Hybrid Tech Coming Soon To Manual Variants Of 2020 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Petrol

An official document suggests that the manual transmission variants of the 2020 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza petrol could soon be getting a fuel efficiency boost. The petrol mileage of the Vitara Brezza will certainly see an improvement with the addition of mild-hybrid technology. It’s currently available only in the automatic transmission variants of the Brezza petrol. Because of this, the automatic transmission variants deliver better fuel efficiency than the manual transmission variants despite using the old-school torque converter type unit.

With the addition of the petrol mild-hybrid technology, the manual transmission variants could see the official fuel efficiency figure jump to over 20.0kmpl. That would make the Vitara Brezza the most fuel-efficient petrol-powered subcompact SUV. We drove the Brezza petrol manual in traffic and it gave us a fuel efficiency of 13.6kmpl.

The same engine with the hybrid technology is available in the Ertiga and Ciaz, which have an ARAI-certified efficiency figure of 19.34kmpl and 21.56kmpl, respectively, with the manual transmission.
