We are planning to buy Maruti Ertiga from a budget of 11L. Our yearly run is approximately 6000kms of which 95% is on highway. So I need valuable suggestions and inputs in this regard.
1. Which should I for? Petrol or Diesel.
2. Should I increase my budget a little bit for top model or stick to 2nd top.
3. Is this the right time to buy or I should wait for 3-4 months for a better offer.
Any another point?
Your choice depends mainly on how long will you keep the car. My choice is the diesel purely because of the torque and highway cruising abilities. The new Ertiga is even more flexible and a bit better to drive in traffic because of SHVS. Add the advantage of long equipment list and you get an incredibly VFM
offering which the rivals don't offer.
Regarding 7 seating, there is no problem in the seating space and capacity for 7 unless all the passengers are heavily built or taller than 5'10". The trick is to adjust the seats accordingly. In my family only me and my brother are 5'11", so no problems for us even for long drives. The 3rd row too is quite supportive compared to rivals, so no worries.
Since the V and Z variants themselves offer 2 airbags and ABS
, I don't think there is a need to opt for the Z+ unless you need those flashy tech.
Go for it.
