Priced in the range of Rs 6.16-10.45 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Maruti Ertiga is a ridiculously good value for money offer. This 7-seater multi point vehicle (MPV) gives the families a freedom to travel together and that too without burning hole in the pocket. Maruti Ertiga styling is more like a car than a MPV or van and this aspect has made it considerably popular among the private buyers. The flexible seating arrangements in both second and third row allow for numerous permutations, thereby fitting into variety of the traveling and cargo carrying requirements of the users. The Ertiga is powered by 1.4-liter K-series petrol and 1.3-liter DDiS diesel motor capable of putting out 92PS/130Nm and 90PS/200Nm respectively. Both these motors are mated to 5-speed manual transmission with petrol motor getting the additional convenience of automatic gearbox. The Ertiga has currently got the likes of Honda BR-V, Renault Lodgy, and Datsun Go Plus in its crosshairs.
The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga prioritises function over form. No crazy curves, simple, straight lines and flat-ish body panels. Thoughtful chrome touches in the front and rear make up the loudest design elements of this plane Jane utility vehicle.

Large windows and beige interiors light up the cabin and give the driver a good view of the surroundings. The waterfall centre console on the dashboard looks elegant and houses the touchscreen Smartplay infotainment system. Ingress and egress into the front two rows are easy. Access to the third row is also fairly easy with adequate space for shorter people and kids. The ride is plush regardless of the seat you pick.
The Ertiga is available with a 1.4-litre petrol engine and a 1.25-litre diesel engine. The petrol motor makes 93PS of power at 6000rpm and 130Nm of torque at 4000rpm. The diesel mill churns out 90PS at 4000rpm and 200Nm at 1750rpm. Both the engines come paired with a 5-speed manual transmission while the petrol is also available a 4-speed torque converter. The fuel efficiency rating of the petrol motor stands at 17.5kmpl for the manual variants and 17kmpl with the automatic. The diesel is able to deliver an exceptional figure of 24.5kmpl in test conditions because of the mild hybrid system.

The Ertiga is available in four trims: L, V, Z and Z+. Pricing ranges from Rs 6.16 lakh to Rs 8.64 lakh for the petrol variants and Rs 8.57 lakh to Rs 10.45 lakh for the diesel engine. The automatic transmission is available in the VXi trim for Rs 8.47 lakh, which is about Rs 1 lakh more than the VXi manual. The VXi is also available with a factory CNG kit for a premium of Rs 60,000.

Driver airbag is standard on Ertiga while ABS is standard on diesel variants. All safety features are available on the V, Z and Z+ trims and optional on the L. The optional safety kit for LXi costs about Rs 38,500 while the LDi gets all of it for just Rs 7,500.

Renault Lodgy: Just like the Ertiga, the Renault Lodgy also has a fairly straightforward design. The Lodgy is bigger, more spacious, has two diesel engines to choose from, and is available in 7-seat and 8-seat configurations. The starting price is also Rs 87,000 lower than the Ertiga, but the reasonably equipped RXE is priced at Rs 8.64, which isn't far from the Ertiga LDi's ex-showroom price. The top-spec RXZ gets a bunch of extras such as optional second-row captain seats and cruise control. The 110PS variants also get a 6-speed transmission to exploit the extra power and torque on the highways.

The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is a solid choice in the MPV segment. Reliable mechanicals, frugal powertrains, an extensive service network, strong resale value, compliant ride and an affordable price tag keep it at the top of its game. The Chevrolet Enjoy tried to challenge the Ertiga's might, but the carmaker is now wrapping up its business in India. The Honda Mobilio's hefty price tag sealed its fate and is now out of production. While the Ertiga doesn't shine too bright in many areas, it doesn't severely falter in any; and that makes it an extremely well-rounded package.
