Design

The Maruti Vitara Brezza has got an SUV silhouette that Indian buyers like while Maruti Suzuki could have been a bit more adventurous in styling with it. They have done very well to add some glamour to the car by putting simple lines with the contrast roof. The roof is of 198mm ground clearance that is providing a good look.

The EcoSport is made with a stylish design with a sporty manner while retaining the rugged SUV look. The octagonal grille, tailgate-mounted spare wheel all lend and it has got a youthful air. It has also got a 200mm of ground clearance which is great for the Indian roads but can go off-roading in a serious no-no.

Tata Nexon, on the other hand, is made up of an impact design philosophy with a muscular stance and a coupe-like roofline that an make it distinctive. An attractive thing about the car is that it has got a horizontal strip that can divide the headlamp housing. It uses the body paint to contrast with the roof and with a ceramic finish around the headlamps, LED tail lamps and fog lamps. The 200mm ground clearance emphasizes the SUV look but is not as expected when it comes to being off-road.

When it comes to EcoSport, it is easy to find out the correct position to drive, thanks to the tilt and telescopic adjustment for the steering. Though, there are a few cubbies and storage spaces in the cabin of the car that have been topped with chrome with the looks of a bit garish and add to the premium feel for the customer.

The cabin of Tata Nexon is simple and straightforward as it is well-equipped with 6.5-inch HD touchscreen display, climate control, rear air-con vents and with a voice command for the eight-speaker Harman infotainment system. The various nooks in the car are available to store the objects that make the interiors a good place to be in. One standout feature in this car is that it has a drive mode controller.
