Test Mule Of The Next-generation Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, spotted testing for the first time

An extremely important model for Maruti, the Sub 4-metre SUV will be based on an all-new platform and promises better fuel efficiency

The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza might be one of the highest-selling compact SUVs in India. However, with the arrival of newer offerings from several automakers, the Vitara Brezza now feels a little long in the tooth. The Maruti’s SUV looks outdated and lacks a host of features that are offered by the competitors.

Maruti Suzuki is already on the track of addressing this fact and is readying up the new second-generation version of the Vitara Brezza among many other cars and SUVs. Recent footage of the test mule of the SUV was spied doing its regular test runs on the road, which shows a few possible details that might make their way into the production model.

Maruti Suzuki will launch eight new cars and one of them will be the next-generation Vitara Brezza

The test mule of the new Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza was heavily camouflaged, however, the new model will retain the upright and boxy stance of the current model. The new version will get a completely redesigned front profile with a new grille, new LED headlamps and bonnet lines. Even the rear profile of the SUV has been redesigned with new placement for the license plate at the bottom of the boot lid.

The new SUV will also become bigger in size but will remain a sub-4m vehicle, it will come to the Indian market next year

The tail lamps and rear bumper too will be restyled as a part of the upgrade.

An all-new cabin

The cabin will get an update as well and it will look much premium too

The spy video didn’t reveal much about the interior of the new Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza. Although, the SUV will come with a completely redesigned cabin that features a new wider layout for the dashboard, a bigger touchscreen infotainment system, and a new driver’s cockpit. While it is not clear, the new Vitara Brezza will get a majorly revised equipment list too, because it is the least equipped SUV in the current crowd of compact SUVs.

Will the new Vitara Brezza be more fuel-efficient?

The new Vitara Brezza will come with modern-age features including an all-LED headlamp system with projector lenses

In all likelihood, the new Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza will retain its current engine option of the 1.5-litre petrol engine, which is one of the most refined and reliable four-cylinder naturally aspirated engines available. The engine might see revisions to its power and torque outputs and will retain the transmission options of 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic. Currently, the automatic variants do come with a mild-hybrid setup for the engine, and in the new second-generation version, the system is likely to be made standard for the manual variants too.

Official unveiling sooner than you think
