New Delhi: Subcompact SUV (SUV) cars have made rapid inroads into the Indian market in recent years. The reason for this is the great car feel and excellent safety that these cars offer at such a low price. However, nearly all of the companies in this segment are now present on the market with the best products. As a result, customers are frequently perplexed as to which vehicle will be used.
So in this report, we have brought the comparison between the two major vehicles of the segment, Tata Nexon and Maruti Suzuki Brezza.

Why the Nexon Proves Twenty One Over the Brezza
Nexon vs Brezza: Engine Options
The biggest reason for this is that after the implementation of the BS-6 standard, Maruti launched only petrol versions of its cars, rather the diesel engines were discontinued. In this case, the 2020 Brezza is available with only one petrol engine option, while with the Nexon you get both petrol and diesel options.
Nexon vs Brezza: Safety
One such area where the Nexon clearly outperforms the Brezza is safety. Because it offers more protection than the standard variant. As a result, the Nexon received 5-stars for adult protection and 4-stars for child protection from the Global NCAP. In the same test, the Vitara Brezza received four stars for adult occupancy and two stars for child occupancy.
Also, due to the aerodynamic design and bigger stance, the Nexon gives a more SUV feel than the straight Brezza.
Nexon vs Brezza: Price
Price is one area where Maruti-Suzuki frequently outperforms its competitors. However, the subcompact SUV segment is an exception. Because the Nexon starts at 6,95,000 and goes up to 10,60,000 for the top variant.
On the other hand, Maruti has set a starting price of Rs 7,34,000 for the base variant of Brezza which goes up to Rs 11,15,000.
However, Maruti-image Suzuki's in terms of after-sales service is stronger than that of any other brand in India. However, Tata Motors, which is infamous in this regard, has also worked very hard to improve its image over the years, which has begun to reap benefits on the sales front.
