EXCLUSIVE: 2020 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Petrol Manual Could Feature Mild Hybrid Tech

Currently, the mild hybrid system is limited to the automatic variants of the Vitara Brezza


  • The Vitara Brezza petrol manual hybrid utilises the 1.5-litre engine and a 2.4PS electric motor.
  • It could be offered in four variants: LXI, VXI, ZXI and ZXI+.
  • The current Vitara Brezza petrol manual is priced from Rs 7.34 lakh.

Maruti Suzuki’s recently launched Vitara Brezza petrol is offered with a 12V mild hybrid system which features start-stop technology and torque boost function. This particular technology has been limited to the automatic variants only. Now, a document from a government website reveals that Maruti Suzuki could offer this system in the petrol-manual variants of the Vitara Brezza


The document reveals that the hybrid petrol-manual variant of the Brezza utilises Maruti’s tried and tested 105PS 1.5-litre K15B petrol motor paired to an 2.4PS electric motor which aids in start-stop function and torque boost assist. This technology is used for improving fuel efficiency as it eases the load on the petrol motor. Currently, the Vitara Brezza petrol MT has a claimed efficiency of 17.03kmpl.

The recently launched facelifted Vitara Brezza is the first major update for Maruti’s sub 4-metre SUV. It gets a cosmetic update which freshens up its exteriors. However, the interior remains largely similar to the earlier model. Have a closer look at it in our detailed image gallery. It has also traded in its 1.3-litre diesel engine for a BS6-compliant 1.5-litre petrol motor.  


Currently, the Vitara Brezza manual is priced from Rs 7.34 lakh to Rs 9.98 lakh (ex-showroom). Expect prices to shoot up considerably if Maruti launches the petrol manual hybrid variants. The Brezza locks horns with the Hyundai Venue, Ford EcoSport, Tata Nexon and Mahindra XUV300.
