Maruti Vitara Brezza sales cross 1 lakh – Waiting period still high
Waiting period still stands for up to 6-8 months in some cities.
The newest Maruti Suzuki SUV on offer, the new Vitara Brezza has managed to create new record. It is the first ever SUV from Maruti Suzuki to achieve bookings of 2 lakh units and that too in just 9 months. In addition to that, Maruti Suzuki has also revealed that the Vitara Brezza sales have crossed 1 lakh units.
This huge demand has resulted in waiting period to be at up to 8 months even today, when it has been close to a year since the car was launched. Pending delivery orders stand at over 1 lakh units as of today.
The hugely successful compact SUV is offered in six trims, all powered by 1.3-liter diesel engine mated to a five-speed manual gearbox, Maruti Vitara Brezza claims to deliver a mileage of 24.3 kmpl. The engine onboard delivers max power of 90 PS and peak torque of 200 Nm.
Key features on offer with the Maruti Vitara Brezza are dual tone exterior colours, projector headlamps with LED DRLs, stylish 16 inch alloys, keyless entry, start / stop button, Smartplay infotainment system with smartphone integration, reverse parking display, navigation, and Apple Carplay.
Maruti has already confirmed the launch of a petrol Brezza, which is expected to be launched later this year. This motor will be a 1.4 liter unit, which is also seen on board the Ciaz and Ertiga. Along with that, there is also a possibility that AT variant of Brezza is in the making for India, after it made its debut earlier this year in Indonesia.
With Maruti planning on launching new variants of Brezza, booking numbers are obviously expected to increase. This will also result in increase in waiting period. But, as they are also set to commission their new plant in Gujarat, waiting period for Maruti cars are expected to come down in the future.
Vitara Brezza is not the only successful car Maruti Suzuki has launched in recent years. Baleno has already proved its mettle in the Indian market while the newly launched Ignis has also had a promising start.
