It’s been a quite sort of month for me as far as travel is concerned. With new car launches and press drives on the rise, most of my travel this month has been in other cars. And as such, the Vitara Brezza has been mostly restricted to my daily commute. However, not to be outdone, I did manage to sneak in a short trip to Haryana over one weekend.
And once again, I got to experience first-hand why people are increasingly going in for SUV’s these days. The practicality of its design – the tall design not only provides increased interior room, but also more luggage capacity – means that you can be seated in comfort as well as carry more luggage. Which, as anyone with kids will testify, is a paramount requirement when travelling. And the high ground clearance gives you peace of mind when tackling bad roads.
Of course, the hallmark of most Maruti Suzuki vehicles is good fuel efficiency, and the Brezza has excelled in that department, consistently providing me figures of around 18km/l in urban conditions, with highway use seeing the number go even further up. However, there has been some communication from the folks at Maruti that they might want the Brezza back soon, and that is something I’m dreading a bit. Over the past few months, the Brezza has provided me with an excellent experience and I would hate to see it go back.
