A longer wheelbase often results in more cabin space. A larger boot allows you to carry more luggage.

Dimension Review

  • Innova is longer than Ertiga by 340mm.
  • Innova is wider than Ertiga by 95mm. The width should certainly help liberate more shoulder room in the Innova.
  • Innova is taller than Ertiga by 105mm. Innova’s ladder frame construction somewhat contributes towards its taller roofline.
  • Innova has a longer wheelbase than Ertiga; by 10mm. Despite a huge difference in length, surprisingly, the wheelbases of the two cars are comparable.
  • Innova has 91 litre more boot space than Ertiga with all 3 rows up and with the last row folded, Innova offers 208 litre more boot space than Ertiga. The difference in length shows up in boot space, which is more usable in the Innova Crysta than the Ertiga. Otherwise, the Ertiga seems to have more efficient packaging for its size than the Innova.
  • Ertiga has 2mm more ground clearance than Innova.

In terms of dimensions, Innova is a larger car compared to Ertiga. So, if size is a measure of road presence for you, then Innova is a better car than Ertiga.

Petrol Automatic Engine Review

  • Innova has a more powerful engine than Ertiga.
  • Innova's engine produces more torque than Ertiga's. Because of Innova’s heavier weight, its torque to weight ratio is only about 16% more than the Ertiga. So, drivability will be better in the Innova but not that much better either.
  • Ertiga automatic is more fuel-efficient than Innova automatic. Most of it boils down to the ladder frame construction, which is considerably heavier but more rugged. So, the fuel efficiency of the Innova Crysta is much lower than the Ertiga.

Innova's engine offers more torque, so it is expected to offer better driveability compared to Ertiga's engine. If you're looking for a car with low running cost then Ertiga will be better since its engine is more fuel-efficient.
