The design of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza was at all times a no nonsense effectively 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 previous and new Brezza is the entrance profile, the alloy wheels and new color choices.
Since a lot of the adjustments are within the entrance, you get a way of newness with the 2020 Vitara Brezza.

And on the highest of that the ergonomics of Maruti Suzuki are prime notch. You really feel like you might be in command which provides a confidence whereas driving.

The greatest change on this new Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza must be the 1.5-litre delicate hybrid BS-VI petrol engine.

The 1.5-litre naturally aspirated engine, as we have now examined within the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz sedan, is a metropolis pleasant unit and is easy and refined for day by day operating. Since its not diesel, we missed that mid torque for overtaking the excessive pace site visitors. Having mentioned that, it’s nonetheless a adequate purpose to purchase the automotive and the largest spotlight must be the refinement. We had been in Goa driving this automotive, and didn’t get a lot time pushing the Brezza to the pace restrict, however often we had been in a position to contact three digits pace and it was not that robust reaching it. To attain these speeds, the SUV doesn’t feels out of breath.

We drove each the handbook and auto gearbox Brezzas and my inclination is in direction of the 5-speed handbook gearbox that’s a gem to function. It’s gentle, simple to shift and responds effectively. 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 realize 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 effectively stability, gentle and agile. The suspension can be tuned effectively for dangerous patches and soaks up a lot of the bumps.

Even although it is roughly priced Rs 50,000 than the rivals (base petrol mannequin), the engine now could be larger 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 be able to place your cash and overlook about it.
