Maruti Vitara Brezza Exterior Design
Among the highlights of the new Vitara has to be its attractive design. On the outside, the car gets a dual-tone paint job, with the roof getting white or black paint shade as per the body paint option. The front-end features a stylish grille that pays homage to the iV-4 concept and then, there’s a neatly sculpted bumper that adds some more aggression to the car’s nose. In side profile, you’ll be quick to notice this car’s compact dimensions and the overall dynamic stance. The rear-end is neat too and we hardly see any reason for prospective car buyers to not fall for this car’s design.
Maruti Vitara Brezza Interior Design
The interior is a reflection of the smart exterior. There’s a smart-looking dashboard that features glossy black accents to add some excitement to an otherwise conventional design. And while there’s nothing really ground-breaking about the Vitara Brezza’s interior design, it would be safe to state that the cabin looks adequately cheerful and well put together. The Vitara Brezza is a strict five-seater but gets a large boot space. The speedo console gets changeable backlight and a multi-information display. Bits like the steering wheel and gear knob have been borrowed from other Maruti Suzuki models.
Maruti Vitara Brezza Engine & Transmission
Much like the S-Cross, the 2016 Maruti Vitara Brezza misses out on petrol engine options. It comes powered by the same 1.3-litre Diesel motor that powers many other Maruti Suzuki models. This engine puts out a max power of 89 bhp and a peak torque of 200 Nm. The Vitara Brezza boasts a ground clearance of 198 mm. Transmission duties are handled by a 5-speed manual gearbox.
The Vitara Brezza is available with a Diesel engine option ONLY. However, on the cards could be a 1.0-litre Boosterjet turbo petrol motor that also powers the Baleno RS. This new 1.0-litre Boosterjet engine pumps out a max power of 110 bhp and a peak torque of 170 Nm. The Boosterjet engine option won’t come cheap and could cost almost as much as the diesel variants.
