Proton Suzuki Vitara Brezza 3

UPDATE: This was an April Fool’s 2016 post.

Now this will get quite a lot of us excited. We have photos of what appears to be a Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza wearing a Proton badge. Is the local carmaker planning to rebadge the new B-segment SUV for the local market? Remember the date, boys and girls – you heard it here first!

The pictures – supplied by regular contributor Theophilus Chin, so no doubting their authenticity, then – show two near-standard Brezzas. Only things of note are the Proton badges up front, and the Malaysian road tax stickers on them.

We are only publishing low-res photos for now, to respect the internal source’s request to stay anonymous. Having seen the full high resolution images, we can report that the road tax stickers are indeed current (valid until April 1, 2017), adding more credibility to this scoop.

So, what do you think of this Proton compact crossover, guys? Let us know in the comments section below.
