The BS-6 Complaint Maruti Vitara Brezza and S-Cross petrol is expected to come with the company’s new 1.5 litre K15B engine which produces power of 103.5 bhp and torque of 138 Nm. Maruti could also upgrade the existing 1.5L DDiS225 diesel engine to BS-6 compliance. This gasoline unit is also expected to be benefited with Suzuki’s SHVS dual-battery mild hybrid system. Transmission choices will include a 5-speed manual and a  4-speed torque converter automatic gearbox as optional.

The Fiat-sourced 1.3 litre diesel engine will be phased out and if demand persists, it is expected to upgrade the existing 1.5 L DDiS225 engine to BS-VI compliance. Maruti Suzuki claims that its BS-6 Compliant petrol vehicles produce around 25% less Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) and are capable of running on BS-4 fuel.

It also benefits from a mild-hybrid setup as ‘Suzuki’s Smart-hybrid system’. The Vitara Brezza is also expected to get a minor exterior and interior update along with the addition of some goodies. Maruti might also offer a sunroof to make the Brezza appeal to a wider audience.
