Congrats on your car! It's a good dark shade closest to black! However, try considering a few photoshopped photos with different shades for roof. I have not seen a grey in flesh, but chances are white might not get along that well if the grey is on the brighter side. IMHO you should check out the various options on the computer before directly getting the mod done.

But I would prefer a wrap over the paint job. I believe the dealers (most of them) will be incompetent of giving a good paint finish on the roof top. We can pick out the specialised people for the custom paint job, which would run over 15-16 grand easily. My pick would be a wrap with different finish than a glossy one. Matt wouldn't go along the glossy red so probably a carbon fibre finished wrap. 3M one's for carbon finish one's cost around 400-500 Rs/sqft so they might end up north of 13K for brezza. MSIL should have offered dual tone at least for zdi if not for all the variants!

Saw 2 Brezzas on the road this week. Both single tone - granite grey and white. Have to say wasn't too impressed. Looked smaller than I thought from pics and road presence wasn't great (have to accept its a sub-4 metre car in the end). But overall the looks are sharp and clean and will be a hit for sure. I am sure dual tone ones would look much better. Maruti should've given dual tone options for all variants, that's the true differentiating factor for the Brezza. Otherwise lower variants aren't really VFM.

There has been lot of action while i was away on a weekend trip, Few hot discussions and one accident.I am happy peace prevailed and thank God
for safety of all. I am still to drive the car above 60 Kmph and would be cautious on highways.

Went to a nearby destination for weekend holiday and we took a deliberate detour. En-route we crossed few dirt roads just to feel the drive.
Yes i was satisfied with the ride and so were all the occupants in the car. The car was soaked in dust and the suspension soaked the bumps quite well.

I have also crossed this road in my Ritz and this time in Vitara i felt more confident more so even with few considerably bad patches courtesy culvert cleaning and drain work in progress. My cousin who Drives a Koleos was of the opinion that rear seat is comfortable and space is class leading.While we were enjoying the views we were wondering what is more important, GC or the size of the tyres. I think it is the size of the Tyre which is more important along decent Ground Clearance to make the car feel planted and settled firmly on uneven surface.

By the way there was one old model Maruti(Suzuki 84 Model) which honked me till i let her pass. The guy in the car seems impatient and gave me a very disgruntled look for not letting him pass.
Now I wonder,as romeomidhun said in one of his earlier posts :-
"You call a vehicle as "SUV" if it satisfies your SUV needs".

Here are few pictures which we clicked on Selfie pit stop.

Does anyone here think the vitara brezza looks a little too plasticky? To me it seems as though the material inside the car is very flimsy. Compare this to the Creta or EcoSport and you just don't have a match. Anyone who echoes my feelings?

Yesterday, I saw couple of Brezza on road, to be honest, it did not appeal me. I felt EcoSports or even TUV300 has better presence, or may be I was expecting too much. It doesn't come up, as you see in pictures, in reality.

@mountaineer The car looks stunning in the pics. I am in two minds for Brezza. If its not Brezza then it would be either a Ciaz/City. Most of my drives are of short distances and within the city. But I have always avoided long drive trips cause of Swift(Boot space and Safety). Hopefully Breeza satisfies those needs.

I don't know if i can compare Brezza with Honda City, but frankly speaking the type of Comfort (Drive and ride) Honda City can give is unmatched.
Brezza is more like a big hatchback which is having stance of a SUV and can do well in basic off-roads.

Regarding Space and Boot as compared with Swift, you will find it much more comfortable for a family and can easily seat 3 in the back bench on those long trips.
Safety is a very vast subject and individual observation and requirement may differ.Car has all the safety kits installed and i feel it is as safe as any other car in this price point.

Though, strictly for long highway trips my pick would be a Honda City.

27 weeks thats too long a wait. The dealer claims the car has come to the stockyard but I can see it only once my loan is approved. Wondering if that's how it works.

Shock to see pathetic workmanship of the car close to million rupees. Looks like hand painted panels. Note that bolt head is also got the paint.

@Dr. Naren - The dealer is quoting is 12-14k for the paint job so I am okay with the 3M pricing if its 8-10k.

@Bhansali - Thanks. I know maybe white is too much of a contrast but cant figure which other color suits best.

Maybe it's true because 24 hours after I booked, maruti sent me sms directly confirming my booking & gave me a booking ID something like this SOBXXXXXXX
I can probably vouch for that, I had booked my Brezza Red Black combo in Patham Motors Queens road showroom the very first day bookings opened.
They mentioned the same thing that Maruti directly allots cars. Last week when I enquired, they mentioned that it is in transit and when I went to the showroom, they showed me a list of vehicles in transit with customer names already alloted again each car.

Looks like MSIL is keeping track of deliveries based on booking dates and not giving complete control to the dealerships which I believe is a good thing.

For 3M wrap on Vitara Brezza's roof top in either Black or White ( Gloss finish) will cost you ~ 13k INR. In matte finish it would cost ~ 10k INR

Default Re: Maruti Vitara Brezza : Official Review

Last weekend I got a chance to check and test drive Brezza as I tagged along with my friend who is in the market for a new car.

We decided to visit Suraksha, Electronic City.

Here are the few things which I observed,
  • I was impressed with the driver seat view. When on the road you really get a feel of an SUV and bonnet is clearly visible as well
  • Loads of head room even if you increase the height of the seat to max.(I am 5’10)
  • NVH is very well managed. And I feel, 100-110 will be the sweet spot on the highway.
  • Smooth clutch and gear movements
  • It was quick to 100 and very well planted even while doing some quick lane changes. Probably the bigger tires are helping here. As few have already mentioned, these 16 inch rim and 215 tires really enhances the look of the car as well. And braking was good too.
  • We took it to some real bad roads, and I felt that this car handled it really well. There was one pot hole which was sharp, it gave a thud sound, firm suspension may be. I couldn't find a similar pothole again. But overall, it handled well on bad roads.
  • Very spacious inside, especially the rear seat space. But I was not happy with the under thigh support in the rear seat, I felt the same in Ciaz as well. My friend was happy though with the under thigh support.
  • Ingress/Egress was very convenient
  • It was really good to see the spare wheel comes with the same size even though without alloys.(I have seen top end Vento and Sunny with smaller tire size for spare wheels).
  • Decent boot size and can be increased if you remove the tray
  • USB port and AUX were positioned conveniently, especially when compared to my Linea which has it inside the glove box.
  • Multiple options for storage, I loved it, especially the bottle holders on all the doors. It’s a pain to carry bottles in my linea because of NO bottle holders.
  • AC was very chilling and the fan speed was not noisy even when the temperature was set at 18 degrees. Outside temperature should have been around 35 or above
  • You get 5 colour option for the analogue dials (tachometer & speedometer), this is a nice feature and easy to handle this setting.
  • I was not really comfortable with IRVM and the rear view. It will require some time to get used/adjusted to.
  • They could have offered leather seating on the dual tone models at least.

Overall, for a first time buyer or for someone who is coming from a lower segment, this car for sure has a lot to offer. Even comparing with a Swift, this car comes with loads of feature, space, along with very good ground clearance, wide and bigger tires, SUV’ish feel etc.

Regarding the dual tone colour, what a master stroke from Maruti! At this dealership, around 80% bookings are for top end dual tone. If this is true then I am not sure when a top end model had such a demand in Maruti stable.

And finally when I told my friend that we can check-out Ecosport as well, he said I am booking brezza. Yes, he has already done enough research and checked out Ecosport as well and said, Brezza is the one for him. He is not a teambhpian yet, but he has reviewed all the information/feedback about both Brezza and Ecosport here. He has also taken feedback from his other friends who own Ecosport and Figo.

He went ahead and booked a red dual tone Brezza and now the toughest part has begun for him, the waiting.

This is my first visit to Suraksha, I was impressed.

This was the car at the display,

This is the test drive car with around 2500Km in the ODO, they have also fitted it with some extra accessories and some stickering job..

Super pics. The red-black combination is so good, IMO. The third one is my wallpaper as of now!

Maruti should introduce the blue-black and yellow-black combination as well.

What is the water wading capability of Brezza? Did not find it mentioned anywhere.
