Maruti Suzuki first showcased the facelift of the Vitara Brezza at the Auto Expo 2020. The company has now finally launched the car in the country and we’ve waited for a petrol variant to come to the country ever since the car was first launched in India. To jog your memory, the Vitara Brezza was only available with a diesel engine option and though the company had provided a whole bunch of customization options and also introduced an AMT to keep things up to date in that segment. Now, however, with the launch of the petrol variant, the Vitara Brezza comes with a host of feature options and of course a mild-hybrid system as well. There’s a lot more on offer now.
