Expert Test Drive Review

Maruti Ertiga Front View

When we think of MPV and Maruti, we think of the Omni and the Eeco. Earlier there was also the Maruti Versa which was not so successful. So why is Maruti having another go at this segment with the Ertiga? Because this time Maruti has painstakingly made sure it can succeed by carefully moulding the MPV to suit the Indian tastes plus ‘MPV’ is the latest buzzword in the Indian auto industry as Nissan and Chevrolet and others are also planning to launch MPV’s. But the Ertiga will not only compete with the MPV’s but also with other types of cars like a Honda Jazz or a sedan like a Honda City. The Ertiga aims to have all the car-like qualities along with the space of a true MPV. So is it any good? Is it true replacement for your sedan? Somnath Chatterjee drove both the diesel and petrol versions to find out.

Review - Ertiga CNG (VXI)
Posted on 15 Jul 13 at 1:17 pm

Pros Conversion from Petrol to CNG mode (Automated) and the doors get locked automatically within 10secs

Cons They should have given Rear Wiper in VXI model as there are only 2 models in CNG - LXI and VIX

Booked Ertiga CNG (VXI) and got delivery in 10 days. Thanks to the wonderful service by the Maruti dealer and staff from "My Car" Pune. Maruti has maintained it as a 7 seat car and is a dream to drive it. It has a 10kg CNG Tank. Did take it for a ride to Mumbai and to my surprise it did give me amazing mileage (Rs 2 per KM). The transition between Petrol to CNG and CNG to Petrol is amazingly smooth.

uncomfortable seats
Posted on 12 Dec 13 at 1:52 pm

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Fuel Efficiency,

Cons CongestedUncomfortable,

Good style but the third seat is low and has lesser leg space than the middle row, it can accommodate adults but those who have height more than 5'8 will face problems due to limited under thigh and leg space. These seats are more suitable for kids
