Maruti claims that the Brezza AMT is as economical as its manual counterpart. Is it?
The Maruti Vitara Brezza has been India’s best-selling sub-4m SUV since its launch in 2016. In fact, with average monthly sales of over 10,000 units, the Brezza is among the top 10 selling cars in India. To extend its dominance in the segment further and to take on the Nexon AMT, Maruti recently launched the Brezza with an AMT. Until this, the sub-4m SUV from Maruti was available only with a 5-speed manual transmission.
|CLAIMED FUEL ECONOMY||TESTED FUEL ECONOMY (CITY)||TESTED FUEL ECONOMY (HIGHWAY)|
|Maruti Brezza MT||24.3kmpl||21.7kmpl||25.3kmpl|
|Maruti Brezza AMT||24.3kmpl||17.68kmpl||20.91kmpl|
Although both powertrain options have the same claimed fuel economy (which is a mix of city and highway driving), the real-world results turned out to be a lot different. In our tests, the Brezza MT was more frugal than its AMT counterpart in both city and highway, and that too by a significant margin. In the city- the Brezza MT pips the AMT by 4.02kmpl and the gap extends further on the highway, as can be seen on the table above.
