1. DOES ERTIGA PETROL HAS POWER SHORTAGE PROBLEM WHEN DRIVING ON UPHILL ROAD IN HILLY TERRAIN WITH FULL LOAD OF 7 PASSENGERS AND LUGGAGE.
2. WHAT IS THE ACTUAL AVERAGE (PETROL CONSUMPTION-KMPL) OF THIS CAR FOR BOTH THE CITY AND THE HIGHWAY DRIVES.
Maruti Suzuki Ertiga petrol comes with a 1.4-litre 93.7bhp 16V K Series Petrol Engine. Which is sufficient for a load of seven passengers along with their luggage. But if you are asking about the power lack during uphill driving,then every car with this power range suffers from this. For a smooth uphill driving, you have to buy a more powerful MUV or SUV.
Mileage of the car in city is 12.3kmpl and that on highway is 16.02kmpl. However, if you drive the car on uphill, the mileage can be decreased more.
There are ample options available in a SUV segment, if you want a car in a budget bracket of 11 lakhs such as Ford EcoSport, Maruti Vitara Brezza, Mahindra TUV 300 etc. Amongst them, some have economical maintenance, some possess outstanding looks, some come with good mileage and better power.
