The most highly anticipated sub- 4 meter compact SUV offering from India’s largest automaker, the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza has been slated to be launched on March 8. An earlier report speculated that the car was going to be introduced on 21st of March, but now reports claim that this date will mark the commencement of Brezza’s deliveries. It is expected that the car will be launched only in diesel variants and a range of petrol powerplants will be offered at a later stage of the car’s life cycle.
The compact SUV will be offered with Maruti’s time-tested 1.3-litre DDiS200 diesel mill and will feature a power output of 90PS. The grunty mill will also belt out 200Nm of peak torque in Brezza. Capitalising on its compact size and design, Maruti will count on Brezza’s lightweight construction for it to compete against the likes of Ford EcoSport , which now incorporates a 100PS mill, sourced from the Figo Aspire compact sedan.
Brezza will also be competing with the likes of Mahindra’s latest offering in the segment, theTUV300 and to gain an edge over the competition, this compact SUV will be offered with a host of creature comforts which include the likes of multi function steering wheel, touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, automatic climate control and much more.
Aesthetic highlights of Brezza include, the dual-tone contrasting color scheme featured on the floating roof and at the front, the Suzuki logo has been encased in a chrome grille. On the inside, the dashboard features piano finish accents and the cabin interiors have been designed in a manner to maximum space for the occupants. The car is expected to set benchmarks in its segment and will be priced competitively.
