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.
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!
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.
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.
