Rushlane has learnt from its dealer sources that the Maruti Vitara Brezza waiting period extends up to 6 months depending on the variant and location. The sub-4 compact crossover got off to a great start and since its launch in early March, it has surpassed 40,000 bookings.

The company dispatched around 5,500 units last month and is expected to step up the production rate in the coming months. The Vitara Brezza is set to enter the top 10 best selling cars list by May.

It’s to be noted that the EcoSport got cheaper by more than INR 1 lakh post the Brezza’s launch.
