4 Maruti Suzuki Brezza compact SUVs that aspire to be Range Rovers!

The Maruti Suzuki Brezza is the most popular sub 4 metre compact SUV in India, though it is increasingly facing competition from the likes of Kia Sonet and Hyundai Venue.

There are several examples of modified Maruti Vitara Brezza in the country. Here we have four of them that have been modified to look like Range Rovers. Maruti purists dislike these, yes – but that does not stop owners from aspiring to look like the Range Rover models which are at the top of the ladder when it comes to brand image and capability.

The video has been uploaded by PR Play on their youtube channel. The video starts by showing a base model Maruti Vitara Brezza SUV that has been extensively modified as per customer’s request. This is a diesel model and used to come with a 1.3 litre unit with manual and AMT gearbox options. The owner has gone for several modifications on the outside. Starting with the front, it get s Land Rover style front grille which enhances the overall look of the car. The headlights are now smoked and are dual projector units with dual function LED DRLs.

The overall cost of these modifications according to the owner was around Rs 75,000- Rs 80,000.

And here is the second Brezza in our list. As the image indicates, this Maruti Suzuki Brezza gets a Land Rover honeycomb grille – a design that was last seen on the likes of the Freelander2 and Discovery.

And here is the third one. This Vitara Brezza has been fitted with an aftermarket grille from SIPL Automotives. The colour and the grille go well together with each other, and if you only take a single fleeting look, you may think its a Range Rover! This of course does not apply to car enthusiasts who are known to recognise car brands from their exhaust notes – this works only for our regular car guy in India.

While it won’t fool anyone into thinking that this Brezza is a Land Rover SUV. However, the British car’s grille with its horizontal honeycomb pattern slats does look a whole lot classier than the chrome strip with the Suzuki badge in the centre. Anyone who takes a look at the iconic green badge too will know that this is no Land Rover as it reads Brezza instead of the name of the iconic British marque known for its SUVs.

While the grille may have changed, the rest of this red and black dual tone Vitara remains unchanged. Behind the grille sits the 1.3-litre 4-cylinder diesel engine found on other Maruti cars that provides 88.7bhp and 200 Nm of torque, which is sent to the front wheels via either a 5-speed manual or an AMT gearbox.

And here is our fourth Maruti Brezza that has Range Rover aspirations.

Maruti Suzuki launched the new Vitara Brezza earlier this year in the Indian market. Powered by a new 1.5-litre K-Series petrol engine, Maruti Suzuki also changed a few things in the vehicle visually too. The new Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza looks fresh and there are many who have started modifying their vehicles too. Here is one such person who has completely transformed his Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza with a list of aftermarket accessories and it looks much different and much more premium compared to the stock version of the car.

This white coloured Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza gets a slew of changes. At the front, it gets aftermarket headlamps with LED DRLs, which form a complete boundary of the headlamps. Also, the car gets aftermarket fog lamps that have dual modes. You can switch on the fog lamps to throw yellow light or can change the mode to make it throw white light. Yellow light is extremely helpful during low visibility conditions like fog or rain as it does not reflects back as much as the white light and shows the road ahead in a much better way.
