At a time when there has been a lot of discussions of making the cars we drive a lot safer, Global NCAP has gone ahead and conducted a crash test on Maruti Suzuki’s most popular model the Vitara Brezza.
The crash was conducted at speeds of 64kmph involving a frontal collision with an object that was meant to stimulate a head on collision with another vehicle. The strong body proved positive in protecting it’s the dummies placed inside with the vehicle thus scoring 4 stars for adult protection and two stars for child protection. Global NCAP has further noted that the SUV is capable of witnessing a harder crash and still securing its score of 4 stars.
Maruti Suzuki offers ABS with EBD, Isofix child seats anchorage along with dual airbags as standard on all variants of the Vitara Brezza all of which worked well in protecting the occupants during the crash test.
The score of 4 stars also puts the Vitara Brezza on par with its ace rival in the market the Tata Nexon, which had also scored 4 stars in the similar crash test conducted by Global NCAP.
Powering the Vitara Brezza is a 1.3 litre DDIS engine producing 89bhp and 200 Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual and AMT gearbox as well. However a petrol motor isn’t on offer at the moment and could be introduced in the future.
