The recently-launched Maruti Vitara Brezza has garnered over 2,600 bookings, the company tweeted out recently. While the tweet mentions that 2,600 bookings were recorded in 24 hours, it should be remembered that several dealers started accepting bookings for the compact SUV since early-February.

Deliveries of the Brezza are announced to start from the end of this month. Buyers can opt from seven variants, including a top-end variant with a dual-tone exterior color.
The 1.3-liter DDiS four-cylinder diesel engine in Brezza develops 90 PS and 200 Nm of torque, and delivers an ARAI-certified fuel efficiency of 24.3 km/l. For now, only a 5-speed manual gearbox is on offer, though company officials indicate that an AMT could be introduced later in the lifecycle. The Brezza claims 0-100 km/h in 13.3 seconds.
All variants of the Vitara Brezza get a driver airbag as standard. An option pack for the L and V variants adds ABS, EBD and passenger airbag, whereas these features are standard on the Z trims. In addition, the ZDi+ is equipped with projector headlights with LED daytime running lights, 16-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, SmartPlay entertainment system with Apple CarPlay and keyless entry and start system.
