Maruti Vitara Brezza has received overwhelming response ever since its launch in the country. The vehicle has garnered over 50,000 bookings so far, and now is the top-selling model in the sub-compact SUV segment. Maruti Suzuki sold 5,563 units and 7,832 units of its first sub-compact SUV in the month of March and April respectively. While the Ford EcoSport’s sales figures stand at 4,456 units and 3,789 units for the same months. With its new found popularity, the Vitara Brezza currently commands a waiting period of 6 months.
Priced between Rs 6.99 lakh - Rs 9.68 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Vitara Brezza is being offered in a total of 3 trim levels - LDi, VDi and ZDi - and 6 variants. The compact SUV, currently, is available with a 1.3-litre DDiS 200 engine that also does duty in the S-Cross. This power mill pushes out a maximum power of 89bhp and a peak torque of 200Nm. Mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, the Vitara Brezza delivers the class-leading mileage of 24.3kmpl. At a later stage, the company might launch a petrol version of the Brezza, powered by a new 1.5-litre engine.
Coming to the design, the Maruti Viatara Brezza shares some of its design bits with two Suzuki concepts - XA Alpha and Suzuki iV-4. Though, it looks more aggressive and sportier than the concepts. The car features projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights, a radiator grille with vertical slats, blackened A & B pillars, plastic cladding around the body, wing mirrors with integrated turn indicators and chrome horizontal strip at the rear end. With features such as a high ground clearance, high shoulder line, square wheel arches and bold roof rails, it looks more like a proper SUV.
