All 7 occupants is once or twice a month and for holidays but at all other times, it is me who will be driving it to office. So, XUV or Ertiga?
Of course it is Ertiga :-). Why to spend double the money when half can do? XUV is for those who want to load up and travel frequently up the hills and/or have sufficient spare money.

Sorry, read it as "Ertiga is unmistakably an elongated Ritz"

Wow nice pictures. Looks like there is okay space in the 3rd row. Also the seats fold flat liberating lot of space.

A very promising car to look, feel & own with Ultimate combination of Space, flexibility, power & frugality.
Definitely worth a option to consider if its going to be priced in Rs.7-9 lacs for its Diesel version.

Certain points which I noticed.

* No split seat for the third row
* Doesn't look like parts sharing with Swift - Ertiga is all beige while Swift is all black
* I see a beige steering wheel too
* Quite some space on 3rd row?? I see almost "any hatchback kind" of boot space even with the 3rd row in place - check the last pic, I can see two different portions with space in between [a small gap to separate areas].

A 6 seater variant, the middle row with two buckets, would be more mouth watering.

My gut feeling is that the entry variant will be priced just below or around Rs 6lacs.
Yes it is an car worth owning with even for the petrol K14 more tempting.

Yes the boot space appears to be larger than the Swift's.

This would be one car worth owning, smart looking, compact dimensions, spacious, enough boot space to move house and it's a Maruti. Wonder what sort of wait list this is going to see.

True. From the sides it gives a balanced look with the rear end complimenting the Swiftly front unlike the Dezire.

Looks fantastic. Why cant it have Automatic AC though? It looks like a lot of parts are shared with the new Swift - surely they can lift the Auto AC controls too from the same parts bin?

looks good but will be severely underpowered esp at full load of 7. 1.3 diesel will be puny for pulling this barge. Third row looks like it is there in name only, the third row windows are claustrophobic. Though the entire thing looks well put together. This car would have a good initial response before the hype dies down as drivability constraints come into focus.

I'm actually liking this! I'm not sure if the 1.3 DDIS has been retuned for this but i hope it is. Also, the ACC seems to be missing in the car that as steering mounted controls. Does that mean that even the top variant ZXI/ZDI will not have ACC? Any news on the airbags?

Wonderful overall package the last row is best suited for 2 & needn't be good for taller persons, but there appears more boot space than Xylo, etc. Can be boon for extended family trips & soccer mamas. Worth buying if top end is around 9.5 lacs OTR (Delhi).
