It's mighty bold to predict a vehicle's success even before it's made its debut in a market. Scheduled for a South African launch in February 2021, the Suzuki Vitara Brezza - or Brezza, for ease of pronunciation - will grace the local market with its presence and expand the Japanese company's product offering.
