There is very little choice among affordable MPV cars in India.
There are very few MPV cars that give good mileage.
But there is a 7-seater car from Maruti which is flying flags in mileage.
Best 7-Seater Family Car: SUV is best for big family. But if you want to buy a good car for the purpose of traveling with the family, then this requirement is fulfilled by the Multi Purpose Vehicle ie MPV. Although there are many brands of 7-seater MPV cars available in the market, but there are very few cars that offer the best combination of space, mileage and power in a low price.
Today we are going to tell you about such a car which is so less expensive to drive that many people became wanderers after buying it. We are talking about Maruti’s 7-seater MPV Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, which is being liked by people for its better features and space as well as mileage.
What is special in Maruti Ertiga?
The company offers Maruti Ertiga in the budget MPV segment. Its ex-showroom price in Delhi ranges between Rs 8.64 lakh to Rs 13.08 lakh. The most important thing about Maruti Ertiga is its mileage. In this, the company is giving the option of both petrol and CNG. Its mileage in petrol is 20.3 kmpl while in CNG it can easily give you a mileage of 26.11 km/kg.
If you are a travel freak and plan trips every few months, then the Maruti Ertiga will be very light on your pocket. Many people prefer to go on long trips with this car. Because of this, the demand for Ertiga is high in the transport segment as well.
engine and gearbox
The Maruti Ertiga gets a 1.5-litre K15C Smart Hybrid petrol engine that produces 102bhp of maximum power and 136.8Nm of torque. This engine is available in both 5-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmission options. Its CNG variant has been made available in a 5-speed manual gearbox. In CNG mode, this car generates power of 87bhp and torque of 121.5Nm.
Even in terms of looks and design, Ertiga is no less. It gives the feel of a big SUV when driven. At the same time, it also gives good road presence on the road. Up front, the Ertiga gets a large grille and wide bumper with projector headlights, fog lamps and chrome accents on the grille. Its interior is quite spacious and you will get the feel of a big car as soon as you sit down. Maruti Ertiga is a car with 3-Star Safety Rating (GNCAP).
Is there a better option than Triber?
Let us tell you that if you want to buy a 7-seater car, then you will get Renault Triber at a lower price than Ertiga. But in this you will definitely feel a decrease in power with more passengers as the Triber’s engine generates only 72 PS power. If your budget is 8-10 lakh rupees, then Ertiga will definitely prove to be a good family car for you.
