However, in child occupant protection, the Maruti Brezza scored only two stars since the position of the ISOFIX seat mounts were not correct as per the norms put forward by Global NCAP. The low rating came as the result when the test was done with an 18-month-old dummy but improved with that of a three-year-old.

Another interesting fact is that the main rival to the Vitara Brezza, the Tata Nexon has also got a four-star-rating in Global NCAP. Unlike the Brezza, the Tata Nexon is available in both petrol and diesel formats, along with an AMT option.

Thoughts On The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza

The four-star Global NCAP rating received by the Vitara Brezza is really worth some appreciation. Very few cars in India manage to get a full-star or five-star rating in such crash tests. One such example is the Toyota Yaris which scored a five-star rating in ASEAN NCAP. The Maruti Vitara Brezza is one of the best-selling cars in India and the newly-revealed NCAP safety rating will improve its desirability even further.
