Maruti Vitara Brezza has also helped the brand boost its sales by 20% last month; it is currently the best-selling SUV in India
Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is certainly one of the most successful products from the Indo-Japanese automaker. The compact SUV has seen immense popularity since its launch here and the car has registered its highest ever sales in July 2017 with 15,243 units sold. Interestingly, Vitara Brezza alone has increased Maruti Suzuki’s sales by 20%.
Maruti Suzuki launched the Vitara Brezza in domestic market in mid 2016 after displaying it at 2016 New Delhi Auto Expo. In May this year, the compact SUV registered 12,375 units, which was the best ever sales record for the car, but now it has broken that record. Thanks to the GST, Maruti Suzuki has slashed the pricing of Vitara Brezza significantly.
With the reduced pricing, the SUV has been able to post its best ever sales record. Thanks to this car, Maruti Suzuki has garnered a strong position in the highly competitive SUV segment in India. However, it is to be seen how the car performs after its newest rival Tata Nexon arrives in market during the upcoming festive season.
With the reduced pricing, the Maruti Vitara Brezza is expected to continue the sales momentum further. Also, as the brand is preparing to launch the Vitara Brezza Boosterjet in late 2017 or in early 2018, the powerful turbocharged petrol engine is likely to boost the sales further.
Currently, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is available with a Fiat sourced 1.3-litre DDiS diesel engine under the hood paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox. The engine is capable of churning out 89 bhp at 4,000 rpm and 200 Nm of peak torque at 1,750 rpm. Apart from this efficient engine, the SUV’s aggressive design and premium features inside the cabin have helped it to become very appealing to the customers. Currently, it is priced between Rs. 7.24 lakh and Rs. 9.91 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi).
