Modified Maruti Brezza with a Land Rover grille is elegant

The Maruti Vitara Brezza is the best selling compact SUV in India and while its boxy looks have made it a hit with the crowds, there are still some who think it can be improved upon. Case in point, this Vitara Brezza, which has been fitted with an aftermarket grille from SIPL Automotives, that wouldn’t look out of place on a Land Rover.

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.

The grille may be a minor change compared to what many customizers are prone to do but unlike some rather awful examples of botches, this modified grille looks like it belongs on the nose of the Maruti SUV. The fact that the grille sits flush with the Breza’s front end shows that the SIPL Automotives has paid a lot of attention and taken the time to make this modified grille fit and look just right.

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.

However, if you prefer the Brezza’s grille to stay the way it is, Maruti themselves offer a host of customization options that come directly from the factory onto your SUV through its iCreate program, which allows customers to make their Vitara Brezza look unique. It was the Brezza that kick-started Maruti’s foray into customizing cars directly from the factory and the success with the Brezza has seen India’s largest automaker extend the program to other cars in its lineup including the new Swift.
