In a bid to reduce the waiting period for its popular subcompact offering, Maruti Suzuki has announced that has ramped up production of the Vitara Brezza. The production has been increased by 10 per cent to 94,000 units between April and October 2018, as compared to the same period last year. Launched in 2016, the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza turned out to be a game changer for the automaker with the subcompact SUV showing no signs of slowing down in terms of demand. The Vitara Brezza is produced at Maruti's Sanand facility in Gujarat, with the waiting period around four to six weeks at present.
