Engine

Mahindra TUV300 Plus P4 vs Maruti Ertiga V

Maruti Ertiga

Price Difference: The Mahindra is dearer than the Maruti by Rs 2,000.

Common Features: Microhybrid technology and front and rear power windows.

What TUV300 Plus offers over Ertiga: The TUV300 Plus doesn't get much over the Ertiga except for the tilt-adjustable steering wheel.

What Ertiga gets over the TUV300 Plus: Dual front airbags, ABS, rear parking sensors, front fog lamps and electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs with turn indicators. Other features include 60:40 split 2nd row and 50:50 split 3rd row, 2nd row AC, day/night IRVM, central locking with keyless entry, and music system with bluetooth and steering-mounted controls.

Verdict: The Ertiga is the clear pick here since the TUV300 Plus misses even basic safety features like ABS and dual front airbags.

Mahindra TUV300 Plus P6 vs Maruti Ertiga Z

Mahindra TUV300 Plus

Price Difference: Nil. Both the cars carry an identical price tag of Rs 9.95 lakh.

Common Features (over the previous variants): Dual front airbags and ABS.

What TUV300 Plus offers over Ertiga: The TUV300 Plus doesn't get much over the Ertiga except for EBD, tilt-adjustable steering wheel and 16-inch wheels.

What Ertiga gets over the TUV300 Plus: Front fog lamps,rear parking sensor, electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs with turn indicators, alloy wheels (15-inch) and rear wiper, washer and defogger. Other features include 60:40 split 2nd row and 50:50 split 3rd row, 2nd row AC, day/night IRVM, central locking with keyless entry, second row AC, driver seat height adjuster and music system with bluetooth and steering-mounted controls.

Verdict: Going by the features, the Ertiga continues to be our choice here. However, if you really need a 9-seater or a more accommodating vehicle, you can go for the TUV300 Plus and get the much-needed features such as parking sensors with camera, central locking and music system fitted from the aftermarket, which should cost you somewhere around Rs 20,000-Rs 25,000.

Mahindra TUV300 Plus P8 vs Maruti Ertiga Z+

Mahindra TUV300 Plus

Price Difference: The Mahindra is dearer than the Maruti by Rs 29,000.

Common features (over previous variants): Front fog lamps, rear wiper, washer and defogger, alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, electrically adjustable ORVMs, steering-mounted controls, remote lock and keyless entry, driver seat height adjuster and folding 2nd row seats.

What TUV300 Plus offers over Ertiga: EBD, tilt-adjustable steering wheel and a smartphone app that offers information like distance to empty, service reminder and control for several other car functions (Mahindra Blue sense mobile app).

What Ertiga gets over the TUV300 Plus: Electrically foldable ORVMs, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, reverse parking camera, 2nd row AC and push-button start with smart key.

Verdict: Both the cars here are very competitively equipped and offer good value for money. The Ertiga, in this case, should be your pick if you’ll primarily use it as a 5-seater and not 7 (7 could be an occasional affair, but only for children at the back). The TUV300 Plus is the bigger vehicle here and should seat more than 5 people in better comfort compared to the Maruti. It’s also the one with the bigger engine.

Reader’s Note:

Ertiga Limited Edition

Maruti Ertiga Limited Edition: Alongside the standard variants, Maruti is also offering a ‘Limited Edition’ model of the Ertiga. It is basically a cosmetic job based on the V variant of the MPV and is priced at Rs 9.86 lakh (ex-showroom Jaipur). It attracts a premium of Rs 14,000 over the standard V variant.
