What do you guys think Maruti Suzuki Etriga will compete with or it doesn't as it is creating a new segment? by john on April 12, 2012July 5, 2012 asked in 4 answers Rishabh P Nair answers: The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is a great value for money car. We drove the petrol Ertiga with Maruti Suzuki’s new 1.4 litre engine and it was a breeze. It’ll likely shake up the entire market all cars between Rs.5.89 lakh and Rs.8.45 lakh is under direct threat. It does create an all new segment and we can hope to see more such niche segments in India in the future. Babychen Mathew answers: The pricing means that the Ertiga is an alternative to every car in that price range. It is in most ways a car – so you can think about it as an alternative to cars ranging from Dzire, SX4, verna, Sunny, verito, linea and vento… etc etc. Say you want a reliable car, with the freedom to occasionally take 7 people, or put a lot of luggage inside – then it will make sense to even sedan buyers! There are families buying the Innova for its space – they can consider it too. Roshun Povaiah answers: The Ertiga is creating a new segment, but will compete directly with sedans more than MPVs like the Xylo or Innova. It will appeal to Nissan Sunny, Maruti SX4 and probably even top-end Dzire buyers.
