The 1.5-litre petrol engine will be offered on the Vitara Brezza. This engine will produce about 110bhp of power.

This will be coming with a five-speed manual transmission and there might be an automatic also that will be offered with it. This will be an all new engine from Suzuki.

It will be used to power the Brezza and many more vehicles. This isn’t a performance driven engine. This engine is more about good drivability and mileage.

The Brezza will have good mileage. At the same time, Maruti could even get the 1.0-litre BoosterJet engine on the Brezza. This will be a more powerful engine and it will be competing with Ford’s EcoBoost engine.

This engine is one of the best in its class and it will be offered with a new transmission. This could be a six-speed manual transmission also. The EcoBoost is all about performance.

The 1.5-litre petrol engine will be highly efficient. The 1.0-litre BoosterJet engine will be more about performance, if it is launched in India. The Baleno RS coming to India will get this engine. So, it will be easier to use it on the Brezza as well.

Maruti Vitara Brezza petrol colours

The Vitara Brezza petrol engine will be offered with six colour options: Blazing Red, Pearl Arctic White, Premium Silver, Granite Grey, Fiery Yellow and Cerulean Blue. There will be dual tone colour options but these will be offered in the ZXi+ variant only.
