Being under 4m with a 1.3L diesel motor, it only receives a small reduction in tax rate.
Maruti has announced the updated prices of the whole range, for which most models have received a price slash by 3 percent. Prices for the Vitara Brezza, India's best selling UV, has been slashed by INR 2,148, courtesy of the GST revision.
Here is the model wise price list pre-GST and post-GST (ex-showroom Delhi):
|Maruti Vitara Brezza Variant||Pre-GST price
|Vitara Brezza LDI||7,26,107||7,23,962|
|Vitara Brezza LDI (O)||7,39,017||7,36,869|
|Vitara Brezza VDI||7,78,017||7,77,067|
|Vitara Brezza VDI (O)||7,91,017||7,90,067|
|Vitara Brezza ZDI||8,71,017||8,70,068|

|Vitara Brezza ZDI+ Dual Tone||9,92,017||9,91,068|
Being under 4m with a 1.3L diesel motor, the Vitara Brezza only receives a small reduction in the tax rate as compared to the pre-GST rate. It still remains one of the least expensive compact monocoque SUVs in the market, and the small price reduction will have very little impact to the overwhelming demand it continues to receive.
Under the hood is a 1.3L DDiS 200 motor paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox, which produces 90 PS and 200 Nm of peak torque. It is capable of averaging a fuel economy of 24.3 km/L. Also in the works are the petrol and the diesel automatic variants, which could be introduced once market demand begins to subside.
For reference, the Vitara Brezza registered record-breaking monthly sales of 12,375 units last May and has helped Maruti emerge as the leading manufacturer of UVs this fiscal.
