Maruti Brezza: Why’s everyone’s buying this compact SUV

The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is the best selling SUV in the country today. In the month of October, the Brezza recorded its highest-ever sales numbers in a month with Maruti Suzuki shipping out 15,832 units of the compact SUV. In this post, we take a look at just why everyone seems to be buying the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.

The Maruti Trust Factor

Ever since the launch of the SS80 Maruti 800 in 1983, Maruti Suzuki has been the brand of choice of Indians across generations. Maruti’s name is associated with trustworthiness and for making affordable cars that are highly fuel efficient and easy to run.

The Vitara Brezza, which is the first compact SUV from Maruti Suzuki has benefitted from the trust in the brand. This, in turn, has also helped Maruti Suzuki become the best-selling SUV brand in the country.

Value For Money

Maruti’s cars are known for their value for money and the Brezza builds on that knowledge. In the Indian car market today, only the Tata Nexon is more affordable than the Brezza when it comes to price. Maruti’s reputation for giving feature-packed vehicles to customers at a much lower price compared to its rivals has carried over to the Nexon, which offers dual airbags, ABS and parking sensors as standard on every variant.

The top-spec Nexon gets LED DRLS, a reversing camera, a large touchscreen infotainment system and many other features including a dual tone paint job at under Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom), which for the customers is a proper winning combo at a good price.

AMT Gearbox

With the roads of our nation’s cities getting more and more congested every day, many new car owners are opting for automatic gearbox cars and SUVs. The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is the most affordable automatic SUV currently on sale in India with prices for the AMT variants starting at just Rs 8.60 lakhs ex-showroom (Delhi).

Also unlike most torque converter gearbox options, the Vitara Brezza’s gearbox is an automated manual transmission. This means no loss of mileage that many people usually associate with automatic cars. So people who buy the AMT Brezza don’t have to go through the chore of shifting every other moment in the jam while still getting the same impressive mileage figure of 24.29 km/l.

Customization Options

Maruti Suzuki offers numerous customization options for the Vitara Brezza through its i-Create program which can be chosen at the dealership itself. These customizations options include the dual-tone paint job for the top-spec car along with other customization options including graphics for the bonnet roof, sides and the rear end of the Brezza. There are customization options for the Brezza’s interior on offer as well

Sales & Service Network

Maruti Suzuki has the largest sales and service network among all the carmakers in the nation today. So this means that you can easily purchase and then, later on, service your Vitara Brezza in almost every small city or town in the city. This also means that in case of any unfortunate breakdown, a Maruti service centre is not too far away to help out a Brezza owner, which cannot be said for the dealerships of its rivals.
