Here's a Maruti Vitara Brezza Facelift that was hit by bulls while they were fighting with each other. While the front-end of the car has sustained some damage, the mechanical components stayed safe from damage

Maruti launched the Vitara Brezza facelift in the Indian market earlier this year. With the facelift, Maruti introduced a new petrol power plant on the Vitara Brezza to withstand the BS-6 emission compliance. With the new engine in place, the car misses out on the oil burner that it was earlier offered with. Also, it is the only car from Maruti’s stable that scored a 4-star crash test rating at Global-NCAP. With typical SUV design, the Vitara Brezza looks robust and solid. Recently, we came across a set of pictures of a damaged Vitara Brezza on a social media platform. These pictures further strengthen our belief in the safety aspect that the Vitara Brezza offers.

In the picture above, the Vitara Brezza can be seen with a damaged front end. The reason for this damage, however, isn’t a collision with another car or any object. Instead, it is the aftereffect of a bullfight. The source for this picture claims that two bulls had a fight together and ended up hitting the car. The car has a damaged bonnet, radiator grille, and a broken headlamp. Thankfully, any of the mechanical components beneath the sheetmetal haven't suffered from any sort of damage.

The car was unoccupied while the incident took place. It is the base-spec LXI variant of the Vitara Brezza, which comes with a slew of safety features. It gets dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, front seat belt warning, high-speed alert, seat belts with pre-tensioners and load limiters, and rear parking sensors.

Talking of the powertrain, the Maruti Vitara Brezza facelift is offered with a K15B 1.5L 4-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine. It is designed to put out a peak power output of 104 PS and maximum twisting force of 138 Nm. Maruti offers the Vitara Brezza with 2 gearbox option to choose from – 5-speed MT and 4-speed AT. With the new engine and gearbox options, the Vitara Brezza returns ARAI-rated fuel efficiency of 17.03 kmpl with manual transmission and 18.76 kmpl with an automatic gearbox.
