Petrol Miles MT 1.5-Litr Maruti Suzuki Ertiga: Real vs Claim


How efficient is the new light-hybrid petrol powertrain really? We discovered

  • Ertiga offered three engines: one petrol and two diesels.

  • A petrol machine has been matched with a Suzuki light hybrid technology offered with a 5-speed manual and AT-4 speed.

  • Maruti claims that MT petrol MT can make 19.34 samples.

  • Our real-world tests reveal Maruti Ertiga's city mileage to be 13.4kpl and highway miles to be 16.03kmpl.

The second gen Maruti Ertiga An MPV was launched at the end of 2018 with a new petrol engine. This 1.5-liter K15 Smart Hybrid engine is offered with a 5-speed manual as well as an automatic 4-speed torcor transmission. It is also offered with two diesel engine options: 1.3-liter unit with Smart Hybrid technology and a new 1.5-liter internally developed unit also. The Ertiga is currently valued between Rs 7.45 lakh to Rs 11.21 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

However, with Maruti announcing their plans ax all diesel-powered cars by April 2020, we decided to bring you the real picture of running the petrol-MT Ertiga MPV and its real fuel efficiency figures. Here are the numbers:

The numbers reveal that the alleged efficiency figures of the manufacturer fail to achieve real world test results in city driving and the highway. In the case of city-specific driving, Ertiga petrol-MT is 5 kmpl less efficient than the numbers claimed under a controlled environment.

If you drive in the city mostly, expect this light hybrid petrol to provide about 14kpl. Meanwhile, if your use includes more miles on the highway and less driving in the city, the efficiency figures will go over 15kpl. If you commute your balance of both types of driving environment, the petrol manual can deliver up to 14.59kpl.

Our road test teams drive light foot cars when tested for fuel efficiency, so it is expected that your figures could deviate from our proven figures as fuel efficiency figures also depend on driving style, car and road conditions.
