Maruti Vitara Brezza that made its debut at the recently concluded Delhi Auto Expo 2016, is all set to be launched in the third week of March - between 20th - 25th. First subcompact SUV from Maruti Suzuki India, the Vitara Brezza will lock horns with Ford EcoSport, Mahindra TUV300, Tata Nexon and other upcoming sub-4 metre SUVs.

What makes the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza a really special product is the fact that it is the Indo-Japanese carmaker's first vehicle that has been conceptualised, designed and developed entirely by the company's India based research & development team headed by CV Raman, executive director - engineering, Maruti Suzuki India. This made-in-India product will be exported to several markets including Asia, Latin America and Africa.

The Maruti Vitara Brezza will derive its power from a 1.3-litre DDiS 200 diesel engine which is the same that does duty on the Ciaz and the S-Cross as well. Mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, this engine develops 89bhp and 200Nm. To come only in diesel version initially, the car's petrol-engined model is under development now and could be launched later this year.
