Hi friends

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.

Thanks friend,

i compare both my cars & i am surprised that Ertiga having only 200 mm more length(when i park them side by side they looks almost same in length) but still have lot more space as compare to Dzire.

That's a great figure! 17 for local city traffic is too good!
I get 15-16kmpl in Coimbatore city traffic and 19-21kmpl on highways depending on speed and driving patterns. Have you done any highway drive yet? If not yet, try maintaining speed at 2000rpm just at the turbo boost point of 80 kmph constantly and see the overall mileage figure rise drastically. The display will show 30kmpl in real time efficiency.
