In the network appeared the first photos of a facelifted Suzuki crossover without camouflage. It is expected that the car will receive the petrol engine from the neighbors in the lineup.
In India, the Maruti Suzuki Vitara crossover Brezza came out in 2016 (Maruti Suzuki is a local unit of Suzuki). The model immediately found the mass of buyers: in her first year she took second place in the SUV segment, it sold 85 168 units, ahead of its only SUV, Hyundai Creta. During the 2017-2018 model was ranked as the most popular crossovers (140 945 155 and 466 units, respectively). This year the figure has decreased: in January-October were sold 91 176 units (less by 30% than the previous year), as a result Vitara Brezza yielded first place to the Hyundai SUV.
To return interest in their model, Maruti Suzuki decided to update the cross. In September was published with pictures of the tests are “refreshed” SUV in camouflage, and now the network has pictures of the model without masking them was published by Rushlane.
Judging by the pictures, the SUV has received a different front bumper and grille, in addition to this, the form changed the fog lights. Daytime running lights integrated in the head optics. Dimensions Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza will not change: the actual length of the SUV is equal to 3995 mm (in India the owners of cars shorter than 4 meters is eligible for benefits). Interior photos of the updated Vitara Brezza still there. It is expected that the interior will update with new multimedia system and other finish materials.
During the restyling of the crossover, designed for the Indian market will receive the petrol engine K15B 1.5 liters with recoil 105 HP (torque – 138 Nm). This motor is in the line of other machines of the brand, such as the Ciaz sedan and Ertiga MPV. With these models it is complete with starter-generator, storing energy under braking (the manufacturer has given the system the name Smart Hybrid). Probably, this “appendage” will have the updated SUV. This engine is aggregated with 5МКП or 4АКП.
Urgent Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza equipped with only one engine, a 90 – strong turbodiesel and 1.3 DDiS (torque – 200 Nm). He is paired with either a five-speed “mechanics” or “automatic” (the second transmission, the model got in the last update). Drive – only the front.
After Brezza Vitara will get a petrol engine, it will probably be cheaper. Pre-reform crossover, equipped with a diesel motor, you can buy now at a price of 762 742 rupees ($10 700).
Recently it became known that Maruti Suzuki may launch the seven-seater SUV. Under the assumptions of the Indian media, he can get the name Vitara, as in this market the crossover with the same name are not presented. To competitors he promised the Hyundai Creta, the estimated release date is 2021. By the way, in the same year Vitara Brezza generation must change.
