Remember in 2017, the Vitara Brezza was awarded the Indian Car of the Year.
With only a year in the market and being the first Suzuki-branded car that was fully designed in India, there was a lot of anticipation for the upcoming models.
For the record…
The Vitara Brezza is a subcompact crossover SUV manufactured by Suzuki.
After unveiling at the 13th Auto Expo in 2016, it made history as the company’s first subcompact crossover and their fourth attempt in the SUV market after the Gypsy, Grand Vitara and SX4 S-Cross.
Before Toyota started marketing it as the Toyota Urban Cruiser, we did see it back in 2012 as a concept car based on the Maruti XA Alpha.
But in 2020, we received a statement that got folks asking – Is the Suzuki Vitara Brezza getting discontinued?

However, the new 2020 model saw Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza offering a new petrol engine.

With the launch of the 1.5-litre K-Series petrol engine which produces 103bhp and 138Nm of torque, Maruti Suzuki has officially discontinued the diesel models and will only be offering a petrol engine for the Brezza.
