Vitara Brezza from Maruti Suzuki has recently crossed the milestone of 3 lakh unit sales. The one and only SUV from Suzuki which was launched in March 2016 is available only in the diesel engine. This SUV has got the tag of largest selling SUV in India though with a minimum margin.
Suzuki is increasing its market with its new designs that include ciaz, ertiga and baleno also. The new generation Vitara Brezza is standing as the true successor of its discontinued flagship SUV the Vitara. The company feels very proud that its model has done all this in just 28 months.
Now, Suzuki introduced an automatic gear train to its 1.3L diesel engine that can give out 89bhp power and 200Nm torque. Being an SUV, this model also gives an impressive mileage of 24.29kmpl for both manual and automatic versions. Maruti Suzuki names this AMT gear train as ” AGS gearbox”. The AGS system is already present in Mauti’s dezire but unlike the sedan, this model starts off very smoothly.
Suzuki has been selling 12000 units of brezza every month. The company also believes that the manufacturing capacity is the biggest hurdle for other carmakers irrespective of the model’s popularity.
” Vitara Brezza is a breakthrough product, which created disruption in the SUV market. With its sporty and glamorous traits, Vitara Brezza continues to be the most loved SUV despite several new entrants into the segment. The contribution of the top variants in total sales of Vitara Brezza has been 56%. This is a solid proof that customers have appreciated the new looks and design of the Vitara Brezza.
