I purchased New Ertiga VDi On June 15 from Apra Gurgaon. i am sharing my experience of buying & view on the drive & handling.
As earlier i own two cars one Dzire Vdi 2012 & hyundai santro 2006 CNG, my santro done around 160K so started giving problems (Not much but i am just fad up by driving for so long years so wish to upgrade)
I have shortlisted Amaze & Ertiga both Diesel & as both are spacious.
I go to dealers of both with my father & the we decided to go for Ertiga as Ertiga have batter flexibility & interior is also good. as we already satisfied with performance of Dzire so there is no issue with engine performance.
i go to maruti dealer on Friday & ask for price & discount & offers. they told me that in june they are offering 30K cash + 35K exchange + corporate discount. as i have to buy on cash so they dont need any other formality. i asked them are they able to provide vehicle on sunday & one next day they say that they have a silver Ertiga in stock so we decided to buy on Sunday
On sunday i drive in to dealer in my santro & drive out in ertiga in just 1:30 hrs of paper work.
Till now i have driver Ertiga around 750km & i am happy with my decision as car is very spacious when used as 5 seater (as 95% i have to use as 5 seater ) & can fit up to 7 people. Driving position is much batter then that of Dzire.
