What does this mean for the Indian market

This really took us by surprise when we first heard the news that at the ongoing 2016 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show an Indian made Vitara Brezza compact SUV with AT made its appearance. Actually after its official debut at the 2016 Auto expo in Delhi this was the second auto expo where the sub-4 meter compact SUV actually made its appearance.

The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza will be sold under the Suzuki banner and will be launched at a later stage in the Indonesian market. The compact SUV will be sold in the Indonesian market with a single diesel engine option which will come paired to both 5 speed manual as well as an automatic transmission. Though what is surprising is the fact that the Indonesian market will be the very first market which will get the Automatic transmission variant of the Vitara Brezza.

Although the engine option offered in the Indonesian market is the 1.3 litre, four cylinder DDiS diesel unit which is capable of producing about 90 Ps of peak power and 200 Nm of torque and is already on offer in India as well. But the best part is that it will be available with both the 5 speed manual as well as an Automatic transmission which will be available as an option. Although India gets the same engine but only with single 5 speed manual gearbox.

The Vitara Brezza won the title of India’s largest selling UV of the Country last month by able to sell over 10, 000 units. There is a waiting period of over 6-9 months for the compact SUV at this moment in our Country.
