Surely. I'll write as detailed as possible.
One question though: Why is Ertiga Facelift with SHVS not getting media coverage? I mean on car forums like ours (automotive india), team bhp etc? Also there is just 1-2 videos of it on youtube as well nor there are any ownership reviews for it.
Buddy, the reason as I see, are non-availability of media cars for individual auto forum like ours and a couple more. Maruti's idea of inviting selected
publications (those which are funded by external agencies) for media event. Delay in Test Drive Vehicles arriving to dealers. SHVS technology being same as that in CIAZ. My Uncle got his TD vehicle in November-2015.
Whereas Ciaz SHVS got very good media coverage. Is Ertiga SHVS not a good product?
That was the 1st Hybrid to be designed by Maruti and that too on car that had been launched just 1 year back i.e 2014. So craze was bound to be there. Now also if you see, Ertiga AMT, Dzire AMT, Wagon R AMT all are same with same engine and the only difference is the AMT box. So, many a times people simply refrain from taking the pains to review a car for only its transmission and 95% of the car otherwise remaining the same. Apart from that, Maruti's way of giving a "Facelift
" is by adding chrome to front and back so that too does not appeal to many.
