Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza has become an instant hit in the Indian market and the compact SUV has been witnessing an overwhelming response since its entry into the market. The SUV, which made its market entry in March, has already garnered over 55,000 bookings and the waiting period of the model has gone up to nine months in some cities. Now to meet the increasing demand for the new Vitara Brezza, Maruti Suzuki is planning to ramp up production again, according to a report of Moneycontrol.

Maruti Suzuki had earlier increased the annual production target of Vitara Brezza to 1.2 lakh from the previous target of one lakh. It was being reported that over 50 percent of the total bookings for the Vitara Brezza is for the top-end variants. Maruti Suzuki has reportedly also lowered the production of its bread and butter models -- the Swift and the Dzire -- at its Gurgaon plant to accommodate its current hot-selling models, the Baleno and the Vitara Brezza. The Baleno, the premium hatchback of the company, has also been earning great response from auto lovers.

The Vitara Brezza is the first model of Maruti Suzuki to be conceptualised, designed, developed and validated in India. It is offered in LDi, LDi (O), VDi, VDi (O), ZDi, ZDi+ and ZDi+ variants. The compact SUV is powered by a 200 DDis 1248cc diesel engine that develops 88.5bhp at 4,000rpm and 200Nm of torque at 1,750rpm mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. It boasts of best-in-class fuel efficiency of 24.3 kmpl.
