Maruti Vitara Brezza is predicted to be the next big thing in the Indian automotive space. It is not only expected to completely overpower its segment (sub-compact SUV), but even eat into the sales of compact SUVs and C-segment sedans. ET Auto reported that this megastar will be launched in the Indian market on March 21. This gives its competitors like EcoSport and TUV300 less than a month to come up with something special so as to maintain their stand in the segment. Booking for the car are being accepted by dealerships at a token amount of Rs. 21,000.
If you are planning on buying Brezza, here is a short recap of what the car offers. The SUV is powered by Maruti’s most trusted diesel mill. This is the 1.3-litre DDiS200 engine which develops 88bhp of power and 200Nm of torque. Mileage figures are expected to resemble those of the S Cross, so the car will return a mileage of around 23 kmpl. It comes feature packed with amenities like a touch screen infotainment system, automatic climate control, Apple CarPlay, multi function steering wheel, projector headlamps and many others.
