The latest teaser from Maruti Suzuki reveals the upcoming Brezza compact SUV’s sunroof, bookings officially open
With just 10 days remaining for the launch of the all-new Maruti Suzuki Brezza, the Indo-Japanese maker has officially put up a teaser revealing the compact SUV’s sunroof and LED lights.
While select dealerships have already commenced offline bookings for the SUV, now, you can officially book the car at all Maruti Suzuki Arena dealerships across the country.
The sunroof, as per the teaser, will be available only in select variants, probably, the top-end ones. The unit is also quite basic and not the panoramic sunroof.
From the leaked images earlier, we can confirm that the overall layout of the cabin feels like that of the regular Maruti Suzukis with the usual flat bottom steering wheel and twin-pod instrument cluster.
The biggest change, however, is the addition of the infotainment system on the new free-standing display as per the current trend. For the first time, the Brezza has got rear AC vents too with blower control and a 12 volt power socket.
With the addition of rear AC vents, the compact SUV will get dual-zone climate control. The AC controls are a direct lift from the Baleno. The infotainment system will get wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The car will sport a 360 degree camera, 6 airbags, and TPMS. As the upcoming Brezza is based on the same Global C platform, it’s is expected to achieve a 5-star safety rating this time as the existing model itself got 4 stars with dual airbags.
Brezza is expected to command a crazy waiting period spanning months post launch as it’s the first generation change for the SUV and 1 of the biggest launches from Maruti Suzuki this year.
The compact SUV might regain its lost ground to Tata Nexon and widen the gap further with the Hyundai Venue. It has shed its ‘Vitara’ name and just called ‘Brezza’ as Maruti Suzuki might use the ‘Vitara’ name for its upcoming mid-size SUV.
From the pictures surfaced so far, we can confirm 3 metallic colours – white, red, and green. The green shade is first for the compact SUV which currently has 9 different colour options including dual-tone ones.
The company might install the updated 1.5-litre K15 engine borrowed from the new Ertiga and XL6. In its current form, the mild-hybrid mill puts out 102 HP 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 might command a premium over the existing Vitara Brezza. It will compete against the likes of the Toyota Urban Cruiser, Mahindra XUV300, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Renault Kiger, Nissan Magnite, and Kia Sonet.
