    Introduction

    Left Front Three Quarter

    The compact SUV segment is undoubtedly one of the major contributors to the overall car sales in India. Speaking of which, the Brezza is one of the popular names in this segment. Back in 2020, Maruti Suzuki discontinued the diesel engine option across its product lineup with the BS6 update. This was also when the Vitara Brezza facelift marked its debut with a 1.5-litre petrol engine. Fast forward to 2022, the Vitara moniker has been dropped and what we have here is the all-new Brezza, which claims to address the buyers’ demand for more features and better safety equipment. The updated model aims to take a big step ahead in terms of technology and features. Here’s our first look at what’s new in the 2022 Brezza.

    What’s changed on the outside?

    Front View

    Prima facie the 2022 Brezza appears to have retained the boxy design from the outgoing model. That said, it does look fresh with a raised hood and silver skid plates that highlight the SUV’s character. The redesigned front grille gets a gunmetal finish with chrome accent and is complemented by new dual LED projector headlights with crystal block DRLs. Furthermore, the redesigned front bumper gets new foglamp housings.

    Left Side View

    The side profile is highlighted by a set of new alloy wheels with a geometric design which is accentuated with squared-off wheel arches and wider cladding. Moreover, the vehicle gets a black roof with a shark fin antenna and silver roof rails. Interestingly, the 2022 Brezza is the first Maruti to come with an electric sunroof.

    Rear View

    The rear section is highlighted by a set of new elongated sleek LED taillights and the ‘Brezza’ lettering across the boot lid. The rear bumper also gets a silver skid plate to complement the overall SUV style.

    What’s changed on the inside?

    Dashboard

    The cabin is highlighted by a dual-tone black and rich brown theme with a silver finish on the instrument panel. The new layered dashboard design and ambient lighting give it a premium feel. Additionally, the vehicle gets a flat bottom tilt and telescopic steering wheel with controls and a wider instrument panel with a colour-coordinated MID.
