Am Finally so happy and excited to announce officially that my 4th car has came home after a year of research on Car shopper thread:New Sedan or Compact SUV Under Rs.13 Lakhs
Found Mine!!!. Its a Maruti Suzuki Ertiga ZDI+ SHVS.
Make: Maruti Suzuki India Limited
Variant: ZDi+ SHVS
Colour: First Booked Serene Blue then Changed to Granite Grey
Bharat Stage: 4
Manufactured on November month so its a newly manufactured one!!!!
1.Biege interiors makes the interiors look more upmarket and airy!
2. Pricing Below 12Lacs with 7inch Touchcreen audio with all the bells and whistles
3. SHVS I know that its not a full on hybrid but the mild hybrid system will reflect me a big saving on the wallet not only on daily basis but also on highways
5. Very Low NVH, With A/C On You can't figure out whether the engine is on or not until you see the tachometer
1. Beige its hard to maintain especially am scared of steering and gear knob
2. The navigation is a bit too formal to keen the address you have give it in full details like Coimbatore, OK then South, North, East or west Which part of Coimbatore??? so you got to get used to it
3. the audio system display is a finger print magnet
4. With the third row folded you can't recline the second row so much!
5. No Cooled Glove Box!!! what even a Similar costed Vitara brezza has that.
Thats it guys Even it has cons, But i love this car, Love you My LUV!!!
Now Coming Back to the Story:
After Buying swift we started to think going to a spacious car as we also started going to lots of HWY Trips we were sorely in a need for a big car, After a lot of confusions, When we visited to hubli in swift for the first time we saw a New Ertiga VDi on the hotel parking and as said by all " First Impression is the Best Impression" Than me All my other family members started liking its design and especially my dad forced me check for the price and features sort of details, Then i started checking for the prices and features i found that its a perfect VFM
Car to buy right now on the market. So Proceeded forward to book the car, then started a usual confusionCOLOUR
Family members all of them were very interested in getting serene blue so went further in booking serene blue variant we decided first was VDi and then my instinct started working very strong that i mostly use to feel after taking delivery that it would have been better if i took the top end variant so Decided to swap the Variant to ZDi+ and then the wait started.... Later one fine day my sales Consultant contacted me and said your car has arrived then i visited the stock yard to check how the vehicle, Hmm there's were a major change came again COLOUR
, Probably i didn't like the colour Serene blue in ertiga as the latest model get a hole lot of chrome and for light colour i didn't like it so decided to change the colour to Granite one of my and my --sister's Favorite colour so changed it and again the wait began for the next 75-85 Days and one fine day 21st of November got a call from sales consultant that your car came and sent you some pics of it saw it and not only me but all my family members loved the colour and then processed further to registration got 13K off on Fame Offer from Government for Hybrid system, NOTE: TO AVAIL THE SCHEME YOU NEED TO PRODUCE AADHAR CARD, then wait for the number began, my sister was eager to know the number, And on 25th November morning 11:08AM The number was texted to me from Sales Consultant that TN37CR4019 Was so happy that again i got a good number by luck after swift. And 26th November that is Yesterday Afternoon 1:05PM Car came home was so happy and now too.

3. Reading Some Ownership Reviews On Team BHP Saw a Lot of Issues At the Car Delivered Stage Frankly speaking That scared me so Dropped it.

The Front looks cool but i think maruti has over done it with a full on chrome grill
But the rear looks so beautiful, Tastefully Designed, makes a distinct difference from the previous ertiga but only a small change
