2. Maruti Suzuki Ertiga

First debuted in India in 2012, the Ertiga is one of the most well-known MPVs with the Indian auto buyers. With approximately 65000 units sold a year, the Ertiga has received a facelifted version and become a real looker which can provide comfortable seats for every passenger.

In terms of the exterior, the new Ertiga is now underpinned by the Heartec platform which is also adopted in the Baleno and the Swift. The new car now has greater dimensions in terms of its length, width and height, which translates into a spacious cabin for up to 7 passengers. Some other noteworthy exterior features include

  • LED projector headlamps integrated with LED DRLs

  • 15-inch alloy wheels

  • Large boomerang-shaped tail lamps

The interior features which contribute to the safe and pleasant travel experience of the customers include

  • Multi-function driving wheel

  • Large touchscreen infotainment system which supports Android Auto and Apple Carplay connectivity

  • Brand-new instrument cluster

  • Leather-wrapped flat bottom driving wheel

  • AT temperature control

Inside, as mentioned before, the cabin is now more spacious, thanks to the greater dimensions. Though the wheelbase has remained unchanged, the new Ertiga cabin is now roomier since the engine compartment has been moved forward. Equipped with a roof mounted AC, the central seat row is now far more comfortable than its predecessor. But the biggest improvement is in the final seat row, which now comes with a reclining option, offering a comfortable travel experience to the passengers. The boot now is also twice as large as the one on the previous model.

The Maruti Eritga now is available with two engine options. While the 1.5L petrol engine can generate 103 bhp/138Nm and is coupled with a 5-speed MT or a 4-speed AT, the 1.3L DDIS 200 spec diesel unit is good for 89bhp/200Nm and is mated to a manual gearbox.

The Ertiga MPV is priced in the range of Rs 7.44 lakh to Rs 10.9 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

With a glamorous on-road image, an upmarket interior with a spacious cabin and two engine options on offer as well as a competitive price, the Maruti Ertiga deserves to be enlisted as one of the top 7-seater people movers in India.

3. Renault Lodgy

Positioned above the Ertiga is the Renault Lodgy. As regards the exterior, the Lodgy is packed with some features, giving it a “handsome” appearance. These features include but not limited to

The interior features include

The cabin provides the passengers with enough space, all in terms of the elbow or leg room in the first row; head, shoulder and knee room in the second row, and the shoulder and knee room in the final row. The last row can accommodate up to three adults but only two adults for the most convenience. With the last seat row on, the amber boot space measures over 200 litres and can hold small suitcases. However, when the last row is folded, the large weekend luggage for five people can be accommodated easily. When you fold both the second and the third row, you can even store your house in it (just for fun).

The petrol engine option is absent on this MPV. The Lodgy is powered by a 1.5L diesel engine which can produce 108.5bhp at 4000rpm and 245Nm at 1750rpm.
