Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is the most selling SUV of India with the amazing sells of 1.4 lakhs in India only. But from a long time Vitara Brezza did not update it’s design, specification etc.. , at the result strong competitors like Hyundai Venue, Mahindra XUV 500 try to take over the position of most selling compact SUV. It’s also true that SUV segment are mostly preferred by Indians instead of compact SUV because of more space & features & Maruti Suzuki did not have any SUV so Maruti now think to launch Vitara Brezza as an SUV with some modification in design, engine & dimension also.
Kia Motors is the second brand to be entered in India market in 2019 by their phenomenal product like Stinger & Rio. But these two products can’t match the choice of Indian customers so the company may require to rethink the concept of the car & finally by solving their mistake the new revolutionary product from Kia is going to be launched soon into their Indian market called as “Seltoes” which comes under SUV segment ,but SUV market in India is on the boom & competition in between companies is tough after launching MG hector so is new Seltoes may be another powerful competitor of Hector or it may like another cars of Kia?
Design & Dimension of Vitara Brezza 2019 & Kia Seltos:
Vitara Brezza now changed into muscular look with rounded type headlamps along with LED projectors. Typical grill design of Maruti is now changed with some chrome treatment lining & rounded fog lamp at the bottom with LED DRL.Side look is no longer under sub 4 meter, it can extended from 3995 meter to 4200 meter. Pretty cool but even though it’s an SUV but it’s length is still shortest as compared with it’s competitors like Hyundai Creta which is 4.26 meter in length & Kia Seltos which is 4.35 meter in length. Side look is now more dominant with some specially design curves. Back view also feature with some changes like oval shape tail lamps with some cut’s from edges which look’s quit fascinating. But major change is that Tail lamps is now available with LED lightning, Rear glass is now equipped with rain sensing wipers.
Looks are fantastic & matches the concept of future cars by it’s all new 6 LEDs headlamps with tiger nose grill & Heartbeat DRL which enhance the aggression of cars & matches the identity of premium cars.
Side profile consist of double 5 spoke alloy wheels with diamond cut design with door chrome handles & 70 kg high roof rail capacity.
Rear part consists of chrome strip running across tailgate & connect the both LED tail lamps. Seltoes also consisting of plastic body cladding that runs from front to wheel arches & extended from rear bumpers.
Interior of Kia Seltos & Vitara Brezza 2019:
Interior from inside is now feels more royal tough experience which can’t experience before in any of Maruti Car. Seats are now get nappa leather touch , shape wise seats are compact but it feels more roomy. Major changes are seen in 7.5 inches of TFT display which equipped with apple car play & android auto. It’s true Hyundai Venue is now equipped with Blue link technology so that some of the physical function of your car like turn ON ignition can be now controlled from Your android app & their are tones of features which you get in Venue like SOS emergency, so the main point is that all these technologies gives a tough competition to new Vitara Brezza & if these extraordinary features are not equipped in Vitara Brezza than it will be not sustain into the Indian market & probably Maruti may lost the 1 st position of top selling compact SUV. Few major changes are also shown in speedometer like you will see more interesting information like 3-trip meter, fuel economy & gear indication which make Brezza speedometer more advance. Because it’s a 4.2 meter SUV than space in terms of Head room & leg room more than the sub 4 meter Brezza.
Seltoes is expected to get a 10.25 inches of touch screen infotainment system with all the basic features like apple car play & android auto, but the company not officially reveal smart voice command assistance as in MG hector so if smart voice command is not installed in Seltoes than it’s hard to compete MG hector because in terms of design both Hector & Seltoes almost look similar so only features, engine & technology can differentiate these two cars & also judge which is the winner in the SUV segment.
Apart from that Seltoes also consisting personalised ambient lightning,passenger grab handle & electronic parking braking which helps a lot to reduce efforts.
Engine & Power of Vitara Brezza 2019 & Kia Seltos:
Well Maruti don’t have lot’s of options in terms of engine because they have only 1.5 litre powerful engine in every maruti car like Ertiga & Ciaz, so they planned to install 1.5 litre petrol engine & 1.2 litre diesel engine with turbocharger which enhance it’s power so thumbs up for Maruti for that work. 1.5 litre of petrol engine produces 110 BHP of power with 300 Nm of torque & 1.2 litre engine produces 89 BHP of power with 220 Nm of torque. So ultimately in terms of power Brezza is not extraordinary but overall average score of 4.0 star out of 5.
Well officially engine specification was not launches yet but probably 1.5 L OF petrol & diesel engine may expected (1497 cc) produces the power of 90 BHP with 200 Nm of torque. In terms of power it’s less than 2.0 L (1997 cc) engine as in Tata Harrier & MG Hector but yes officially exact cc may not launch so it’s not necessary to compare.
Conclusion of Vitara Brezza & Kia Seltos:
Well if your SUV budget is in under 20 lakhs than definitely go for Hector & if you want more technological features than go for Kia Seltos but If your budget stuck under 15 lakh than two option are available for you Hyundai Creta & new Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza 2019 than you don’t have any option so you will wait for 2 months because Creta & Vitara Brezza , both comes next month with some changes & modifications so wait & than decide which SUV provides you more features, safety & comfort & select it wisely.
Well in terms of design & it’s another specification Kia Seltoes seems to be a powerful competitor against Hyundai Creta, Tata Harrier & MG hector.
