What we have with us today is a video of the pre-facelift Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza conquering one of the most dangerous roads in the world! The Killar-Kishtwar road (aka The Cliffhanger) is famous for the adventure seekers with some of the most picturesque cliffhangers in India. This treacherous terrain is what links the Himalayan states of Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir. This terrain is dangerous and beautiful in equal proportion. Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is one of the most popular compact SUVs in our market. It has sold lakhs of units over its lifetime. In this video, the owner is ready to put the SUV through its strides to conquer this challenging dirt road. Let us see how well it fares in this drive.
Maruti Vitara Brezza On World’ Most Dangerous Road
It is clear from the video that the terrain is extremely treacherous and there are no signs of even a proper dirt track. As a matter of fact, certain sections of the track have rocks on the road and stone as a part of the road. To add to the danger levels, the track is barely wide enough to fit the Brezza with no chances of even a bike to pass by. The 1-odd km vertical fall without any crash barriers on the sides doesn’t help either.
All in all, you really need to be an adventurer to take up something this risky. Needless to say, significant prior experience of off-roading is required to drive on this route. Off-roading tyres and a solidly built body are also key criteria to ensure that your car doesn’t end up in the service station directly after the trip. You don’t want your car to suffer any serious component damage either. This video proves that Vitara Brezza is quite a capable SUV even if you decide to take it off-roading once in a while.
