Maruti India had literally stunned the ecstatic crowd yesterday with the Maruti XA Aplha compact SUV and here comes the India's first compact MPV Maruti Ertiga MPV with its all superfluous presence in front of the crowd. The grandeur of the MPV cannot be captured in words and is a pure luxury to watch the MPV standing erect in front of the masses.
Ertiga will have 3 row seats spacious enough to accommodate 7 people comfortably(2+3+2). Maruti India is set to make its presence known in the utility vehicle segment and Maruti Ertiga MPV and the XA Alpha concept are the clear examples. Coming to the Ertiga, the MPV is a seven-seater with both petrol and diesel options to drive the car.
The MPV will be come in both petrol and diesel trims,the petrol variant will come powered with a K-14, 1.4 L , petrol engine delivering 70KW power @6000 rpm and a peak torque of 130Nm @4000 rpm, while the diesel variant will come affixed with a 1.3 liter diesel engine, churning out maximum power of 66KW@4000 rpm and 200Nm torque @1750 rpm.
Ertiga MPV diesel variant is claimed to offer a whopping mileage of 20.77 kmpl while the petrol variant is likely to deliver a decent mileage of 16.02 kmpl. The MPV will don safety features like dual airbag and ABS. Comfort features like twin AC, tilt steering will also be present in the compact MPV. Ertiga MPV is expected to be launched either by the end of March or beginning of June.
Built on the Maruti Ritz platform it’s nothing less than a delight to drive the car whose platform is that of a car, but otherwise is an out and out MPV. Although it would be interesting to see how Maruti India comes up with the Maruti Ertiga price which is ideally meant to rival Toyota Innova and Mahindra Xylo MPV in the market.
