2022 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza facelift spied testing
Maruti Suzuki will seemingly have a busy 2022 with the 2022 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza now being seen on test, following the new Alto, the mid-sized SUV being co-developed with Toyota and the mid-life update for the Baleno. The Vitara Brezza is expected to get a significant overhaul with this update with heavily reworked styling and interiors although the sub-four-metre SUV's Heartect architecture is expected to remain unchanged.
2022 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza exterior
Despite the heavy camouflage, the prototype reveals some notable styling changes are in store for the revised 2022 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza. The generally boxy look of the Brezza is expected to be carried forward although the fascia will most likely be heavily reworked to sport a much larger grille, a higher bonnet line, sharper headlamps and reworked bumpers. The images show that the SUV will remain largely identical in profile, with the straightforward body panels and large doors. The rear is expected to see significant changes again with a reworked bootlid and bumpers, as evidenced by the new number plate placement. A new set of alloy wheels should round off the changes.
2022 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza interior, features
On the inside, the 2022 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza should see a new dashboard along with new upholstery and materials. Notable changes here are expected to be a new infotainment possibly with wireless Android Auto/Apple Carplay and some level of connected-car features as well as the new steering wheel design that debuts on the new-gen Maruti Suzuki Celerio. Other than those the interior space and general layout is expected to remain unchanged. Safety features should be carried over from the current model.
2022 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza engine, specifications
The new changes should increase dimensions of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza marginally, although the 2,500mm wheelbase should remain unchanged. The facelifted 2022 Vitara Brezza is expected to continue with the same 1.5-litre petrol engine option. This motor makes 105PS and 138Nm torque and gets the Smart Hybrid tech to go with it. The motor is paired with either a five-speed manual or four-speed auto. The fuel efficiency of the manual is 17.03 kmpl and AT (automatic with Maruti's smart hybrid) is 18.76 kmpl which should remain similar with the update. A CNG option may also be added to the lineup.
2022 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza expected price, launch date, rivals
The revisions to the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza should also lead to a Rs 30,000 to Rs 40,000 price hike when it launches in India by the middle of 2022. The current Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is price between Rs 7.61 lakh and Rs 11.19 lakh. Rivals will continue to be the Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Kia Sonet, Nissan Magnite, Mahindra XUV300 and Renault Kiger.
