Fight of the Gladiators: Vitara vs Ecosport vs TUV300
BENGALURU: Vitara Brezza from the stables of Maruti can easily be termed as the most anticipated launch of the year, till date. Starting at INR 6.99 lakhs for the base variant, it was the cheapest car in the in the sub-four meter SUV space– a fact that was immediately eclipsed by Ford when it cut down the prices of the EcoSport from Rs 53,700 to 1.12 lakh depending on the variant. However, unlike the Brezza or the Mahindra TUV300, the EcoSport is available with two petrol engine options. So the high base variant price of the other two SUVs’ could easily be justified by the fact that there are no petrol variants and they are only offered in diesel variants. Let’s put all three to a quick comparison and go through the details as compiled by Abhijeet Singh Rathore for CarDekho.com
If you plan to buy a car from the compact SUV class, you would naturally want it to show off that tough masculine SUV appeal. Well, these three gladiators seem to satisfy that requisite and don’t walk back from blatantly touting their vigor.
Starting with the latest entrant, the Vitara Breeza incorporates first-in-segment features like projector headlamps and floating roof. It also gives you various color options on the roof and 16-inch alloy wheels, which gives it the muscular feel.
Speaking of the others, the EcoSport has got a fresh look and stands on the same plane as the others. However, unlike the Brezza, it misses out on projector headlamps and the wide array of color combinations that Brezza has to offer. The TUV300, on the other hand, looks the most muscular of the three, thanks to its utterly square set-up. The squared-off theme of the exteriors finds its home in the headlamps, tail lamps, the window lines and the silhouette. Moreover, EcoSport’s design isn't as sporty and bold as the other two.
