Worst part is the journalist doesn't even know that the Auto expo hasn't started. Not worth calling him/herself as an auto journalist.

It seems like a pre-written article which got published by mistake. Newspapers have this practice of preparing a template before an expected event so that they can save time, since they only have to update a few details after the actual event. Accidental publishing can result in embarassing situations though. There have been cases of premature obituaries too : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...N.com_incident


As for the pics, I don't really know what to make of them, as they look more like CGI images. Will have to see the actual pics to get a better idea.

Yep these pics seem to be floating all over the web now. Glad I was able to share with enthusiasts here.

Yes it is wishful thinking indeed to anticipate a DDIS 320 mill in Brezza. There are even a few speculations that it might be 75 bhp tune instead of 90bhp. But I believe this would be DDIS 200 with 90 bhp and I don't think R16s would be a overkill...in fact it would be similar to the previous version of Ecosport which had 89 bhp with 204 Nm. Of course it was a bigger 1.5 L engine, but with modern day technology these days manufacturers are able to achieve similar if not better performance with smaller yet powerful engines (example is booster jet, ecoboost, etc). This DDIS200 is a trusted and proven mill which has been powering up even a bigger size vehicle like Ertiga than Brezza. While it may not be a adrenaline booster but it should be potent enough to do the duties on Brezza without a sweat along with great fuel economy which is what general public expect from MS anyway ("kitna deti hai")

Dealers continue to update their websites and adds Vitara Brezza and takes enquirers and details.

- All dealers have been give some key info on the VB given to them by MS, to them as of now.
- They confirm the Diesel at at launch - DDiS200 in the 90 hp configuration.
- Petrol will be offered at a later date ( 1.4 / 1.5 L , not confirmed)
- Possibility of AT in petrol Guise at a later date.
- Booking speculated to start on 4th Feb
- Dealer training in last week of Feb, followed by Media drive
- After the Global unveiling of Vitara Brezza, launch will happen in mid March.

Considering the Global Vitara ( Kerb Weight ~ 1230 kg,) Vitara Brezza could be at ~ 1000 kg and being lighter than S Cross, power ( Power/Weight ratio) seems sufficient on paper.

There is a clear reason why scross 1.3 prices are also reduced - that it cannot stand in India to a well priced brezza 1.3 diesel (read 6.5L for base diesel). Though brezza and scross will be miles apart in terms of comfort, scross may not be able to stand to the 'stylish' brezza. India stand with stylish cars.

Brezza blends the swift's style with an suv design. Not sure how it will look like in real world, but guess it will be miles ahead of scross' uninspiring design. But scross is a car of its own class. Not even creta can beat it.

The 2013-2015 model of Ford Ecosport had 89 bhp with 1289 kg herb weight and if Brezza is 1000kg with 90 bhp it could be better and peppier than ecosport (pre-facelift version).

I was going for the SCross 1.3 Zeta. Now this launch made me wait. I wonder if Brezza will have SCross like build quality. I don't think Brezza Styling will be a thing that would cause me to choose it over SCross. Rear space I believe is best in class. Front is just about okay. I want to know what is it that SCross will end up having better than Brezza.

Comfort, build quality and slightly better space, imo. And you can drive unnoticeably if you like it that way.

Brezza is believed to be in swift platform, while Scross is built in a bigger platform.

This comparison might give you some insight. It is the Vitara though in that and not the sub 4 meter brezza which we will get here.

I expect S cross to be much more spacious and better built. Then of course the engines.

I have driven the S Cross. How much ever I dislike the looks of that car, it still is a great ride.

S Cross and Brezza are different segments altogether.

The comparison is between the European Vitara and S Cross which I believe are almost the same cars with different looking exterior and dashboard.
I think sticking to S Cross will be the best decision. Build quality and ride quality is most important for me. I don't think the swift chassis will be able to keep brezza stable for its height.

No pics of the rear have yet been revealed but hints at a design similar to the Global Vitara.

The design has taken a lot of its inspiration from Swift and the new Vitara. The front and rear profiles subtly resemble with the new Vitara, while the prominent floating roof is reminiscent of Swift.

There seems to be lot of similarities between the new vitara and brezza. There is no doubt about the same.

So, now we have the complete picture of what Brezza is like

I can only hope that our buying public whets their appetite on the likes of the Ciaz SHVS, the Baleno & the S-Cross - and can then be gently persuaded to sample the Brezza AWD!

To me it looks like Elite i20 on stilts which in turn looks like Audi.
I think there is a slight shift after the Fluidic designs to now straight lines which make them look more European .

Its definitely not just the length that makes the S Cross 1.5 lakh (presumably) costlier than the Brezza. I think Brezza will have lower build quality and lesser cabin space. Comparison of features in similar variants may also justify the pricing.
