Maruti Suzuki is about to axe the diesel unit for the Vitara Brezza. So here is the petrol-powered one instead. Yes, Maruti has officially commenced the production for the Vitara Brezza with a petrol engine.
The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza was launched in India back in 2016 and was a runaway success right from the start. At one point the Vitara Brezza scored a staggering 12,000 units sale per one (that is until the great Indian automobile crisis struck).
The Vitara Brezza was introduced as a diesel-only compact SUV from the beginning. This is what gave the Hyundai Venue an advantage over the Brezza in terms of flexibility.
Maruti Suzuki relied on the veteran 1.3-litre DDis Multi-Jet diesel engine sourced from Fiat as the heart for the Vitara Brezza.
The 1.3-litre diesel produced 90 ps with 200 Nm of peak torque mated to either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT (automatic manual transmission).
