Aftermarket car modification houses have a way of making regular cars resemble some premium luxury cars and this Maruti Brezza-based Wannabe Range Rover Evoque is a perfect example of that.

It’s by now pretty well established that to many, the new Maruti Brezza looks like a the Range Rover Evoque. While this is not really the truth, some do trace an uncanny resemblance between the two SUVs. This is largely due to the more modern front- and rear-end and the square-ish side profile of the second-gen Brezza. Not surprisingly, many have tried to give their new Maruti SUVs a more Range Rover-like look through some subtle mods. The car you see below, though, takes things to another level by featuring Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover badges along with some basic mods.

Wannabe Range Rover Based on New Maruti Brezza LXI

The customiser has made some change to the body colour of the SUV. While the lower-half of the SUV has been entirely painted in white, the pillars and the roof are painted black for a dual-tone appearance. The side profile features new multi-spoke alloys and wider tires. Additionally, the brake calibers and the rear drums have been painted neon for a sporty appearance. Moreover, the front fender and the bonnet get faux scoops. There’s even some silver graphics not he front doors to mimic the Evoque look. In our opinion, the most prominent aspect of this is the wheel arches and side body cladding. We are not used to seeing these in white colour. Additionally, the front area above the bumper has also been turned white.

However, the biggest changes can be found on the front-end. The original headlamps have been given a black tint. Also, the front grille has been replaced by a ew unit that features a Land Rover badge. Also, the bonnet carries Range Rover letterings to complete the Evoque-like look. At the rear, the tailgate gets the same brand letterings along with Evoque and Land Rover badges. From the looks of it, this wannabe Range Rover Evoque is based on the base LXI trim of the new Maruti Brezza.
