Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Preview

Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is currently available with a 1.3 litre diesel oil burner and soon it will get a new petrol engine expected to launch in April 2017. The new petrol Brezza will share the1.0-litre Boosterjet engine with upcoming Baleno RS and Ignis crossover. This engine will also be used in the new Swift scheduled to come next year. Designed and developed completely in India, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is the first sub-compact SUV from the Indo-Japanese carmaker for the domestic market. Built on Suzuki’s global C platform, Vitara Brezza dons a contemporary design philosophy, some of the other key styling elements like the contrast coloured floating roof and three pillars, squared wheel arches and aggressive headlamp assembly in front lend it SUV-ish character. Unlike other Maruti’s in the non-premium range, Vitara Brezza has pleasant interior offering generous space to occupants. Available only in diesel guise, the engine line-up consists of Fiat’s tried and tested 1.3 litre Multijet diesel engine tuned to deliver 89bhp and paired to a five-speed manual unit. Features aboard include a mix of goodies like Apple CarPlay, reverse camera, cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, push start button, auto head lamps, airbags for driver and co-passenger and ABS are offered on top-spec variant.

Launched at an introductory price of Rs 6.99 lakh, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is MSI’s first offering in the compact SUV space, slotted below S-Cross in the line-up. Maruti Suzuki India’s reign in Indian market is unmatchable and it looks firmly at acquiring zenith in segments untouched so far. Built from grounds-up, the only thing that seems a tad familiar is the prefix Vitara that has been taken from the phased out model ‘Vitara’. The styling cues too have been borrowed from the model sold in international markets. Considering the high level of localisation (around 98%) and its positioning beneath S-Cross, Maruti Vitara Brezza price in India is quite competitive. Currently available with a choice of diesel engine, the sub-compact SUV lacks petrol engine in its line-up. Feature list is rich with some of the segment first comfort goodies and prominent safety equipment adding up to the credibility of the vehicle. Transmission options too have been restricted to a five-speed manual tranny, whereas an AMT will purportedly be added later.

4. Hyundai grand i10 7.35 Lakh

Hyundai Grand i10 Review


Introduced in late 2013, the Hyundai Grand i10 is one of the top selling B-segment hatchbacks in the country. This is mainly because of the model’s well-built interior, generous equipment and efficient engines. The new 2017 Hyundai Grand i10 is now here and it is the mid-life update which makes sure the car is contemporary and offers the best feature list in its segment.

The Grand i10 facelift competes with other mid-size hatchbacks including the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Ford Figo, Honda Brio and the Tata Bolt.



On the outside, the Grand i10 facelift gets a fresh look with the restyled front and rear bumpers. The front grille has been completely redone and looks aggressive. The headlamps have been tweaked slightly and it now gets LED DRLs, though only on the higher trims. You also get thick rub strips on the side doors and the rear bumper gets a thick black applique giving it a cool look. It gets a new diamond cut alloy design as well.


The interior is done in beige and black and looks premium. While the top-spec trims gets a 7-inch touchscreen replete with Apple Car play and Android Auto, the mid-trim Sportz gets a 5 inch screen. The Asta trim gets climate control. The dash has been tweaked but the instrument console remains the same. The grand i10 is decently spacious and gets AC vents for the rear passengers as well. It also gets adjustable headrests in the back on the fully loaded Asta variant. Tinted glasses are standard along with front power windows, power steering and manual air conditioning.

In terms of safety, it gets engine immobiliser, central locking and parking sensors. Driver airbag is standard while the higher variants get dual front airbags. ABS is restricted to the top-spec Asta trim only.

Engine and Transmission

The Grand i10 gets the 1.2-litre Kappa engine that develops 81bhp of power and 114Nm and comes from the i20. The engine is mated to a five-speed manual and a four-speed automatic gearbox and drives the front wheels. The 1.2-litre three-cylinder diesel engine continues under the hood with the 74bhp of power and 190Nm of torque. It also comes mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. The petrol engine feels powerful and peppy while the diesel engine needs to be revved to get the juice, but is excellent for city driving especially with the smooth torque curve.

Maruti Suzuki S-Cross 2017 9 Rs. 8.49 Lakh

Maruti Suzuki S-Cross 2017 Review

Maruti Suzuki had introduced their first crossover SUV, the S-Cross, in India back in 2014. The first Maruti to be launched with the first 1.6-litre Multijet engine, the S-Cross managed to hang on to its wings in a segment that prefers macho styling. With its mid-life update in 2017, the S-Cross has gained some visual brawn but lost its bite – the 1.6-litre diesel.

The S-Cross still carries forward the crossover looks, but the meek front grille has been replaced by an aggressive vertically slatted one. The headlamps also have become aggressive with the blacked out bodies and LED DRLs. The front bumpers have been tweaked to match the aggression. The profile retains the same crossover hatchback look and the tail design has also been carried forward almost identically.

The interior continues to be black and spacious. The S-Cross doesn’t seem that big from the outside, but inside, it is quite roomy. Three people can sit comfortably in the back even with two six-footers seated up front. And then comes the ample boot space of the S-Cross. The premium crossover gets automatic climate control, 8-inch touchscreen display, steering mounted audio control and power windows. It gets dual front airbags as standard along with ABS and EBD.

The 2017 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross is offered only with the 90bhp 1.3-litre Multijet diesel engine that develops 89bhp of power. The larger 118bhp 1.6-litre diesel that gave the S-Cross its character has been given a miss due to lack of demand. Instead, Maruti Suzuki has been developing a 1.5-litre diesel based on the Multijet platform and it might debut with the S-Cross in 2018.

he Maruti Suzuki S-Cross, with its smaller engine, now seems to be more of a competitor to the Vitara Brezza, Ford Ecosport, Honda WR-V and Tata Nexon rather than the Hyundai Creta and Renault Duster.
