Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza facelift gets airbags and ABS as standard…
Yesterday, we told you that Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza facelift is coming and will launch soon. Now, an iCAT approval sheet has been leaked on the web which clearly shows that Maruti has already got the AMT version of the car certified. The pic of this sheet was shared on TeamBHP. As per the pic, the AMT will be available on the VDi, ZDi and ZDi + variants. This is a great move by Maruti looking at market’s increased tilt towards automatics and will also help to retain its grip on the compact SUV segment. It now remains to be seen will the AMT’s be launched together with the manuals or a little later.
Maruti Suzuki launched Vitara Brezza in India in 2016. It was Maruti’s answer to the very hotly contested compact SUV segment. It has been a phenomenal performer for Maruti and has become a top seller in the segment. With the multitude of rivals upgrading their offerings, the segment is getting more and more competitive than ever. To counter this, it was expected that Maruti will soon be upgrading the Vitara Brezza. Now, as a confirmation, some spy pics of the updated car have surfaced on the web. These were shared in a story published by gaadiwaadi.com.
Maruti appears to have largely focused on cosmetic upgrades and variant rejig in the current facelift, apart from the AMT. The biggest change in the upgraded car is that the dual airbags and ABS are standard on all the variants. What this means is the optional or (O) version on LDi and VDi variants have been done away with. Also, the parking sensors have been made standard across the line.
