Just read a Tweet by Sirish Chandran regarding the Maruti Suzuki Desert Storm and he says that a 4WD Brezza is taking part alongwith an All-Wheel-Drive S-Cross!

The S-Cross is an Euro-Spec model going by pictures. You can notice a lot of dials and buttons, like the Dual zone ACC, km/h and mph combo speedometer, cruise control with limit button and the AllGrip toggle near the handbrake.

The retractable mirrors only come with the ZDI+ which is surprising for a fairly wide car. Can they be retro fitted on the lower versions e.g. VDI? Power folding mirrors are a boon in narrow streets in cities like Mumbai. Has anyone done this modification?

News Link from 2016 : https://indianautosblog.com/2016/04/...t-storm-227407

This year also MS Brezza is participating in Desert Strom along with MS S-cross. However, there is no mention of them being a 4WD.

The list of competitors of Extreme Category says there are four teams from Maruti Suzuki. Team 101 is Suresh Rana with MS Grand Vitara, Team 109 is Sandeep Sharma with MS S-cross. Other two teams (110 & 118) are with 4WD>1350 CC. Team 110 and 118 could be MS Vitara Brezza.

It was clarified by Sirish Chandran that the Brezza is indeed a 4WD.

Here are some pics of MS Vitara Brezza, participating in Desert Storm 2018. Front fenders are missing. Is it removed to accommodate a 4WD fuse block?

However, I have got used to it and never actually bothered to take it up with MASS.
This is due to the lack of way for air to escape from the cabin. It is air-tight indeed. I can hear a sound of air gushing out somewhere from the rear hatch area. You can close the same door with much lesser effort when the window glass is slightly lowered. From inside, the placement of door handle makes things even difficult.
This is due to the design of the door as well, as the closing action pushes the air inside. especially the front doors. Rear doors close a bit more easily (due to lesser area + shape maybe.)

Really? After how many kilometers? Does suspension have break in time like engine? Anyone else felt the same?

I am also thinking to buy an alloy rim for my spare tyre and was sceptical about accommodating it in spare tyre's space. If possible, can you share a photograph of it?

The alloy wheel sits perfectly into the slot for the spare wheel. There is no change in the depth of the boot nor does the board rattle. The styrofoam box sits perfectly snug into the slot. The plastic nut holding the wheel tightens without any issue. Basically, MSIL has done simple cost cutting which at the end wouldn't have mattered much for a buyer.

Thank you very much, Bonecollector sir for these Photographs. I have just ordered Alloy Rim for my MS Brezza. The dealer in my hometown doesn't have this alloy rim in stock.

Today, I gave my MS Vitara Brezza for the third service. I asked the Service Advisor about Synthetic oil and he casually replied that all engine oils are same. I had to go to Workshop manager. As per him, he heard somewhere about this synthetic oil but don't know much about it. I specifically asked for Synthetic oil 0W-40. Workshop Manager was trying to pitch me 5W-30 semi-synthetic oil. Fortunately, Spare parts store manager was aware of 0W-40 and assured me that he"ll arrange it from their warehouse. He added that very few customers ask for synthetic oil.

At 1600, Workshop Manager informed me that they don't have synthetic or semi-synthetic oil in stock. I didn't have time to buy it from the market so gave go-ahead for 5w-30. It was my third service ( at 10,000Km) but keeping upcoming summer in mind, I changed the coolant also. Wheel alignment, wheel balancing and Wheel rotation were done at Mahindra First Choice ( free under the yearly plan).

Toral Charge for the third service: 3378
Invoice of Third Service:

What is the waiting period for the Brezza currently? Has Maruti been able to bring it down or is it still 5 to 6 months?

If you ask me, it’s just a worst timing estimate any company or the dealer would give to their customer to be on the safer side to avoid any derogatory comments that would be passed if they give unrealistic timing of delivery because of over shooting the deadline. But, they’ll ensure to deliver within 2-4 months from the time of booking. My personal experience as well - I got mine in less than 3 months from the date of booking whilst the sales rep had advised me of keeping the timeless of upto six months
