The Chevrolet Enjoy is the latest entrant to the MUV club which is seeing a lot of action lately. The Maruti Ertiga is already enjoying huge success and why not? Its a Maruti after all. But now comes the Enjoy which is quite similar to the Ertiga, an important fact being that it is also built on a car like monoque. They both seat 7 people as well. So my question is: If you had to choose between the two..which would you go for and why?

Attaching basic specs of both the cars in question:

First things first. I do not like both.

But, if at all I am to choose between only these two, I will go in for Enjoy.

Two reasons.

It is cheaper to maintain a Chevy car in India than a Maruti car.

Enjoy looks like a true MUV and looks better than the rival LUV.

First I thought its a Spin Vs Ertiga thread, later found its Enjoy.

In no way they both are comparable. Its like comparing Apples with Pineapples. Its target customers are also going to be entirely different lot.

The only place both could be compared is FE, in which also R-III would have an upper hand.

For Self Driving, Handling, Power, Looks, Interiors, Resale, Car-like, Ease of driving, Occasional 7 Seater is Ertiga.

For lower real estate price, its Enjoy.. Being a Chevy, Enjoy might take an upper hand in Ride Quality.

I depends on the overall package. If the Enjoy comes with the 3yr maintenance package then thats definitely a plus.

I haven't sat in either so cannot compare first hand on space, comfort etc. despite there being online reviews.

Having to choose, on the face of it, it will be the Ertiga - known quantity, looks are decent, proven engine, good coverage of dealerships and reliability (I personally own a Wagon R which goes on and on without complaining while other cars have come and gone from our family).

Sometimes looking at the Ertiga makes me feel the Enjoy is a handsome car & then having a second look at the Enjoy makes me think " how can this be handsome ???? " and again it sways back in Ertiga & goes on .........

Both are so boring to look at ! Even if practicality rules in some minds, but practicality cant be this boring to go for these cars :P

Though Enjoy is a super good package, some notable mistakes are done.

1. No split seats combined with No Boot space with IIIrd row on. So can't carry luggage even with 6 Persons on board.

2. Centre row not on Rails. So getting into IIIrd row needs some training from local Circus.

3. No Golden Bow tie in Steering, hardly 100 bucks but looks 100times better.

As going by Autocar India video review on Chevrolet Enjoy,

I'm sure this car will make definitely make significant impact on the lower end of MPV market, fighting with Ertiga & Evalia.

Definitely this car is having its own sweet set of pros, instead biggest Pros, like:

-Good looks, clearly against Evalia while subjective infront of Ertiga but still it manages.

-Acres of Interior space & well-bolstered seats.

-Decent interiors with adequate Interior quality, i'm sure it'll the trump card for its smart pricing.

-Spacious & Comfortable all 3-row seating.

-Frugal & adequately powerful 1.3 Diesel engine(sub 40-100kmph in less than 20 seconds, quite good).

-Signature GM-Chevrolet ride quality.

I'm sure this car will be going to come with 3-year maintenance program from day1 of its launch & that's again will be Trump card for its marketing here.

Enjoy will definitely make GM-Chevrolet to enjoy some success in MPV segment but still absence of Spin will be felt always.

So far without seeing Enjoy...without TD it would be simple for me to answer Ertiga...but if I have to buy a proper 7 seater which can accomodate my family's 7 people with comfort...then I will not go for Ertiga at all because it lacks comfort for the 3rd and lack of leg room.

So, I think we should wait until Enjoy comes to the road.

Notice one thing, all these similar vehicles have names starting with an "E"

Ertiga

Evalia

Enjoy

Nice catch librankur :)

I am sure 50 percent of the people know that the Enjoy, although throughly re-enginnered, is still a Chinese Wuling product. Secondly, GM India has left some goof-ups such as no-rails for the middle row seats. Come on guys, all know how tall the Chinese folks are (no offence!). Secondly, It looks a bit like the Xylo to me, especially from the rear three quarter.

Also, another major trump card will be the pricing. If they price it, as estimated by Autocar, then only it will make some impact in MPV sales, else it will just be "there" in the market like the Evalia.

I hope NIssan refreshes the Evalia soon for our market and either gives it more equipment, or lowers the price.

Giving more equipments is never an option because its competitor is Innova. The price needs to be shed atleast 1.5L to have a decent presence.

Out of Chinese Trio, GM India has brought in, Enjoy looks more practical and promising.

The car has more things on offer than its competition.

We all know it has Chinese connections, but Sail twins now helped in changing perception about those Chinese cars.

Also this Chinese connection, in future, may bring in facelift which is currently in testing phase in its native land China.

This facelift is comprehensive from the inside and freshened up things inside the cabin (one of the drawback of Enjoy is ageold design of dash)

Hope this rolls the good numbers for GM India.

Expected May launch for this CN100 , Expected price band 6-8L

I see this one to be a bigger threat to Xylo than the Ertiga,the price will be the deal breaker /maker here.

As said here , the Chinese influence will keep the costs low much like the Sail duos .

Much better looking than the Evalia for sure ,that has bombed for sure , no where to be seen.Just 1369 units sold since launch till last sales report.

Saw a DEMO Enjoy today outside a dealership.

Meanwhile, someplace esle Maruti is getting ready to launch its Ertiga Feliz to counter ENJOY , much like the launch of the Regal edition of Dzire after Amaze launch.

Nothing much to write about could only manage to see it in parts, too much activity around it , Vehicle was completely surrounded by a crowd of onlookers.

I initially thought something bad had happened.

Nothing much to write about could only manage to see it in parts, too much activity around it , Vehicle was completely surrounded by a crowd of onlookers. In my opinion much better looking than the Ertiga for sure.

I initially thought something bad had happened at the spot.

Here is something else that i am sure you would be knowing.

The Chevy Enjoy could come within an introductory price band of Rs.6.5 to 9 lakh.

The Chevrolet Enjoy would be offered in both petrol and diesel engines. The Enjoy petrol is expected to be powered by a 1.4 litre engine, whereas its diesel trim comes fitted with a 1.3 litre Multijet oil burner.

Chevy could be assembling the Enjoy MPV at its Ranjangaon based manufacturing facility that would help in keeping its pricing market competitive.

Thanks for the update librankur. The engines will be the same that do duty in the Sail I guess. I hope the pricing you say is correct because it sounds competitive.

Anyways I will try and update with pictures and details live from the launch event tomorrow/

Which one would you suggest out of the above two in terms of economy, comfort, and maintainance costs in the same order of preference. the car would be used in the hills for sight seeing purpose and occasional outstation tours.
