Powertrain and Performance
Vitara Brezza gets the versatile DDiS 200 engine mated with a 5-speed manual transmission. Precisely selected gear ratios ensure excellent driving pleasure with the predictable power and peppiness of a compact SUV.
Maruti Suzuki has used multiple technologies - intelligent battery management, gear shift indicator, low rolling-resistance tyres - that make Vitara Brezza high on fuel efficiency and value for the customer.
Use of pendulum engine mount system, effective use of acoustic insulation and absorption materials around the cabin and engine compartment ensure low NVH levels.
A well-tuned suspension delivers a stable and comfortable ride. The monocoque body design enhances ride handling and stability even at higher speeds.
A petrol variant for the Vitara Brezza is expected in the future.
Safety – More Firsts for Vitara Brezza
Vitara Brezza embodies Suzuki's Total Effective Control Technology (TECT) concept for occupant protection. Hi-tensile steel brings strength along with low body weight.
While driver airbag is a standard on all variants, front passenger airbag and ABS with EBD is offered as an option from base variant onwards.
Dynamic, Confident and Energetic Exteriors
Vitara Brezza designers have worked to create an appealing upright stance to the SUV. Balanced proportions, square wheel arches with large tyres add to the confident look of Vitara Brezza. The body kit, skid plate garnishes and the hood bring in a raised stance to the SUV.
