Following its public debut at the Auto Expo last month, the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza has officially gone on sale amid much fanfare. As the automaker’s first true-blue compact SUV developed here in India, the Vitara holds a lot of promise. Here’s all you need to know about what could truly be a game changer in the compact SUV space.

The Vitara Brezza leaves a good first impression with its high-riding stance, chunky chrome grille and ‘bull horn’ shaped LED lights along with the projector headlamps. The overall length and width are rated at 3995mm and 1790mm respectively while the 1640mm of height is commanding enough for a crossover. What’s unique to this car is the dual colour scheme with floating roof effect. At the back, there are some nice looking bits like the silver accents for the bumper and the taillights.

While the Vitara Brezza is being offered in single tone colours across most trim levels, the ZDI+ trim gets dual-tone paint with red-black, blue-white and yellow-white combinations.

The Vitara Brezza is loaded with goodies including segment-first Apple car play connectivity, fog lights, alloy wheels, climate control, LED lights, a large touchscreen infotainment system and instrumentation with multiple themes. In terms of safety, Maruti is offering a driver’s side airbag as standard across all trims while dual airbags and ABS with EBD are available on higher trims.

The Vitara Brezza is powered by the familiar 1.3-litre Fiat-sourced turbo diesel engine under the hood. In the DDiS 200 trim, this engine develops 89bhp of power at 4,000rpm and 200Nm of torque at 1750rpm. As for the gearbox, there’s a 5-speed unit which sends power to the front wheels. More importantly, Maruti is claiming a class-leading efficiency of 24.3kmpl which is rather impressive in this segment.

The Vitara Brezza weighs in between 1170kg and 1195kg, depending on the trim. That makes it significantly lighter than the competition including the Ford EcoSport and the Mahindra’s TUV300.

With prices ranging between Rs 6.99 lakh and Rs 9.68 lakh depending on the variant, the Vitara Brezza is proving to be of quite valuable especially when we factor in all the goodies on offer and the trusted Maruti after-sales support.
