On the Beaufort Scale, a 0 to 12 measurement of wind speed, a breeze which is ranked a gentle 2-6 seems an inappropriate suffix for the Maruti Vitara ‘Brezza’ (breeze in Italian). Given the way the Vitara Brezza is flying out of showrooms, it appears that Maruti’s first sub-four-metre-long, compact SUV is more like a force 10 gale. Within two months of its launch, Maruti has sold over 13,000 units, catapulting it to the top of the SUV sales charts. What’s even more impressive is that the Brezza has achieved this with just one engine and gearbox option – the ubiquitous 1.3 diesel mated to a standard five-speed gearbox. We’ve finally put Maruti’s hot-seller through a thorough road test to see if it warrants all the attention.
