Maruti Suzuki launched the Vitara Brezza facelift in India on February 24, 2020. With the launch of the facelift, the subcompact SUV also got a brand new petrol engine with manual and automatic transmissions. This also meant that the diesel variant was discontinued, but clearly, the SUV still remains a strong seller for the company. Maruti Suzuki in fact has received 25,000 bookings for the Vitara Brezza already. In an exclusive interview on the latest episode of Freewheeling with SVP, Shashank Srivastava, Executive Director - Marketing & Sales, Maruti Suzuki India, said, "We have had 25000 bookings for the Brezza so far and In the short period of time from when the Brezza was launched and the lockdown began, and in that short period of time we have been able to get a very good response for the car. And going forward we are very confident about the Brezza of course."
