    Ertiga was here and will remain here. By comparison ertiga looks stylish – exterior as well as interior looks. Whereas mobilio has very good diesel engine and big “H”. Both have pros and cons. Mobilio must price itself equal to ertiga to gain interest and buyers to attract. Otherwise we Indians always go for looks and cheaper options-and then that option will be ertiga. Incase ertiga decided to raise prices-it will be like hitting own popularity.

    Mobilio must be prices very near to ertiga in petrol as well as diesel option to get a big leap in sales.
