The country’s largest automaker Maruti Suzuki expanded its line-up with the Vitara Brezza in the compact SUV segment. Ruling the segment since its launch way back in March this year, for the second time the automaker has crossed the 10,000 unit sales mark in the country. In October, the company sold around 10, 056 units of the Vitara Brezza, while in July the automaker sold around 10,232 units.
Reports indicate that Maruti Suzuki has sold over 60,000 units of the compact SUV since its launch and by the end of this year, hopes to reach the 1 lakh sales mark. As of now, the popular selling model attracts a waiting period of about six to eight months depending on the variants and the company is working on enhancing its outputs to cater to surging demand. Apart from being an impressive seller for Maruti Suzuki, the model also features among top 10 bestselling cars in the country last month.
Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is powered by a 1.3-litre four-cylinder diesel engine, which puts out 88bhp of power and 200Nm of torque. The fairly powered engine comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The compact SUV is available in LDi/LDi (O), VDi/VDi (O), ZDi and ZDi+ variants with prices starting around Rs 7.19 lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi). Sometime at a later date, the automaker might introduce a petrol variant.
