1) Buying experience
Called up the showroom and their executives came to my house with their test drive vehicle.. liked it in a glance and gave them the booking amount. And got my car delivered in a week.
2) Driving experience
Average performance, but very smooth riding. Good breaks.. easy and smooth gear shifts, mild hybrid technology works quietly, soft suspension. Awesome for city riding and highways. But overtaking cars on the highway is a bit difficult.. takes a second for the power to kick in even after flooring the gas pedal
Add a drl to the headlights if possible and god it looks great. You probably won't have an other choice considering the price range and automatic petrol engine in a 7 seater muv. Torque converter gearbox is smooth..
Servicing my ertiga is so cheap that it costed me less than 500 for first 3 servicing. Pick nd drop facilities were available. Have never faced a single issue with the car. Servicing gets done in a day.
