Dual colour scheme with floating roof feel is another category first, and imparts a distinct identity to the Vitara Brezza. The front fascia gets unflinching styling with a bold chrome grille.
Vitara Brezza raises the bar with several first-in-class features in the compact SUV category: ‘Bull Horn’ shaped LED light guides with projector headlamps and rear combination lamp, unique cockpit style instrument cluster with mood lights, large and wide tyres and SMARTPLAY infotainment.
The signature ‘Bull Horn’ lights with unique turn indicators in the front bumper lend distinctness. Balanced proportion supported by square wheel arches, short overhangs, high ground clearance and upright hood gives the vehicle a confident stance. The raising belt and rocker lines, and the roofline that slopes down gently towards the rear give the vehicle a dynamic posture.
Vitara Brezza meets offset and side impact crash tests that will come into force in India in 2017. It is the first vehicle in India to be certified by homologation agency, for meeting these future regulations. Driver airbag is standard. Front passenger airbag and ABS with EBD is offered as an option from the base variant. A stronger, hi-tensile steel body not only offers superior ride-handling, but also enhances occupant protection along with Suzuki TECT body structure.
