Default Re: Maruti Vitara Brezza : Official Review

Comparing Brezza with cars like Terrano and Creta which are priced about 50% more than Brezza is not fair anyway.

Ecosport and TUV300 are the only fair comparisons. The build quality is quite good when compared in this context.

Pune Prices for (top-1) variant from respective websites today:
Brezza - ZDi - 8.9 Lakh
Terrano - XVD - 14 Lakh
Creta - 1.6L CRDi VGT 6-Speed Manual SX+ 13.8 Lakh
Ecosport - Titanium TDCi - 9.7 Lakh
TUV 300 - T8 - mHawk - 9 Lakh

I have avoided comparing the top variants, since IMHO they contain many fluffy electronic features that don't contribute to build quality at all.

I own a Brezza ZDi for the past 6 months, and have had a problem free and rattle free experience over 5000 km. I am happy with the build quality of the product at this price point.

Default Re: Maruti Vitara Brezza : Official Review

I have been wondering which petrol engine Maruti would consider for Brezza. Will it be a 1L turbo petrol or 1.5L engine?


I have read news about Vitara Brezza likely to get a 1.5L petrol engine (Suzuki M15A) with 99bhp power and 133 Nm torque. Even though the power seems ok its torque seems pretty weak. Will this engine, if equipped, be able to provide enough grunt for a Brezza loaded with 5 people and luggage? Will this engine be good in the hills?


And if it is equipped with 1.0L turbo petrol can we expect decent mileage and power?

That is an average of 20,000 bookings per month! If there were no production constraint, it would have become the best seller in the country beating Alto!

Now, with Ignis in the market, some of the demand may redirect to it, IMO. Someone who wants an "SUV"ish (?) city car, has an option which is smaller than the Brezza.

This is the best time for Suzuki to bring the following, and capitalize on the SUV trend:

i. International 5-seater Vitara at around 8L for Petrol and 9L for Diesel. It can do what SCross was not able to do.
ii. A longer "Grand Vitara" (as seen in some earlier reports) with 7 seats - with a starting price of 9L for Petrol and 10L for Diesel.
iii. A 5-door 5-seater sub-4m modern Gypsy, at around 6L for Petrol and 7L for Diesel.
iv. Brezza Petrol at a starting price of 6L.

Indianised version of Jimny maybe. With 4WD at an affordable price could gain them decent volumes. Seems like a nice compact offroader from what I've seen.

Quiet clearly Price is the major contributing factor for such record sales of the Brezza, it is indeed a great achievement for MSIL to break-in to the segment with established players, especially EcoSport. Now the interiors accentuated with i-Create saves the ambiance in the cabin. My personal experience of the Brezza was a huge disappointment but specifically with regards to the Engine/Drive-train on offer. The Avventura is as far as any manufacturer can go with burdening this little otherwise brilliant MJD power-pack. It's performance however in the Brezza is underwhelming with persistent Turbo lag (Till 2000 rpm) & appalling NVH thereafter. IMO more than 50% of the booking with hop over to Petrol variant once launched, be it 1.5L M15A, 1.4L Dualjet or 1.0L Boosterjet.

It has been more than 10 months since the launch and I am still not able to get auto dimming IRVM from the dealership which has been listed as an accessory on official website since the announcement of the car.

I have contacted all the dealers in Ahmedabad. One dealer mentioned that they have the same for S-cross but not for Brezza.

Has anyone be able to get hold of auto dimming IRVM from Maruti Suzuki?

I have been owning brezza vdi(o) for the last 6 months. There are certain issues which are yet to be resolved by maruti.
1. Headlight beam flickering
2. Headlight fogging
3. MID (average fuel consumption) resetting automatically after every magical 415 kms
4. Struggling to open Fuel lid at one go

The rest of the rattles are standard. I need to get them done.

I have written to Maruti, however the least proactove measures have been taken at their end.

If anybody facing similar problem and how have these been solved.

I'm facing the same issue

& the most frustrating part is my own cousin who's works manager in Bimal Maruti Bangalore vehemently argues that it's normal, nothing to be worried about & claims that headlight fogging & condensation is normal even in upmarket luxury brands like the German Big 3


Experts, your take on this....?

That is a load of bull. Ask that manager to take a walk.

This is just to avoid warranty claims. Don't let them till a replacement is given.

If MASS says it is normal to have fog/condensation inside headlight, please show them the 2nd attachment in my post quoted here. (1st quote)

It is a comprehensive feedback form sent to me by Maruti Suzuki headquarters. If you look at the top right corner of the attachment there is a field Fog/condensation (X52) under 'Exterior Light Problem'. If Fog/condensation is normal, it must have NOT been mentioned in feedback form by Maruti Suzuki under 'Exterior Light Problem'

EDIT: Removed removed non-relevant content from quotes.

Quick Question: My friend recently bought a Brezza ZDi+. In the boot there are two compartments. The left one has a balloon like structure which made of soft rubber. Can anyone tell me what it is for?

A friend says that if the fuel is very low, it can be pressed a couple of times which forces fuel into the engine and the car can be driven for a couple of kilometers. Is that true?
