Highlights

 

May 20, 2016: The Government has reduced the duty on electric and hybrid cars in Delhi. As a result the diesel variants of the Ertiga have witnessed a price drop of upto Rs. 62,000. The diesel variants of the Ertiga come equipped with SHVS technology which gives the car features like engine idle start/stop and brake energy regeneration. This qualifies the Ertiga as a hybrid car. The Ertiga’s base variant was priced at Rs. 7.59 lakh earlier, but now costs Rs. 7.08 lakh. The top variant was priced at Rs. 9.28 lakh and is now available for Rs. 8.66 lakh. This price drop is limited only to Delhi.

Maruti Ertiga review

Introduction:

The compact utility vehicle segment was almost non-existent till the introduction of the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga in 2012. Unlike conventional UVs, the Ertiga felt, looked and drove like a car, which also became the recipe for its success. The carmaker called it the LUV (Life Utility Vehicle), an offering targeted at urban families looking for three rows in compact dimensions.  
Is the Ertiga capable of taking on the full-size 7 seaters on offer? We find out! 


Pros:

Competent engines that offer good fuel economy. The diesel churns out a range-topping 24.52 kmpl and the petrol, 17.5 kmpl. 
For a 7-seater utility vehicle, the car has great road manners. 
Maruti Suzuki promises a tension-free after-sales service experience. 

Cons: 

The second row does not tumble down, making it difficult to get in and out of the third row. 
With all three rows up, the boot space stands at 135 liters. You have to choose between extra passengers or their luggage. 

Stand-Out Features: 

The nifty storage box in the boot makes it easy to organize knick-knacks. 
Small turning radius of 5.2 metres makes the Ertiga easy to drive in the city. 
Third-row passengers get full functioning seatbelts as opposed to lap belts. 

Exteriors:

The Ertiga recently underwent a midlife makeover and received some subtle changes inside-out. Also, the mild-hybrid SHVS setup has now been added to make the package more lucrative.  


Up front, the most prominent styling change comes in the form of a new 3-slat chrome radiator grille that replaces the earlier all-black honeycomb unit. 


A relatively thicker strip of chrome sits just beneath the bonnet shut line, whereas the two chrome slats below follow a  curve and lend a smiling face to the Ertiga, as against the earlier face that looked blunt and boring. 


The sweptback headlamps have been retained, and also the conventional lighting setup, which is certainly disappointing as we were expecting projectors this time (at least in the top trim).


The bumper has also been redesigned and now incorporates a smaller air dam that’s almost square in shape. This in turn has released some extra space for the fog lamp housings. The fog lights continue to be round, but get some extra shine, all thanks to the chrome-lined eyebrows. 


The side profile of the new Ertiga remains almost identical to the previous version. The flared wheel arches alongside a sharp crease connecting at the lower end work well in adding some muscle to the otherwise blunt-looking side. Also, a subtle crease runs through the shoulder, just beneath the windows.


We love the alloy design, but a set of 16-inchers would have given the Ertiga a more mature look than the stock 15 ones. 


Moving to the rear, the vertically opening tailgate has a thick strip of chrome with the car’s name engraved on it. Like the front, the rear bumper has also been slightly redesigned. The fog lamps – which were placed in the centre earlier – have now been ditched, though the car retains reflectors at each end. Tail lamps and everything else remains identical to the earlier model. 


The Ertiga is remarkably compact for a utility vehicle. It is 4265 mm long, 1695 mm wide, 1685 mm high and has a wheelbase of 2740 mm. So it is shorter than the Ciaz and, in profile, doesn't have any of the bulk of larger conventional utility vehicles. 

Interiors:

The Ertiga’s cabin feels familiar as well as unfamiliar. While the dash design and the whole cabin layout is similar to the Swift and DZire, the colour scheme is entirely different. It gets a mix of beige and brown instead of the black-and-beige combination of the Dzire and the Swift’s all-black. 


The main motive behind the use of lighter colours is to make the cabin feel bright, airy and spacious, and we must say Maruti has passed this test with distinction. The steering wheel, gear knob, seats and even the carpets are beige. So, maintaining the cabin will not be an easy job. 


Talking about the storage space, all doors get bottle holders and some additional space for keeping small items. There’s a cup-holder for the driver, placed in front of the gear stick, whereas the front occupant gets a pop-out cup-holder right below the aircon vent. Both front seats get seat-back pockets. The third row passengers get armrests integrated into the wheel arches, and cup holders as well.


The seats in the Ertiga are placed much higher than in the Swift and Dzire. The front occupants get really comfortable seats and the view out of the windscreen is brilliant. The driving position is very un-UV–like, and one gets the impression of driving a Dzire on stilts. The top-spec trim also comes with driver seat height adjustment. 


The 3-spoke steering is great to hold and gets controls for telephony, audio and voice assist under the left thumb. The instrument panel is similar to the Swift and looks neat having a tacho, speedometer, temperature and fuel gauge, a small LCD display, and space for warning lights inside it. The top-spec Ertiga even has a start–stop button.  


Legroom in the second row is generous, while the third row is suited only for small journeys. With the third row down, the second row can slide all the way back, liberating decent legroom. 


The seats are comfortable and offer good under-thigh support. With all seven seats in place, the luggage space can hold just two regular bags. Alongside this, there’s a concealed storage bay hidden beneath, which can hold small items. In case you are wondering where the Ertiga’s spare wheel manages some space for itself, it’s mounted under the body, as with most MPVs.


Engine & Performance:

The Ertiga gets two engine options – Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre turbo-diesel and a 1.4-litre K14 petrol motor. 


The 1.3-litre unit running under the hood of the Ertiga gets tuning similar to the Ciaz and the S-Cross. Having a variable geometry turbo instead of a fixed one, the engine puts out 89 bhp @ 4,000 rpm of max power and 200 Nm of peak torque @ 1,750 rpm. Twist the ignition key and the engine settles down into a very refined idle, with very little of it audible inside the cabin. The unit feels most comfortable and happy during relaxed cruising on the highway, but driving in the city reveals the serious lack of punch at the lower RPMs. Maruti Suzuki has shortened the gear ratio to the initial set of gears, in a bid to work around the lag under 2000rpm. But the lack of power is still very evident, especially when you’re running full house. But once the turbo kicks in post the 2000 rpm mark, there is a strong surge, accompanied by an even spread of power, and the motor doesn’t allow you to complain. The smooth-shifting, five-speed gearbox, in combination with a light clutch, comes as relief for the driver.
 

We quite liked the refinement levels that are better than most of the other UVs. The unit does get fairly loud when revved hard, but rest assured that it will never bother you. 
The Ertiga became the first car to get the K14 1.4-litre petrol engine, which is nothing but a bigger version of the Swift’s 1.2 K-Series. The 1,373cc unit is rated at 94 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 130 Nm of torque @ 4,000 rpm, and shows the same kind of characteristics as its younger sibling. It remains quiet at most instances and comes across as smooth and swift under hard acceleration.


Low-end power is the strongest point of the Ertiga petrol. Just like the diesel, here gain shorter ratios have been chosen for the initial set of gears. Throttle response at low rpms is commendable. Where you have to fight with the turbo-lag in the Ertiga diesel, the petrol counterpart offers the much-desired punch. The mid-range performance, unlike the diesel, is flat, and forces you to frequently downshift to keep things on fire. Overall, the Ertiga petrol is best at lower rpms, mediocre between 2,500–4,000 rpm, and enjoys cruising post that. 

Putting some more light on the latest hybrid tech, the SHVS, which is only available with the diesel Ertiga. It has some prerequisites before it can kick-in – the driver’s door needs to be closed, seat belt should be worn, the aircon needs to be in the ‘auto’ mode and, surprisingly, the headlights must be switched off. 

Ride & Handling :

Maruti Suzuki’s attempt to make the Ertiga car-like is what impressed us the most. The main reason behind this is the use of a car-like monocoque chassis as opposed to other UV’s body-on-frame construction. 
It has an impeccable ride quality at low speed and absorbs the worst of roads with ease. Even at medium speeds, the Ertiga flattens out bad roads without throwing passengers around. But at high speeds, the soft suspension leads to a certain amount of unnecessary bounciness on the uneven roads. The rear end lacks that planted feeling over undulating stretches of tarmac. 
Despite having soft suspension, handling isn't all over the place, if pitted against other UVs. It takes corners with relative ease and doesn’t ask you to slow down for every corner like the other UVs. Its long wheelbase is one of the major reasons for its good stability. 

We must say, getting behind the wheel of the Ertiga really impresses you. You can go around the corners with confidence. Body roll is well contained and, overall, the handling is nice. The steering unit offers good feedback and is light enough at city speeds. Manoeuvrability too is brilliant, and taking u-Turns is relatively easy with 5.2 metre turning radius. 

Safety:

The diesel Ertiga gets ABS & EBD as standard across all variants. Base petro trim, the Ertiga LXi is the only one in the range to miss out on ABS & EBD. Airbags (driver and passenger) though are only offered on the top trims. For better braking, Maruti Suzuki has installed larger front disc & rear drum brakes. 


Variants:

Safety is becoming a priority nowadays and, as a result, ABS & EBD (that might act as a life-saver for you in case of emergency braking), and Dual Front Airbags are standard across all variants in the new Ertiga. Earlier, all these safety features were restricted to just the top-spec variant. 

If you are budget conscious, you can go for the Base L trim, but you will miss out certain features, such as the infotainment system, rear parking sensors and centre locking. While the CarPlay infotainment system, pictured above, can only be found in the top-spec Z trims. The V gets an infotainment system like the old model but gets speaker and Bluetooth connectivity. You will get parking sensors in the model as well. Parking sensors, electrically foldable wing mirrors and those beautiful-looking alloys are available just on the Z trim.

Verdict:

The Ertiga is a no-nonsense product that is large inside, yet not so large on the outside, which makes it an ideal family car for the metros. It checks most boxes right, having good engines that are refined and offer good driveability and are, of course, fuel efficient as well. The biggest plus has to be getting the backing of Maruti Suzuki’s country-best network support.
