Delhi Auto Expo 2016 kicked
off in grand style with the premiere of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, the
compact urban SUV from the market leader. The interior of the car is bold,
impressive and contemporary: a dashboard that bears a futuristic layout,
resolute garnishing, a progressive meter cluster, sporty seats and smart and
versatile flip folded rear seats.
Vitara Brezza has been
conceptualised, designed and developed in India using a Suzuki global platform
and engine. C. V. Raman, Executive Director R&D, Maruti Suzuki Indian
Limited (MSIL) is the Chief Engineer leading the Vitara Brezza project. The
development of Vitara Brezza was done using Suzuki's core technology and global
product development process. The development cost was Rs 860 crore. The localization
level is 98pc in the vehicle.
Vitara Brezza is high on
personalization. For the first time in the segment, customers can enjoy custom
car experience straight from the showroom. On offer are theme based options-
Glamour, Urban, Sporty - that match the personality of the customer, a feature
never seen before in an SUV in India.
Dual colour scheme with
floating roof feel is another category first, and imparts a distinct identity
to the Vitara Brezza. In terms of technology and features, Vitara Brezza raises
the bar with several first-in-class features in the compact SUV category: ‘Bull
Horn’ shaped LED light guides with projector headlamps and rear combination
lamp, unique cockpit style instrument cluster with mood lights, large and wide
tyres and SMARTPLAY infotainment.
Vitara Brezza was unveiled to
the world when Toshihiro Suzuki, President & COO of Suzuki Motor
Corporation, Japan and Kenichi Ayukawa, Managing Director & CEO of Maruti
Suzuki India, took the covers off a dual colour – blazing red with midnight
black – vehicle.
Toshihiro Suzuki said, “In
“Suzuki Next 100”, our mid-term management plan, India is positioned as the
most important strategic market and production base. I am proud to introduce
the brand new Vitara Brezza. It is developed under a unique process to design,
with a special focus on the taste and values of Indian customers. You are going
to love it.”
Kenichi Ayukawa said,
“Vitara Brezza is true to its category of a compact urban SUV. It is muscular,
bold and sporty, with a distinct presence. It offers style and glamour, and
features and customisation never seen before in SUVs in India.”
He added: “Built on a global
Suzuki platform, Vitara Brezza has been conceptualsed, designed and developed
in India using Suzuki’s global development processes. We believe this model
appeals to Indian customers in its design, packaging and features. Vitara
Brezza is Maruti Suzuki’s symbol of Create in India.”
Vitara Brezza, a perfect mix
of SUV grace and urban presence, is on display at the center of the Maruti
Suzuki pavilion. The front fascia gets unflinching styling with a bold chrome
The signature ‘Bull Horn’
lights with unique turn indicators in the front bumper lend distinctness.
Balanced proportion supported by square wheel arches, short overhangs, high
ground clearance and upright hood gives the vehicle a confident stance. The
raising belt and rocker lines, and the roofline that slopes down gently towards
the rear give the vehicle a dynamic posture
Vitara Brezza is powered by
the acclaimed 200 DDiS engine mated with a five-speed manual transmission.
Precisely selected gear ratios ensure excellent driving pleasure and use of
multiple technologies ensures this stylish SUV stands tall on the promise of
fuel efficiency. Use of pendulum engine mount system, effective use of acoustic
insulation and absorption materials around the cabin and engine compartment
ensure low NVH levels in Vitara Brezza. While customers in this segment prefer
the powerful peppy ride offered by the diesel trim, the Company is also working
on a petrol trim which will be offered in the future
Vitara Brezza meets offset and
side impact crash tests that will come into force in India in 2017. It is the
first vehicle in India to be certified by homologation agency, for meeting
these future regulations. Driver airbag is standard. Front passenger airbag and
ABS with EBD is offered as an option from the base variant. A stronger,
hi-tensile steel body not only offers superior ride-handling, but also enhances
occupant protection along with Suzuki TECT body structure.
