Maruti Vitara Breeza Power
Maruti Vitara Breeza Facelift Petrol generates a power of 103.2bhp and a torque of 138nm which is good but loses out to Nexon, XUV300, and Ecosport. Vitara shades the Hyundai Venue easily in the power section parameter but lacks the power compared to other SUVs in the segment.
Maruti Vitara Breeza Mileage

Vitara Breeza Facelift Petrol has both 4-speed Automatic and 5-speed Manual transmission options which are lacking in Hyundai Venue and Mahindra XUV300 who only offer manual options only. Ecosport and Nexon offer the Automatic/Manual options for the Indian consumers like the Maruti Suzuki.
