In Ertiga, Maruti has come up with another brilliant product yet again, but its not going to be easy considering most of its competition are already well established. Lets take a look
The MPV that started it all and is still the king. The Innova basically had no real competition and has been holding the fort for Toyota ever since its inception. Spacious, car like handling along with bullet proof reliability and a brilliant after sales network have been its key strengths. The Ertiga not only sports all of the above but is also priced more competitively as well. We have a battle on our hands.
GM’s workhorse has just received a major update on the engine front and a minor one on the outsides and insides. The Tavera is not only BSIV now but is also much more refined and a way better MPV to be in compared to its predecessor. However GM will have to do a lot more than this to put up a fight with the Innova or the Ertiga
Tata Sumo Grande Dicor
In this bunch, it’s pretty much the most SUVish MPV. Its also the most powerful with a 120 PS on tap. The Sumo Grande has also gone though a lot of updates and makes for quite a decent buy in its current avatar. There is space but packaging could have better. If the looks are not an issue, the Sumo Grande is pretty much the most powerful MUV you can buy.
The Xylo has been around for a while now and is already in its second avatar. Mahindra got it pretty much right in the first attempt and now the updated version boasts a lot of improvements. Acres of space, very refined and loaded to the brim, the Xylo comes across as an extremely value for money MUV. Dynamics suffer a bit thanks to its sky scraping height but other than that the Xylo feels perfectly fine on that long open stretch of road. The Ertiga is dwarfed by the Xylo in terms of dimensions but other than that its a tough choice between the two.
