2020 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Petrol Facelift - Engine Spec Comparison

The Brezza has a 1.5-litre normal petrol engine, which makes 105PS of power and 138Nm of torque. Besides the Venue’s 1.2-litre normal petrol engine, it’s the only 4-cylinder engine in its category. 4 cylinder engines are inherently balanced and therefore are more refined and smooth.

The Brezza’s power output is on the lower side, as it only beats the Venue’s less powerful 1.2-litre engine. Similarly, its torque output is also very low and only better than the Venue’s 1.2-litre engine. But its middle-of-the-road configuration should suffice for most buyers.

In the fuel efficiency area, it trumps with a figure of 18.7kmpl with the automatic transmission and 17.0kmpl with the manual transmission. It’s incredible because despite the gas guzzling torque converter automatic, the Brezza delivers a phenomenal fuel efficiency. That’s because the automatic transmission variants also get the mild-hybrid technology, which negates the torque converter’s low fuel efficiency in city traffic situations.

2020 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Petrol Facelift - Dimension Comparison

The Brezza retains the dimensions of the outgoing model and is still neither the widest nor the narrowest. It’s also neither the tallest nor the shortest. Its wheelbase, though, is barely longer than that of the car with the shortest wheelbase in this segment - Tata Nexon. Boot space and ground clearance are again par for the course.

2020 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Petrol Facelift - LXI Variant

The LXI variant costs Rs. 7.34 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and it gets all the basic features like a music system, halogen projector headlamps, front and rear power windows, electrically-adjustable outside mirrors, body-coloured door handles and outside mirrors. The usual safety suite is also included which adds rear parking sensors, ABS and 2 front airbags among others. This is a very well kitted option as it gets a lot of must-haves and a few good-to-have features.

2020 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Petrol Facelift - VXI Variant

The VXI variant costs Rs. 8.35 lakh. It’s almost Rs. 1.0 lakh more expensive than the LXI variant. It adds a lot of functional features like automatic AC, keyless entry with push-button start/stop, LED projector headlamps, electrically-folding outside mirrors, , illuminated glovebox and footwell, and steering-mounted controls. However, our calculations do not justify the Rs. 1.0 lakh premium over the LXI variant. While it does have some features, which you can’t easily get from the aftermarket, we’d still not recommend buying the VXI variant.

With the VXI variant, there’s also the option of getting the automatic transmission. It’s a 4-speed torque converter unit and it adds mild-hybrid technology for better fuel efficiency. The price difference is Rs. 1.4 lakh over the VXI MT. Buy this variant only if you’re on a tight budget. We’d suggest stretching your budget and looking at the ZXI variant.

2020 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Petrol Facelift - ZXI Variant

The ZXI variant costs Rs. 9.1 lakh. It’s Rs. 75,000 more expensive than the VXI variant. For that price, it adds touchscreen infotainment with smartphone connectivity, rear armrest, black alloy wheels, cruise control, rear washer and wiper and a few other goodies. This variant is our top recommended variant and it justifies the premium of Rs. 1.76 lakh over the LXI variant.

2020 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Petrol Facelift - ZXI Plus Variant

The ZXI Plus variant costs Rs. 9.75 lakh and is Rs. 65,000 more expensive over the ZXI variant. It gets features like LED fog lamps, reversing camera, automatic wipers and headlamps, automatic dimming inside mirror, machined alloy wheels, front armrest and the option of dual-tone body colour.

Since most of these features fall in the good-to-have category, you can skip this variant. Some of these features like dual-tone roof, camera, front armrest and LED fog lamps are such that you can also choose to add to the car later during the ownership. So, the ZXI Plus variant is not recommended.

2020 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Petrol Facelift - Which Variant To Buy?

The LXI variant is a great option for those on a budget. It covers most features expected from a car in this category and price range. You can buy this and add aftermarket features to customize it to your taste.

The VXI variant adds a lot of crucial features but the price doesn’t justify the upgrade. If you can’t stretch any further, then you can buy this variant. But, we’d suggest that you consider the ZXI variant instead. It’s the most value-for-money variant even if you consider LXI as the baseline.

Go for the ZXI Plus variant only if you want those feel-good features. Consider getting the ZXI variant and adding some of those features later during the ownership.
