Maruti Vitara Brezza Petrol Launch Details, Expected Price, Specs

Maruti Vitara Brezza

– Maruti Vitara Brezza petrol will take on Tata Nexon petrol and Ford EcoSport petrol.

– The new model is reported to use Suzuki’s new 1.5L petrol engine with an AMT gearbox.

Launched in March 2016, the Maruti Vitara Brezza has turned out to be a huge success for the Indo-Japanese carmaker in the Indian market. The company has been constantly selling over 10,000 units of the subcompact SUV, which makes it the top-selling SUV in the country. The company had introduced the AMT version of the compact SUV in 2018, which is priced at Rs 8.54 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). In order to further improve sales, Maruti Suzuki is planning to launch the petrol powered Brezza. The Maruti Vitara Brezza petrol version is likely to arrive in the late 2019 or early 2020.


In recent years, buyers’ interest has shifted towards the petrol cars. The reason behind this shift is the narrowing gap between petrol and diesel prices as well as low maintenance and long life of petrol-driven cars. Seeing the growing demand for petrol vehicles, the Indo-Japanese maker is now planning to launch the petrol iteration of the Brezza in the country. Maruti Suzuki currently has 2 petrol engines, which could power the petrol Brezza. The company has recently introduced a new 1.5-litre K15B unit in the Ciaz and Ertiga. The company could use this engine to power the Brezza petrol. Maruti could also opt for the turbocharged 1.0-litre 3-cylinder Boosterjet engine to power the Brezza.

Maruti Vitara Brezza Petrol Launch Date

Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) hasn’t yet made any official launch announcement about the Vitara Brezza petrol’s model. It is expected that the petrol iteration of the Brezza might see a release in late 2019, possibly around November-December. Media reports claim that the company will start manufacturing BSVI engines in December. This suggests that a possible launch in the first quarter of 2019 can’t be ignored.

Variant Expected Price
Base Model Rs 7.5 lakh
Top Model Rs 10 lakh

According to new reports, Maruti Suzuki might use the new 1.5-litre K15B naturally aspirated petrol engine for the Brezza petrol. The same powertrain also powers the new-generation Ertiga MPV and the Ciaz facelift. With the new, more powerful motor, the Vitara Brezza petrol is likely to be priced equivalent to its diesel counterparts. Prices of the SUV’s petrol iteration are estimated to start Rs 7.5 lakh and go up to Rs 10 lakh. If launched at this price point, the Brezza petrol will directly compete with the Tata Nexon petrol and the Ford EcoSport petrol.

Maruti Vitara Brezza Petrol Specifications

Engine 1.0-litre Boosterjet Petrol
Max Power 100.5bhp
Max Torque 150Nm
Transmission 5-speed Manual

Earlier the Brezza petrol was rumoured to get the 1.0-litre Boosterjet engine that also powers the Baleno RS. This 3-cylinder, turbocharged engine is capable of producing a maximum power output of 100.5bhp at 5,500rpm and a peak torque of 150Nm between 1,700rpm to 4,500rpm. It is likely to be paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox.

New media report claims that the SUV might receive Suzuki’s new 1.5-litre petrol engine that also powers the Ciaz facelift and Ertiga MPV. This engine comes fitted with Suzuki’s smart hybrid system, which is called SHVS. While powering the Ciaz, this engine churns out 103bhp of power and 138Nm of torque. With mild-hybrid system, the petrol model of the SUV is likely to be as fuel economical as the diesel variant. Not just petrol, the Brezza will also receive a new 1.5-litre diesel engine. Set to replace the ageing 1.3L MJD unit, this engine is claimed to offer 104bhp of power and 225Nm of torque. Read – Maruti Suzuki Zen To Make A Comeback As Compact SUV

As mentioned above, the Indo-Japanese carmaker might offer the Brezza petrol with its new 1.5-litre engine with SHVS technology. If this happens, the SUV’s new model will surely be more frugal than its arch rivals. Read: New Maruti Suzuki Alto – What To Expect?

    I liked the Breeza model very much.
    could it be having a seater suv for a family in the upcoming model with a petrol/diesel engine?
    It would be a best combination I find in the maruti suzuki with the so many competitors in the market.

      Though no clarity on its launch date as of now, we expect the petrol version to be launched by the end of this year. If launched, it will either get the 1.4-litre K-series petrol or a 1.0-litre Boosterjet petrol engine. The Boosterjet petrol is a turbocharged petrol mill that will return power close to 108bhp.
