Maruti is currently offering huge discounts on the Maruti Ertiga, With an effective base ex-showroom price of Rs 5.81 lakh, the MPV is now even cheaper than a Swift VXi
The Maruti Ertiga has been one of the highest selling MPV since a long time now. Thanks to the fuel-efficient engine, decent cabin space, good looks, the Ertiga has a lot going for it. However, Maruti will soon replace with a new model, which, in all probability, will be significantly costlier. In order to clear the inventories, the Ertiga is currently being sold with huge discounts. With a discount of up to Rs 50,100, the MPV’s base variant is now available at an ex-showroom price of just Rs 5.81 lakh.
In comparison, the VXi variant of the Maruti Swift hatchback costs Rs 5.89 lakh Ex-Showroom New Delhi. All this means that you can get yourself a small MPV for less than what the mid-level trim of the Swift costs. This is simply because of the various offers that are currently available on the company’s high-selling MPV.
The Ertiga is currently available in three fuel variants – Petrol, CNG, and Diesel. These get a cash discount of Rs 15,000, Rs 10,000, and Rs 20,000 respectively. All the variants get an exchange bonus of Rs 30,000. There’s also a corporate discount of Rs 5,100. This takes the total savings to Rs 50,100 for the petrol variant, Rs 45,100 for the CNG variant, and Rs 60,100 for the diesel variant.
Currently, prices of the Maruti Ertiga start at Rs 6.31 lakh. However, after a reduction of Rs 50,100 from the ex-showroom price of the petrol-powered LXi variant, the effective cost is reduced to approximately Rs 5.81 lakh. In comparison, the Maruti Swift VXi costs Rs 5.89 lakh. Hence, the Ertiga ends up being cheaper than its much smaller hatchback cousin.
The Maruti Ertiga is currently available with a 1.4-litre K-series petrol engine that outputs a maximum power of 92 PS and a peak torque of 130 Nm. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic and it delivers ARAI claimed fuel economy of 17.5 kmpl while the diesel engine variant is powered by a 1.3-litre, turbocharged motor that offers 90 PS and 200 Nm and delivers 24+ kmpl.
It comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission. It also gets the SHVS mild-hybrid technology. While the current Ertiga will soon go out of production, we feel that it’s actually a good time for all those who need a 7-seater family car but are on a budget to put their money on this MPV.
