The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza sub-compact SUV has won over the hearts of the Indian car buyers, while the market experts have been also all praises about it. This mini SUV model from the country’s top selling car maker, Maruti Suzuki has been a massive success ever since it launched in India in March this year. The Vitara Brezza continues to rule the sales chart of the Indian UV segment, while accolades are still being showered on it. Now, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza has won the coveted Indian Car Of The Year award for 2017.
The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is a fully India-made vehicle model with global standards. It has been designed and developed by Maruti Suzuki’s Indian team lead by the company’s top official C.V Raman. Maruti has certainly hit the bull’s-eye with the Brezza in the highly popular compact SUV segment, which is the company’s first compact SUV model. The Vitara Brezza has been clocking over 9000-10,000 units per month and has garnered over 1.72 lakhs bookings.
Maruti Suzuki has also worked hard and effectively broke away from its long established brand image of offering low-cost, fuel efficient and bare basic mini cars. Now, the Indo-Japanese car major has an expanding lineup of premium car models. Although the Brezza is not a part of Maruti’s premium model lineup, it has impressed with its premium quality interiors, features as well as very eye catching styling language, which have together ensured its high flying market success.
At the latest Indian Car Of The Year (ICOTY) event, the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza was chosen the winner among 19 new car models, out of which only 6 made to the final jury round. These top 6 vehicles competing for the top honor were the recently launched all new Hyundai Elantra, the newly launched new Hyundai Tucson, new generation Toyota Innova Crysta, Ford Endeavour, Skoda Superb and the Maruti Vitara Brezza. While the Vitara Brezza received the award, the Hyundai Tucson got the second position and the third place went to Toyota Innova Crysta. In 2015, Vitara Brezza’s closest rival, the Hyundai Creta won the title of the Indian Car Of The Year but tables have turned now.
The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, despite being a sub-4-meter compact SUV is the preferred choice of the Indian buyers over many larger and more powerful SUV models. The mini SUV offers a great bold visual appeal with its highly stylized face, black under-body cladding, large air dam, floating roof design, large bumpers, attractive tail lights and 16 inch wheels. Presently, the Vitara Brezza is an all-diesel model powered by a 1.3 liter DDiS mill that offers 89 Bhp of peak power and 200 Nm of top torque and is paired with a 5 speed manual transmission. The small SUV delivers a class best fuel efficiency of 24.3kmpl. Maruti Suzuki is expected to introduce an AMT model of the Vitara Brezza along with its petrol version soon in 2017.
