For starters, the Maruti Suzuki Brezza VXI is available in six colour options – Brave Khaki, Splendid Silver, Sizzling Red, Exuberant Blue, Pearl Arctic White, and Magma Grey. It is worth noting that no dual-tone options are being offered with the VXI variant while the higher trims only get a dual-tone finish with the Brave Khaki colour option. This colour is however not available for those opting for the base, LXi variants. The VXI variant also misses out on alloy wheels, roof rails, and silver skid plates.
With the 2022 Maruti Brezza VXI price starting from Rs 9.46 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the buyers do get supreme value for money as this iteration of the Brezza is available with a long list of features that make it a practical car for everyday usage.
The Brezza is only offered with a single powertrain option – 1.5L K15C Smart Hybrid petrol. This engine boasts a peak power output of 75.8 kW @ 6000 rpm while the maximum torque on the other hand stands at 136.8 Nm @ 4400 rpm. A 5-speed manual gearbox comes as standard with this engine while the buyers can also opt for the new 6-speed torque converter unit for ease of driving. Features like Idle Start-Stop, Brake Energy Regeneration, and Torque Assist During Acceleration are offered as a standard part of the package.
On the design front, the Brezza gets bold styling while the old-boxy layout has been retained. Prominent changes at the front include new headlights, a new chrome grille, and a revised bumper with faux skid plates. While the higher variants get LED headlights, the Brezza VXI is only offered with halogen projector lamps. The rear too gets some major updates with new LED tail lights dominating the whole look. The Brezza branding sits right in the centre and in all, the updates have made the Brezza a much better-looking SUV.
Inside, the new Brezza now gets a new dashboard layout and features many other updates including a flat-bottom steering wheel, digital instrument console, wireless charging, a large sunroof holder, etc. Other important features like height-adjustable driver’s seat, automatic climate control, wireless charging, push-button start, etc are also on offer with the new Brezza.
