Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza has emerged as a bestseller in the compact SUV segment with four lakh cumulative sales in less than three years. Supporting claims, the Vitara Brezza currently holds a market share of 44.1 per cent in the compact SUV segment. Moreover, the company has reported a year-to-date sales growth of seven per cent with a monthly average of 14,675 unit sales.

Maruti Suzuki had introduced an AGS (popularly known as the AMT) option for the Vitara Brezza in May 2018. Over time, the variant has emerged as a popular choice among customers with 20 per cent of total sales coming from the AGS option. The compact SUV is powered by a 1.3-litre diesel engine that generates 89bhp at 4,000rpm and 200Nm of torque at 1,750rpm. Under new safety norms in the country, the Vitara Brezza is now available with standard safety features in the form of dual air bags, ABS with EBD, high speed warning alert, ISOFIX child restraint system, reverse parking sensors and front seat belt pre-tensioners and force limiters.

Speaking on its success, R S Kalsi, Senior Executive Director (Marketing and Sales), Maruti Suzuki said, “Vitara Brezza with its sporty and glamourous traits has struck the right chord with Indian customers. The dual-tone colour option in Vitara Brezza is highly appreciated by its customers. Indeed, Vitara Brezza has transformed the compact SUV landscape in India. It continues to be the most loved and awarded SUV despite several new entrants into the segment. The benchmark success of Vitara Brezza with over 4 lakh customers in less than three years is a testimony of the customers’ increasing preference towards the refreshed design and innovative features of the compact SUV. We would like to extend our heartiest gratitude to our Vitara Brezza customers and particularly those who have chosen to wait for their loved car.”
