The all new Vitara Brezza gets a thick chrome grille that runs across the large headlamps. Vitara Brezza comes with daytime running LEDs and the side profile of Vitara Brezza is very similar to that of Vitara. The B-pillar is blackened and the shallow glass area gives this car a SUV look.

The Vitara Brezza is based on Swift platform and not on the new Maruti Suzuki platform. This makes it a bit heavier, but then the added advantage is that the price of the spare parts would be lesser on the Vitara Brezza and it would be sold through huge network of Maruti Suzuki dealerships.

Vitara Brezza Engine
Vitara Brezza is powered by 1.3-litre diesel engine which is capable of churning out a 90bhp of power, delivering the torque output in the range of 210Nm. The engine of all new Maruti Vitara Brezza is mated to a five-speed manual transmission gearbox and there is also AMT version available for the diesel engine.
Vitara Brezza’s diesel engine shall come with SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) that uses the start stop hybrid technology. The Vitara Brezza would also be getting a 1.5-litre diesel engine. This engine has a variable geometric turbocharger that helps to improve the power delivery even at pretty low engine speeds.
The SHVS engine offered by Maruti Suzuki is seen on Maruti Ciaz and even the Maruti Ertiga. The power of this engine is good and we are very well familiar with this engine. The turbo boost of this engine is at about 1900rpm and that is when the real thrust comes in. If you want to be in your powenband, drive between 1900rpm to 3400rpm. Then driving in city or even the highway will be easy. The Vitara Brezza is based on the Swift platform and hence it won’t have been difficult for Maruti to test the vibrations of the diesel engine on this platform.
