Maruti Ertiga vs Honda Mobilio

Cricket is so overdone. There is a tournament, seemingly, every month. Even hardcore cricket fans have had enough of the game. Regardless of the new variations, it has become a monotonous affair. Football, on the other hand, is gaining ground, but it will be some time before we can find 11 footballers good enough to represent a country of 1.2 billion at a global level. I don’t know about you, but I’ve always thought wrestling, or kusti, one of the world’s oldest sports and one that has been popular in India since ancient times, hasn’t been given its due.

Neither cricket nor wrestling has anything to do with the cars featured here. But, the Maruti Ertiga and the Honda Mobilio, the Japanese company’s latest take on the people-mover, are, like kusti – very Indian, very desi. The Ertiga and the Mobilio are both based on their hatchback platforms: the Swift and the Brio, respectively. But, the platforms have been worked on extensively to cater to the needs of an MPV. MPVs that have been tailored for Indian needs.
