Maruti Ertiga is a car that is directly competing with the Innova, the Ertiga gives you value for money. The new Ertiga has a good look and comes with attractive colours.
The head lights are very powerful and can drive easily on the Indian highways in the night.

Maruti Ertiga, when launched was not one of the most great looking MPV's in India. Rather the concept for a family MPV had just started to take shape in the Indian automotive space. It looked more like an extension of Maruti Swift, and why not, as it is built on the similar chassis. A lot of body and engine parts have been taken from Maruti Swift only. But keeping in mind the background, Maruti Suzuki has definitely done a great job in making a successful MPV. P.S- Maruti sells Avg.4500- 500 read more 21
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!
Things We Like in Ertiga
For a 7-seater utility vehicle, the car has great road manners.
Maruti Suzuki promises a tension-free after-sales service experience.
Competent engines that offer good fuel economy. The diesel churns out 24.52kmpl and the petrol, 17.5kmpl.
Things We Don't Like in Ertiga
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-litres. 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.
Third-row passengers get 3-point seatbelts as opposed to lap belts.
Small turning radius of 5.2-metres makes the Ertiga easy to drive in the city.
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 is 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 can’t-go-wrong after-sales network.
In India with a joint family which is very common it is necessary to own a vehicle which can accommodate many in comfort when planning a trip with family or friends. The need becomes inevitable for people like me who possess only a small vehicle. The only solution for this is to purchase a multipurpose vehicle which can be utilized for any kind of journey for large families. Many are compelled to sacrifice that desire when considering the size and the other inconveniences of such vehicles available in the market now.
