Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza deliveries begin; powered by 90 PS 1.3L DDiS diesel engine with class-leading fuel economy of 24.3 kmpl
Maruti Suzuki announced a couple of days ago that the newly launched Vitara Brezza will be delivered from the showrooms to the customers from today onwards. The price listing for the all-new subcompact SUV from the largest auto maker in the country was revealed on March 8th.
Venturing into the highly competitive sub-4m SUV segment for the first time, Maruti Suzuki hosted the debut of the Vitara Brezza back at the Auto Expo 2016 in early February in Greater Noida. The show spectators, media personnel and the automotive industry experts regarded the utility vehicle’s global premiere as the highlight of the grand Indian motoring exhibition.
The overwhelming response was evident to the fact that about 5,600 bookings were made within 48 hours since the Indo-Japanese manufacturer began taking orders. As the days went on, Maruti Suzuki has officially announced that 20,000 bookings were already registered for the hatchback-like SUV that competes against Ford EcoSport and the Mahindra TUV300.
