Over all Review of Maruti Ertiga VDI
India saw another gem of a car this year in form of Maruti Ertiga. This was one car that attracted the maximum attention this year by media as well as customers. The car suits a joint family and is accommodating in terms of luggage as well. Even though it can seat 7 yet, unlike the others with this spaciousness, Maruti Ertiga is compact enough to suit the city driving. The other MPVs in the market are usually larger in size. This multipurpose vehicle was showcased at the Delhi Auto Expo 2012 and is positioned as the Life Utility Vehicle a.k.a LUV. The car is built on the Maruti Swift platform which is the same on which Maruti Ritz and Maruti Dzire are based upon. Overall Ertiga is known as the extended Swift and when looked upon closely, the front of the MPV is very similar to the hatchback Ritz. The car is available in both petrol as well as diesel model which makes the car even more desirable. The models vary from LXI, VXI, VXI ABS and ZXI in petrol trims and LDI, VDI and ZDI in the diesel line up.
Maruti Ertiga VDI is powered by a 1.3-litre 16V DDiS diesel engine that churns out a good power of 88.8bhp at 4000rpm and returns a mileage of 17.2kmpl in the city and about 20.77kmpl on the highways. The car even in its lower trim comes with ABS (Anti Lock Braking System) with Brake Assist and EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution) which makes the drive of the car pretty secure as well as comfortable. The car features an entertainment system with 4 speakers, body colored ORVMs, full wheel covers, electronic power steering and electric internally adjustable ORVMs.
Ertiga comes with a decent quality as well as comfort levels. At the same time the MPV is also a performer and thus making the car an out and out winner and very suitable for the Indian driving conditions.
Mileage and Fuel Economy
Maruti Ertiga VDI, complying to BS IV OBD-2 emission norms, returns a mileage of 20.77kmpl when driven on highways and 17.2kmpl when driven in the city. Mileage is one factor that brings maximum support and trust for the Maruti Suzuki India. Not only does the car return a good figure in terms of mileage but the new series engine helps the car maintain lower carbon emissions as well. The credit for the mileage returned goes to the powerful and efficient 1.3-litre DDiS diesel engine as well as a comparatively lighter weight of the MPV. This factor makes Maruti Ertiga quite desirable.
Adorning Maruti Ertiga 2012 are seven stylish shades that range from simple Superior White, Silky Silver and Granite Grey to flashy Fire Brick Red to calm Ecru Beige, Dusky Brown and Serne Blue thus, giving customers freedom to choose their color from this range of options that are available for them.
Acceleration and Pick up
The DDiS engine used in Maruti Ertiga VDI helps the car perform smoothly whether in terms of mileage or in terms of pick up and acceleration. Ertiga diesel can accelerate from 0 – 100kmph in about 15.5 seconds. The car is zippy as well and can touch about 150 kmph or even more at times which is a superb thing because Ertiga has to live up to the responsiveness and chirpiness of Maruti Swift, Ritz and the likes in the Maruti line up.
Ertiga unlike the other competitors in the MPV market is smaller in size yet can seat 7 people comfortably. In terms of looks, from the front we see a lot of resemblance with Maruti Ritz thanks to the grille and similarly styled bonnet. The headlamps seen on Ertiga are long and stretched which is very similar to the ones that can be seen Swift. Ertiga VDI does not get the alloy wheels like the ZXI and ZDI however it gets the wheel cover which looks decent enough as well. The side profile of the car is muscular and the prominent wheel arches add to the look. Coming to the interiors, because of the ground clearance it is pretty easy to get in and thus making the whole experience comfortable right from the first step. The cabin is very welcoming with roomy and airy feel. The dashboard has hints of Dzire on it but the colors give the cluster a different look. The steering gives one a good grip thus resulting to easy manoeuvring. The rear doors are large and the seats at the 2nd row can slide up to quite a distance making the entry to the 3rd row easy.
Maruti Ertiga VDI gets day and night interior rear view mirror along with an electronic power steering, digital clock, fuel consumption gauge, air conditioner with heater that also vents for the 3nd row, power windows and keyless entry etc. Adding to the comfort level of the passengers and driver are the safety features that include ABS – Anti Lock Braking System with BA – Brake Assist and EBD – Electronic Brake Distribution, security alarm and immobilizer etc. that gives the driver a sense of security while driving. Enhancing the entire experience of the car, the VDI trim gets an entertainment system with Radio and CD player which also features USB input and 4 speakers.
Maruti Ertiga is a compact car and for an MPV the car has smaller dimensions. The length of Ertiga is 4265mm, width is 1695mm, height is 1685mm and the wheelbase is 2740mm. The ground clearance of the car is 185mm which is not too low nor too high and allows ease of entry and exit.
Maruti Ertiga VDI gets 1.3-litre DDiS super turbo engine that can also be seen under the hood of Maruti SX4. The 16V diesel engine with a displacement of 1248cc churns out a maximum power of 88.8bhp at 4000rpm and produces a maximum torque of 200Nm at 1750rpm. The mileage returned by the car is 17.2kmpl in city driving conditions and about 20.77kmpl on highways. The diesel engine does make a little sound that enters the cabin when the car is being driven at a high speed otherwise the engine is pretty silent. The engine comes mated to a 5 speed manual transmission which gives the car a good performance.
Maruti Ertiga VDI gets 185/65 R15 sized tyres that are radial and have full wheel cover. The other high end variants do get alloy wheels as well. The wheels are wide enough to give the car a decently high stance and also help the car with smooth driving.
Maruti Ertiga gets McPherson Strut front suspension and rear Torsion beam which makes the handling of the car a little easy. The suspension is a little hard and has been tuned in a way that it suits the size and weight of the car so as to avoid excessive body roll and keep it to the minimum.
Handling and Control
With the McPherson Strurt front suspension and Torsion beam rear suspension coupled with disc front brakes and rear drum brakes the handling of the car is pretty good. The efficient braking system along with ABS with BA and EBD, the car stays under control even under extreme panic stop situations. The car performs well and rides perfectly even on sharp turns.
