Maruti is all set to enter the compact SUV segment space with Vitara Brezza. With this car, the Indo-Japanese carmaker looks ready to dislodge the current market dominators like Ford EcoSport and Hyundai Creta. As per a source in ETAuto, Maruti might only bring diesel Brezza to India. The petrol variant will be available only for export, at least initially. Maruti has created a fuss among automobile enthusiasts, by releasing teasers for Vitara Brezza. The car is expected to feature projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights, which will be offered for the first time in this segment. The car will compete more closely with TUV300 and EcoSport. Both these cars have got enormous sales in the Indian market and it seems that the competition is going to be more cut throat with the launch of Brezza.
Brezza will be powered by the same 1.3-litre diesel mill employed in Maruti’s hatchback Swift. This engine can generate a maximum power of 74 bhp in Swift with a peak torque of 190 Nm. Petrol variants, which are expected to be available only for export, will run on a 1.5-litre engine. The automaker is ambitious about its future ideas and plans to manufacture 10,000 units per month. It will showcase the vehicle in the upcoming automobile event, the 2016 Auto Expo. The car’s price is likely to fall in the Rs. 6-9 lac bracket.
