Mahindra has been ruling the Indian SUV segment for quite long now. Not wanting to rest on its laurels, the company has decided to target the mid-size car segment through the Mahindra Quanto (Mini Xylo). This mini-SUV is the smaller version of the Mahindra Xylo and will seat 5 people. While its launched is scheduled for sometime later this year, there are high expectations from the car. With a Rs.5Lakh+ price tag, the Mahindra Quanto (Mini Xylo) sounds like an exciting option for those who want a SUV but can’t afford the real thing!
Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is a MPV or multi people vehicle that has been riding high on its success ever since its launch. Clocking more than 33,000 bookings with a month, the Ertiga is not just a strong contender to the Mahindra Mini Xylo, but also Toyota Innova, and most vehicles in the Rs. 5lakh to Rs. 10lakh bracket. While the Ertiga is available in both diesel and petrol engine variants, it is less powerful than the Xylo or the Mini Xylo. Check out the comparison table below to know the main differences.

|Engine Size||1.5L 3-cylinder CRDI diesel engine||1.3 L diesel engine/ K-14B, 1.4 L petrol engine|

The Verdict: Both, Maruti Ertiga and Mahindra Mini Xylo are expected to fight tooth and nail to get a slice of the sub-4 meter cars pie. Marketed as the LUV car, the Ertiga benefits from Maruti’s extensive sales and service network, while the Mahindra Mini Xylo that has the punch line “small happy legs,” is marketing itself as a spacious car with power and style. Ultimately, the choice is yours!
