The much-awaited compact SUV 2020 Maruti Suzuki has launched its, Vitara Brezza petrol version at ex-showroom prices range from Rs 7.34 lakh to over Rs 11 lakh, according to The Economic Times.
A month after India’s largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki started exporting S-Presso to global markets, it launched the latest Vitara Brezza, which is expected to perform better compared to its predecessors.
With the new upgrades to the exterior and interiors and a BS6 petrol engine, this latest model will compete with other popular SUVs like Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport, Mahindra XUV300, and Hyundai Venue.
If you intend to splurge on the 2020 Vitara Brezza, there are aspects you should know about it as per the first drive reviews.
Newly Upgraded Designs
There are new upgrades to Vitara Brezza’s interiors and exteriors. The exterior looks sleeker at the front, and the highlight is visible from the side to the rear end.
The transformation of the chrome-laden grille has a slim profile, with revisions of the headlight inserts. The reworked bumper meets pedestrian safety requirements and houses the LED fog lamps.
On the side, the upgraded 16-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, broad C-pillar, and body colored-door handles are the key highlights. The Brezza signature is stamped on the tailgate and LED lamps at the rear.
New features in the cabin include leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, 7-inch SmartPlay studio touchscreen infotainment system, auto-dimming rear mirror, automatic AC, and auto-folding outside rearview mirrors.
Instead of an up and down arrow, the gear shift indicator now displays the gear you should shift. Although the upper glove box and wiper control stalk feel a bit fragile, the overall design quality is appealing.
