    Currently, the Vitara Brezza is available only with the DDiS 200 diesel engine that produces peak power at 89 bhp and peak torque at 200 Nm, mated to 5-speed manual transmission. The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza was launched in India at INR 7.19 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi).

    According to the reports, the Vitara Brezza will get the 1.0L Boosterjet petrol engine. The same engine is expected to empower the upcoming Baleno RS. The 1.0L Boosterjet is a new engine developed by Maruti Suzuki under their 'TransformOtion' concept and the manufacturer is planning to introduce the petrol version of Vitara Brezza in all three variants- L, V, Z.

     

    The 1.0L Boosterjet engine is likely to produce 110hp of maximum power and 170 Nm of peak torque and is expected to be paired with the same 5-speed manual transmission. Currently, Maruti Suzuki is working on improving the performance of the engine in order to increase the fuel efficiency.

    However, despite being available in diesel trim only, Vitara Brezza has won the hearts of its customers and according to reports, Maruti has also managed to sell around 17,382 units of the compact SUV, which has overtaken the Ford EcoSport as the preferred compact SUV in the country.
