Moving on to the side profile, both the SUVs come with body-coloured door handles and rearview mirrors, and electrically adjustable rearview mirrors. Additionally, the Fronx Delta+ has electrical foldability for the rearview mirrors, which have to be folded manually in the case of Brezza LXI. The Fronx Delta+ has also been equipped with 15-inch black alloy wheels, whereas the Brezza LXI comes with 16-inch steel wheels. Both SUVs are adorned with tail lamps with LED inserts and reverse parking sensors.
The differences between the variants of both these SUVs are more evident on the inside, with the Brezza LXI appearing much more basic in comparison to the Fronx Delta+. The Fronx Delta+ comes equipped with additional features that are absent in the Brezza LXI, such as a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, automatic climate control, and steering-mounted audio and Bluetooth controls. However, both the SUVs have tilt adjustability for the steering wheel, all-four power windows, dual front airbags, and ABS with EBD.
Major differences under the hood
The major difference between the two SUVs lies beneath their bonnet. The Brezza LXI comes with a 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine that produces 103 PS of maximum power and 136.8 Nm of maximum torque. On the other hand, the Fronx Delta+ has a 1.2-litre four-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol engine capable of delivering 90 PS of maximum power and 113 Nm of maximum torque. Both variants have a 5-speed manual gearbox, but the Fronx Delta+ is also offered with a 5-speed AMT gearbox.
The Fronx Delta+ is also available with a more powerful 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, which produces 100 PS of power and 147 Nm of torque. However, the Fronx Delta+ is significantly more expensive than the Brezza LXI with this engine.
