@ashwin bantwal You were planning to buy the Enjoy. What do you think about the prices?
Isnt the diesel version a bit underpowered? Why didn’t they go with the 90bhp version of this engine with the VGT. Its a 7 seater afterall.
It does seem a bit underpowered on paper. And given the weight it has to pull, it won’t be really quick. But I think the focus was more on fuel economy rather than on power. Will let you know after a full road test of this next week.
I feel like the petrol version of this vehicle can be easily converted to LPG/CNG as it has good power!!!
Looks like it’s here to do just the right job, design conscious people would be waiting for Hyundai to come up with one, so does this cost less than the Innova because it is smaller as well? Around the same size as the Ertiga? Cheers.
Even without the hike, less than 1000 kms a month, petrol is better. The diesel variant needs about 1000kms per month just to stay at par considering that you need to pay a higher insurance premium, higher costs for regular maintenance and lose on the interest you could have earned from the capital price differential. Anything below 1000 kms a…[Read more]
petrol ertiga is more refined and powerful then diesel. u will enjoy driving it, b’coz u will as if u r driving a petrol sedan like dzire when u lower the drivers seat level and will give u suv feeling when u up the seat level. go for top end it has array of features.
Thanks a lot for your prompt response, What is the real worl mileage of Ertiga Petrol, can I expect around 13KMPL on higways? since my drive will be mostly on highways.
you can expect more than that on a highway
Go for petrol. You can expect around 15kmpl on the highway, and 12kmpl in city.
Thanks Shreyans, It’s amazing mileage… Today I have seen Chevy’ Enjoy, it looks bigger than Ertiga, Do you think it will be good to wait untill it launches? or shall I go with Ertiga? The test vehicle driver was claiming that it will launched by Mid of feb. seems to be Chevy also offering around the same mileage. do you thing it’s worth to wait?…[Read more]
Enjoy promises more space than the Ertiga, but overall refinement and quality are not expected to be as good. I will suggest the Ertiga, as I believe the Enjoy will find many takers among the taxi operators.
How about the maintenance cost? does it give more trouble while the age increase…?
Jayaprakash these Toyota engines are built to last.. They are not too pricey either..( Had that been the case you would not have seen soo many Toyotas being used for Cab services across the Globe.
I can spend upto 6.5 Lacs
Wagon R has a smaller engine as compared to the others. Its basically designed as a city car. There are better options for long trips. Firstly, for the expected running, which is rather high, consider a diesel over a petrol. Among the cars you have listed, Figo is the best to drive but I find the driver seat rather low and uncomfortable over long…[Read more]
I would suggest you opt for a diesel Figo as it’s best suited for long drives out of all the cars you have mentioned. Although you will be sitting quite low and people have had issues with its low ground clearance. If you want a better driving position then the Vista and Ritz diesel are also good options.
Hi will suggest to take a test drive of Honda brio. The car is very peppy to drive and Driving position is also good. Also you can get the fully loaded version in that budget.
Thanks for all your comments…. I just took test drive of liva and figo…comparing both, figo has quality interiors where liva lacks, still we can consider as it’s comes from toyota, space wise liva is good. But in the short ride, I am unable to decide which has best engine, any thoughts on this?
Hey Jaya, I think economics is also to be considered in terms of least downtime of the car not just initial payout. You should consider a diesel Swift, you wont regret the decision. Superb to drive for long journey, nice reliable torque (both Ritz and Swift use the same engine), for long drives the new Swift is very comfortable in terms of usable…[Read more]
Vista is VFM… very spacious…
With its highway manners, steering feedback and ride quality, the Punto easily outclasses all hatchbacks for long distance touring. The Swift and the Figo are a close next in competition. I do not think the Liva and the Brio or other “small” hatchbacks are any competition for the “big boys” like Figo, Punto, Fabia, Polo or the Swift. The i20 and…[Read more]
hi jayaprakash, My suggestion would be Figo, its highly under-rated car, try picking the basic diesel one, as yu planning a 1400Km ride often..diesel car is a must.. n its cheaper than the maruti swift.. yet has a very refined engine.. only negative is the torque, i.e ya initial pick up is goin to suffer a lil,, but the car on the whole is best…[Read more]
I OWN VISTA BUT I SUGGEST YOU TO GO FOR FIGO….
