Kia Carens vs Maruti Ertiga – Which is the Best MPV?

Maruti Suzuki introduced the updated Ertiga in India. Starting at Rs. 8.35 lakh, ex-showroom, the new 2022 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Facelift is priced. This people mover is an exact competitor of the Kia Carens. Here is a comparison of the new 2022 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and Kia Carens based on specifications.

Kia Carens vs Maruti Ertiga – DIMENSIONS

Length4,540 mm4,395 mm
Width1,800 mm1,735 mm
Height1,800 mm1,690 mm
Wheelbase1,800 mm2,740 mm

These measurements demonstrate that the Kia Carens is larger than the Ertiga in all three dimensions. Additionally, the Kia three-row vehicle has a longer wheelbase, a feature that typically results in extra room for passengers’ legs. Now, since Kia hasn’t disclosed the Carens’ boot size, we can’t determine if it is larger than the 209-liters of boot space available in the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga with all three rows up.
