2022 Brezza to all-new 7-seater SUV

2021 has been a quiet year for Maruti Suzuki. However, it won’t be like that anymore. In 2021 they have already launched Celerio CNG, Dzire CNG, new Baleno and will also launch many more vehicles. A segment where the manufacturer lacks perspective is that of SUVs. However, that will change now. Maruti Suzuki is working on 6 new SUVs for the Indian market. Here you will find more information about each of them.

Brezza 2022

The first SUV that Maruti Suzuki will launch is the new generation of the Brezza. It will be based only on the current platform but will be heavily redesigned. There will be no changes to the powertrain. It will therefore be a naturally aspirated 1.5-liter petrol engine which should now benefit from the improved mild hybrid technology. The automaker should also finally replace the aging 4-speed torque converter automatic transmission with a 6-speed torque converter. The Brezza will no longer bear the nickname “Vitara”. It will be launched mid-2022.

The YFG is the biggest launch for Maruti Suzuki. It is a new mid-size SUV that has been co-developed with Toyota. It is expected to be based on Toyota’s DNGA platform and will also be assembled at Toyota’s manufacturing plant. It will also come with Toyota’s hybrid system. However, the engine is not yet confirmed. The new SUV is expected to be called Vitara and will be launched during the holiday season this year.

Maruti Suzuki YTB

The automaker is also working on a new compact SUV. It is codenamed YTB and will share many parts with the Baleno. So, expect it to be based on the Heartect platform and the engine will also be the same as the Baleno. The design is expected to be a coupe-SUV, just like the Futuro-E concept we saw at Auto Expo 2020. The YTB will be positioned lower than the Brezza and will be launched next year.

Jimny 5 doors

Maruti Suzuki is working on a 5-door version of the Jimny. They are not launching the 3-door Jimny in India as it is inconvenient and will not be able to get tax benefit. There will be no major changes to the exterior of the SUV. The engine should also remain the same. There would be 4×4 and a low-end gearbox on offer.

Maruti Suzuki YY8

Until now, it seemed that Maruti Suzuki had no interest in electric vehicles. However, that’s not true, the automaker is working on a new mid-size electric SUV. It is co-developed with Toyota. They use a new electric skateboard platform called 27 PL. Initially the batteries will come from BYD and eventually TDSG will supply the batteries. Two battery sizes will be offered and the range will be around 400 to 500 km. Maruti YY8 is expected to be launched in 2025.

Maruti Y17

It will face MG Hector Plus, Hyundai Alcazar, Tata Safari and Mahindra XUV700. The new SUV is expected to launch in 2024 or 2025.
