Maruti Suzuki, the country's largest car-maker, will increase the production of its compact SUV Vitara Brezza at its Gurgaon plants from July to meet the scaling demand for the compact SUV. According to a report by the Economic Times, Maruti has over 52,000 bookings for the Vitara Brezza for which the car-maker is yet to make deliveries.
Maruti launched the Vitara Breza in India in March and the compact SUV has garnered over 75,000 bookings since the launch. The unprecedented demand for the model in the domestic market has resulted in extended waiting period of nine months in some of the cities and dealers of Maruti are struggling to deliver the order on time. Although Maruti earlier increased the production of the Vitara Brezza from 80,000 per annum to 1 lakh per annum, the company is still not able to meet the increasing demand. According to the report, the production will be ramped up to 10,000 units a month from July and it is expected to cut down the waiting period.
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.
Available in LDi, LDi (O), VDi, VDi (O), ZDi, ZDi+ and ZDi+ dual tone trims with six colour options, the Vitara Brezza houses features like electrically foldable ORVMs with integrated turn-indicators, a reverse parking camera, Smartplay infotainment system, cooled glove box, cruise control, projector headlamps and in-built navigation.
