Default The Brochure Corner! Attach discontinued car brochures here

Hello everyone,

Myself being a petrolhead since childhood, always had a hobby of collecting car brochures whenever we visit a car dealership. Later, I moved on to PDF brochure collection when it became difficult for me to store and preserve those hardcopy brochures.

Started in 2009, I currently have about 2.5GB of PDF brochures in my external hard disk. Though I was a kid back then, I used to search in the web and download those brochures. My collection includes the following kind of leaflets :
1. Almost all Indian car brochures
2. Export Spec version brochures of Indian cars
3. Brochures from other markets like US, UK, Thailand and Indonesia.
4. Vintage car brochures (post-1980)

With this thread, the real aim of mine is to help those people who are in search for used cars. If they get the original brochure of the model which they are searching for, they will be able to learn more about specs and variant-wise features of that model. Also, this will be a great boon for those collectors like me.

So, I request you people to post the brochures that you have either in original form or as scanned brochure in PDF format.

To start with, I am attaching the following PDF brochures here from my own collection :
1. Maruti 800 (1995 facelift)
2. Renault Logan LPG
3. Renault Logan
4. Honda Civic 8th gen (2010 facelift)
5. Ford Ikon NXT
6. Skoda Laura vRS

Lovely, thanks for sharing! This 800 facelift was our first car and I still remember the pic on the brochure like it was yesterday! Looking at it now, the equipment list described is nothing short of l-o-l.

So these are a few photos of a 1992/93/94 Maruti 1000 brochure. Most of what the brochure claims to be ‘features’ are standard equipment we cannot imagine cars to be devoid of like lockable fuel lid, sunvisors, floor and trunk carpet.

Will soon upload of a 96/97 Esteem LX VX and a Viva CRDi.

Maruti Esteem LX VX brochure. I have two apprehensions about the same.

1.) Why isn’t there no mentioning of the power steering in the VX trim? We owned a ‘97 VX which had a PS.

2.) The blue colour mentioned is ‘Ocean Dark Blue’ which instead was called Ionian Blue (clearly remember from my car’s RC.) The Ocean Dark Blue instead was a dark purple shade available in early Zen’s.

Also, a few pics of 1996/97 Maruti 1000 brochure.

Do you guys have the following brochures:
1. Skoda Laura (2006-2009)
2. Maruti Esteem (1997-2004)
3. Maruti Zen (1998-2003)
4. Opel Astra
5. Opel Corsa

If yes, can you please post them here as PDF scans? Actually, these are the cars about which people don't have much idea related to their specifications and features.


Now, it is time to add the brochures of some now rare sedans.

Let's keep this thread for sharing brochures of old & discontinued cars only. Team-BHP Reviews now anyway include brochures of the new cars.

@ Mukesh: please share all such brochures. Thanks!

When me & my brothers took my Esteem VX for its first drive, we marvelled at how the wipers & washers worked. Coming from a 118 NE & Premier 137 D, we were amazed at their smoothness and clean sweep .

Was introduced later. My '96 Esteem VX didn't have power steering. I also felt bad about missing out on the black colour they introduced later.

Attaching 3 brochures of discontinued cars.
