The 2022 Suzuki Vitara Brezza.
The Suzuki Vitara is a series of SUV produced by Suzuki in four generations since 1998. The second and third generation models were known as the Suzuki Grand Vitara, with the fourth and current series eschewing the Grand prefix. In Japan and a number of other markets, all generations have used the name Suzuki Escudo.
The Vitara Brezza crossover with a length of 3,995 mm debuted in 2016, it was created especially for India, production is also established there, the cars are produced by Maruti Suzuki, Suzuki subsidiary. In 2017 to 2019 the model topped the list of the best selling SUV in this country, but at the end of 2020 it only had the third line, which is 34% less than in the previous year.
The Vitara Brezza result is still very good, given that after last year restyling it changed the diesel engine, so beloved by the Indians, to a gasoline engine, while competitors have a heavy fuel engine, and the Koreans also have a gasoline line wider. And now the second generation Maruti Suzuki cross is on its way, according to Autocar India, such a model can be presented at the end of this year. However, the publication does not exclude the return of the diesel engine.
According to Autocar, the second Vitara Brezza will be based on the Heartect platform on which all the latest Suzuki are built the first generation cross is based on the old Swift cart. This platform will allow the introduction of new security systems, but which ones are not specified. By the way, in the arsenal of even the most expensive current Brezza there are only two airbags, there is also cruise control and a rear view camera.
The Vitara Brezza will retain the K15B 1.5 petrol aspirated engine, on the current model it produces 105 horsepower. At the same time, Autocar will also read the modernized mild hybrid system to the cross, they say, with it the crossover will become even more economical. And now about the diesel, the Indians write that the SUV can get a 1.5 liter engine, although the power has not yet been revealed.
The pre reform Brezza had a 90 horsepower 1.3 turbodiesel, it was replaced with a gasoline engine, since India switched to the new BS6 eco-standards, analogous to Euro 6, and it would be too expensive to bring the old diesel engine to them. The current Vitara Brezza does not have all wheel drive, the new cross too, will most likely be offered only in front wheel drive, since 4×4 versions are not in demand in the Indian market.
