After clocking cumulative sales figures of over 7.5 lakh units, Maruti Suzuki has launched the second generation Brezza at a starting price of Rs. Maruti Suzuki has also dropped ‘Vitara’ from its name, and the car is now called Maruti Suzuki Brezza.
The company is expected to launch a new, larger SUV under the Nexa range, which is meant to compete with Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos, and may call that SUV Vitara in the future. Maruti Suzuki also says that the all-new Brezza has already crossed 45,000 bookings within eight days of the opening, with an average of around four bookings every minute.
The focus of the new Maruti Suzuki Brezza has been on being a feature-loaded SUV.
A 1.5-litre petrol engine will power the Maruti Suzuki K15C. This is the same power unit seen on the new Ertiga and XL6. Buyers can choose a powertrain with a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission.
The new Brezza is more technologically advanced than the old model. The compact SUV will feature a nine-inch touchscreen infotainment system with an ARKAMYS sound system recently seen on the new Baleno. The top models of the Brezza will also feature a futuristic heads-up display that will host important driving information like speed and RPM level. Maruti Suzuki has also included an electric sunroof in the new Brezza offered by its rivals.
Maruti Suzuki will offer the Brezza in four variants – LXi, VXi, ZXi and ZXi+. The top-spec trim will also get six airbags and a 360-degree camera, making the Brezza a desirable proposition for many buyers.
