I am confused to choose between Honda BRV and Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, please suggest which one would be a better choice.

Both cars have their own merits and there are multiple parameters to judge which one can be better for you. Here is my take on what to choose between these two:
The design is absolutely subjective, everyone has their own choice but for me the BRV looks more attractive and has a more upmarket appeal, and dimensionally it is lengthier and wider than Ertiga and also has a higher ground clearance.
Talking about the mechanicals, BRV comes in 1.5 liter petrol and diesel engine options and they produces better power than Ertiga’s 1.4 liter petrol and 1.3 liter diesel engines. Though Ertiga is more fuel efficient, it delivers and ARAI mileage of 24.5 kmpl (diesel) and 17.5 kmpl (petrol) Vs BRV’s 21.9 (diesel) and 15.3 (petrol)
Ride and handling of both cars are good where BRV may come excel by small margin. Transmission and clutch calibration is slightly better on the BRV. High speed stability of BRV is also better than Ertiga. I advise you to drive both the cars back to back and it is easy to say that the BRV has a better engine out of the two cars in low-end performance; it has almost negligible turbo lag and gains momentum right from the low-end in a linear manner.
Coming on the interiors, the interior of BRV is more spacious when compared to Ertiga, due to its compact dashboard and thin seats it offers more spacious second and third seats while the third row seat of Ertiga is best suited to kids. However, when we speak of the quality, fit and finish, again the BRV feels a little better compared to Ertiga.
Finally it depends, what you want from your car, if you are looking for better performance, interiors, sitting space then go for BRV and if you are looking for value for money, fuel efficiency, after sale service, low cost maintenance & better resale then go for Ertiga.
That was really nice of you! Your reply to the question is going to benefit hundreds to make a buying decision! It'll appear post moderation on the site
