Team-BHP's Maruti Vitara Brezza Review is live!

Click here to read the definitive review of the Maruti Vitara Brezza.

What you’ll like:

  • A well-rounded Compact SUV with mature styling & mass-market appeal
  • Competent 1.5L petrol offers excellent driveability & practicality
  • Smooth torque-converter AT replaces the jerky old AMT. Gets SHVS tech
  • Well-mannered suspension riding on big 215/60 R16 tyres. Good ground clearance as well
  • Decent cabin space for a sub-4 meter car. Lots of storage & a powerful air-con too
  • Features such as auto LED headlamps, auto wipers, cruise control, 7" touchscreen ICE etc.
  • Dual airbags & ABS are standard. The pre-facelift version received a 4-star GNCAP safety rating
  • Maruti’s excellent after-sales service, wide dealer network & fuss-free ownership experiences

What you won’t:

  • No diesel option! Maruti’s BS6 1.5L diesel engine is still some time away
  • This 1.5L petrol motor is uninvolving to drive. Enthusiasts, look elsewhere
  • 4-speed Automatic gearbox feels old & outdated. No manual mode or paddle shifters either
  • With the new 1.5L petrol, the car has lost its relative VFM positioning in the segment
  • AT option commands a steep Rs. 1.4 lakh ex-showroom premium!
  • Ordinary interior quality and design. The game has moved on with newer competitors
  • Missing features by 2020 standards (6 airbags, sunroof, leather seats etc.)
  • Boot has a practical layout, but is still the 2nd smallest in the segment @ 328 liters
