Maruti Ertiga First Review
Maruti Ertiga 2018

Maruti has launched its new model of Ertiga which was a big hit in past. This seven seater MPV is very spacious and comes with petrol, diesel and CNG options. its Amazing pricing and Maruti’s ultrawide support network played an important role in this success.Here is a detailed review of Maruti Ertiga 2018.

Design and looks:

The car looks more grown up now. The car gets an all-new face but the road presence is not too much. The car comes with more color options too. The car gets all-new headlamps and a grille. The grille gets a chrome surround. Coming to the side, the wheelbase has been increased. You get blackened B and C pillars. The rear of the car gets a taillamp, which I don’t know how but get the resemblance to the X5.

Interiors:

The car's interior looks more premium than ever. It is shared with the Dzire. The car gets sporty flat-bottomed steering. You also get a touchscreen infotainment system. The wooden finish looks a bit cheap though. The interior looks clean and smart but lacks flair. The 2nd-row space is nice too but under tight support is lacking. The 3rd-row space is improved so much, it is the best MPV with the 3rd-row space.

Ride and handling

The petrol engine powering the second generation Maruti Ertiga is the new K15B 1.5-liter petrol engine producing 103 HP at 6000 RPM and 138 Nm of torque at 4800 RPM. Offered with this engine is either a 5-speed MT or a 4-speed AT. The engine is super refined and is quiet for the most part but starts getting vocal at high RPMs. Power delivery is smooth and punchy and the redline comes in at around 6000 RPM. The engine feels livelier with the 5-speed MT which offers slick shifts and a light clutch while the 4-speed AT feels sluggish in comparison. However, it does its job fairly well under regular driving, though the shifts aren’t lightning quick

Verdict

The 2019 Maruti Ertiga is bigger and better. With a new platform, it is more comfortable, safer and also better to drive. It gets a new 1.5-liter petrol engine along with the second gen SHVS while the older diesel engine is also carried over. The Ertiga is a good car to own overall, however, the petrol MT is better to drive than the petrol AT because the 4-speed AT isn’t very modern.
