Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza completely developed in India

18 Jan 2016 / 0

The upcoming Maruti Vitara Brezza which will be showcased at the Auto Expo 2016 will be a grounds up product for the company. The bigger news is that the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza has been built entirely inhouse and under the supervision of C V Raman, executive director of engineering at MSIL.

This is the first project where the Indian R&D team led from the front. The global R&D team didn’t have a say in this project and the entire decisions were taken by the inhouse R&D team. Maruti first showcased the Vitara Brezza as a concept at the 2012 Auto Expo, in the form of the XA-Alpha concept. Nearly four years later, the new Vitara Brezza is ready to be showcased in its production form. This is generally the time frame that Suzuki’s R&D team usually takes for a concept to be put into production.

Expect the sub-4m compact Maruti Vitara Brezza SUV to use the tried and tested engines from the family. We believe Maruti will use the 1.2-litre and 1.3-litre petrol and diesel engines respectively in the Vitara Brezza. The company may also debut its all-new 1.5-litre diesel motor in the Vitara Brezza.

 

More details on the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza will emerge on February 3, 2016.
