Toyota Vitara Brezza – IAB Rendering
Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!
Suzuki and Toyota’s new business agreement to share vehicles in India include the Maruti Vitara Brezza, India’s top-selling B-SUV. IAB’s automotive illustrator Shoeb Kalania has created a speculative rendering showing the expected design of the Toyota Vitara Brezza.
Without divulging details, the agreement states that Suzuki will supply the Maruti Vitara Brezza to Toyota. The Toyota Vitara Brezza is a tentative name and Toyota is likely to use a different branding. Like the other shared models, it should feature different body parts like the bumpers, grille, lights and wheels.
The rendering shows the Toyota Vitara Brezza with a distinctive front fascia. It incorporates cues from the fifth-gen Toyota RAV4. The Toyota Vitara Brezza will have no changes under the hood. The Maruti Vitara Brezza is available with only a 1.3L diesel engine coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission. However, should a petrol engine option, possibly the 1.5L unit from the facelifted Maruti Ciaz, arrive at some point, Toyota’s version also would get it. The same goes for an AT/AMT option.
The Toyota-badged Maruti Vitara Brezza will arrive either in Q2 2019 (April-June 2019) or later. In addition to the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Suzuki has agreed to supply the Maruti Baleno to Toyota.
