Maruti Suzuki has unveiled its most awaited compact SUV Vitara Brezza at the ongoing 2016 Indian Auto Expo. The SUV offers 98% of localisation which means it will be very aggressively priced upon its launch.
On the exterior front, Vitara Brezza offers projectors headlamps with LED light guide, upright hood, angular taillamps, short overhangs, rounded rectangular wheel arches, rising beltline and high ground clearance of 198mm. It rides on 215/60 cross-section R16 alloys.
Inside the cabin, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza SUV comes equipped with cockpit style instrument cluster with mood lights and a SMARTPLAY infotainment system. All trims will come equipped with driver airbag as standard. The front passenger airbag along with ABS and EBD will be offered as an option from the base variant.
The Vitara Brezza is powered by Maruti’s tried and trusted 89bhp 1.3-litre diesel engine. There is no petrol engine as of yet. There are talks of an AMT-equipped version, but that is expected to join the line-up later. The SHVS mild-hybrid system also won’t be offered on the model.
The Vitara Brezza will be available in six variants – LDi, LDi (O), VDi, VDi (O), ZDi and ZDi+. The base LDi gets power steering, folding rear seat, driver airbag, audio system with Bluetooth, power mirrors, front power windows, manual AC, tilt steering and an engine immobilizer. The Vitara Brezza LDi (O) gets dual front airbag, ABS, EBD and front seat belt pre-tensioner with force limiter.
