    The waiting periods for Maruti Suzuki Arena models are on a constant rise, due to increasing demand for CNG and automatic variants. We’ve got our hands on the complete waiting period list for Maruti Arena models for the month of July 2022. Read on to find out which Maruti model and variant can be had the soonest.

    • Ertiga CNG most in demand, has up to 9-month waiting
    • S-Presso, Alto can be delivered within 2 to 6 weeks
    • Brezza automatic waiting period currently at 4 months

    45,000-unit order backlog from previous-gen Brezza 

    According to dealer sources, the Ertiga CNG is currently the most in demand, followed by the new Brezza. The recent Ertiga facelift also added the new 103hp, 1.5-litre engine along with some more features. And while the model already had a sizeable backlog, there is even more interest in the MPV after the update. Lower variants of the Ertiga petrol can be had in about three months and mid to higher variants, especially the CNG-powered ones, will take as long as nine months for delivery. 

    The all-new Brezza too went on sale recently but Maruti has an order backlog of around 45,000 units from the previous-gen model. The carmaker is expected to clear this backlog first and with the new Brezza. Thus, customers booking the Brezza now can expect a minimum waiting period of three months for the lower variants, while the top-spec and automatic variants have a much longer waiting period, stretching to over four months at some locations. This means that deliveries for most units of the Brezza automatic booked now can take place only around or after Diwali this year. 

    Maruti’s other popular models, such as the automatic versions of the Swift and CNG versions of the Dzire, also have an average waiting period of around 3 months.

Meanwhile, the lowest waiting period of around 2-4 weeks can be seen on the manual versions of the Alto 800 and the S-Presso hatchbacks.
