Maruti Suzuki India had finally unveiled its most anticipated sub-compact vehicle, the Vitara Brezza. The carmaker unveiled the all-new Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza at the Auto Expo 2016 and has planned to launch the SUV towards the end of this fiscal. The Vitara Brezza is likely to be retailed via Maruti's regular dealerships, especially considering the fact that the sub-compact SUV comes with the company's standard variant nomenclature - LDI, VDI and ZDI, with optional variants. Moreover Maruti will be launching the Vitara Brezza only in diesel variants.
Now, the Vitara Brezza has clearly been one of the most awaited sub-compacts in 2016 and as seen in the spy shots and teaser images, it comes with lot of style and muscle. The SUV comes with boxy features, beefy front fascia flanked with stylish projector headlamps with DRLs. The grille unit sports a large chrome slat designed with hammer-like ends on both sides and has been nicely integrated with the headlamps. The front section also features a muscular bumper that houses the wide air dam, round fog lamps and a sliver skid plate.
