Maruti Suzuki is set to commence the delivery of the new Vitara Brezza from March 25 in India. The compact SUV, which was launched in the country March 8, has garnered over 20,000 bookings within two weeks of its entry. While overwhelming response is expected to put the dealers of Maruti Suzuki in a tough situation, the latest reports suggest that the company will keep the waiting period of its new compact SUV offering at minimum.
A report of RushLane says that the waiting period of the Vitara Brezza will be minimal in the country. Maruti Suzuki has increased the production of the Vitara Brezza to 1 lakh from the previous 80,000 after seeing the response at the Auto Expo 2016. The Vitara Brezza was first showcased at the Auto Expo in Delhi.
The Vitara Brezza compact SUV, conceived, designed and developed in India by Maruti's R&D team led by Chief Engineer CV Raman, has been priced in the range of Rs 6.99 lakh to Rs 9.68 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Offered in LDi, LDi (O), VDi, VDi (O), ZDi, ZDi+ and ZDi+ dual tone trims with six colour options, the Vitara Brezza 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.
