The sub-4 metre SUV segment gained immediate popularity in India ever since the Ford EcoSport was launched in India many years ago. Soon, other carmakers followed this idea and today, we have a sub-4 metre SUV by almost every carmaker in India. The most popular ones though are the Hyundai Venue, Maruti Suzuki Brezza, and the Tata Nexon.
Let’s compare the 2022 Hyundai Venue against the upcoming 2022 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza to see how they compare in terms of pricing, design, dimensions, features, specifications, safety, and more.
New Hyundai Venue vs 2022 Maruti Suzuki Brezza pricing
The new Hyundai Venue is priced at Rs 7.53 lakh onwards (ex-showroom Delhi) and the top-of-the-line variant, the Hyundai Venue 1.0 l Turbo GDi Petrol 7-Speed DCT – SX(O) Dual Tone, costs Rs 12.72 lakh (ex-showroom). Petrol trims are priced between Rs 7.53 lakh to Rs 12.72 lakh (ex-showroom), while diesel trims are priced between Rs 9.99 lakh to Rs 12.47 lakh (ex-showroom).
The 2022 Maruti Suzuki Brezza’s prices will be announced on the 30th. The current-generation Brezza is priced between Rs 7.84 lakh and 11.49 lakh. The base variant is slightly pricier than the Venue, however, this margin can increase with the new Brezza, as Maruti Suzuki could command a slight premium over the older model.
2022 Hyundai Venue vs new Maruti Suzuki Brezza – Design and dimension
The new Hyundai Venue has received significant design changes that include revised DRLs, a new front grille, and a bigger air intake, amongst others. The basic front fascia with the DRL setup above the headlight layout remains the same, but with slight tweaks. The side profile largely remains the same, however, the tail lamps have seen an update, with a strip connecting both sides.
The upcoming Maruti Suzuki Brezza has been spied on a few occasions and the design changes are evident that Maruti Suzuki wants to up the game in this area. The new Brezza will get sleeker headlights and tail lamps with redesigned DRLs while retaining its unmistakable overall boxy silhouette.
