The new 2022 Maruti Suzuki Brezza is expected to go on sale in India on June 30.
Maruti Suzuki India is gearing up to launch the updated version of its sub-compact SUV, the Maruti Suzuki Brezza. Yes, the company has removed ‘Vitara’ from the name and now the model will simply be called Brezza. The automaker has released the first teaser of the new Brezza and bookings for the SUV have begun. Interested customers can now pre-order the SUV for a token of ₹11,000 either at an Arena showroom or online. While the Brezza was redesigned in 2020, this time the company is giving the subcompact SUV a major makeover in terms of styling, features and technology. In addition to the various updates, the Brezza will now also come with an updated engine with a 6-speed automatic transmission, 6 airbags and an Electronic Stability Program or ESP.

Maruti Suzuki has said the new Brezza will come with the next-generation Smart Hybrid K-Series engine, which we believe will be the 1.5-litre dual-jet, twin VVT petrol engine introduced with the XL6. . The engine offers approximately 102 hp and 135 Nm of peak torque, and is supplied in combination with a mild hybrid system. The transmission will be handled by a 5-speed manual transmission, but the older 4-speed automatic has now been replaced by a 6-speed torque converter with paddle shifters.
CV Raman, Chief Technical Officer (Engineering), Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said: “The all-new Hot and Techy Brezza comes with enhanced design, performance, technology and safety features to delight Brezza enthusiasts and aspirants. and Techy Brezza is a testament to our commitment to constantly evolving and we are confident it would bring tremendous satisfaction to our young urban customers.”
Based on the spy photos we’ve seen so far, the 2022 Maruti Suzuki Brezza will get a heavily updated look, with a slimmer grille with chrome inserts, flanked by a set of sharper-looking headlamps and new dual LED daytime running lights. The bumper also gets a more robust look thanks to the heavy cladding, silver faux skid plate and new fog lamps. There is more trim on the sides, with a new set of sporty alloy wheels and roof rails. The rear section also looks pretty sleek with new LED taillights and bumper, and it comes with big Brezza lettering in the center.
The cab has also been updated, with a sleeker layout, new features and much more technology. And yes, we are finally getting a sunroof too. Another batch of spy photos has revealed that Maruti has replaced the outgoing model’s rather simplistic designed dashboard with a new tiered unit with a prominent colored insert that runs along the center. The touchscreen is now larger (the Brezza gets the new SmartPro system on the top variants) and is a freestanding unit on top of the center console with the air vents just below. The car will also come with a new flat-bottomed steering wheel, automatic climate control, cruise control and rear vents (a feature that was missing on the current Vitara Brezza).
