Why Vitara Brezza?
Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is a sub-compact urban SUV which has been conceptualised, designed and developed in India using a Suzuki global platform and engine. It was developed using Suzuki’s core technology and global product development process. For the first time in this segment, a car is available in three themes – Glamour, Urban and Sporty. Maruti has managed to find a middle way and make Brezza look sporty and SUVish. The upward stance, 198mm ground clearance and a flat front gives the car a strong SUV look, whereas the two-tone floating roof which slopes down gently towards the rear makes the car feel sporty. The car also features ‘Bull Horn’ shaped LED DRLs underlining the projector headlamps. Initially, Vitara Brezza will only be available in diesel variant. Brezza will feature 88bhp of power and 200Nm of torque. The engine will be mated to a 5-speed manual transmission and will return an overall fuel economy of around 23 kmpl.
Vitara Brezza stands strong in the safety department. Not only does it features a driver airbag as standard, but also provides optional passenger airbag and ABS with EBD right from the base variant. The body is also made from hi-tensile steel which incorporates Suzuki TECT body structure. The vehicle comes with a wheelbase of 2500mm, engine capacity 1248cc with a boot space of 328 litres. The vehicle comes with a ground clearance of 198mm, a turning radius of 5.2m with cruise control and auto headlamps and rain sensing auto wipers. The vehicle will be budgeted in price tag of Rs 7 to 10 Lakhs.
