Maruti Suzuki Brezza seems to be walking the same path to success as the older Vitara Brezza did, having surpassed its rivals to claim the country’s best-selling SUV title. Maruti Suzuki states that it has registered over 1 lakh bookings for the subcompact SUV within two months of its launch which took place on 30th June. The Brezza recorded sales of 15,193 unitsin August, which is 108 units more than its closest rival, Tata Nexon. Speaking of rivals, Hyundai Venue also had a good sales month with 11,240 unit sales.
Brezza climbing to the top spot does not really come as a surprise as the older model, the Vitara Brezza had been consistent with residing at this spot on and off. The new Brezza naturally has the advantage of the popularity built by the Vitara Brezza. Maruti Suzuki reportedly registered 45,000 pre-bookings even before the car was launched. Plus, the subcompact SUV has been improved upon tremendously in this generation.
The new Brezza comes powered by a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated engine that makes 101 bhp at 6,000 rpm and 136.8 Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm. The SUV offers two transmission choices — the 5-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic torque converter. The former comes in four trims — LXI, VXI, ZXI, and ZXI+ — while the automatic comes in three variants, the VXI, ZXI, and ZXI+. Prices start at Rs 7.99 lakh and go all the way up to Rs 13.8 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
2022 Maruti Suzuki Brezza has undergone a thorough overhaul inside and out over the older model. The features list gets some radical changes, including a nine-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The cabin gets automatic climate control, a 360-degree camera system, connected features, and a head-up display. Other neat features include cruise control, an engine start-stop button, and six airbags, among others.
