Reportedly, the new Maruti Vitara Brezza facelift is likely to be available with a sunroof and side-airbags in the top-spec variant.
Maruti Vitara Brezza is soon going to get a facelift, which will give it new engines and some feature additions as well. It received a mild facelift last year, which gave it some cosmetic upgrades.
Team-BHP reveals that the new Maruti Vitara Brezza might get a sunroof on the top-end variant. Also, side airbags will be included in the safety features list, again on the top-end variant. As per Team-BHP, a Notice Inviting Tender (NIT) has been sent to vendors.
In its competition, Ford EcoSport, Hyundai Venue and Mahindra XUV300 are already offered with electric sunroof on the higher variants. Tata Nexon does not get an electric sunroof, but the manufacturer will officially equip a regular sunroof at a premium of Rs 16,000.
Technically, Vitara Brezza is the only one without a sunroof. So adding this would make the sales of Brezza even better. As of now, no Maruti car is equipped an electric sunroof.
Hyundai Venue and Ford EcoSport get 6 airbags, whereas XUV300 gets 7 airbags. With the new Maruti Vitara Brezza getting side airbags, only Nexon will be the one left out of the competition.
Along with this, Brezza will also get new engines. Currently, it is available with the 1.3 Litre diesel engine, which will be shelved after BS-6 norms. The new 1.5 Litre diesel and the 1.5 Litre Petrol with mild-hybrid will make its way on the Brezza.
The new petrol engine and diesel engines made their debut on the new Ciaz, which was launched in end of 2018. The diesel engine is likely going to be discontinued post April 2020 for some time.
The petrol engine produces 103 BHP and 138 Nm of peak torque. The 1.5 Litre diesel puts out 94 BHP and 225 Nm of torque, both available with the options of a 5-speed manual gearbox and a 5-speed AMT.
With this, the prices of the new Brezza will also increase. The petrol engine will be BS-6 compliant, but will take some time to be launched. We expect an increase of Rs 20000-25000 in the prices of the top-end variants.
