I don't get the fact why MSIL doesn't offer CVT on cars other than baleno and sticks with the age old 4-speed torque converter

Highly unlikely this is going to be 48V. Had it been, MS would have advertised it in yesterday's launch. Having said that the difference in mileage figures for Brezza it is more than that of current SVHS-K15 models.

Same old design with a few nips and tucks. There is little more to it in terms of design change. Interiors - no changes at all of any note. They could have at least used this opportunity to spruce up and offer more modern looking interiors.

The only saving grace in my eyes is the Torque Blue colour. Used to own my Swift in this colour, and it is an absolutely fantastic one. Good to see it return to the stable after a few years' hiatus.

Default Maruti Vitara Brezza @ Auto Expo 2020

Big shoutout to Rehaan for shooting these pictures & his coverage of the Auto Expo. Thanks for sharing, man!

Maruti unveiled the Brezza petrol with the BS6 complaint 1.5L K-series petrol engine. It is also offered with an automatic gearbox in a mild hybrid avatar. New dual tone colours include Sizzling Red with midnight Black roof, Torque Blue with midnight Black roof and Granite Grey with Autumn Orange roof.

Expect massive crowds when Maruti launches a new car (even though a facelift):

Lots of action on the stage:

The floor tilted into this position:

Front grille gets chrome treatment. Notice the LED DRLs:

Dual tone paint scheme looks good:

Twin barrel LED projectors:

Changes to the side are minimal:

Black cladding along the wheel arch and floor:

Dual tone 16-inch alloys shod in 215/60-section Apollo Alnac 4g tyres:

Rear gets revised tail lamps and minor change in the black portion of the skid plate down below. Notice the lack of manufacturer and variant badging:

The lights now jut out a bit:

Take a look at the design elements from the side:

This comes on when lights are activated:

Not many changes to the insides:

Same steering wheel carried over...

Seat fabric remains unchanged:

BS6 complaint 1.5L petrol engine is a tight fit:

An engine cover would have looked nice:

The Brezza now comes with an automatic gearbox:

Good ol' 4-speed torque converter comes paired with the Smart Hybrid 1.5L engine. Yes, only the AT gets the Li-ion battery and the integrated starter generator:

The manual's FE is rated at 17.03 km/l while the AT (with Smart Hybrid) is claimed to offer 18.76 km/l:

Instrument cluster of the Automatic:

Only the automatic gets this smart hybrid badge:

Thanks. Corrected. It's the automatic that gets the Smart Hybrid.

Maybe to differentiate with the S-Cross but could have been provided with the ZXI+ variant at least (if not planned already and if the display vehicle is of a lower variant).

Even the display S Cross petrol doesn't get a color MID. Another rumour is that even the S Cross MT petrol won't get the SHVS.

I don't really mind what they've done with the exteriors of the car with this facelift. I always liked the clean and simple lines and think this looks classy as is. What bugs me tho, is that Maruti-Suzuki completely turned a blind eye to all the complaints from people about the interiors of the car. No upgrade to quality, no change in the boring design, no change in color schemes, same old outdated steering wheel, not even any new features! Wonder what was in their mind? That it sells so much, we don't need to care to update it? Really stupid.

Looking at Marutis current range, especially S-Cross, Brezza, Ciaz, I cant help but think of them like ,say the One Plus 7 range or Iphone range of products. Essentially similar in terms of power and basic function, with a few tweaks here and there. Oh, and add Ertiga/XL6 for equivalent Pro/Max sub-categories.

It used to sell as a diesel.

Will be interesting if they can get at least 75% of the earlier sales in petrol-only (plus the convenience of AT) format.

I agree to disagree. Vitara brezza is way past it's mid-life facelift (launched in 2016 i suppose). It may can afford to skip major visual upgrades for another 2-3 years but can't say that about features and drive-train. They could've atleast offered functional features like wireless charging, hill hold assist. Sooner or later the new entrants(both domestic & foreign) will take on this segment with efficient pricing and feature loaded turbo powered units. Brezza might get outmatched in that case owing to MSIL's sheer lack of enthusiasm with turbo petrol engines.

My friend's diesel Brezza is doing 24 KMPL in heavy traffic. This claims 17 in what are considered to be ideal conditions. Maruti is sacrificing the only reason people ignore their build quality flaws, excellent FE. If they don't come up with a decent BS6 diesel soon, they can expect heavy losses in their "bigger car" sales.

I'm not sure if it will manage even 50% of the sales it used to do earlier. The fuel efficiency of petrol variant is a big downer. Those with good running will surely avoid this. The diesels of rivals are anyday superior.
