Default Best OEM Alloys offered in cars <20 lakhs

I was just browsing some of the old BHP meet photos that I had attended and could not help but notice how the Indian Car industry has evolved.
If I remember correctly, less than a decade back when I bought my first car (Santro XO), getting Alloy wheels was a big add-on and snob value. And this was only because mine was a Limited Edition with added features, that even the fully loaded regular Xing did not have back then.

Today, the cut-throat competition has enabled the OEMs to dish out some gorgeous designs on the rims

Some of the sweet OEM Rims are:

Punto Abarth

Hyundai Verna

Some of the most pathetic designs are:

Suzuki S-Cross

Suzuki Swift

Suzuki Baleno

As I post this thread and we start the discussion, Suzuki have finally woken up and their S-Cross Facelift & Baleno RS are going to finally get some great rims. So I can only wonder how things are going to be in 10yrs from now.



P.S - @Mods either my search was pathetic or there was no topic like this on the forum. If it is the former, please merge this topic.

Ah ha BeantownThinker, see what miracles can do to mortals like me !!

I am so used to some boring/pathetic/repulsive designs by Maruti stable that even an amazing rendering on the Brezza, almost registers as a Hyundai creation.

No wonder, 3 out of 4 horrendous OEM rims (IMO) are from Maruti/Suzuki here.



@Mods - Please Edit/Correct the Hyundai Brezza caption.

My vote would be to the i20 and Verna. Hyundai certainly chooses its products, and the alloys for those products really well

Apart from these, I think the new Honda City is extremely boring too.

And the Punto Avventura alloys are awesome too !

Also, Hyundai Xcent is the new name, Mods please change Hyundai Accent to Xcent and save some confusion for fellow BHPians

The old Vento alloys were not too shabby either.

For me, it has always been those 2001-02 OHC VTEC alloys. Just love them!

Great thread after ages on team-bhp!
Here's my choices.

The first one is a car i've owned and LOVED the alloy wheel design. The Ford Fiesta 1.6S

The other one is a lovely design, on an otherwise lacklustre car. The Etios Liva Sportivo Edition

I like the grey one in the Ciaz. The way it bends inwards like the BMWs.
Was just drooling at one the other day in our office parking lot.

I really think Fiat got it right. The alloys on abarth punto stand out in a good way amongst so many. Seen one so far and never before had I taken couple steps back just to check out some alloys. They actually look bespoke.

Since folks are posting not in production cars, these alloys that the second gen Cedia came with were yummy!

These are my fav of this lot. The gun metal multi spokes look great on the Ciaz.

Misleading, not really sure swiftnfurious. Subjective, couldn't agree more

My idea was to actually understand how the competition and demand have enabled manufacturers in India to launch some truly Global cars.
The very thought of offering exclusive Rims on the Highest variants by the market leaders like Hyundai & Maruti speaks volumes, even when there cars command a huge waiting periods

Personally, I don't like the regular rims on Creta by Hyundai or the regular ones by Maruti on the Brezza.

The idea of me creating this topic was to really appreciate the efforts by these manufacturers by either offering an exclusive design on the Top-most/Optional variants, which was never heard of in India few years back.


Quote:
I am a bit surprised not to see the Ecosport alloy wheels. They do have certain flair to it. Another good looking OEM alloy wheels are those of the Fiesta 1.6S - those look HAWT!

Edit:: You'll see a lot more drool worthy designs if you go above the 20L bracket!
Yes, I actually have missed many more wonderful OEM offerings including the Ecosport, especially that stunning rims on the Black Edition.

Here are some more that I can think of which falls within the 20 Lakhs bracket for the starting variant. The reason I would like to add some of them here is because one can still source these OEM rims at an extra cost, even for the base model (if need be):

Ecosport Black Edition

The one on the Honda Mobilio is not really appealing to me personally, but I have had many people like this design as well:
