Ertiga is the most affordable MPV in the comparison

  • Ertiga is the only MPV with mild hybrid capabilities in both petrol and diesel version making it the most efficient one

  • Toyota Innova Crysta is the most powerful and torquiest vehicle out here

  • Ertiga’s feature count is at par with the competition but leaves the rivals behind where the infotainment system is concerned

  • India’s largest carmaker has finally launched the Maruti Ertiga 2018 with prices in the range of Rs 7.44 lakh to Rs 10.90 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It is available in four variants and can be had with either a petrol engine or a diesel unit. The variants include LXi/LDi, VXi/VDi, ZXi/ZDi and ZXi+/ZDi+. Like before, the 2018 Ertiga can also be had with a 4-speed automatic. However, it’s only available on the VXi and ZXi variants this time around. Now that we know what’s on offer, let’s see how the second-gen Maruti Suzuki Ertiga fares against its rivals on paper.

    Maruti Ertiga 2018 Vs Mahindra Marazzo Vs Toyota Innova Crysta And Others: Spec Comparison

    Dimensions

    Longest: Innova Crysta

    Widest: Marazzo

    Tallest: Innova Crysta

    Longest Wheelbase: Renault Lodgy

    Toyota Innova Crysta: Variants Explained

    Like before, the 2018 Maruti Ertiga continues to be the most compact MPV among the cars gathered here. Except for its height, the Maruti lags behind other MPVs in every aspect. However, it stays within touching distance of biggies like the Mahindra Marazzo and the Toyota Innova Crysta. As far as wheelbase is concerned, the Renault Lodgy stays a class apart with 2810mm. However, a long wheelbase doesn’t always guarantee exceptional interior space.

    Most Powerful: Innova Crysta

    Torquiest: Innova Crysta

    Most Efficient: Ertiga

    Just like its predecessor, the 2018 Ertiga once again gets the smallest engine of the lot. However, it matches its direct rivals - the BR-V and Lodgy - in terms of power and torque. The fight for the top three is between the Innova Crysta, Mahindra Marazzo and the Renault Lodgy. That said, when it comes to fuel efficiency, nothing comes close to the Ertiga with its ARAI-claimed figure of 25.47 kmpl.

    Engines (Petrol)

    Most Powerful: Innova Crysta

    Torquiest: Innova Crysta

    Most Efficient: Ertiga   

    When it comes to petrol engines, two of its competitors don’t even get the option of a petrol drivetrain, leaving just the Innova Crysta and the Honda BR-V. Both might trump the Maruti with their higher power and torque but lag way behind in terms of fuel efficiency. Armed with the SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) start/stop technology, the Maruti Ertiga’s fuel efficiency is not just better than its petrol counterparts but also some of their diesel derivatives.

    Features

    Standard Safety:

    The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga gets dual airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child seat mounts and seatbelt pretensioners as standard. However, the top variants of the Ertiga doesn’t get any additional safety goodies, which might prove to be a downer for those looking for a top notch product. That said, it still meets the current standards and in higher automatic variants, even gets electronic stability control and hill hold control. Overall, it matches up with the Renault Lodgy, Mahindra Marazzo and the Honda BR-V in terms of the kit offered. It is only the Toyota Innova Crysta that brings more to the table, including seven airbags, vehicle stability control and hill assist in the higher variants.

    Infotainment

    All the cars mentioned here get an touchscreen infotainment system on higher variants with Bluetooth, USB and AUX connectivity. But it’s only the Ertiga which gets both Apple CarPlay, Android Auto connectivity, voice command and rear parking camera with sensors. The Marazzo and the BR-V get Android Auto and MirrorLink connectivity, respectively.

    Pricing

    The Maruti Ertiga undercuts every one of its competitors by a significant margin. It’s closest rival, the Renault Lodgy, is a diesel-only offering with a significantly higher price tag. So if you are someone looking to ferry your nuclear family around on a budget but don’t want to skimp on features or style, the 2018 Ertiga should definitely be on your list.
