Hyundai offers a better warranty deal by not only offering a warranty period of 3 years and unlimited kilometres but this  can be also extended optionally if you have a higher average annual mileage running. Furthermore, with the warranty terms in place, Hyundai offers the segment-best warranty plan compared to any of its rivals.

Maruti Suzuki offers a 2 year warranty period and up to 40,000 kilometres. The automaker also offers the options of extending the warranty period to 3,4, or 5 years, with a 20,000 km increment for each year extended.

Both Hyundai and Maruti Suzuki offer 3 labour free services, but the former’s third free service extends to the second year of ownership compared to the latter’s first year. Labour charges form a significant portion of the service cost, and with the Venue’s service extending to the second year, it means it will be much cheaper compared to the Vitara Brezza. After the end of the three free services, the periodic service schedule is every 1 year or 10,000 kilometres.

Again, Hyundai has a clear advantage in the scheduled replacement interval of common replacement parts. The South Korean automaker provides a much longer replacement interval compared to the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza in parts like - Coolant – Lasting for 100,000 Kms / 5 Year in Venue as against 20,000 Kms / 2 Year in Brezza

Spark Plug - Lasting for 70,000 Kms / 6 Year in Venue as against 40,000 Kms / 4 Year in Brezza

Brake Fluid – Which is for Lifetime in Venue as against replacement interval of 20,000 Kms / 2 Year in Brezza

The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza claws back a few points by having a longer replacement interval of Air Filter and AC Filter, but overall the Venue is cheaper to maintain.
