With monthly sales peaking at 7,000 units, it’s difficult to stand apart in your new Maruti Vitara Brezza, even with the contrast coloured roof option ticked. Someone from Kerela decided to spruce things up further on his sub-compact SUV, and ended up making the first documented, modified Maruti Vitara Brezza of the country.
Up front, the standard, chrome drenched grille has been done away with, and in its place goes a simpler job with a piano black surround. Land Rover-style Vitara branding on top of the grille is just another look-at-me embellishment. The insides of the headlamps have been blacked out, while a blue corona rings now round off the projectors. Down below, the faux skid plate is now body coloured.
Moving on to the sides, the wheel arches now get some additional cladding but its what fills them up that matters the most here. Gone is the stock footwear, while replacing them are fatter, after-market tires wrapped around Vossen multi-spoke wheels, probably knock-offs. The rear end sees some piano black polish over the standard, chrome appliqué, and the final images also show the removal of badges from the vehicle, hence adopting a cleaner look.
Mechanical updates to the turbocharged, 1.3-liter, Fiat sourced diesel engine on this aesthetically modified Vitara Brezza seem to be nil. The DDiS 200 engine, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission produces 89 hp at 4000 rpm and 200 Nm of torque at 1750 rpm, apart from delivering a class-leading 24.3 km/l (ARAI certified). Prices for the Maruti Vitara Brezza start at INR 6.99 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
