MSIL plans to outsell Brezza’s competitors and secure a market share of 45-50 percent in two years.

Kenichi Ayukawa, Managing Director of Maruti Suzuki India, told Economic Times that the company is planning to take leadership in the Brezza’s segment in 12-24 months. The closest rivals of the compact SUV are the Ford EcoSport and the Mahindra TUV300. He added that “if we are creating a product for the new segment, we have to be number one in the segment. If the segment grows to about 1.5 to 2 lakh units per annum, we would aim at 45-50% segment share.”
