Let’s find out.

MPVs
Prices (ex-showroom, New Delhi)
Maruti Suzuki Ertiga
Rs 7.55 lakh to Rs 11.21 lakh
Renault Lodgy
Rs 8.63 lakh to Rs 12.12 lakh
Mahindra Marazzo
Rs 10.35 lakh to Rs 14.77 lakh
Maruti Suzuki XL6
Rs 9.5 lakh to Rs 11 lakh (expected)


Maruti Suzuki Ertiga:  BUY if you are looking for a budget option or specifically a petrol-auto combo or even a CNG option in the segment.

The Ertiga is a popular MPV in the segment and that is no fluke. It delivers exceptional value for money and has improved over the first-gen Ertiga in all aspects including cabin space and features. What’s more, it is available in a petrol-auto combo and is backed by Maruti’s service network, which is present a stone’s throw away from practically anywhere. The icing on the cake is that it is the least expensive option in its segment and can also be had with a CNG kit fitted from the factory.
