Maruti Suzuki has finally revealed its long-awaited Maruti Vitara Brezza at the ongoing Auto Expo 2016. This is the first fully in-house product developed by Maruti.
The Maruti Brezza is defined by the automaker as a “stylish urban compact SUV”. The exterior gets a bold and sporty look starting with the front fascia having a single chrome bar connecting the two headlight units. The headlamp assembly features projector units with LED DRLs and black surrounds. The lower portion is mainly taken up by the large radiator grille flanked by round fog lamps and sleek turn indicators.
The side profile consists of lower black plastic body cladding, square wheel arches, 16-inch alloys and side mirrors with turn indicators. The Brezza will be available in a total of nine body colours with contrasting roof. The rear view is seen with a tail gate spoiler and faux skid plate. To me, it looks acutely familiar to the posterior of the S-Cross. In terms of size, the Vitara Brezza measures 3,995 mm, 1,790 mm, 1,640 mm and 2,500 mm in length, width, height and wheelbase respectively.
Comfort and safety features in the Brezza are cruise control, reverse parking camera and driver’s seat airbag. It has also been reported that systems such as ABS, EBD and dual front airbags will be standard on top-spec Z variants, while a SmartPlay touchscreen system will come stock with the premium ZDi+ trim.
The Vitara Brezza will be moved by the familiar 1.3-litre four cylinder “DDiS 200” diesel mill. This engine will churn out 90 hp and 200 Nm of peak torque at 1,750 rpm with transmission duties being performed by 5-speed manual gearbox.
The Brezza has a localisation level of 98% and once launched, it will take the likes of the Ford EcoSport and Mahindra TUV300 head on.
