The spotted car gets a dual-tone red and black shade

2023 Maruti Suzuki Brezza spotted for the first time on open roads, launch likely in June

After the 2023 Maruti Suzuki Brezza got leaked undisguised in white shade last year, the compact SUV has now been spotted testing on an open road for the first time by Aditya Gupta. The country’s third best selling SUV might hit the showrooms by June this year.

While the upcoming car is the next generation model of the existing Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, it has reportedly shed its ‘Vitara’ name and now just called ‘Brezza’. This time, Maruti Suzuki has changed every bit of the compact SUV.

The car not only looks wider and proportionate like a proper SUV but also has interesting design elements. At the front, there are chunky chrome strips sporting new design with the Suzuki logo at the centre.

The front almost looks devoid of a grille

Even the piano black bumper has chunky strips and a grille could hardly be seen. The twin-pod LED headlamps and drls are latest addition and look striking.

The matte black rugged body cladding has been carried forward from the existing car which further accentuates the SUV stance. The car gets a dual-tone finish with piano black dominating the top half. The roof-rails are finished in contrast white though.

At the rear, the tail lamps look sleek and refreshing. There are new cuts and creases which provide a busy look at the rear. The word ‘Brezza’ is written in bold to make people forget the ‘Vitara’ name altogether. The number plate is fixed on the tail gate.

The cabin is expected to be completely overhauled too. Maruti Suzuki is likely to provide a new floating touchscreen infotainment, a new instrument cluster, sunroof, paddle shifters, connected car technology, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, 6 airbags, TPMS, and a 360-degree camera.

The company might provide the updated 1.5-litre K15 engine borrowed from the new Ertiga and XL6. In its current form, the mild-hybrid engine puts out 103 PS and 137 Nm. There would be an option to choose either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.

The upcoming Brezza would command a premium over the existing Vitara Brezza. It would compete against the likes of the Toyota Urban Cruiser, Mahindra XUV300, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Renault Kiger, Nissan Magnite, and Kia Sonet.
