I guess Maruti will try to do an Ertiga type SHVS to get 1.5L petrol classified under a lower GST slab. Maruti should either:

1. give Brezza a bigger Li battery to allow a real, noticeable boost in performance and fuel efficiency.

or

2. Skip the whole <4m small car benefit and actually make Brezza a bigger car with real bumpers. A longer wheel base and an overall length of around 4.3 meters will make it more spacious car inside and give it a larger boot. It will come to the current diesel Brezza price and could be positioned very well against Creta and XUV300.

Vitara Brezza coming in a petrol Variant in early 2020, will get the 1.5L engine as seen in Ertiga and Ciaz with the Smart Hybrid feature too.

Quote:
Despite the higher displacement, it won't be the most powerful engine in the class, however, it benefits from the Smart Hybrid tech and its torque-assist function to make up for the power deficit over its rivals. Furthermore, the lithium-ion battery-powered Smart Hybrid system will give it cleaner emissions, and a relatively healthy fuel economy for a petrol.
The Brezza 1.5 petrol will be offered with a choice of a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed torque converter automatic.

New reports indicate an earlier time-frame for release.

Is Maruti Suzuki getting inspiration from the lower power-train of Venue?

Brezza is rumored to being considered in 2 petrol engine variants.

Quote:
Vitara Brezza, which is available only with a diesel engine currently, will likely get the K12 1.2-litre four-cylinder engine (also seen on the Swift and Ignis) and the 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine (also seen on the Ciaz and Ertiga), which features smart hybrid system,

The 4 speed torque converter is so outdated. I am appalled in a age of 7/6 speed DSG's/DCT, 7 step CVT's, 6 speed TC's that Maruti thinks it can peddle this antique down our throats.

I have driven the four speed automatic & its so lacklustre it literally kills all the pleasure in driving your car. That transmission cripples the engine response & is the single reason i didn't go for an automatic when buying my Ciaz .Maruti needs to offer new generation automatics like rivals whether it may be DCT , CVT or even a six speed torque converter for the changing needs of the Indian consumer . Not everyone is content with th AMT .

Vitara Brezza and S Cross petrol variants are likely to be unveiled at the 2020 Auto Expo.

- The new 1.5-litre petrol engine for S Cross and in AT configuration too

- Apart from the 1.5 L(P), the Brezza could also get the 1.2-litre Dual Jet Dual VVT or the 1.0-litre Boosterjet (turbo). In AT variant too.

- To be priced at par or below their diesel counterparts.

Quote:
The Vitara Brezza, which is sold through regular Maruti Suzuki Arena dealerships, is expected to get the smaller 1.2-litre Dual Jet Dual VVT petrol engine (90PS/ 113Nm) with mild hybrid technology, that just made its debut on the Baleno. Since it is a sub-4m SUV and a petrol engine with a displacement of less than 1200cc will qualify for lower taxes applicable for sub-4m cars.

Just shows a lack of interest from Maruti. They plonked the 1.5L diesel in the Ertiga soon after it was introduced in the Ciaz.

It's been ages since both the Brezza and S-Cross were launched. Yet no sign of petrol models coming through.

Brezza must have had the 1.0L turbo along with the Baleno. Please don't bother with 1.2L. It's going to find it difficult to do anything in that heavy car.

Not advocating their choice of 1.2L in Brezza, but if they do so, it won't be horrible to drive. 1.2 K series was there in the Ritz which was the heaviest car IMO to have that engine(kerb weight of 1030kgs for the ZXi). Brezza petrol will be 50-60kgs heavier than Ritz which won't be that bad IMO. Of course it won't suit the car, but given how maruti has been pushing 1.3L diesel in their heavy cars, 1.2L in Brezza does seem probable, atleast for those class leading FE claims.

Baleno RS has not seen commercial success IMO and thus Maruti might stay away from that engine. Turbo petrols, if not driven properly, deliver very bad FE.

On the other hand, the 1.2 engine will give maruti tax advantage over the 1.5. Maruti's have never been known to be performance oriented and 1.2 will just suffice. If Maruti can sell all its cars with the 1.3 diesel when competition offers much more, it can easily sail with the 1.2. Remember, the Venue will also come with a 1.2 from the i20.

1.0 Boosterjet does duty abroad on the S-Cross and the Baleno with a 6 Speed AT. Since they are any way bringing in the boosterjet in India for the Baleno RS, wont this be a better proposition than a 1.2L AT, which also puts them head on with Venue 1.0 GDI ?

Suzuki has a six speed AT for sale outside India & they regress us with a 4 speed shitty AT that is way too bad to be even spoken about . Regarding the turbo petrols coming to India , forget about it . Maruti has no consideration about driving pleasure or bringing new age technology to our shores .

Brezza petrol to launch as early as September

- Maruti Vitara Brezza will likely get two petrol engines – 1.2L and 1.5L SHVS.

- The 1.5L motor will be available with both, manual and automatic transmissions.

The 1.2 WILL have to drive bigger and wider wheels though!

This will translate to a very poor initial pickup.

I am pretty sure Maruti wont put the 1.0 or 1.2 in the Vitara Brezza. Its an SUV and is heavier than the other models that these engines are used on.

1.5 petrol will give it the required low-end grunt to make the vehicle move and not feel totally dead during initial pickup.
