- Will be powered by a 1.5 liter petrol engine
- To be the first compact SUV to be offered with CNG option
Maruti Suzuki has the largest CNG portfolio in the country and now, it looks like the automaker is ready to expand the portfolio with a new addition. This time it looks like Brezza CNG has been seen in the merchant's warehouse.
The Maruti Suzuki Brezza CNG will likely use the same 1.5-liter petrol engine that also powers the Maruti Suzuki XL6 and Maruti Suzuki Ertiga. It is expected to produce 87 horsepower and 121.5 Nm of torque, and will be linked to a five-speed manual gearbox.
Last week, Maruti Suzuki also launched CNG iterations of the Baleno and XL6 models, priced at Rs 8.28 lakh and Rs 12.24 lakh, respectively. One is powered by a 1.2 liter petrol engine while the other is powered by a 1.5 liter petrol engine. Both models are paired with a five-speed manual gearbox.
Brezza CNG is expected to be launched in the coming weeks and we expect it to be priced at Rs 60,000-70,000 more than comparable gasolines. It will also be the first compact SUV to be offered with an alternative to CNG.
