Maruti 2022 Next-Gen Brezza will Continue to rival kia Sonet & Hyundai Venu
Next-gen Brezza – new details One of the key updates that next-gen Brezza is expected to get is a 6-speed automatic transmission. This will be replacing the existing 4-speed unit. The automatic option is available with top-spec mild-hybrid variants of Brezza. Other variants come with 5-speed manual transmission. The engine will be the same as the current model, the K15B 1.5 litre petrol motor that is capable of generating 104 bhp of max power and 138 Nm of peak torque. In line with evolving consumer preferences and rival offerings, next-gen Brezza could also get wireless charging and sunroof. As of now, none of Maruti's cars has a sunroof. It has been the company’s opinion that a sunroof is not suitable for a largely hot and humid country like India. A sunroof also makes the air conditioner work harder.
CNG and diesel option
There is speculation that CNG and diesel options may be introduced for next-gen Brezza. While CNG will bring down the cost of ownership as well as operational costs, the diesel variant could add the torque that enthusiasts may be missing with the current petrol variant. Maruti already has a 1.5-liter DDiS diesel engine that could be offered with next-gen Brezza. It just needs to be updated to comply with BS6 emission norms. In other changes, next-gen Brezza will get the Heartect platform. It offers a range of benefits such as improved safety, better impact absorption, and greater control and stability. Maruti cars like Ertiga, XL6, Baleno, Dzire, Swift, WagonR, and S-Presso already have the Heartect platform.
