I'm surprised to know that people are complaining about its a/c, can you please share the link?
I've been posting the review that my family,friends and I felt about the car.
Again I would say its a/c is awesome!
About its handling, please drive Innova, try some high speed cuts and then drive the Ertiga and do the same, you'll come to know what I'm speaking of. There is huge amount of diff. in body roll of both the cars.

You have already highlighted its plus points. We would also like to know the areas of drawback. That would immensly help the prospective buyers.
Yes, I was super excited about the car, much more than when we bought Innova.

Guys suggest me, what all accessories we should get with ZDI? Is it advisable to get seat cover and mat from Showroom or can be get it from outside. I will take all elctrical and scratch protection accessories from showroom only.
No,you should buy floor mats and seat covers from outside, even my dealer advised for the same. Floor mats will cost you 1700/- from the showroom and you can get them in about 1000/- from outside and same margin for the seat covers too!

Being completely overwhelmed by XUV 500 's beauty, I booked it few days ago. But after reading niggles of the car I am in 2 state of mind- logical part says ertiga, but illogical part says XUV.
Again congrats for LUV
Dude, XUV is XUV!
From every angle XUV looks like a STUD!
Though, if you consider Practicality and VFM
more than looks and status, then you can consider Ertiga.

Seats arranged at various positions: Attachment 47953

Thank you for posting the pics!
Sexy dash,gives premium feel
Good music system,gives good mixture of bass and treble and looks v.attractive at night
Space b/w gear and handbrake could have been utilised,though there are many cubby holes in the car. You won't feel lack of space anywhere in the car
Deep glove box
Chrome handles looks good and only Auto-Down switch for Driver's window
Bottle Holder and Speaker
There is enough space to keep your other small stuff on every door
Good use of Beige and Silver
I'm 6 feet tall and I sat on the front row,mid row and the last row, without changing the position of any seat
Headroom is not good for a person of my height,though its good for people upto 5.8-5.9
From 3rd row
From 2nd row
Rear a/c vents and its control knob
Rear view from 1st row
Rear a/c vents from 1st row
Good visibility,one do feels like he/she is sitting in a big caaar(suv/muv) due to its height
Its stock lights are more than satisfactory
Only with high beam(Fog lights are OFF)
High beam with Fog Lights ON
Only Fog Lights with Parking lights ON
Its boot space is 145 lts,and you can keep 3 laptop bags easily in it in a line,without opening the tray which is located down.
You can keep 3 more laptop bags on those 3,which will not exceed 3rd row's seat height.
Rear visibility is satisfactory keeping in mind its a muv and is better than of Innova due to its shorter length.
Its horn is very Maruti and doesn't match its character, I'll upgrade it to some manly horn, like of Skoda's.
Cooling in 3rd row is good. As already told, a/c cools the cabin in 10-15 mins.
Its giving me an average of 14.5 kmpl with 100% a/c driven 100% in the city,mostly on 2nd and 3rd gear.
It feels sluggish till 2000rpm and you will have to get used to it as you won't find anything before the 2K mark.
Interiors are good,they picked up Swift's Black dash and painted it black-beige for DZIRE and Brownish-Beige for Ertiga.
For one,who doesn't owns a new Swift or Dzire, Ertiga's interiors do look very premium than Verna's, Innova's and Honda City too at most parts IMO
Rear view mirrors are HUGE and are very practical and Useful,you can easily rely on them while reversing. Still, Parking Sensors are a Must in the car of this size. I'm too going to get them installed soon.
Many are saying that this car cannot be compared to Innova/Xylo.
I don't know about Xylo, but this car surely can be compared to Innova and is going to be a very tough competition for Innova!
Ertiga has the same/better pulling power than Innova after the turbo boosts in. It has better Power to weight ratio than Innova and produces the same torque( 200 NM), so just due to its small Engine capacity,you can't say anything about its performance just by looking its numbers on paper, you will have to drive it and then you'll realize what Maruti and 1.3 Multjet/DDIS/Quadrajet can do!
If you live in rural area and often travel to city and far away places having bad roads, then Innova is your car.
Else in every condition you can consider Ertiga over Innova for sure!
