Despite vigorous production, the Vitara Brezza witnessed the high waiting period of over 20 weeks at a time. Though, the company managed to bring it down up to 17 weeks. Just so you know, the production of the SUV takes place at the carmaker’s Gurgaon plant.
Prices of the Maruti Vitara Brezza start from Rs 7.24 lakh for the base model and go up to Rs 9.69 lakh for the high-spec variant. Currently, the compact SUV is available with a 1.3-litre DDiS 200 diesel powertrain paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. This motor is capable to make power worth 89bhp (90PS) against 200Nm of toque.
The Indo-Japanese carmaker is planning to introduce petrol iteration of the Vitara Brezza along with an automatic variant.
