The Suzuki Vitara Brezza

The Suzuki Vitara Brezza, a dynamic and well-specified SUV, lands in South Africa in GL and GLX specification and with the choice of manual or automatic transmission. It is available immediately at Thorp Suzuki.

The Vitara Brezza was first introduced in India in 2016, with an upgraded model that arrived in 2020. It has since become the most popular compact SUV in that country, accounting for 23% of its segment share and 11% of all SUV sales, across all categories. To date, Suzuki has sold over 600 000 Vitara Brezza models.

    At Suzuki, it’s not just about our cars. It’s about lifestyle. It’s about excitement. It’s about value. It’s about your way of life.


    In the Vitara Brezza, active safety systems include ABS brakes with emergency brake-force distribution and brake-assistance, airbags for the driver and front passenger, pre-tensioners and force limiters on all seatbelts and ISOFIX-mountings for child seats.

    Passive safety, in turn, is taken care of by the award-winning Total Effective Control Technology (TECT) structure. This body structure was designed by Suzuki to be both incredibly strong and light and it has won industry acclaim for the effective dispersing of crash energy away from the occupants. The Vitara Brezza’s TECT-structure also includes side-impact beams in the doors for added protection.

    All models also have a high-mounted LED stop lamp, a rear window-demister and a rear wiper with an integrated washer as standard.

    Lastly, vehicle security is cared for with the fitment of an alarm system and immobiliser on all models.


    A big part of the global success of the Suzuki Vitara Brezza is its design and dimensions, which make it a nimble urban runabout with the ground clearance, ride height and interior space of a true SUV.

    The Vitara Brezza has the same wheelbase as the flagship Vitara at 2 500 mm, but it is shorter (by 180 mm), wider (15 mm) and rides higher off the ground (198 mm vs 185 mm) than its sibling.

    Both the GL and GLX ride on 16” wheels, but in the case of the more luxurious GLX, the wheel width grows from 205 mm to 215 mm. The GL is fitted with steel wheels with silver wheel caps and the GLX is fitted with diamond-cut and polished alloy wheels as standard.

    Suzuki’s SUV design team has packaged the Vitara Brezza’s dimensions perfectly. From the front, they have designed a striking look by creating a near-solid chrome grille that stretches from end-to-end between the front lights and visually underlines the vehicle’s wide stance


    The first item to catch your eye when you get behind the Vitara Brezza’s steering wheel is the large 7” touch screen infotainment system, which is standard across the range and which forms the centrepiece of the dashboard.

    The system is fitted as standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and it will display the image from the reverse camera, when engaged. Bluetooth, an auxiliary input and a USB port are also standard, while all models allow the driver hands-free control of the system and the phone interface from the steering wheel buttons or voice command system.

    The infotainment system on the Vitara Brezza is the newest generation from the engineers at Suzuki. As such, it also displays vehicle information and alerts, including low fuel, door ajar alert and much more.


    The Vitara Brezza range will be fitted with Suzuki’s proven and highly popular K15B engine that also serves in models such as the Jimny, Ertiga and Ciaz. This engine has multi-point fuel injection and four valves per cylinder for greater efficiency and smooth power delivery across the engine range.

    In this model, the K15B-engine is engineered to deliver a solid 77 kW at 6 000 rpm and 138 Nm of torque at 4 400 rpm. Power is delivered to the front wheels via a five-speed manual or new four-speed automatic transmission.

    With the Vitara Brezza’s automatic transmission, fourth gear is considered an overdrive gear and can be disabled with a gear-mounted switch. This is particularly useful when driving on hilly and winding roads, or on steep declines and will ensure fewer changes and a smoother gear transition.
