Maruti Suzuki Brezza To Be The First Sub-4m SUV With CNG

Maruti Suzuki are likely to launch the new Brezza with a CNG option. It will then become the first sub-4 metre SUV with a factory-fit CNG. The launch is likely to take place in the near future, somewhere between April and May of 2022.

The Brezza currently gets a 1.5L  4-cylinder petrol engine, which is also available in the Ertiga. This 1.5L engine is a proven unit for CNG fitment as the Ertiga already comes with a CNG option. Also, the specifications of the CNG Brezza could align with the specs of Ertiga CNG as the engine is the same. Based on Ertiga CNG, here are the engine specs of the Brezza CNG:
