    As had been revealed at Auto Expo 2020, theVitara Brezza shares its 105hp/138Nm, 1.5-litre K15B petrol engine with theCiaz, Ertiga and XL6. Like the aforementioned Marutis, 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic gearbox options are available though unlike those models, it is only the latter that gets Suzuki's SHVS mild-hybrid tech. This somewhat explains why the Vitara Brezza petrol-manual has an ARAI-rated 17.03kpl, while the Brezza petrol-automatic comes with a 18.76kpl mileage.

    A point to note here is that as the the K15B engine in the Vitara Brezza displaces 1,462cc, it does not qualify for small-car excise sops available to models with length under 4m and petrol engines with displacement under 1,200cc. This reflects in the Vitara Brezza petrol’s prices, which are higher than a few of its rivals’. The table below has the specifics:
