Looks like Autocarindia review is fabricated, will wait for TEAM-BHP review.

When Maruti Suzuki claims 0-100 km/h in 13.3 seconds for Brezza, how can Autocarindia claim 12.96?

Less than 2 months from launch to deliveries. Something other manufacturers should learn from.
.

My sentiments exactly. Case in point the Tiago/ fiasco and Kite S sedan. So much promise but a case of too late may be too little. I hope they start deliveries of both at least by next year lol. Otherwise it'll turn out to be a car that everyone wants but very few buy. If they were not ready with production they shouldn't have shown it at the event. Anyway, let's see how they handle this. Five highs to Maruti in this department.

What was left unsaid in my comment was the feature list.

Compare the feature list of the two, and you may come to a different conclusion. Variant for variant, it's the Brezza that appears better loaded than Ertiga (apart from the rear A/C).

Therefore, it's the Ertiga which appears overpriced when compared to Brezza. But it does have its own advantages (4m+, 7 seats, flexible 2nd row legroom, second row A/C etc.) compared to Vitara Brezza.

A car is not a smartphone that can be sold at or below manufacturing cost. Expecting unrealistic bargain basement pricing at every new launch has unfortunately become a trend on Team-BHP. Thankfully, manufacturers have understood that the market has long moved on from being price-conscious to becoming value-conscious. Price no longer dictates the success of any car, value does. The Vitara Brezza is very good value-for-money indeed, and its marketplace success is only going to confirm this!

Maruti Suzuki may eventually hike the introductory prices, but make no mistake - we are looking at a cleverly positioned, smartly kitted-out, well-marketed, value-for-money all-round product (if lacking in powertrain options) that's got its existing (& future) competitors very, very worried indeed. This product has the word "blockbuster" written all over it!

Topgear review:http://www.topgear.com/india/maruti-...ezza/itemid-51

Verdict
Be prepared to shell out more for a feature-rich experience if that is what you are looking for. But let it not be a deal-breaker because the Vitara Brezza is the most versatile SUV in its class right now.

EvoIndia review:

http://evoindia.com/blog/2016/03/10/...brezza-review/

Verdict:

What I really like about the Brezza though is its ‘made-in-India’ tag does not come with any compromises; you don’t have to make apologies or tolerate an unseemly rattle just because you’re buying Indian. Neither does the Brezza seem built to a price, which, let’s face it, it obviously is. The fit-finish and quality feels as good as any other Maruti Suzuki and that means you will be buying one of the most reliable and well-built products in this segment. Just goes to show that with the right leadership and a strong set of guidelines our Indian engineers can turn out cars that are on par with what global majors are offering – at even more competitive price points.

Spent quite a lot of time today reading through the reviews. I'm sure this is going to be another cracker from Maruti after the recent Baleno launch. I can even predict a lower waiting period for the Diesel Baleno because of this car. The ZDi+ is a little more costlier than the Baleno Alpha and comes with the DDIS200 engine. Plus, also gives the SUV feel to the owners. The interiors though similar to the other Maruti cars, look much more sorted out. With Maruti's wide showroom and service network, this car will sell like hot cakes. The exterior design continues to follow the 'PLEASE ALL OFFEND NONE' policy from Maruti. One grouse however is that long antenna on top of the car. It looks so much out of place. I was not expecting a shark fin from Maruti but they could have surely added the one from Swift/Dzire/Baleno.

Overall, the Vitara Brezza offers a very strong package with its combination of a good design, practical interiors, excellent equipment levels and aggressive pricing. It’s main competitors then, are going to be feeling a lot of heat from the Brezza as its deliveries start by the end of this month

Slightly OT Sirish sure has his way with the words. Something common among AJD and his team at OD.
About the car, all reviews do indicate a "solid effort though not best in class". Though Maruti may not need our endorsement to sell more cars. Such good reviews for a product coming from an in-house effort, sure does makes you proud. The comments about the interior plastics would be in obvious comparison to the sedans/premium hatches in the price segment, but doesn't the Duster have much less premium interiors at a much higher price.

Got a call from where I had made my booking- Rana Motors, Safdarjung, Delhi- the display model is up in the showroom. Apparently they had a bunch of people coming in today who were swarming all over it. I'll be down there tomorrow.

Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Garners 2600 Bookings in 24 Hours


Quote:
The sheer hype surrounding the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza wasn't surprising at all, but what has definitely managed to amaze us is the fact that the subcompact SUV has garnered a whopping 2600 bookings within 24 hours of launch. These are highly impressive numbers for Maruti's indigenously developed product and its success or failure can be called as the litmus test for the company's Indian R&D team behind the model.

The Maruti Vitara Brezza seems to be the ideal upgrade for the customer looking for an upgrade from the Swifts and Wagon R of the world. More so for those who do not want to leave the Indian manufacturer's comfort zone. With a promising start, the milestone marker for the Brezza seems to be closer than we thought.

Hi C'estlavie. Please take picture of the Brezza while you visit showroom. I really wanted to see a white color Brezza. Some one please post if you have it.

I went through all reviews.
Pros: Ride quality, looks, features
Cons: Steering feedback and a bit of body roll

Was I wrong to cancel S-Cross Zeta booking for Brezza ZDi. Price difference taken into consideration. Only a personal TD will tell.

In terms of looks, No. But in most other aspects, scross is in a class of its own. I am not sure how brezza will fare in those aspects compared to scross. As you mentioned, only a test drive will give the details. Can't completely believe these media reports other than Team-Bhp.
