Aravind Jayachandran,

It goes without saying that I’m a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Engine produces 110 PS in Euro-spec Suzuki Baleno.

Autocar India reports that Maruti will be launching a petrol variant of the Maruti Vitara Brezza this Diwali, which will be powered by the new 1.0-liter Boosterjet engine from the Baleno RS.

The 1.2L K-Series petrol is deemed underpowered for the Vitara Brezza.

This week, IAB reported that the 1.2L K-Series engine was a weak possibility as it would feel underpowered in the Vitara Brezza, according to our source. This leaves the bigger 1.4-liter N/A engine and 1.0L Boosterjet engine to power the petrol variant.

Given that a Vitara Brezza with a 1.4-liter engine would remove the tax benefits of a sub-4m SUV, Autocar India believes that Maruti will plant the smaller 1.0-liter Boosterjet engine in the Vitara Brezza.

Although power output figures haven’t been divulged, the 1.0L engine produces 110 PS and 170 Nm in the JDM-spec and Euro-spec Suzuki Baleno that is exported from India. It is paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox.

As of now, the sub-4m SUV is only available with a 1.3-liter DDiS diesel engine, which produces 90 PS and 200 Nm of torque, and is paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Prices start from INR 6.99 Lakhs to 9.68 Lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi).
