Maruti Vitara Brezza

Mumbai: Maruti Suzuki dispatched 5,563 units of its new compact SUV Vitara Brezza in March, according to media reports.

The bookings for SUV commenced on 8th March but the deliveries started only on 25th March.

Vitara Brezza has been priced at Rs. 6.99 lakh and is a competition to the likes of Renault Duster and Ford EcoSport.

Maruti Suzuki had initially planned production of 80,000 units per year, but later increased it to 100,000 units owing to the strong reception the model got at the Auto Expo 2016, reports a financial newspaper.

Powered by a 1.3 litre diesel engine, Brezza's claimed fuel efficiency of 24.3 kilometers makes it the most fuel efficient SUV in the country.

The four-cylinder engine produces 89bhp of max power at 4000rpm and a torque of 200Nm at 1750rpm.

Maruti plans to launch two new models, Ignis and Baleno RS, in the festival period of 2016 as it looks to carry forward the momentum from FY16 with a double-digit growth in FY17.

The company, which posted its highest-ever total sales at 14,29,248 units in FY16 at a growth rate of 10.6 per cent, had launched three models - S Cross, Baleno and Vitara Brezza in FY16.
