Brezza looks extremely stylish. Hope they disappoint by offering 75 ps diesel version. It will sure set the sales chart on fire. Expect long waiting periods.

Well Maruti seems to have taken that "Audi Image Gate" personally.
And they hit back with a superb teaser !! As the speculations go, if its priced below the S cross, there is no doubt Maruti is going to add another volume churner in their kitty.

I feel that even S cross will feel the heat as I am sure this is going to be a very good ride and handling package plus being feature loaded.

It's clear again from the video that no hood scoop is present. Has a very thick roof.

I was wondering how could maruti keep this car away from clear spy pics even now, just before the launch.

Still not clear why maruti tried to develop this car from scratch when the international vitara is just 4170mm in length, and they could easily chop off 170mm from it to make it under 4m. And it looks similar too, even though all the body panels are different, and sits on the swift platform instead of the scross platform. There should be a significant cost advantage. Another reason for me to guess that the base diesel model will come at 6.5L.

Looks clean and very attractive. Waiting for the full preview now.

And sometimes we follow a car for too long that we forget how the initial spy shots were. The window lines, the face, the alloys, the shape of headlights, C pillar etc can all be seen in this ACI scoop.

I am glad MSIL didn't resort to the usual 4 meter chopping business and is giving market two proper SUVs. And its not easy to chop 17cm from a car without extensive rework which cost money and time. And that's to ignore the fact that how unpleasant or repulsive the end product often looks. Often a case of neither here, nor there.

And since the Brezza was made from ground up, expect to see major weight gains over the bigger Vitara. Given the engine choices, that's much needed.

Autocar India seems to have info on this car. The Compact SUV was shown doing a test run (in campus?) camouflaged a few weeks back in the Autocar show.

They also speculate it will come in a range of petrol and diesel engines, though some reports are that it will come only in diesel and some speculate with a new 1.5L petrol engine.
The 1.3MJD in the VGT configuration ( 90 Hp) seem to be nearly confirmed by most reviews and Maruti Suzuki personnel ( RM, SA's)

Quote:
The SUV will be powered by Marutiís existing range of petrol and diesel engines. This could include the 1.2- and 1.4-litre petrol engines and the tried-and-tested Fiat-derived 1.3-litre diesel. There are talks of an AMT-equipped version as well, which will join the line-up in future. The Vitara Brezza will not be sold via Marutiís Nexa dealerships.
Specs (Speculated)

The one shown in mycarhelpline.com is Vitara not Vitara Brezza. Looks like the pictures are somewhere from the Middle East. But the description is for Brezza.

Apart from targeting EcoSport. It will surely take away sales from I20, Baleno and Swift as well.

This Car looks lovely. I hope this does not use the light weight external body shell like the Baleno. The 1.2 Petrol, 1.4Petrol as well as 1.3 DDIS from Fiat are all tested engines and there are no surprises there. Even if the body feels as thick as their Ertiga that would be fine as an urban baby SUV. I think this would also be a blockbuster product and will eat into competition as well as Baleno and Swift. Even if we assume Creta will not be affected, we will surely see some discounts coming in on Creta, Duster, Ecosport and other SUVS of similar size.

I am keen to know how much does this baby weigh. Hope somebody can get that information from some insider source . Hoping its not a sub 1 tonne.

Lightbulb Re: The Maruti Vitara Brezza Compact SUV

Folks,

Kind of realized, in all likelihood, Maruti Suzuki has a winner on hands. The odds on this one not going trumps look bleak!
  • Engine Specs (how about more bhp / torque?:D),
  • Body Specs,
  • Ride and Handling Specs,
  • Feature Specs etc.
are all likely going to be on par with what Maruti Suzuki offers in the Swift and the Baleno.

  • sub-4-meter body,
  • proven engines within the excise benefits limit,
  • parts sharing with the cousins,
  • lower R&D Costs (presumption - as this is indigenous)
will result in competitive pricing.

My calculated estimates peg this one to be in the range of 5.29 - 7.99 lakh rupees Ex-SRP Bengalooru

Someone will have to convince me hard as to why the Brezza will NOT peak at 8,000+ copies per month, 3 months from launch.

My personal feeling is that Brezza is going to hit some of the major players really hard. This will also go into months of waiting. I hope it handles well.

What matters most for me is post sale service which is better amongst all in Maruti. Eagerly waiting for this one, hopefully they launch it in that particular Blue shade with white roof!


Dear mods, do not delay the review of this like that of Baleno.

I can! Cz as of today, the Brezza isn't launched yet!!!

I'm no Maruti fan and dislike almost all of their offerings. But I'm looking forward to the Brezza. The proportions seem to be adequate, design and styling seems to be european minus the chrome overdose (typical Maruti territory) from whatever pictures posted here and after seeing the Baleno and the S Cross, will probably come loaded with features. I also feel it'll ride well, which generally all Marutis do. At least better than the Hyundais for sure. I feel, its my kind of a car. A car I'd actually love to buy.

The only fly in the ointment might be the pricing. Now, we can be assured that Maruti will not make the same mistake twice but there is a possibility they could. So, lets hold our breaths for some time before we predict 8000+ units, shall we!?

This vehicle looks very much like a mini Evoque, at least from the side profile. That's a good thing

Vitara Brezza with the Projector lights and DRL's in action! Unlike Baleno the DRL seem to be muted in illumination

With due respect Sir, I believe its too early to predict the nature of illumination. Baleno's DRL in company provided pictures looks too civilised, but we all know how loud and harsh it is.
