A report of IndianAutosBlog says that the current waiting period of the Vitara Brezza stands at seven months and the company has so far could have delivered over 1 lakh units of the model to its customers. Maruti Suzuki has garnered over 2 lakh bookings for the Vitara Brezza compact SUV and has huge backlog for the same.
