Maruti Suzuki Brezza - Almost The perfect car

Maruti is not necessarily known for its engineering prowess. The Vitara Brezza is the exception to that rule. Unveiled at the 2016 Auto Expo, it was Maruti's entry into the sub-compact SUV segment and has since then only helped strengthen the Maruti Suzuki name.

Ownership Since - August 17, 2017. It was a birthday gift that he presented himself with. The waiting period was two months. But it was worth the wait for him as what would follow were a dozen road trips, longest one being to Spiti (15,000Km).

Servicing

Number Of Services done- 4 till date. 3 free services and one paid.


Service Experience - A dismal service experience has made Nitin upset. The customer service standard is extremely bad at Maruti, according to him. Both at the showroom and at the service centres.

The service providers refuse the customers the bare minimum professionalism that is expected from the largest car maker of the country.

Their sales pitch is almost non-existent and the salesmen are not typically with in depth knowledge about cars.

At the service centers, the customers need to run after the service guys to get the job done. No one makes the effort to ask about the car's problems.

But yes, he hasn't had to incur any unreasonable fees till now from his total of 4 services.


Previous Car Owned


The family owns two cars, they are Honda City and Chevrolet Beat. The Maruti Suzuki Brezza replaced the Chevrolet Beat, which is as light and easy to drive like the Beat. The reason for upgrading to a Compact SUV was the uneven and unpredictable nature for Indian roads, which mostly have their fair share of potholes and bumps. A SUV as per him was a perfect solution to this.

Buying Process - After deciding on a sub-compact SUV, Nitin started exploring options but the Brezza was never in his list because of Maruti's poor build quality that he was wary of. It was only after he happened to drive his cousin's Brezza, that he decided to take this car seriously. The drive was easy and relaxing, especially in the city traffic. The clutch, the gear-shifting etc seemed smooth and he ended up having a great drive.

Other Cars Considered

FORD ECOSPORT - Though keen on the Ecosport, Nitin soon found the drive quality to not be as smooth as that in the Brezza. The drive was hard, with considerable experience required to control the heavy beast of a car that Ecosport is. The clutch and gear shifting were hard to the hand and not very smooth. Overall , it felt a rough ride and the any driver would get fatigued after a while at the wheels. Plus, it was nowhere as spacious as the Brezza with limited leg-space and head space. It felt awkwardly cramped.

What I love about my Maruti Suzuki Brezza
 

    Maruti suzuki Vitara Brezza vdi AMT - Engine

Engine - The Brezza fares pretty well in performance in spite of the fact that it is endowed with a small engine. Nitin thinks that this 1.6 L 1248 cc engine that the Maruti Swift also has provides the Brezza with great performance inspite of its limited power.

Even with a smaller engine, the Brezza owner never regrets his choice of car.

The engine manages 200Nm torque from as low as 1750 rpm.


    Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza VDI AMT - A/c

AC- The AC goes through maintenance at regular intervals and as such is yet to give any problem. The cooling was decent and uniform - from every possible corner of the car. It has managed to keep the occupants comfortable in the sweltering heat of Delhi, at temperatures as high as 48 degree.

Fuel Economy – The Brezza is undoubtedly a winner in this category.

The City Mileage can go up to 20kmpl;all depends on the drivers ability to control the acceleration and gear shifting to bring out the best average possible from the car.
Seats – Nitin’s single most favourite thing about the car are the flat folding rear seats. It helps especially on his frequent road trips like the one to Spiti. He and his two friends were able to take turns to take rest in the back- the flat seats acting as a bed-while the other two drove in the front.What could be improved is perhaps the contour of the driver’s seat. Else, he feels, people with heavier backs and/or a V-shaped body might face some discomfort like he does. Making the seats roomier and providing better thigh and lumbar support would definitely enhance the ride in a Brezza.View

  Maruti suzuki Vitara Brezza Vdi AMT- Seat





 The car has strategic seat positioning, humongous cabin space and perfectly placed rear window. This helps him to have a close to 360 degree view of the surrounding traffic and puts him at ease with his driving.


Driving Pleasure He gets to have a clean, smooth city ride in spite of the traffic as the car never tires him unlike the Ecosport .He considers the car perfect for both city and highway drive. He suggests this car to be apt for newbies or women drivers in love with light, compact cars. This is because he has seen how much his wife loves driving the Brezza in contrast to the Honda city.

She has a better time manouvering a Chevrolet Beat or the Brezza. And it instills confidence in her to be able to ride through the busy Delhi traffic with much ease, thanks to the how smooth the Brezza runs.

Features

The Music System, Bluetooth connectivity etc. Are all up to the mark and nothing exceptional. Nitin doesn’t really miss the absence of a navigation screen as he believes gadgetry as those are only to get flawed over time.

What I don’t love about my Maruti Suzuki Brezza

Safety Features - Maruti has never really been famed for its safety and Nitin echoes that sentiment. He is disappointed that the company has failed to provide curtain airbags even in his top-end variant of Brezza, though almost all other cars in this segment have them. He thinks it is the usual cost cutting methods that Maruti employs.

    Maruti suzuki Vitara Brezza Vdi AMT - Gear Shfit

Gear Shifting – Though pretty smooth in operating, the gear-shifting leaves a lot to be desired. The initial pick-up is great but it keeps progressively decreasing across higher gears.

   Maruti suzuki Vitara Brezza Vdi AMT- Tyre

Tyres – Nitin simply hates the tyres and there are good reasons for that. The Apollo tyres that Brezza has are known for being noisy and squeaky,. He complains of extremely poor tyre quality which has led to them being completely burts through collision with the smallest of rocks. He had to get them all changed and hopes that Maruti would provide the car with Bridgestone or Michelin instead.

   Maruti suzuki Vitara brezza Vdi AMT - Steering

Steering - The steering is light, easy to control but also in need of a strong grasp on the highways to avoid strong impacts with bumpers.

Build Quality – The material being as light as it is, the car would almost always vibrate to the core each time a truck were to pass it on the highway.

Pros

1. Smooth Driving Experience.
2. Light Compact Car.
3. Spacious cabin with Flat Folding Rear Seats.
4. Great Fuel Economy.
5. Great Resale Value.

Cons

1. Light Build Quality.
2. Horrible Service Centers.
3. Dismal pick-up on higher gears.
