    The 1.3-litre diesel unit under the hood of the Ertiga gets tuning similar to the Ciaz and the S-Cross. Having a variable geometry turbo instead of a fixed one, the engine produces 90PS of power at 4,000rpm and 200Nm of peak torque at 1,750 rpm. Twist the ignition key and the engine settles down into a very refined idle, with very little of it audible inside the cabin. The unit feels most comfortable and happy during relaxed cruising on the highway, but driving in the city reveals the serious lack of punch at lower revs. But once the turbo kicks in post the 2,000rpm mark, there is a strong surge, accompanied by an even spread of power, and the motor doesn’t let you complain. The smooth-shifting five-speed gearbox, combined with a light clutch will come as relief for the driver. We quite liked the refinement levels that are better than most other UVs. The unit does get fairly loud when revved hard, but under normal driving conditions, it’s reasonably smooth for a diesel. on the other hand, the Ertiga was the first car to get the K14 1.4-litre petrol engine, which is nothing but a bigger version of the Swift’s 1.2 K-Series. The 1,373cc unit produces 93PS of power at 6,000 rpm and 130Nm of torque @ 4,000 rpm, and shows the same kind of characteristics as its younger sibling. It remains quiet at most instances and comes across as smooth and swift under hard acceleration. Low-end power is the strongest point of the Ertiga petrol. Throttle response at low rpms is commendable. The mid-range performance, unlike the diesel, is flat and forces you to frequently downshift to stay in the meat of the powerband. Overall, the Ertiga petrol is best at lower rpms, average between 2,500–4,000 rpm, and enjoys cruising post that. If you are traveling less than 50-60km a day, opt for a petrol car instead of a diesel. With the extra Rs 1-1.50 lakh spent on a diesel purchase, you can actually drive a similar petrol car for as many as two years! So, do your math carefully. A diesel usually makes sense if you are driving above 60/70km a day.

    The petrol engine will be always much more powerful and peppier then diesel. But then it depends on your daily running of vehicle also. I would suggest you to kindly think for Ertiga CNG version also. The mileage will be good though it will be not much as diesel but comparative good then only petrol.
