Value for Money
Exterior Familiar Maruti looks. Front & side looks are like the beloved D'Zire.
Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Maruti should give option of middle row, with 2 seperate seats, each bent forward & backward (like the front seats). GM Enjoy, M&M XYLO etc. offer cars with 2 seats miidle row. There is more comfort, more space and good leg space is there in otherwise cramped 3rd row.
Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox Its tested FIAT 1.3 Diesel running in many cars, LINEA, PUNTO, VISTA, MANZA, RITZ, DZ'ire, SWIFT, Sx4, FIAT 500 and ERTIGA. AMong the lowest cost of maintaining this Diesel that has adequate power. Though heavy SX4, LINEA & ERTIGA dont match the performance of lighter Ritz, Swift, VISTA etc.
Ride Quality & Handling Its better than much costly peers like DUSTER, Ecosport.
Final Words Maruti should give option of middle row with 2 speprate seats (like front seats) to make its very comfortable.
Areas of improvement Cut body weight by some 100-150 Kgs. Middle row with 2 seats and spare wheel on tail gate (like Ecosport) to make Ertiga look more sporty.Maruti Network, Low maintenance costMiddle & Last Row lack comfort vs competition
