The Suzuki Vitara Brezza has landed in Mzansi in GL and GLX guise with the choice of manual or automatic transmission. The Vitara Brezza was first introduced in India back in 2016 and has since become the most popular compact crossover in the country having sold over 600 000 units.
The Vitara Brezza has the same wheelbase as the flagship Vitara at 2 500 mm, but it is shorter (by 180 mm), wider (15 mm) and rides higher off the ground (198 mm vs 185 mm). Both the GL and GLX ride on 16-inch wheels. The GL is fitted with steel wheels with silver wheel caps and the GLX is fitted with diamond-cut and polished alloy wheels as standard. The front lights are finished with a chrome brow and LED daytime running lights, which are light guides on the GL and pure LEDs on the GLX to accompany the automatic projector main LED headlamps.
Inside you’ll find a 7-inch touch screen infotainment system, which is standard across the range. The system is fitted as standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, an auxiliary input and a USB port. All models allow the driver hands-free control of the system and the phone interface from the steering wheel buttons or voice command system.
The Vitara Brezza range is powered by the brands K15B engine that also serves in models such as the Jimny, Ertiga and Ciaz. In this model, the engine delivers 77 kW at 6 000 rpm and 138 Nm at 4 400 rpm. Power is delivered to the front wheels via a five-speed manual or new four-speed automatic transmission.
