I am a firm believer of run in period and i am following what bhp folks have recommended.

An then there is one idling rule also for Diesel cars, which states that before driving a diesel car one should idle the car for few minutes daily. This helps the Turbo and the Engine in the long run. Let us follow what the experts tell us till we become expert our self.

Regarding overtaking during run in period, yes it is not very easy and i am avoiding difficult maneuvers. However i have overtaken few on the highway with out raising the voice of the RPM meter. Actually once people see the car in rear view mirror some let you pass and enjoy seeing the car from all possible angles.

Jitters and pangs you are getting due to negative feedback on the forum are going to vanish one you drive your own car.

If we assume 500 Gypsy, 2500 SCross and 5000 Ertigas, the sales numbers of Brezza stands at around 6K. Decent opening, IMO.
You are very close to the estimated numbers, seems 5500 cars were dispatched in March.

Bookings now cross 40,000 numbers!

I saw a VDI Brezza at MS showroom and honestly thought the interior quality (dash etc) looked very ordinary, both in look and quality. Even the slightly cheaper Baleno (from my recollection) looked much better and richer.

I think if Tata can produce some magic from the Nexon and get customer acceptance, it'll make a very credible competitor to the Brezzas and Ecosports. Basically high quality interiors, solid engine options, AMT options in diesel and petrol. All these could really create valuable differentiators.

Heard a lot like this when Zest and Bolt are launched. Even if the company delivered on these areas, did the customers "deliver" as promised like above?

The car buying public in India are more Intelligent are what we perceive them to be. They look for more than average After Sales Service and Reliability to go with the average interiors that come with the car. It is this part which Tata should hope to address. Maruti and Honda can always get away with drab interiors on the basis of consistent performance in After Sales and Reliability.

Had my first encounter with Brezza today. I was driving towards Jawahar circle from world trade park(Jaipur) when I noticed this white-yellow combination. Accelerated a little and caught with it.
Honestly, reading previous posts I was expecting a bigger looking vehicle. It looked like a hatch from a distance. As I drove parallel noticed that the guy driving the Brezza was sitting quite lower than me (I was driving Freelander2). The Brezza driver seemed a happy guy as he gave me a big ear to ear smile.
To make things interesting A white Creta joined us. Driving parallel to Brezza made up for a nice size comparison.
Brezza sits lower than Creta, just a little lower. Those mighty wide tyres definitely enhance the looks. Attaching pics. The Maruti Vitara Brezza @ Auto Expo 2016-img_3463.jpg

Eagerly waiting for the daytime pics. Night time pics in low light just don't do justice to the beauty of the white brezza. Not to put pressure on you, but I'm going to finalize whether to change the color of my booking on the basis of your pics



Happy driving !

Sorry could not get time to shoot better pics. Looks good IMHO

Is the quality really cheap, or is it just visually cheap because of the weird pattern??

Well Dashboard plastic quality of Breeza is not upmarket but it is not cheap for sure. Maruti has borrowed a lot from existing cars and this could be the reason for people finding the plastics not up to the mark.

If you look closely you can see that there are different design elements on steering wheel, dashboard, door panels, AC vents etc. More than 3 type of plastic elements are involved to break monotony from scratchy to plain to grainy.

However I am sure plastic quality is not as good as you may find in Ecosport and Creta but then if Maruti had jacked up price by another 50K for high quality plastics we may have not found the car to be VFM.

Honestly, given how much cutting corners Hyundai has done on the Creta, what the Brezza gives for a substantially lesser amount of money will be a very strong pull towards the latter. Product launches like Brezza and price cuts on products like the Ecosport really make the Creta's price seem more and more unsustainable (in theory at least).

Awesome ! Love the looks. I'm sticking to white. The contrast that white brings in with the black floating roof, give it a very classy look.

Thanks a ton for sharing the pics

New seat covers installed at the dealership. These were the best ones i could get at the dealer. Overall fitted well but the hook part behind the driver isnt aligned properly. I told them to do the correction. I guess it wont be as tight as factory fit.

9300/- including labour

I had not paid attention to the key when I saw the Brezza display car inside the showroom.
That key looks exactly like the ones for the Wagon R
Not sure why they went with this version, looks and feels quite cheap!

Display cars won't have keys
Just to avoid customers who'd like to crank the engine inside a showroom

By the way the tbhp review is long overdue
Any news on that front Mods
