Pros : Price, look, maintability with the service stations around home/ city

Cons : Little bit less thigh supports in rear seats

Look and Style: My ZXI is the high-end Petrol model. The Royal white colour makes the passerby people to rest their eyes on the car and look back when I pass them. I took the delivery at Coimbatore on 8th May and have been on many trips like visiting temples around Coimbatore, Kerala and visited Ooty. The visits were really enjoyed by me and family members due to the comfort, space and everyone had their own choice of soft drinks and juice bottles by the side of their seat. 

The AC was quite comfortable when we were driving in the hot summer in Palakkad, Kerala still I do not want to sell my Maruti-800 AC of 2004. 

Pickup: Realised the pick up while overtaking on hills of Ooty.

    what is the mileage you are getting in the city?

    P.Mani |07 Jun,2012 03:22:26 PM

    I checked the average from the integrating meter and it was showing 9.5 KM/L in the crowded city riding of Coimbatore. After the first service I shall do a sincere test on mileage

    Dear Mr.Abhay I supplement that the average I mentioned was including a drive to Ooty, which must hv resulted in low mileage. (I mentioned my trips in my previous posting...Ooty)

    Mani.Pangan |06 Aug,2012 09:28:22 AM

    Dear Mr.Abhay After 3 months of using Ertiga, the City driving average is 13.8 KMPL, which includes my 2 times Hill Station visits. Probably the average could hv been 14.0 KM, excluding these visits

    Dear Mani As I have a low KMS monthly use ,decided to book ERTIGA VXi but still not want to sell my 800 as you feels.Let me know your advice on its maintenance cost

    Mani.Pangan |06 Aug,2012 09:26:06 AM

    Dear All I update my experience of my Ertiga after running it for 3 months. Now it is 13.8 KMPL which is more than the specified consumption and this figure includes driving to 2 hill stations. Hope that it must be more than 14 KMPL. I did not hv an opportunity to hv a long drive on Highway till now. Still I retain my Maruti-800 for driving short distances and reach the city interiors and avoid parking issues. My decision to go for Maruti Ertiga is proving to be worthy, day by day. P.Mani
