There’s simply no stopping India’s best selling SUV – the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza. The sub-4 meter SUV has just raced past another milestone to become India’s fastest selling SUV. Maruti has sold 3 lakh units of the Brezza compact SUV in India, in just 28 months. No other SUV has ever achieved such high sales numbers in such a short period of time. In fact, Maruti now sells over 12,500 units of the Brezza each month, on an average, which is much higher than the average sales numbers of all other sub-4 meter compact SUVs put together.
Here’s a comment from RS Kalsi, the Senior Executive Director (Marketing and Sales), Maruti Suzuki,
Vitara Brezza is a breakthrough product, which created disruption in the SUV market. With its sporty and glamouros traits, Vitara Brezza continues to be the most loved SUV despite several new entrants into the segment. The contribution of the top variants in the total sales of Vitara Brezza has zoomed to 56%. This is a testimony to the fact that customers appreciated the refreshed design and innovative features in Vitara Brezza. The Auto Gear Shift has enticed the aspiration of ever evolving customers. We would like to extend our heartiest gratitude to our Vitara Brezza customers and particularly those who have chosen to wait for their loved car.
The Maruti Brezza is also exported to many countries around the world. Maruti’s first sub-4 meter compact SUV, the Vitara Brezza has been a superhit right from the word go. It competes with the Ford EcoSport, the Tata Nexon and the Mahindra TUV300. While most of its competitors offer both petrol and diesel engines, the Vitara Brezza is a diesel-only SUV, making its massive success all the more significant. The SUV uses the 1.3-litre Fiat Multijet turbocharged diesel engine in 89 Bhp-200 Nm state of tune.
Five-speed manual and AMT options are on offer, and the SUV is front wheel driven. Maruti now offers airbags, ABS and ISOFIX child seats as standard on all variants of the Brezza. A petrol-engined variant is said to be in the works for a while now, but a clear launch timeline for this variant is yet to be revealed. Prices of the Vitara Brezza start from Rs. 7.59 lakhs, ex-showroom Delhi, making the compact SUV quite competitively priced in its segment.
