Launched again in 2016, the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, beneath the duress of the upcoming BS-VI emission norms, has lastly acquired a facelift, which Maruti Suzuki is saying as an All-New mannequin. The new mannequin now will get a BS-VI 1.5-Litre petrol engine for the primary time, up to date appears to be like and a few feature-job. Here’s how good the brand new automobile is in our Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza First Drive Review-
The design of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza was at all times a no nonsense nicely proportionate design that caters a large age group. The up to date 2020 Brezza carries ahead the identical language as earlier than, with out a lot adjustments to the outside. The solely seen change within the design you see between the outdated and new Brezza is the entrance profile, the alloy wheels and new color choices.
Since many of the adjustments are within the entrance, you get a way of newness with the 2020 Vitara Brezza. There’s a brand new grille with an enormous chrome plate with design components properly built-in with LED headlamps with twin projector headlights. The bumper can be new and the brushed scuff plate provides to the mass.

At the edges are the brand new 16-inch black toned precision minimize alloy wheels and the rear will get LED tail-lamps and just like the entrance a bigger scuff plate. Overall the automobile appears to be like engaging and sharper than earlier than. There are additionally a few further youthful color choices and my favouite needs to be the brand new Autumn Orange roof scheme.
Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is all about being easy but efficient and the cabin highlights this simplicity. Both the brand new and outdated Brezzas have a really fundamental but practical format, no including random buttons right here and there. And on the highest of that the ergonomics of Maruti Suzuki are high notch. You really feel like you might be in command which provides a confidence whereas driving. What’s lacking nonetheless, is a sunroof.

While the inside is precisely the identical with a darkish theme and few hints of greys, the dashboard now will get Maruti’s newest SmartPlay Studio touchscreen infotainment system. The new unit has a really consumer pleasant interface with massive fonts, contact response has improved and it additionally will get dwell visitors updates. That being mentioned, there’s nonetheless no eSIM-based connectivity not like the rivals.
In phrases of practicality, there are lot of storage areas all through and the higher glove field will get air cooling. The seats are as snug as earlier than and like I discussed earlier than, the ergonomics of Maruti Suzuki are such that you simply received’t get drained in an extended drive. The area can be beneficiant for 5-full grown adults. The boot is extensive and deep with a low loading top for heavy stuff.

The largest change on this new Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza needs to be the 1.5-litre gentle hybrid BS-VI petrol engine. It produces 103 bhp and 138 NM of torque and will get a 5-speed guide and a 4-speed computerized gearbox as an possibility. Maruti will now not be promoting the famed 1.3-litre DDiS diesel engine anymore, which suggests you must compromise on the mileage. That being mentioned, the petrol engine delivers 17.03 kmpl within the guide and 18.96 kmpl within the computerized model, which aren’t dangerous numbers for a automobile of this measurement.
The 1.5-litre naturally aspirated engine, as we now have examined within the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz sedan, is a metropolis pleasant unit and is clean and refined for each day operating. Since its not diesel, we missed that mid torque for overtaking the excessive velocity visitors. Having mentioned that, it’s nonetheless a adequate motive to purchase the automobile and the largest spotlight needs to be the refinement. We have been in Goa driving this automobile, and didn’t get a lot time pushing the Brezza to the velocity restrict, however often we have been in a position to contact three digits velocity and it was not that powerful reaching it. To attain these speeds, the SUV doesn’t feels out of breath.

We drove each the guide and auto gearbox Brezzas and my inclination is in the direction of the 5-speed guide gearbox that’s a gem to function. It’s mild, straightforward to shift and responds nicely. The 4-speed AT, then again, replaces the AGS gearbox. The gearbox is smoother than the sooner unit, however feels a bit jittery when attempting to attain sure efficiency. The steering is leather-based wrapped and feels chunkier to carry. As at all times, because it’s a Maruti steering, it’s nicely steadiness, mild and agile. The suspension can be tuned nicely for dangerous patches and soaks up many of the bumps.
The new Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza additionally will get the gentle hybrid SHVS know-how with an built-in starter generator, auto begin cease perform and a lithium-ion battery. In phrases of security, the Vitara Brezza is the most secure Maruti Suzuki automobile and retains twin airbags, ABS with EBD amongst different security options.

The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza was, and nonetheless is without doubt one of the most nicely balanced small SUVs you should buy in India. Even although it is roughly priced Rs 50,000 than the rivals (base petrol mannequin), the engine now could be greater and highly effective, the area inside is as beneficiant as earlier than and what you get is a trouble free driving expertise. Basically, shopping for a Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is like investing in a debt mutual fund, on which you’ll place your cash and overlook about it.
