Maruti Ertiga launch this April 11, Xylo, Innova, Tavera to face the heat

It is time for Toyota Innova, Chevrolet Tavera Neo3 and recently launched Mahindra Xylo to hasten their sales efforts as the Maruti Ertiga MPV is finally coming on April 11. This Maruti MPV along with the upcoming Maruti SUV XA Alpha are seen to bring the breakthrough for the company. The MPV on the other hand will be more fortunate being a family mover. India is a land where joint families still exist happily compared to the rest of the world where nuclear families have broken the balance of the societal bonds. With a seating capacity for seven people, Ertiga MPV will be able to offer Indians, the ease of going to places together. The Maruti Ertiga price as per reports will be decided after the budget.

Maruti Ertiga has been in anticipation since its unveil at the January Auto Expo 2012 held in New Delhi. It was then every car critic thought that now India will get its own true MPV. However, Ertiga will have to face tough competition posed by Toyota Innova which is also the segment leader followed by new Mahindra Xylo that has recently got much appreciation with the launch of its new version. The Chevrolet Tavero Neo3 is basically preferred by the taxi cab as well and it seems to counter Ertiga sales as well.

The Maruti Ertiga launch on April 11 will largely depend on the Union budget as it is expected that the government will be increasing tax on diesel cars and if this happens the Ertiga price will be affected. Presently, as per the experts the Ertiga should be priced between Rs 7 lakh to Rs 9 lakh. This is a price range which is well below other MPVs and thus Ertiga will have an edge in sales. Hoped to be launched in petrol and diesel options, the Ertiga will be an offering over and above the segment handled by Maruti Omni and Maruti Eeco. The diesel Ertiga is expected to return a mileage of over 20 kmpl while the petrol one will also be quite frugal.
