Maruti Suzuki has finally launched their much awaited sub four metre compact SUV Vitara Brezza at real good starting prices of Rs 6.99 lakhs (ex-showroom,Delhi). Set to fight against the likes of Ford EcoSport, Mahindra TUV 300 and the upcoming Tata Nexon, Vitara Brezza appears all set to be the game changer in the segment and has the potential to carve out a big share of the pie for Maruti.

Transferring all the force to the front wheels is a 5 speed manual gearbox. Maruti has even managed to make it lighter than the EcoSport with a kerb weight in the range of 1,170 kg to 1,195 kg. Brezza also comes with the segment-best ARAI-certified fuel efficiency of 24.3 kmpl.

- Projector head lamps with auto on/off

The company claims that the Vitara Brezza is the first car in India to be certified for offset and side impact crash tests which will be enforced from 2017. Built with high tensile steel, Brezza also gets Suzuki’s Total Effective Control Technology for occupant protection. Adding to this Maruti will also be providing driver airbags as standard and dual front airbags with ABS and EBD optional in all variants.
