Maruti Suzuki has just revealed the sketch and has also confirmed the name of the much awaited “compact SUV” named as “Vitara Brezza”. “Brezza” is an Italian word for “fresh breeze”. This sketch by MarutiSuzuki points to a stylish, compact SUV that is confident and energetic, designed to especially appeal the urban SUV customer. The world premier of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza will take place at Delhi Auto Expo in early February.
On the exterior, the designer has captured the essence of an SUV profile and infused it with the dynamism of urban vehicles. Several elements in the exterior design impart a distinct character to the Brezza. In the words of the Maruti’s designer, “Balanced proportion supported by square wheel arches, short overhangs, high ground clearance and upright hood gives the vehicle a confident stance. The raising belt and rocker lines, and the roofline that slopes down gently towards the rear give the vehicle a dynamic posture.”
Drawing our attention to the nuances, the designer says: “The body surfaces are natural and sculpted tastefully to create the right interplay of highlight and shadow. Instantly recognizable floating roof over the wraparound greenhouse adds to the visual drama, and makes the Brezza standout in the crowd.”
The new Vitara Brezza is expected to be powered with a 1.2-litre K-Series petrol engine, while the diesel unit will be the Fiat-derived MultiJet 1.3-liter unit. Both engines will be mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard.
