The Maruti Vitara Brezza which was launched in early March has managed to garner over 1 lakh bookings. The higher than expected demand has prompted Maruti to increase the crossover’s production target from 1 lakh units to 1.2 lakh units in the first year.
As of now, the Vitara Brezza sitting on an order backlog of over 52,000 units. The automaker is taking several measures including borrowing production capacity from other popular models to produce more units of the sub-4 SUV.
The Vitara Brezza with its boxy styling, well-equipped interior and attractive pricing managed to establish itself as the leader in the sub-4 crossover segment without wasting any time. The Ford EcoSport rival has been churning out consistent monthly sales, restricted only by Maruti’s production constraint.
Available only in diesel version, the Vitara Brezza is based on the global Suzuki Vitara’s platform but the dimensions are smaller. The design too has some similarities with the larger and more upmarket European cousin.
Power comes from the familiar 1.3-litre DDiS diesel engine which is paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. Available only in FWD configuration, the crossover has 90 PS and 200 Nm of torque on offer.
