What makes Maruti Vitara Brezza hot property at Auto Expo 2016. Will be available in diesel engine only. To compete in the sub 4 meter SUV segment, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza will be offered in six variants – LDi, LDi (O), VDi, VDi (O), ZDi, and ZDi +. It will be powered by a 1.3 liter multijet diesel engine that is also seen on some other Maruti Suzuki cars. This engine is capable of 89 bhp peak power at 4000 ron and 200 Nm peak torque at 1750. It will be mated to a five speed gearbox.
Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza borrows design cues from Maruti Suzuki XA Alpha concept that was showcased at the 2012 Auto Expo. It will sport projector headlamps, LED daytime running lights, vertical slats on chrome radiator grille and a chrome strip at the rear with the name Vitara Brezza written across it.
Interiors feature an all black treatment, as seen in the photo above. Maruti Suzuki describes the interior as bold, impressive and contemporary. Features on the inside includes cockpit styled instrument cluster with mood lights, smartplay infotainment system, sport seats. Safety will be at a premium too, as driver airbag is standard on all variants while ABS and passenger airbag is offered as option on all variants.
Maruti Brezza will compete with Ford EcoSport and Mahindra TUV300. It will be on sale through regular company dealerships and not through NEXA dealers, as was seen in the case of the Maruti S-Cross.
Sales of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza are expected to commence in March this year, soon after the Auto Expo while prices are slated to be in the INR 6-9 lakh range.
