13 Maruti Vitara Brezza Selling every hour for the last 5 years
Maruti Suzuki India Ltd (MSIL), the country’s top-selling automaker, has just announced the achievement of a 6-lakh sales milestone for the country Vitara Breeze. The B-SUV introduced in 2016 took a relatively short period of 5 years to set this sales record. Some quick calculations show that the automaker has sold an average of more than 13 units of the brezza per hour since it was launched less than 5 years ago. For the uninitiated, the Maruti Vitara Brezza went on sale in 2016 and made it to the top of the sales charts pretty quickly. While its popularity with the advent of fresher models, such as Hyundai venue and Kia SonetIt’s still a regular in the top 2 monthly sales charts of the entry-level SUV.
Commenting on the success, Shashank Srivastava, Executive Director (Marketing & Sales) of Maruti Suzuki India Limited:
Vitara Brezza was launched in 2016 and has consistently received recognition from its customers and critics for its comprehensive package of performance, sophistication, convenience, convenience and premium quality. Vitara Brezza is valued for its strong SUV stance and sporty character, which gives the urban SUV a sleek and bold look and makes it extremely popular with SUV customers. At the beginning of last year we presented the 1.5-liter 4-cylinder petrol engine in the brand new Vitara Brezza. This makes it the most sophisticated SUV in its segment. It is a pleasure to announce that India’s best-selling compact SUV has further strengthened its position as the market leader with sales of 6 lakh units. This is proof of the increased support and love our customers have for the brand, especially in a segment that traditionally runs on diesel.
When it was first started, the Maruti Vitara Brezza was equipped with a 1.3-liter D13A oil burner from Fiat, which produced 90 hp and 200 Nm. However, last year, with the advent of the BS6 standards, the carmaker decided to replace the diesel mill with the 1.5-liter K15 suction fuel mill with 105 hp and 138 Nm. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual transmission and a 4-speed automatic unit. The latter works with the company’s SHVS mild hybrid setup, which improves fuel economy slightly. If the ARAI tests are to be believed, the manual version is a cable with a fuel efficiency of 17.03 km / l, while the automatic version can deliver up to 18.76 km / l.
We learned that earlier this year Maruti Suzuki is likely to debut the next generation Vitara Brezza towards the end of the current calendar year. The full model replacement for the hot seller was speculated earlier to debut a bit earlier, but it looks like the pandemic and move to the BS6 regime has delayed things a bit.
