Maruti Fronx vs Brezza: Performance comparison

One of the biggest difference between the two SUVs lies under their hoods. Maruti has brought back their famous Boosterjet engine in Fronx. It offers the SUV with two choices of powertrain. The 1.0-litre turbo petrol unit can generate 100 hp of power and 147.6 Nm of peak torque. It comes mated to a five-speed manual or six-speed torque converter gearbox. There is also a 1.2-litre petrol engine that can churn out 90 hp of power and 113 Nm of peak torque. Besides the regular manual transmission, the second engine also comes mated to an AMT gearbox. In comparison, Brezza is offered with the new K-Series 1.5-litr enaturally aspirated petrol engine. But, despite being a more powerful engine than the Boosterjet unit, it generates only 103 hp of power and 137 Nm of peak torque. The transmission job is handled by either a five-speed manual or a six-speed torque converter.
