Covering in the all-black theme, the wheeling stands outs with the Suzuki silver-shining symbol. Buttons which represent audio and phone functions are attached to the wheel – it will allow easy access to audio and telephony control. In ZDi+ variant, the steering section might feel a bit confusing as there are many function buttons on it, including phone control, voice commands, cruise control and audio system. Moreover, the wheel features tilt adjustment. The adjustable driver seat adds more taste of comfort for driving.
It is impossible to not notice the chic and modern-looking two-pod unit with bordering lines of 5 different lighting colors – red, blue, white, yellow and orange. Between two pods is the MID which displays information including fuel consumption, temperature, and time.

With a large headroom and legroom, the cabin is spacious in both of the front and back seat rows. The space in the cabin can comfortably accommodate 5 people. For a sub-4 meter car, this is worth-praising. AC is not available for the rear seats.
3. Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Performance
Brezza is equipped with four-cylinder turbo diesel engine. The only 1.3 liter DDiS200 diesel engine delivers the power of 90PS and 200Nm torque. It features 5-speech manual transmission. The mileage is about 24.3 kmpl.
The turbo could fall limp when the engine speed is under 2000rpm. Above that point, the engine runs more comfortably. The sounds of the engine could be a little bit upsetting for the driving experience.
The Brezza comes first in the segment in terms of the fuel efficiency
Clutch is light and easy to control but the gear might require more force than usual. The steering does not feel light but firm and manageable for both city and highway driving. However, it is marked that the steering might not exert a precise control when you command a sharp turn.
Brezza is on the taller side, plus having a heavy diesel engine. As the result, the suspension of the car is firm, which contributes to greater handling. Especially when making a turn at the corner, you can feel how manageable and controllable it is. The performance on the highway is also stable.
4. Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Safety Features
The safety package that Brezza offers includes dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, front seat belts with pre-tensioners and force limiters. But apart from the seatbelt and driver-seat airbags features, other safety applications are not available as standards for the base variant. However, in the near future, Maruti will update ABS and dual front airbags as a standard feature. They also prepare to bring in AMT (automated manual transmission) variants. But sadly, the update of petrol engines is not in their plan.
