The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza has been on sale in the market since 2016. The car did not see any major updates apart from the changes of features on certain variants. The vehicle is now waiting for a major facelift as the design of this vehicle is a bit outdated and the car has not seen any major updates. Also, there are a lot of new entrants in this market which has eaten into the market share of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.
The snapped model gets a cleaner front profile with what looks like LED headlamps that get integrated indicators and DRLs, unlike the outgoing model that features indicators on the bumper and no DRLs. The front chrome grille remains intact with a slight update where as the fog lamp enclosures have become a lot simpler than before.
The side profile remains the same as before save for the new alloy wheel design while the rear might get a couple of updates. If you are expecting to see a sunroof, prepare to be disappointed. In our opinion, this is unlikely to be the range-topping ZXI+ model as fog lamps are missing.
