Maruti Vitara Brezza Petrol model launch

Prices of the Maruti Brezza petrol are likely to start at Rs 7 lakh for the base variant, and go up to Rs 10 lakh for the top model.

Maruti Vitara Brezza has turned out to be a huge success for the Indo-Japanese carmaker in India. The company has been constantly selling over 10,000 units of this sub-4 meter SUV. In fact, the vehicle still commands a waiting period of over 6 months, despite production unit runs at full pace. What’s interesting is that Maruti offers the Brezza in the diesel version only. In recent years, buyers interest has shifted towards 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. The Maruti Vitara Brezza Petrol is expected to be launched by the end of this year, possibly around Diwali.

If media reports are to be believed, the petrol iteration of the Brezza could feature a 1.0-litre Boosterjet engine that also powers the Baleno RS. The company could also fit the 1.2-litre engine that is good for 83bhp and 110Nm of torque. Power will be transmitted to the front wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox. As a reminder, the diesel version is propelled by a 1.3-litre MJD unit producing 89bhp and 200Nm. The Brezza is expected to be highly fuel efficient, as the Baleno RS is claimed to return an ARAI certified fuel efficiency of 21.1kmpl. The Brezza petrol will directly rival the Tata Nexon petrol and Ford EcoSport petrol. Read More – Honda WRV Vs Maruti Vitara Brezza

Maruti Vitara Brezza Petrol Price in India

VariantExpected Price
Base ModelRs 7 lakh
Top ModelRs 10 lakh

Usually, the petrol models of the vehicles are cheaper than their diesel counterparts. But, the Vitara Brezza’s Boosterjet petrol engine will be an imported model that will surely increase its pricing. This model could be priced in the range of Rs 7 lakh – Rs 10 lakh. If Maruti uses the locally developed 1.2-litre K-Series engine, the Vitara Brezza petrol could cost Rs 60,000 to Rs 1 lakh less than the diesel variant. Read – Maruti Suzuki to Launch 12 New Cars in India Within Next 2 Years

    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.

      The Brezza petrol and diesel automatic versions will be offered in a 5-seat version only. Both models are expected to launch early next year.

    I want to buy a new car in 2017 I had a option for kuv 100 or was thinking of going for a maruti swift or waiting for the new maruti swift 2017 to be launched , now after going through the engine specification of the maruti vitara brezza petrol I am confused I wanted to know if the engine has a turbo charger because the engine specification say booster jet engine and if there is a turbo charger then you guys should say turbocharged because a turbocharger makes a huge difference in the performance, the mileage, the pick up and the efficiency and the maintenance pls let me also know the launch date so that I can have a choice of selection let me know your dealers in Margao Goa thanks John

      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.
