- Maruti Suzuki posted positive sales growth in October 2019 after 4 months.
- Maruti Vitara Brezza diesel to be phased out before April 2020.
- Maruti DZire and Swift diesel variants also to be discontinued by April 2020.
It was the month of October 2019, which brought respite and joy for Maruti Suzuki as after four months in a row, it was able to post positive sales growth in the Indian market. It sold 141,848 units in October 2018 which was 28 percent higher than the previous month's sale.
Not only this, it marked a growth of 4.3 percent as compared to October 2018. The company dealerships are offering huge discounts on the diesel variants of Vitara Brezza, Swift and DZire in November 2019.
Speaking of the Maruti Vitara Brezza, it is only available in diesel guise. The company is offering discounts worth Rs 75,000 which includes consumer and corporate benefits as well as the exchange bonus. In addition, the free of cost five-year/1,00,000km extended warranty is also up for grabs.
The Vitara Brezza was firstly launched almost four years back in 2016 and the sales have started to decline now due to new competitors with advanced features and lack of a petrol engine. Maruti has planned to launch the Vitara Brezza Facelift in 2020 with a BS 6 certified petrol engine and hence it is offering discounts to clear the inventory.

Next in the line is Maruti Dzire diesel, which is available at a discount of Rs 65,000 and a free five-year extended warranty. Last but not the least, Maruti Swift diesel is also offered with benefits of up to Rs 60,000 which includes cash, corporate and exchange bonuses.
The extended warranty benefits are also similar to Vitara Brezza and Dzire. The foremost reason behind these huge discounts on these models, despite the fact that they are best-selling models, is that Maruti wants to clear the diesel inventory as after the implementation of BS 6 emission norms on April 1, 2020, it will not sale the diesel vehicles.
