Power for the Maruti Vitara Brezza will come from a 1.3-litre DDiS 200 diesel engine that churns out 89bhp and 200Nm. The same engine also does duty on the Maruti S-Cross and Ciaz in the same state of tune. Transmitting power to the front-wheels of the car will be a 5-speed manual gearbox. The company plans to launch the vehicle's petrol model as well, but at a later stage. The Vitara Brezza petrol will feature an all-new engine which will be the same that will power the global model of the sub-compact SUV.

The Maruti Vitara Brezza looks quite sporty with features such as projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights, outside rear-view mirrors with integrated turn indicators, blackened A & B pillars, radiator grille with vertical slats, plastic cladding around the body, etc. Features such as 198mm of ground clearance, square wheel arches with 16-inch alloys and high shoulder line give it an SUVish look.
