Can't agree with this more. I think that a slightly higher profile tyre would look better than the stock 215/60 on the Brezza. However, seeing how he was going for the Evoque look, the wheels aren't a bad choice.

At least the Landwind got the detailing right. This has way too much red splashed around.

Yeah. The skid plates at least should have been left alone, and the rear number plate show should have been silver.

Get that horrible car dealer sticker off, spoils the look.

The rear wash wipe coupled with defogger really helps, especially at places, which sees lots of rains, coupled with highway driving. In 5 minutes on a highway in rains, your rear windshield gets dirty and if there is a bit of mud etc on the road, it simply obstructs your vision.

^^Plan for that drive, rope in doc.

And that red modded Brezza, what is with studs on wheel arches?

Hi,
I am planning to go for Vitara Brezza Zdi. I have gone through the brochure and even took a test drive(Zdi+) and the vehicle has been really nice. I have some questions regarding these 2 variants.

1) In Zdi, there is no front sliding arm rest along with storage box. Does it mean that it wont have rear AC vents too since all these are housed at the same location ?
2) The cost(Ex-Showroom) difference between Zdi and Zdi+ is more than 1 Lakh. Is it really worth to pay that additional 1 Lakh for just Push start, Cruise Control, Touch Screen with Navigation, Tweeters, Front center arm rest, Electrically folding mirror, Cooled upper glovebox?

Thanks in Advance

That sticker is just not coming out. Its separate alphabets, I need to use a blade to remove it. I have not spoken to Doc for quite some time. I will be busy till end June, then we can plan.

Had gone for 1st service of Brezza, and work took about 3 hrs. Took a look underneath as I wanted anti rust coating and noticed a few things.

1. I found that only center part with the silencer pipe running through, and a small area behind is exposed metal but rest is all covered by fiber (black on sides). The service center guys were not confident removing and reattaching it so I asked them not to go ahead with it.

2. The center well looks deep enough to house an AWD system. Experts, is it so?

3. If there is so much space in the well, why have they not fitted the silencer there? One thing that comes to my mind is that a silencer would reduce the ground clearance if located in that well.

Peel off a little bit from the side & then use WD40 to gently peel the remaining off. I hate it when dealers slap on their stickers on a car.

Try using cellotape. Use 1 inch or 2 inch wide good quality cellotape to cover the entire sticker, press down on the logo to attach it to the tape and it should peel off along with the cellotape. You can also use the defogger to heat up the glass around the logo and see if it comes off easier. Or, use a hair dryer to heat the logo specifically. It should peel right off. Some solvent might be needed to remove the glue.

Can't wait for your ownership thread to start!!

I'm no expert, but it seems you're right. Since the Brezza is based on the global Vitara platform, it is logical that the floorpan would be able to accomodate an AWD system. I am doubtful about it MSIL ever offering it here though.

Since they already reached the required ground clearance, it might be more economical from a manufacturing perspective, to save on additional heat/sound insulation that would be required if the exhaust pipe were that close to the underbody. As it is, it seems that they have used the middle tunnel to route the exhaust, while keeping clearance from the body itself.

Dont use any blade or sharp things on it. Just visit a sticker stop and they will do it in 2 mins time.

I remember seeing a youtube video where you a) put a newspaper on top of the sticker b) pour water on the newspaper, and keep it there for a while - this helps the sticker absorb the water c) after some time, just scrape the sticker with your fingers/nails

When I asked the folks at 3M for underbody protection for Brezza, they said that it already comes with plastic cladding, hence they don't provide underbody protection for brezza. The service guys, did try to sell me the underbody protection along with some sort of lamination on all the engine parts - I wasn't sure about lamination and feared it might prevent the heat from escaping off the surface, so refused it.

IMO, the stock tyres in top end Brezza are good enough. Bigger ones will be an over-kill a it is a sub-4m car.

I personally feel a 17 inch wheel will just look great to give the car a real SUV look, 215/60/17 but the speed error can definetly be a worry. Is there any way to calibrate the meters and correct it if one goes for such an upsize?

1) None of the Brezza variants have rear ac vents.

2) It all depends on what all features YOU want there to be in the car. As for me, I have booked the Zdi+ variant because I plan to keep the car for at least 7-8 years and all these features that you have mentioned will become standard in mid-variants in the next few years. Four years down the line, I don't want to get the feeling of driving an outdated car.

Having said that Maruti have seriously deliberately chose to not keep the Vdi and Zdi variants feature rich in order to push people towards Zdi+. Just yesterday a friend bought an Ertiga Vxi and I was surprised to see auto-folding mirrors, bluetooth telephony and rear ac in the mid variant.

I would suggest you to go for the Zdi+.

Cheers!

I finally got the front Armrest fitted. Took about half an hour as a new jobcard had to opened.

Had mailed to Maruti twice before I got a reply to get them the accessories available at the dealerships.


They have replaced the rear bottom plastic part behind the cupholders.

Costed 3090. Is worth the price.

Will post the pics in the morning.

The armrest is same as on Zdi+. With the sliding top.

Somebody give me an insider information that Brezza AMT is coming. I'm hopelessly waiting for a diesel automatic mini-SUV as a city run-about car. This car will hardly see highways, except for edge of the city family farmhouse 3/4 times a year. The wait is killing me. I just have to pick one out of Brezza AMT and Nexon AMT, assuming Tata ever launches it. They say we are spoilt for choice. Really? Right now there are only two available--Duster AMT and Creta AT. I wouldn't touch Duster in 2016, no matter how good. Ecosport, yes, if they had an AT with diesel. Creta? Naaaw! Not at this price. So, someone please tell me Brezza AMT is coming.

I had commented about this sticker thing about a month back. Inform your dealers in advance about this. They put those huge stickers on the cars mostly on glass surfaces. Someone had even got a car with stickers on headlights. Something which was a trend two decades ago but now it interferes with functionality and aesthetics.

Even I got the armrest at the same price. However, Maruti charged Rs 500 for installation which I found pretty high for a two-screw job. Where you charged anything for installation, and if yes, how much?

Nope the price of 3090 was all inclusive of fitting and taxes.

This was done at Rohan Motors Noida.
