The 2020 Toyota Vitara Brezza you ask? We know that Suzuki and Toyota have struck a deal to share certain models in India. Suzuki will be giving Toyota the compact SUV, Vitara Brezza and the sub-four-meter hatchback, the Baleno. In return, Toyota will give Suzuki the Corolla sedan.

It will most likely be sold through the Nexa group of showrooms.
