The Breezy Cheetah: Vitara Brezza ZDI
In a market where crossovers and SUVs have started wooing the youth and the adults alike, Brezza is a star task-master. The list of features runs long and hasn't given me even half a reason to complain yet. It turns heads as it moves with its Range Rover Evoque type styling. The quality of the paint job sets a new level for the Maruti's stable. The alloys are neat and bring boldness to the square arches that give this big boy a smart feel. All angles of the car make it super admirable and are definitely more impressive than the Creta from the back and the side. The Creta does feel like a lion from the front but Brezza is like that breeze like Cheetah, true to its name. The floating roof pillars make the Brezza extremely pleasing to the eyes from the sides. Going into the technical features, the 1249cc is quite practical keeping efficiency and city needs in mind.While frequent gear shifts might be required but one doesn't complain in the long run as it's fair to your wallet. For someone like me I would have loved the 6th Gear as it would complement my driving style, but nevertheless, 5 gears do the job quite well.
Stepping into the Cabin, the piano black interiors are soothing. Each time I see a rival car with soiled beige interiors, it feels good to have the all black interiors in the Brezza. The dash is sober and simple and doesn't disappoint. From cruise control to steering mounted phone controls, the Brezza is top notch. Though the steering is borrowed from other Maruti's it still feels good while navigating the Brezza in the city and the highways. I personally love the horns in the Creta though Brezza's dual horns do a decent job. The movable armrest for the driver adds to the comfort of driving and doubles up as a storage box. The Brezza has more and enough cup holders all around in the cabin which increases the practicality immensely. The efficiency of the rain-sensing wipers is a pleasant surprise The odometer has 5 lighting options which definitely increase the cabin's elegance and keeps me away from being bored. Height adjustable seats and steering wheel though do deserve a mention as they are essential positives.
My ZDI+ has a 7-inch infotainment system which is complete touch and provides great accessibility to the baby Brezza. The rear parking camera display on this big screen makes reversing the car definitely easier. The Climate Control AC is top notch and Maruti deserves a pat for this.
Moving to the rear of the car, the legroom and headroom are sufficient making the ride comfortable for the tallest of my friends. The rear handrest is an added comfort for the rear seat passengers. The boot space works good for me and is close to 330 litres.
As I sum up, Brezza delights on all areas and has no room for complaints. While an i20 elite would cost close to 8.8L, the ZDI+ Brezza comes in at close to 11L. While I already own one, I am planning a second one for the family. If you love the feel of a matured SUV and still seek the efficient service from a Maruti, Brezza is the car to own.
