This is a bit OT: but since you mentioned it, would suggest that you take baby steps towards handling the car since you are moving from a sub90 bhp to a 150+ bhp 2000cc vehicle that is about 2 classes above in terms of power/ performance and is pretty hefty at 1400 kg odd.
1)The most important one is to carefully calibrate your accelerator inputs.
2)Never use the left foot at all for any reason.
3) Also donít stomp on the brake pedal . This is a dual- disc brake car and can have a sharper than usual response.
4) Donít get distracted by the infotainment system and other features while driving until you get a handle on the car.
Be careful and make modest expectations of your own capability for a month or so. Wish you many happy and memorable miles!

I can't comment on the Ertiga, but I own a Dec 2020 manufactured XL6.

The compliment I have received most frequently from my friends and family who have been in the XL6 with me on drives is that they felt that the vehicle was very silent.

My wife and I feel the same. For comparison, the other cars which I have driven extensively are Ford Fiesta petrol, VW Polo petrol and Innova diesel. And XL6 is way more refined than all three.

I wonder if Maruti upgraded the NVH of XL6, because I read at various places the complaint about outside noises percolating through into the cabin. But that's not been my experience at all.
