Maruti Suzuki Fronx vs Brezza: Variant-wise pricing compared
Maruti Suzuki Fronx was officially launched in the Indian car market at a starting price of ₹7.46 lakh (ex-showroom). Fronx is the latest SUV to join the Maruti Suzuki lineup as the company digs in its heels to lead the SUV segment in the country. Fronx has a long list of rivals but it will also have to compete against the Maruti Brezza which is similarly priced.
Maruti Suzuki Brezza was updated in 2022 and has been selling in hot numbers. Both Brezza and Fronx are sub-four-meter SUVs and while Fronx has a crossover-ish profile and with muscular hues, the Brezza is sculpted in a more authentic SUV flavour. But the differences between the two do not just end there. While Fronx comes with two engine options and is the only Maruti Suzuki vehicle thus far to get a 1.0-litre Turbo BoosterJet engine, the motor under the Brezza's hood is a 1.5-litre K-Series petrol unit. There are two automatic and one manual transmission option on the Fronx while there is one automatic and one manual transmission option on the Brezza.

The Fronx is being offered under the Nexa retail chain and is positioned as a premium offering from the company. Its turbo engine is likely to make it a compelling option and very aggressive pricing vis-a-vis Brezza could sway potential buyers away from the champion Maruti SUV to the new Maruti SUV on the block.
