Its Xylo for me. Because I perosnally think that Ertiga will be best suited for 5 people and occasionally 7. Plus the power under the hood is lesser than Xylo. In Xylo Lotzzzzz of space. But yes we cannot forget the Maruti's ASS, resale value, and good mileage. But then it is individual's choice on what they need. :-)
I dint like the Ertiga. It looks too flimsy & the puny 1.3 motor (for a 7 seater) just does not cut in for me. Also, I feel it lacks the width to be a proper 7/8 seater. It looks like a bloated Ritz to me. Also, I feel the Ertiga looks like a van whereas the Xylo looks like an MUV. So, its the Xylo for me.
Ertiga is absolutely no competition to the mighty Xylo, however refined and better handling the Ertiga may be. Xylo in my opinion is a full size UV while Ertiga is a compact UV which should rather give competition to the upcoming mini-Xylo.
In any case, I would have opted for Xylo, Ertiga to me looks a station wagon update of SX4 with near identical dimensions along with Ritz-ish headlight cluster. It should be categorized into a different segment of compact and mini UVs like Rio, mini-Xylo, and the Ecosport.
i didnt saw ertiga on road till now so lets wait about its onroad performance and views of the owners who will buy it.talking of xylo.........i think xylo is now even better in looks then its previous versions because the front grill is made more wider and it gives a perfect looks to this vehicle and i think there is no need to talk about the power and performance of xylo.every body knows it.
