Maruti Suzuki has sold over 2.75 lakh units of the Vitara Brezza subcompact SUV in India since its launch in 2016. The company recently revealed the new sales milestone along with the launch announcement of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza automatic (AMT), which is now available at a starting price of ₹ 8.54 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Interestingly, the range-topping ZDI and ZDI+ trims are among the highest selling variants and have contributed to about 56 per cent of the SUV's total sales.
The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza was launched in India over two years ago in March 2016. Within months the SUV surpassed the Mahindra Bolero to become the country's top-selling utility vehicle and currently commands an average monthly sale of over 12,300 units. In fact, last month alone, Maruti Suzuki India's sales from the utility vehicle space were 20,804 units and the Vitara Brezza likely accounts for over 50 per cent of it. Talking about the Vitara Brezza, R S Kalsi, Senior Executive Director (Marketing and Sales), MSIL said, "Vitara Brezza has been a game changer for India's SUV market. We have enhanced its allure to meet aspirations of our young customers. They now have the option of Auto Gear Shift, the acclaimed two-pedal technology, for enhanced convenience."
