Maruti Brezza 2022 will be released in mid-June this year, with a more advanced feature set than the current model.
Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) has a slew of new vehicles on the way, including an updated Ertiga and XL6, as well as a heavily revised Brezza and an all-new midsize five-seater SUV before the end of the calendar year. In 2023, MSIL appears to be introducing a compact crossover based on the Baleno.
In addition, the long-awaited Jimny lifestyle off-roader is expected to debut next year, and the S-CNG range will be expanded across the portfolio. By the middle of June 2022, the Indo-Japanese manufacturer is expected to release the heavily updated Brezza with a long list of changes.
To begin with, the Vitara prefix may be dropped, as the sub-four-metre SUV will most likely be referred to simply as the Brezza. We know the exterior changes that will be involved with the 2022 Brezza thanks to the leaked undisguised pictures. The new Brezza has a brand new front fascia and noticeable changes to the rear, similar to the recently launched Baleno.
It will continue to be built on the Global C platform, but structural improvements are possible, potentially allowing the SUV to achieve five stars in the Global NCAP crash tests, making it the safest Maruti Suzuki model ever. The compact SUV has dominated the segment since its launch in early 2016, but competition has increased in recent years.
To address it, a redesigned front grille section with new inserts, sleeker LED headlights and new LED DRLs, flatter bonnet, new 16-inch two-tone alloy wheels, updated LED taillights and tailgate, revised front and rear bumpers, new body panels, and other changes are included. There will be no dimensional changes, and the tall pillars will remain.
The 2022 Maruti Suzuki Brezza gets a new interior that includes a more modern dash and centre console, an updated instrument console, a floating nine-inch SmartPlay Pro+ touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HUD, connective tech, sunroof, 360-degree camera, a flat-bottom steering wheel, more premium surface materials, six airbags, Hill Hold function in AT, cruise control, push-button start/stop, and more.
Some of the features listed above are unique to a Maruti Suzuki SUV, and it may also be the first compact SUV to offer a CNG powertrain. A 1.5-litre four-cylinder K15C DualJet petrol engine with progressive mild-hybrid technology could be installed under the hood. It will be mated to either a five-speed manual or a new six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.
