Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is all set for a generation that’s reported to debut in early 2022. The first clear images of the new model were recently leaked on the web revealing interesting exterior and interior details. According to a fresh media report, the automaker will remove the prefix ‘Vitara’ from its name and the model will be named new 2022 Maruti Brezza. The reason behind this decision is said to Suzuki’s globally sold Vitara SUV that might come to India in coming years. One must note that there is no official word on its India launch yet.

With the generation change, the subcompact SUV will receive significant changes inside and out.

Major updates have also been inside the cabin as well. The 2022 Maruti Brezza comes with a factory-fitted sunroof and a 360 degree camera. Reports suggest that the model will get connected car tech, wireless charging system, paddle shifters (for higher trims only), all-new free-standing infotainment system with smartphone connectivity, automatic AC unit and the brand’s new digital instrument cluster.
For power, the new 2022 Maruti Brezza will feature the same 1.5L K15B petrol engine that’s good enough for 103bhp and 138Nm. Rumour has it the compact SUV might get the stronger 48V hybrid technology instead of the mild hybrid system. The new Brezza model lineup will also be available with the CNG kit option. Both manual and automatic gearboxes will be on offer.
