1) The 3 cylinder engine in those cars as I was replacing a beat diesel which had a 3 Cylinder engine and it sounded like a tractor after the first couple of years and these turbo petrols are yet to prove themselves too.

2) Resale Value - I don't keep a car for more than 7 years the Brezza is my 4th vehicle and I sold all 3 before it after 5-7 years so resale value is quite important for me, I brought an Alto Lxi in 2007 for 3.1 OTR and sold it for 1.75 in 2012 with 75k km on the odo, Beat LS Diesel was brought for 6L OTR in 2012 and got sold for 1.6L in 2020 with 85k km on odo so very bad resale value (took me 1 year to sell it for 1.6L too)


10k additional for OEM seat covers & mats which came with 1 year warranty so effectively 12.13L.
Great buy. Congratulations for the beautiful ride. All the cars in this segment are equally good, each having their own USP. I found that only the Brezza and EcoSport provies that commanding driving feel in this segment only(XUV 300 too, but a tad less). Having said that all these are fantastic cars and you can't go wrong with any of these CSUVs. Also, that red color

I recently got myself an EcoSport S TDCi BS6, with zero dep insurance and 5 year extended warranty for a similar price as you paid(paid Rs. 27 thousand extra than your final OTR price to be precise).

Read your review, but what I understand is the dragon 1.5 engine in the EcoSport petrol is a NA engine and not a turbo 3 cylinder. However, it surely has some great mid range punch, so one might mistake it for a turbo. Or am I wrong and you actually drove the EcoBoost turbo?

Thank you Ron82x3,

Your Ecosport looks awesome, I was skeptical on the concept of 3 cylinders itself after a bad experience with Beat D's 3 cylinder and also the Rear seat leg and shoulder room in the Brezza was a little more than the ecosport,one more reason was FE claimed by company 17 for Brezza versus 15.9 for Ecosport,Future Resale Value also pulled be towards the Brezza.

If I was looking for a Diesel then my only choice would have been the ecosport but I was very keen on petrol only.

I was wondering if the mileage claimed by Maruti is just a gimmick or it actually gives the said mileage. How much actual mileage is this car giving to the users? I have seen videos on youtube where people have claimed a mileage of even 18 on highways from this car and some people saying it's giving mileage as low as 8 in the city.

I am getting an FE between 13-14 KMPL in Hyderabad City Driving Conditions and upto 16 on Highways, Do note that I have a Manual Transmission Brezza so the FE depends on the driving style too.

Wow that FE is actually a surprise. Given that it doesn't have smart hybrid and a rated FE of 17kmpl for the manual variant.

FE also depends on the driver specifically in Manuals,Use of clutch,control of acceleration as well as knowing the right time to shift gears,Do note that FE also takes a hit if you are waiting idle with Engine switched on & AC running for a considerable amount of time.

Yes of course. I was thinking more from cars perspective rather than how it's driven.

Can anybody tell me at what rpm the engine runs at 100kph/120kph in 5th gear? In the sCross review i think it says 3000rpm at 100kph which seems high. Is it the same case with the Brezza?

Even after some years have passed, I still quite like the Brezza's boxy looks. Quite proportionate IMHO.

Maruti spoiled it for me by discontinuing the diesel engines, and just plonking in the K15B petrol. I somehow cannot digest this fact and swayed away from it when I was looking to make a car purchase in this segment a couple of months back.

Having praised its looks and all, something needs to be done about the hideous grill, if you ask me.

Last month, I have bought myself a Venue SX 1.5 Diesel MT for exactly INR 936/- additional. This is after ZERO discounts.
I know I does not come with LED headlamps and all, but honestly, I'm not a big fan of LED headlamps anyways.

The sales advisor mentioned that new Brezza comes with green tinted glasses for all the 4 windows just like Baleno. Anyone aware of it?

It's simple green tinted glass which even AC version of Maruti 800 got. Baleno has UV cut glass, which no other Maruti gets.
