Thanks a lot for your detailed explanation dude. However, in my perspective, If I am looking for a compact SUV (in this case, Its Brezza), I would basically compare it with its competitors like Ecosport, Avventura, i20 Active. I would never compare it with a "different segment car with an 800cc engine" whether its styling & presence is great or not. I understand that you are giving your feedback from a neutral and un-biased perspective by comparing these two cars from two different segments to help prospective buyers in making their decisions. However, Its difficult for me to accept that people who think about a compact SUV segment car would look at the styling & presence of a completely different segment car for comparison, be it a small hatch back or a luxury hatch back or even a sedan. Again, Its all people's perspective. Your perspective could be different from my perspective

To be honest, with respect to coming to a decision with the limited knowledge I have, one can never decide on something if we start comparing the virtues of one vehicle with a different class vehicle. I am happy that I have made a choice of the vehicle, not because the high standards I believe the vehicle has, But because it suits my demands within the budget I have.

Try pairing non-Android device too, if possible.
So, I've been able to make out a pattern now. The whole thing (making calls using off hook button) works only when the vehicle is stationary. Perhaps this is not a bug, but a feature to prevent users from getting distracted while searching the caller name in the display panel? Or this is a configurable option, where I can change whether I want to enable calling while the vehicle is moving? Has anybody figured this out?
Receiving calls functionality works just fine, irrespective of whether the vehicle is stationary or moving.

Got a call from my SA yesterday and told that a red ZDi has come in and if you want we can deliver it to you, however it has the Glamour kit. He mentioned that all cars are compulsorily being delivered with some of the kits.

Plainly denied as I have seen the kits and not in favor of them. He said the car will then come as per schedule by Sep-Oct. Told him I am ok with that.

Anyone heard any story on the kit.

On the other hand, owner being dad's friend told him that we do not want the kit. Car should be home next month.

This trick is implemented by dealers to take benefit of the long waiting list, and earn additional benefits while forcing you to take the accessories. Maruti is strictly against such policies.

Back in 2012 when the Swift had a long waiting period, the dealer was forcing my colleague to buy a ZDi with useless accessories worth 60k thrown in. That was the only way of getting faster delivery. We asked for written document stating that this is the manufacturer's policy-they declined it. We then recorded the conversation, mailed it to MSIL, and even if we were supposed to wait for some months, Maruti ensured that the dealer gave us that car-without any unwanted accessories. We were told that the dealership was even penalised by MSIL.

So never fall for such malpractices. Today, its a buyer's market and is no longer the monopoly of a brand or a dealer.

Regards,
Shashi

Received my Brezza ZDI+ Dual Tone (Red & Black) on 7th July '16. Booked on 24th April '16

So far so good! Lovely vehicle. Sharing some pics. Will be uploading a full initial ownership review very soon. All pics clicked from S7 Edge

Doesnt look like a Sub 4m car

No reports on fuel consumption. Havent driven much. Will be going for a 200+ km roadtrip this weekend. Will share the results. Suspension is firm. Instantly noticeable when coming from a Vento. Smartplay infotainment works wonderfully well. Voice commands is a nice touch!

Tried to connect my S7 edge with Mirrorlink. Doesnt seem to work. The phone switches on to Mirrorlink mode as soon as I connect via usb but nothing is displayed on the MMI screen. Searched on a few forums. Same thing is happening to others. Will try to connect iPhone and then try Apple Car Play

I went to Maruti dealership to check out delivery status of the Celerio that I had booked for my dad.

Brezza looked chic. But comparing to my ciaz, the brezza interiors felt cramped. I guess it is the norm of the segment. IMO they should have priced it at least 40k lesser.

Did not get time to update here. I had the dealer replaced the faulty fog lamps which were broken / cracked while I went for my first service / inspection couple of weeks back.

They did not charge anything for that. It is too early to comment if they have rectified the root-cause. I am yet to go for a long highway drive. Last time I noticed the issue with lamps after returning from a long drive mostly 80 kmph.

The SA was telling there were around 4 to 5 cases reported till then with the dealership with similar problem. (Bimal, Mdvpra, BLR). We cannot rely that number, but feels it is a more wide spread issue.

Owners may check for similar problem in your car. It is not very obvious on a regular checking.

Congrats on the new purchase, you will enjoy driving it too.

The Bull horn LEDs are not bright enough to be used as a DRL. It is visible towards the evening after the sun sets or in the night when it is complete dark. But then, since the head light is switched on by then, the Bull Horn will not be giving any impact during night. i hope they give a brighter LED, it would have been better in that case.

True that, however when brezza was launched, ecosport was at least 80 grand higher than the launch price of brezza! MSIL undercut them, by huge margin and now the reason for them to not hike the price is the same.

Delivered within 2.5 months against 6 months from the date of booking!! That's cool!
I somehow feel the waiting periods for Brezza and Baleno are jacked up unlike the waiting periods for the Swift years back.

Dad took the car out last Sunday early morning to a temple, there was some construction going on in the parking area. I still don't understand fully what happened but unfortunately the right rear fender lining is missing from the car. Something somehow got stuck in there and the fender lining was torn to pieces. I called up all the three big service centres here in Noida but none have it in stock. I have placed an order for the same. Should arrive in next 7 days. Also had taken the car to the service centre and they have checked for any other damages but thankfully only fender lining was torn. Cost of the same is Rs 850.

Also got the arm rest fitted but as luck would have it there is a small tear in leather on top of the arm rest. Showed it to the dealer from where it was fitted and they did promise me that the same would be changed when I come for fender lining as they didn't have another piece in stock.
