Maruti India has recently launched a new car Maruti Ertiga in Indian Car Market, the Ertiga also have a Global debut here. The Ertiga is launched in MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle) car segment with its 7 seater space capability. Although Maruti has mainly targeted this car for domestic car owners and create an entirely new segment in Indian car market.
Maruti officials called it LUV-Life Utility Vehicle in its Marketing campaign. Ertiga is tagged as great Indian family car and is borrowed its name from Indonesian language in which Ertiga means Three Rows. It has 2-3-2 seating arrangement. With the launch of Ertiga, now Maruti has presence in all car segments.
The car has to compete with Toyota Innova, Mahindra Xylo etc., although they are already Major Player in the market, considering they have larger in size, load carrying space and power. We are not impressed by its storage space in rear side, its is equivalent to some of Hatchback Cars which is not suitable for MPV. The music controls are mounted on steering wheel also. This new MPV car will be priced between Rs 5,89,000 to Rs 8,45,000 (New Delhi ex-showroom price).
