2nd part of my Review
To cut short . Till now i've completed 3098kms and here is list of my Highway Drive's and my opinion on Ertiga ZDI.
1> Thane- Nasik (more than 2 times) 300kms X 2
2> Thane-Mahad :- 160kms round trip
3> Thane-Kolhapur-Thane :- Close to 700kms . Looks
:- From front end car looks like a Hatch , its only after looking from side you realize that its a MPV and not some random hatch . Looks from rear end sucks big time, I just hate to see car from back side, it looks so tiny with those small tail lamps. Other wise overall looks 6/10
:- Comfort on first 2 seats and middle row is class leading , Tons of leg room and head room . I dont think there is a better car in 10-11L range if your priority is Comfort , But at the same time Last row in only OK ! for small drives , because there is hardly any leg room for last row passenger. There is A/c unit for Center and last row which is boon , with blower knob on 2 it cools down car with in 5-7minutes which is very impressive. Overall comfort 7/10 Built Quality, fit and finish of plastic parts
:- Built quality is very good, fit and finish of other plastic parts is also acceptable , unlike other cars i dont see much gap between two panels. Overall Built Quality 8/10 Handling and Braking
:- Handling is impressive, specially considering its a MPV , Negotiating through long corners is very easy but on sharp turn you can feel Body Roll which dose'nt give much confidence on Sharp turns. Still i feel handling is not that bad. Braking is also very effective, On my last drive i had to brake very hard to avoid an Innova who suddenly jumped into my lane @ 30 kmph and i was almost doing 100+ on NH3 car managed to Stop in time without any fishtailing . Overall Handling and Braking 8/10 Engine Performance
:- I sometime feel that it would be great to have 1.6L engine instead 1.3L , After 110kmph car feel little stressed and any thing after 120 is not good for this engine ( please correct me if am wrong) . But that Turbo Kick you get after 1700rpm is priceless on highway all you have to do is keep RPM needle above 1700rpm Enjoy overtaking . this car has given me maximum of 18kmpl and minimum 14kmpl which is very good for this kind of a car. The only drawback is Turbo Lag which some times is very irritating in city traffic , otherwise its just pure bliss to drive this car on Highway's. Overall Engine Performance 9/10
just 4-5 days back i got New seat covers and Sunfilm for my car. I will post some pics of that after some time.
Thank You !
