Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Exterior
Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza comes with a striking look. The design of this sub 4 meter compact SUV is so clever that when you first lay your eyes on it you will find it hard to believe how the design of the car make it look bigger than its actual size. Its front is angled such in a way it look more wider and aggressive than it is.
Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza gets a detailed and very well designed chrome grille that integrates two headlamps along with. The top variant gets a projector headlamps and daytime running lights setup.
The fronts bumper comes with a large blacked out air dam which is beautifully crafted with silver skid plate, it helps it to achieve a sporty look. The indicators and fog lam are separate unit and comes with their own matte black encircle.

The wheels seems not appropriate or in order words they are flat plain in front of car like Brezza. If it would have Ciaz like 16 inch gunmetal grey wheels then it surely look more premium and sporties, right?
When we check out the roof then we’ve found out that it has some elements that are taken from Maruti Suzuki Swift. It comes with floating roof design and what make is more special is you can actually choose from factory finished two tone paints. This option is only restricted to ZDi+ variants moreover you have choose the combinations either from blue/white, red/black or yellow/white. You can choose any of combination but if you ask us then we recommend you to go with blue/white combo.
Now lets coming to its rear than it has tail lamps that are horizontally stacked and not to miss its large embossed Vitara Brezza badge atop the number plate.
The rear bumper is well contrasted as it gets silver finished skid plate with matte black cladding around it. To give sportier look it has a spoiler.
Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Interior
Despite experimenting too much Maruti Suzuki’s engineer play a safe game. They came up with elegant and simple solution but the good thing is it worked much more than expectations.
Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza gets a matte black tone and its central console has glass black finish. To brake the traditional single color monotony company added horizontal brushed aluminum styling.
The lower part of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza gets an auto functional climate control system and some free space for extra things. It has speedometer that has two large dials, this features a mood lightning that comes in five color choice blue, red, white, orange and yellow.
If you have an Apple device then you would just love to fall with its interior features as its central screen is boasted with Apple CarPlay. If you don’t have any Apple then don’t feel sad as still there are ample of things for you like reverse parking camera with parking sensors, automatic rain sensing windscreen wipers, automatic headlamps, cruise control and more. The top variants also has additional features like start stop button, auto folding outside rear view mirrors. In short it is a car which is equipped with lots of gadgets.
Lots of good things to admire but as said nothing is perfect so lets talk about some of its downside.
Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza has not quality plastic as it gives a mediocre tactile feel. The plastic that have on top dashboard also comes with low quality. Apart from it the central panel feels empty because of large panel gaps. You will not find such thing in other cars.
When it comes to space Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza scores high number. The front seats are very comfortable in all manner. Apart from it its rear are spacious enough with ample of legroom there is a good under thigh support too. Despite the stylish sloping roofline it boast with enough headroom. One thing that may disappoint you is that it doesn’t have leather seats even in top variants.
Previous versions were criticized for less storage space. This time company works on it and adds bottle holder on front doors along with two cup holders in the central console. For rear passengers there is bottle holder too. Its center console let your store utilities like keys, charger, wallet etc. Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza comes with 328 liter boot space that sound bit low in comparison to competitor’s boot space but thanks to the company that they have added large spare wheel and low loading floor in the car.
Engines, Gearbox, and Performance
Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is powered by 1.3 liter turbocharged 4 cylinder that generates 200 Nm of torque and 90 PS of peak power. Brezza got the same engine as Ciaz. If you have ever ride Baleno and Swift and you will feel sense of familiarity when you drive Brezza. Power delivery is much improved. You will feel noticeable turbo lag when you drive at lower speeds and have high gears.
The gearbox is as crisp and slick as it always was but it doesn’t reach at the level of Swift. The clutch feels quite light and easy to use.
If you want a smooth and noise free drive then make sure to keep the car below 3000 rpm as beyond this you can easily hear the engine, tyre, wind noise. The diesel variant will not disappoint you but it is also not the best that you are looking for.
Ride, Handling, & Brake
When you check the size of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza size in the segment then you feel suspicious about its braking system but company proves us wrong with its well suspension setup. When there is only two people in the car it comes with lots of skipping and bouncing especially over bumpy, undulated or bad roads.
This will suddenly disappear when you have all seats occupied and even boot is filled with luggage. The plus point here is for rear passengers as they don’t feel any bouncy ride like any other SUV in the market.
Now coming to its handling then it is quite similar to Duster in many ways. Company always make neutral handling cars and despite being developed under global c-platform it get the same.
In terms of brakes Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza gets disc brakes at front and drum brakes at the rear. All variants no matter which one gets ABS. As above told it comes with good braking system and has a really good stopping distance. It further improved with 215/60 R16 tyres.
