Five years after its debut in India, the Maruti Brezza has crossed 6 lakh sales milestone. It means that, on average, Maruti has sold 13 units of the Brezza every hour in the last five years.
While Maruti Suzuki doesn’t have a strong presence in the SUV segment as it does in the hatchback space, it still receives considerable success with the best-selling sub-four-meter compact SUV, Maruti Vitara Brezza. Recently, the popular SUV from Maruti has reached the 6 lakh sales milestone. It took Brezza 5 years to achieve this accomplishment. It is estimated that in the last 5 years, Mahindra has sold 13 units of the Brezza across the country every hour.
Maruti Brezza has sold over 6,00,000 Maruti Brezza since its launch in India
At its launch in 2016, the Maruti Vitara Brezza has gained instant recognition from the customers. Over the years, the SUV continues to strengthen its number one position in the market. Even though the competition within this segment is getting fiercer every day with newer and more attractive models to enter the market, the Maruti Brezza is still among the top models in the space.
Sharing about the latest success of the Maruti Brezza, Mr Shashank Srivastava, Executive Director (Marketing & Sales), Maruti Suzuki India Limited said:
“It is a delight to announce that India’s best-selling compact SUV has further strengthened its position as the market leader with the sales of 6 Lakh units. This is a testimony of our customers’ elevated support and love for the brand, especially in a segment which is traditionally diesel driven.”
According to him, the Maruti Brezza is warmly welcomed by the Indian customer owing to “its all-in-one package of power, refinement, convenience, comfort and premium-ness”. He also highlighted that the Brezza is highly appreciated for its “strong SUV stance and sporty character which gives the urban SUV a butch and bold look”. These fantastic attributes have helped the Brezza to become popular among Indian buyers.
At launch, Maruti Vitara Brezza was offered exclusively with a Fiat-sourced D13A 1.3-litre diesel engine that makes 90 PS and 200 Nm. However, since the implementation of the BSVI emission norms, Maruti discontinued all diesel models on its product range, including the diesel Brezza. The old diesel engine was replaced by a K15 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol unit. This new engine is capable of making 105PS and 138Nm. It is available with either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic unit. The automatic gearbox works with an SHVS mild-hybrid system that enhances the fuel efficiency of the car.
It is reported that the Maruti Brezza is about to receive its generation update later this year.
