Vitara Brezza is Maruti Suzuki’s first attempt in the sub-4m compact SUV segment. Brezza is a product specific for the Indian market and was conceptualized and developed in India from scratch. It is currently available in India with a diesel engine only with prices starting from Rs 7.20 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Brezza is available in 6 variants and prices go all the way up to Rs 9.66 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Brezza is powered by the Fiat-sourced, 1.3-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine. Since it is a compact SUV, it seats only 5 people. The 1.3-litre, DDiS engine is a tried and tested unit and delivers exceptional fuel efficiency without much compromise on power.
Brezza is not Maruti Suzuki’s first attempt at the SUV segment in India. The company has previously sold the full-size Vitara SUV here, and currently sells Gypsy. Maruti Suzuki recently stepped in the crossover segment as well with the S-Cross.
Like most Maruti Suzuki cars, Brezza is a value-for-money product. The Vitara Brezza made its global premier at the 2016 Auto Expo in Greater Noida and went on sale on 8th March 2016.
Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza competes in the sub-4m compact SUV market which is currently dominated by Ford Ecosport and Mahindra TUV3OO. At a starting price of Rs 7.20 lakh (ex-Delhi), it is more affordable than the EcoSport and the TUV3OO.
