As auto-enthusiasts in the country wait for the highly anticipated Vitara Brezza from the house of Maruti Suzuki, the country's largest car-maker, more images of the compact SUV have hit the web, indicating that the model has begun to be produced in the country. Maruti Vitara Brezza is expected to make its market entry in March.
Snapped by Team BHP, the latest set of images of the Vitara Brezza gives us a pretty good idea of what to expect from the production version of the car. The compact SUV, which was unveiled at the recently-concluded Auto Expo in Delhi, is seen here in the images donned in five different colours. Caught on camera in its completely revealed avatar, the latest images of the Vitara Brezza are believed to have been taken right inside the company's plant in Manesar, Haryana.
From the images, the Vitara Brezza is seen its monotone colours — white and grey — which are believed to be the base variants of the model, and dual-tone colours red, blue and gold, with contrast roofs. The base variant of the Vitara Brezza seems to have missed out on features like projector headlamps, chrome touch on the front grille, alloy wheels, integrated turn indicators on the ORVMs, LED DRLs and fog lamp.
Expected to be offered in six variants — LDi, LDi (O), VDi, VDi (O), ZDi, and ZDi+ — the Vitara Brezza measures 3,995 mm in length, 1,790 mm in width, 1,640 mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,500 mm. Under the hood, the Vitara Brezza is expected to initially pack only a diesel 200 DDis engine, which can churn out 88.5bhp of power @4,000 rpm and 200Nm of peak torque at 1750 rpm, with a five-speed manual gearbox. Maruti is also apparently considering a petrol variant for the new Vitara Brezza.
The Vitara Brezza will be pinned to rival Renault Duster, Hyundai Creta and the Ford EcoSport in India, and is expected to be priced in the range of Rs 5.5-8.2 lakh. The dealers of Maruti Suzuki have already started accepting bookings for the upcoming Vitara Brezza compact SUV against a down-payment of Rs 10,000-21,000.
