Maruti Suzuki, the biggest car manufacturer in the country sells more than 50% cars of the total sales in India. While many of the trade pundits credit this success to budget products like Baleno, Swift and Alto, products like Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza are in fact doing a very good business in their own segment.
Vitara Brezza, the compact SUV from Suzuki not only is the leader in its own segment, but also competes with itself for the month-on-month sales. Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza has broken its own record of the highest ever monthly sales by recording a sales figure of 12,375 units in the month of May 2017.
When compared to the previous month’s numbers, Maruti managed to sell 10,653 units in April 2017. This makes the Vitara Brezza, the most sold compact SUV/SUV in the country today. Maruti sold more than a lakh Brezzas in less than a year's time, ever since it went on sale last March.
From February 2017 onwards, the monthly sales of Vitara Brezza has been 10,057 units in March, 10,653 units in April and now, 12,375 units in May. Taking the cumulative sales of 2017, Maruti has managed to sell close to 50000 units in just 5 months, averaging 10000 units/month.
Going by this pace, Brezza will cross the 1.5 lakh sales mark in no time. And theirs is no competition to come in near future, apart from the facelifted Ford Ecosport. While Tata is planning to launch the Nexon compact SUV, we are skeptical if it could rattle the dominance of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.
Such is the demand of the Brezza that Maruti is continuously witnessing a waiting period as long as 3 months. It is available only in one engine version – the 1.3-litre DDiS 200 unit that has a mileage of 24.3 kmpl, again the best in the segment.
Maruti Suzuki is now trying to increase the demand of the Brezza by introducing automated manual transmission and petrol engine options. While the SUV is priced for just Rs 7.26 Lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi), the petrol version will surely bring down the price tremendously.
