Maruti is inducing its Brezza with the CNG bi-fuel option. So, what has changed in the car? Overall the design, interiors and exteriors are largely the same. What has been added is the CNG tank in its 328 litres of boot space. The other minimal changes include the addition of a CNG button on the dashboard and also the CNG telematics on the MID. The addition of CNG would make the Brezza more accessible for buyers who were looking for an economical way out in the sub-compact SUV sector.

The engine of the Brezza CNG is set to remain the same which is a 1.5-litre petrol engine that makes 102bhp and 137Nm of torque. However, the power figures could witness a drop in the CNG mode. It is expected to churn out 88bhp and 121Nm of torque in CNG mode. Moreover, when we talk about the transmission, it could get a 5-speed manual and there are also talks about it getting a 6-speed AT transmission. If Maruti launches CNG in Brezza automatic, it could be the first car to come with such a configuration. 

Launch and Pricing

Maruti launched the Baleno and XL6 CNG last month which were the first-ever CNG cars from Nexa. Then, if we talk about Brezza CNG, this car has started reaching various dealership stockyards. It could only mean that the launch is expected in near future. What about pricing? The CNG variants could be priced around a lakh rupees more expensive than the pure petrol counterpart. Moreover, we can expect CNG variants in the VXi and ZXi model variants.
