Finally a decent looking vehicle from Maruti which holds immense potential to rake up a huge wait list provided its priced right. It looks Very well proportioned for a UV. Nice to see such designs coming from Maruti.

Presently Swift + Ritz + Dzire + SX4 sells around 35 K units monthly. Assuming 80 - 85% of them are Diesels, the total Diesel number stands at 28 - 30K. So the extra capacity that can be allowed for Ertiga Diesel will be just 5 - 6K units monthly.

Add to that, the new DZire CS launch. Assuming that current DZire and new DZire CS will be sold side-by-side, they may need another 5K for CS Diesels. What will Maruti do other than making their customers waiting and waiting?
Not a bad problem to have ie demand exceeds the supply, may be the Dezire CS will eat into the Dezires demand and if that happens and they have a bandwidth of 5-6 K engines per month and Ertiga sees that kind of sales it will make the day for Maruti at 6 K per month it will be the best selling MUV/MPV far exceeding the Innova and the XYLO.

A Hondaesque discount for their petrol models will definitely not hurt customers ! What say?

That's what I also wonder. Even Honda gives such a huge discount, why can't Maruti do that?

Seeing Ertiga and Innova side-by-side, we can clearly tell the difference - one is hatch car-like, and the other is MUV-like.

Fit & Finish seems to be of top notch including both Bodywork & Plastics.

The Ertiga along with the EcoSport is on my shortlist of "Want to Buy".
Really looking forward to the launches of both these in the next few days.
Looks like it will be the Ertiga as the EcoSport is more than a year away!

And this info is really useful as I am looking to book either one as soon as bookings open.
Thanks Ranc.

Regarding driveability, which one is he referring to? petrol or diesel or both have good driveability?

What does he say about the ride comfort over bad roads? I hope they have not made it too stiff.

He drove a diesel. I guess both of them will have comparable power close to 90 bhp.

Do you mean the Ertiga Diesel pricing starts at 6L?

BTW, short rear overhang compared to Innova means less bouncy ride than Innova in the third row.

.
No, I didnt mean that at all, I think the Petrol will start from 6.0 lakhs. He didnt mention that the diesel will start at 6 Lakhs what he said and I am quoting is "The pricing will start from 6 lakhs and will go upto 8 lakhs".

For sure. A 7-seater Innova-like Maruti label will always excite the large number of families, for whom, a car is basically a six-letter word -- M.A.R.U.T.I.

Eagerly awaiting a 5-star road test of the Ertiga from the moderators. Am also hoping that the Eeco gets a 3-4 cylinder diesel engine in the near future. A diesel Eeco could well be a poor man's Ertiga.

General question:
Why isnt there a brake pad on the disc brake behind the alloy?!
