Maruti Suzuki has unveiled its highly anticipated Vitara Brezza - the compact SUV, at the ongoing 2016 Indian Auto Expo, being held in Greater Noida. The compact SUV will be on sale soon. Brezza is a brand new car from the bottom up and is the first one to be designed and developed by Suzuki’s Indian counterpart.
Speaking of design, the compact SUV flaunts brand new aesthetics, which includes a beautifully sculpted floating roof that flaunts a sloping roof line. Other aesthetic incorporations include - projectors headlamps with LED light guide, upright hood, angular taillamps, short overhangs, rounded rectangular wheel arches, rising beltline and high ground clearance. This is to say that all in all the SUV manages to exude a rugged, but premium appeal. The S-Cross chrome treatment can also be spotted on Brezza’s grill. Another highlight of the car’s aesthetics is the wraparound greenhouse, which helps Brezzastand out.
As far as its off-roading capabilities are concerned, Brezza comes with a ground clearance of 198mm. It rides on 215/60 cross-section R16 alloys.
The sheer delight continues on the inside as well, as the occupants are treated with Maruti's 7inch SmartPlay infotainment system and Apple’s CarPlay. The steering wheel is quite reminiscent to the one seen in Baleno, Swift and Ciaz, though, it additionally incorporates cruise control, which is also shared with the S-Cross premium crossover.
Powering this beautiful compact SUV is a range of Maruti powerplants, which includes the 1.2-litre and 1.4-litre petrol units and the time-tested, fiat sourced 1.3-litre DDiS, which delivers a reasonable 90PS. This particular selection of engine option comes as a courtesy of conformities implied by the sub-4 meter Compact SUV segment. Brezza will be made available at Nexa dealerships soon and will rival the likes of Mahindra's TUV300 and Ford's EcoSport, with a relatively competitive price tag.
