The 2022 Maruti Brezza gets a major design overhaul, making it look sharper and bolder. It gets a new grille, sleek twin LED projector headlights with twin L-shaped LED DRLs, redesigned bumpers, new alloys, and more premium wrap-around LED taillights. Maruti has given the car a more rugged look, thanks to a chunkier body cladding that also gives a dual-tone look up front and back.
The 2022 Brezza’s interior styling has also been completely revamped. Drawing some inspiration from the facelifted Baleno, the SUV sports a rich and premium-looking cabin. It gets an all-black theme with a plethora of new features, which are as follows:
- Free-standing 9-inch touchscreen with new infotainment system
- Connected car tech with limited remote operation (like AC remote operation but only for AT)
- Arkamys-tuned sound system
- Wireless charging
- Head-up display
- Electric sunroof
Features such as automatic headlamps, cruise control, auto AC, rain-sensing wipers and push button start-stop have been retained. With regard to safety, the new Brezza packs in up to six airbags, ESC, hill hold control (only for AT), and a 360-degree camera. It already gets a 4-star safety rating, making it one of the safest subcompact SUVs on sale.
The 2022 Brezza, with refreshed styling and more features, is now a tougher competitor to the likes of Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Mahindra XUV300, Tata Nexon, Renault Kiger, Nissan Magnite, and its counterpart, the Toyota Urban Cruiser.
