Recently, after six years, the 2022 Maruti Suzuki Brezza made a foray into the market as a complete makeover. In terms of sales, the Brezza has been one of the bestselling Maruti Suzuki cars. One of the reasons behind its sales figures was its safety rating. The first generation of the Brezza has achieved a four-star safety rating from Global NCAP. So, it should be safe to say that the new Brezza may secure a five-star safety rating in the crash test.
Furthermore, the carmaker has retained the silhouette of the Brezza, but, of course, you’ll see a distinctive design language on the car. However, the new Brezza has already started to gain pace in sales, so below are a few key highlights that you should know about the compact SUV.
Maruti Suzuki Brezza: Features
This time, the new Maruti Suzuki Brezza has a long list of features compared to the outgoing. So, once ingresses from the driver’s door, you’ll notice a fully analogue instrument cluster with a decent-sized MID. The same data shown on the instrument cluster is also available on the heads-up display (HUD). The 2022 Breeze features ambient lighting on the door panels, a compartment on the centre console and footwells. As for entertainment, the compact SUV offers a touchscreen infotainment unit with Android Auto and Apple Carp lay. In addition, for a seamless audio experience, it gets an Arkamys-sourced audio system. While listening to songs, the cabin temperature matters a lot for a better listening experience. So, you can enable the auto-climate-control, and it will do its job.
And if you are playing songs on your phone and want to charge it simultaneously, then the wireless charging tray has your back. Apart from that, the driver can also navigate a few things on the instrument cluster as well as the infotainment system via steering-mounted controls. And if you don’t want to use controls, you can use voice command.

From the safety point of view, the new Brezza now gets six airbags, whereas the old Vitara Brezza had only two airbags, and that too, in the top model. Moreover, it also offers auto-headlights, brake assist, hill-hold control, and child-safety lock, to name a few. Furthermore, the top model of the Brezza is now easier to park since it gets a 360-degree camera with rear parking sensors. In addition, to avoid glare from either of the rear-view mirrors, all mirrors now have an anti-glare function.
The braking in the compact SUV is taken care of by front ventilated disc brakes paired with rear drum brakes.
At the Maruti Suzuki Brezza price, the sub-four-metre SUV has a good number of new-age features.
Maruti Suzuki Brezza: Power Output
In comparison to the outgoing Vitara Brezza, it gets a nearly identical engine but with mild-hybrid technology. Additionally, it gets a slightly detuned engine. The new engine now produces 102bhp at 6000 rpm and 136.8Nm of torque at 4400 rpm. It is also worth mentioning that the new Brezza doesn’t come with a diesel engine. However, the petrol engine is available with two transmission options: a 6-speed manual and an optional torque converter in an automatic. There is also good news for CNG-buyers since there is an official announcement of the 2022 Brezza CNG. But the carmaker hasn’t announced any official launch date for the Brezza CNG so far.
