Ford EcoSport Vs Maruti Vitara Brezza Design

Most of the changes on the new EcoSport have been made to the front. There is a new grille that is seen in Ford’s global models as well as the new Endeavour that is on sale in India. The new headlampunits comewith integrated DRLs and the redesigned bumper features larger fog lamps. On the side, it gets larger 17-inch alloys on the Titanium+ variant. Round the back, Ford has not made any change and the mounted spare wheel has also been retained.

Maruti Vitara Brezza with its upright hood, square shaped cladded wheel arches and short overhangs looks muscular yet compact. The high shoulder line and ground clearance give it a bold look. LED units with projector headlamps and LED DRLs collectively with honey-comb air-dam crafted in retro fashion round up the front look. Other prominent bits such as sloping roof line and roof rails further enhance it visually.

Ford EcoSport Vs Maruti Vitara Brezza Interior

There is a stark change in terms of material quality used inside that gives new EcoSport a more upmarket look. The dashboard sports an all-new design, though it still has some rough edges. Ford has added a new leather wrapped steering wheel with mounted buttons and it now comes with SYNC 3 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. While Ford has addressed most of the issues, the subcompact SUV still misses out on rear AC vents. Other prominent bits such as two illuminated USB ports and 25 utility points are also offered inside. As for the comfort, front & rear seats are well spaced and offer good visibility from inside. Though, we feel rear is good only for two adults and a kid.

In line with its exterior, Maruti Vitara Brezza gets a sporty cabin with piano black highlights on the centre console. It comes with five shade mood lighting and there is comfortable space to accommodate 5 people.
