Ertiga – The new Life Utility vehicle from Maruti Suzuki


Ertiga – Industry’s first Life Utility Vehicle (LUV) was launched on 12th April 2012 by car market leader Maruti Suzuki India Limited. Ertiga has paved the way for Maruti’s entry into the UV (Utility Vehicle) category, a feat much awaited by Maruti fans across the nation. Ertiga has strengthened the product portfolio of Maruti and has also created a whole new “Life Utility Vehicle” segment in the market at a very attractive price. That too at a time when MPV’s (Multi Purpose Vehicles) have been ruling the Indian market with a 20% growth on an year to year basis.


The Toyota Innova, the Mahindra Xylo and the Chevrolet Tavera are its closest competitors, with Ertiga definitely having the advantage of price as well as the being from the stable of Maruti.

Launched in both petrol and diesel variants, the ex showroom price varies Rs.5.89 Lacs and at Rs.8.45 Lacs.

The petrol variant is powered by the new and powerful K-series 1373 cc VVT engine delivering 95 ps power at 6000 rpm with a torque of 130 nm @ 4000 rpm.
The diesel variant is powered by the reliable 1248 cc DDIS VGT engine delivering 90 ps power at 4000 rpm with a torque of 200 nm @ 1750 rpm.

The mileage in petrol and diesel is 16.02 kmpl and 20.77 kmpl respectively.

Right from childhood have been a technology buff. As a child used to take a screw driver and open all of my toys just to see what ticks inside them. My parents once got me a wooden rocking horse with just four wheels and nothing else to open, thinking that they would finally get some rest. Next day the wheels were being removed to check the shaft principle used in the making. This craziness just stuck with me as I grew up and got interested in all the latest technological marvels that just keep springing up everyday. Used to blow all of pocket money just to keep myself updated with the latest walkman, which was one of the most interesting inventions paving the way for modern mp3 players and other portable music devices which are much more than just music devices now. This site is just a step to ease that geek in me. To share and let you share the latest gadgets, news and anything related to technology. Lets enjoy this feeling together.
