Other than that, the ZXI variant somewhat justifies the cost over the lower variants with the additional features. It’s our top recommended variant for Brezza buyers for its acceptable value for money and a fairly balanced set of features.

On the value front though, the ZXI Plus justifies the jump over the ZXI and it’s worth buying if you want some of these features. For most Brezza buyers, though, the ZXI will suffice, which remains our top recommendation.

Which Variant Of The Maruti Suzuki Brezza Petrol Should You Buy?

The 2022 Maruti Brezza’s VXI variant is quite expensive for the features it adds over the LXI variant. So, we’ll suggest buying the LXI variant and adding accessories to it instead of buying the VXI, which offers poor value for money. If you want the VXI’s features, then consider stretching your budget to accommodate the ZXI. While the ZXI variant also doesn’t completely justify the incremental cost over the base LXI variant, it offers much better value than the VXI variant. ZXI is our top recommended variant for Brezza buyers. From there, the ZXI Plus also has a decent value-for-money score, but not enough must-have features to warrant an upgrade. If you find the features of the ZXI Plus variant compelling enough, then you can consider buying it over the ZXI.

Just like the Brezza petrol-manual, the Brezza automatic’s VXI variant is expensive and lacks a few important features too. So, consider stretching your budget for the ZXI trim as it offers much better value for money over the VXI automatic. If you want the fully-loaded ZXI Plus variant, then the ZXI Plus also offers a decent value for money and is worth buying. It’s worth noting that the automatic transmission itself carries a premium of Rs. 1.50 lakh over the manual’s ex-showroom price. So, you’re paying a higher premium than what we expect for the convenience of automatic transmission.

What Are The Engine Specifications Of The Maruti Suzuki Brezza Petrol?

Among B2-segment’s non-turbo petrol SUVs, the Brezza has the biggest displacement of 1.5L and it naturally has best power and torque figures as well. While offering better performance, the Brezza’s 1.5L mild-hybrid engine also promises better efficiency of almost 20kmpl.

*Estimated

The Brezza’s non-turbo petrol engine has trouble competing with turbo petrol engines. The turbo petrol engines offer far better torque output for a wider RPM range to provide easier drivability at low to mid-range RPMs. in terms of power, the smaller 1.0L turbo petrol engines have no trouble matching or beating the Brezza’s 103PS figure. Even in terms of mileage, the Magnite and Kiger turbo petrol-manual narrowly beat the Brezza’s fuel efficiency figure. However, with the automatic, the Brezza is the clear winner in the segment despite a power sapping torque converter automatic transmission. Speaking of automatic, the new 2022 Brezza also gets a new 6-speed torque converter automatic, which replaces the older 4-speed automatic.
