining its original identity.

New-Gen Maruti Brezza CNG
The Hyundai Venue and Tata Nexon already offer diesel engines for people looking for low running costs, while Maruti doesn’t have a diesel mill ever since the advent of the BS6 norms. On top of that, the chances of the new Brezza getting a CNG option right from the onset are non-existent. At a later stage though, if Maruti feels that the sales of the Brezza are suffering due to the lack of a diesel engine option, it might introduce the CNG version. After all, we have seen Maruti bowing down to the demand of the customers in the case of offering a sunroof. Initially, the company was against it but took a U-turn because of the customer demand. Similarly, a S-CNG version might be introduced in case its B-SUV buyers seek low running cost.

The engine specifications of the 2022 Maruti Brezza have a high chance to be the same as those of the recently launched Ertiga and XL6. Both these have an updated 1.5-litre K-Series Dualjet Dual-VVT petrol engine with Smart Hybrid technology. This engine makes 103 hp and 137 Nm of peak power and torque. The transmission options include a 5-speed manual and a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission. The prices of the current Brezza range from Rs 7.84 lakh to Rs 11.49 lakh, ex-showroom.

We could expect the new Brezza to start at around Rs 8 lakh and go a little above what the top trim current retails for. It would be interesting to see if the prices of the 2022 Hyundai Venue will have any bearing on the prices of the Brezza. Let us know whether you want a CNG powertrain option with the Brezza or not?
