The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza made its debut at the 2016 Auto Expo. Since its launch, the model has remained on the top of the sales chart and even became the best-selling Utility Vehicle in the Indian market. In fact, the sales of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza remained unaffected by the launch of new products in the segment like the Hyundai Venue.

Mr Shashank Srivastava, Executive Director (Marketing & Sales), Maruti Suzuki India Limited said,

Offering a complete package of class-leading features, stylish design, and outstanding fuel efficiency, the most awarded compact SUV, Vitara Brezza gained immense popularity within months of its launch. Designed and developed by the team at Maruti Suzuki using Suzuki core technology, Vitara Brezza struck the right chord with Indian customers. The 5 lakh unit sales in just 47 months is testimony of the customer’s increasing preference for stylish and feature-packed compact SUV. We extend our gratitude to our customers for their constant support. We are confident that Vitara Brezza will continue to win the hearts of customers across India.

The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is currently powered by only by a diesel engine option. However, the manufacturer has already announced that no diesel model will be available in the line-up once the BS6 emission norm comes into place. Maruti Suzuki is currently working on the new version of the Vitara Brezza, which will be a facelifted model and will get powered by a petrol engine option.

The upcoming Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza will get a new grille, new bumpers and new elements in the headlamps. The cabin will also get updated and will look modern. Also, Maruti Suzuki will add a slew of new features to the Vitara Brezza. However, the biggest change in the upcoming vehicle will be the addition of the 1.5-litre petrol engine that powers the Ertiga and the Ciaz in the Indian market. The 1.5-litre petrol engine in the sub-4m compact SUV will void any tax benefits, which will translate into a higher price. The upcoming Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza’s petrol variants will be priced similar to the current diesel variants of the vehicle.
