In the future, Maruti Suzuki hopes to provide a wider variety of SUVs. The Indo-Japanese automaker plans to release a wide variety of new SUVs, such as the next-generation Brezza, a Baleno-based crossover, a Jimny, and a mid-size SUV. A new report claims that the ‘Vitara’ prefix would be removed from the 2022 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza. New name for the car is Maruti Suzuki Brezza. The Suzuki Vitara SUV, which is available in other markets, may soon be available in India, the report adds.
If this occurs, the next-generation Vitara SUV will be offered to customers. In this segment, it will compete with the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Volkswagen Taigun, MG Astor, and Skoda Kushaq. It’s expected that the 2019 Suzuki Vitara will feature major updates to both the inside and exterior, in addition to the revised underpinnings. The SUV will have a more prominent waistline, aggressively sculpted headlamps, creases at the shoulder blades, and a rakish rear window.
The new version will be larger in all dimensions compared to its predecessor. The former is 4177 millimetres long, 1775 millimetres wide, and 1610 millimetres high. The new model will share the same wheelbase as the outgoing version. The 2019 Suzuki Vitara’s interior will have a high-definition touchscreen infotainment system, wireless charging, a fully digital instrument cluster with configurable layouts, mood lighting, 4G LTE WiFi, and an automated parking brake.
The new Suzuki Vitara SUV will be powered by a 1.4-litre K14D Boosterjet gas engine mated to Suzuki’s SHVS mild hybrid drivetrain. The latter features an electric motor producing 13.6PS and a 48V battery pack with 8Ah of capacity. Idle stop, torque boost, and torque fill management are just a few of the engine assistance features that will be made possible by the battery pack.
Keep in mind that the Vitara has not yet been officially introduced in India. Maruti Suzuki’s future intentions will become clearer over the next few months. Follow autohexa.com for updates.
