Speaking on the occasion, R S Kalsi, Senior Executive Director (Marketing and Sales), MSIL:

Quote:
Vitara Brezza has been a game changer for India's SUV market. We have enhanced its allure to meet aspirations of our young customers. They now have the option of Auto Gear Shift, the acclaimed two-pedal technology, for enhanced convenience. AGS has been very well accepted by customers, and sales of AGS variants in the Maruti Suzuki portfolio have tripled in three years. By making this technology available on Vitara Brezza, together with a refreshed design, we expect India's number one SUV to become even more attractive.
Prices:

VDI AGS - 8.54L
ZDI AGS - 9.31L
ZDI+ AGS - 10.27L
ZDI+ AGS Dual Tone - 10.49L

All ex-showroom Delhi.

So the market leader is still feeling insecure from the new kid on the block? Brezza lacks a petrol option currently which will have some minute impact on the sales.
Only if Ford could launch a Diesel AT as well.

I just hope that they haven't skipped cruise control as the steering is missing it in this AGS ZDI+ variant. Maybe I'm wrong but can't say.

Now I'll have to look at retrofitting the isofix mounts on my Brezza. I sorely miss it.

Looks like that. Auto makers obviously show the Top trim and this surely is missing Cruise control.

I always envied Vitara Brezza having Cruise control but not Ertiga/Ciaz and looks like instead of adding on others, Maruti is removing it

This just goes on to show the magnitude of positive response that Tata Nexon has generated. A win win situation for the customers that they now suddenly have 2 diesel AT options to choose from. Having said that I feel the Nexon completely nails the Brezza in terms of pricing, built, features, interior layout and quality and last but not the least, the driving modes.

It now gets all-black interiors, gloss black finish on alloy wheels and a new Autumn Orange exterior paint shade that replaces the Blue colour available earlier.*Maruti has also updated the entire Vitara Brezza line-up with more safety features, and all variants get dual front airbags, reverse parking sensors, ABS and EBD, along with high-speed alert as standard.

Interesting comparison on how the automatic variants of Brezza stacks up against its rivals the EcoSport and the Nexon.

Wow! The Tata Nexon AMT is definitely creating some ripples in the market. I wasn't expecting such a rapid response from MSIL (helped in no small measure by the relative absence of test-mules), but their effort in bringing in the Brezza AGS is highly laudable, nonetheless.

That said, I reckon this is the first time the MJD has been paired to an AMT unit in the 89 BHP guise (kindly correct me if I'm wrong). I wonder if the usual AMT shift characteristics will compound the slightly higher turbo lag that the MJD engine suffers from in this state of tune.

Nope. Already been done in the Zest.

What's this new 'all black interiors with complementing accents'? I couldn't spot any difference from existing one:

Could have been a 'Complete Package' had Cruise Control been included.

I don't understand the manufacturers pinching pennies on useful features. It checks all my requirements except the 'Cruise Control'.

Looks like a complete car is always a dream. Now a days, highways in India have improved a lot and express ways like ORR in Hyderabad & Yamuna Expressway in NCR have become daily commutes for many people. Those are the roads where you need 'Cruise Control' and Maruti ...you missed a chance to create the prefect car. Never the less Brezza sales will be sky rocketing as always.

Hope they launch the petrol variants too. With the K15 debuting on the New Ertiga, that engine can make its way into many Marutis like Ciaz, S Cross, Brezza etc.

Even Maruti guys aren't sure if its Brezza or Breeza.

K15 may not make it to Brezza else it will lose the <4m tax advantage.

Will soon need your help regarding how to retrofit the isofix mounts. I personally feel that MSIL should give an option to do this.

They've actually gone ahead and skipped cruise control in AGS. That's really bad.

Cruise control is included in the AGS models. It says so on the website.
