Launched – Next Gen Maruti Suzuki Ertiga
Maruti Suzuki has launched the second generation Ertiga in India today. The introductory prices for the base petrol variant starts at Rs 7.44 lakh while the diesel starts at Rs 8.84 lakh.
The Ertiga has been given a makeover with a wide grille and projector headlamps, which resemble the Innova Crysta. The design is now slightly more sculpted and not angular like that of its predecessor with flowing lines. Even the rear gets large, Volvo-ish taillights. Overall, the Ertiga will surely appeal to family car buyers and not just fleet owners. On the inside too, it gets a sculpted dash with wooden inserts and chrome accents and a leather wrapped steering wheel. The 17.8cm touchscreen infotainment display is integrated with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Mirrorlink as well. There is more room on the inside, thanks to the larger dimensions. The third row is 50:50 split and recline function.
Based on the Heartect platform which was first seen on the Baleno, the Ertiga is now lighter than before. In terms of the engines, the Ertiga comes with the tried an tested 1.3-litre Multijet diesel sourced from Fiat. Thanks to its variable geometry turbo, the Ertiga makes 88bhp and 200Nm. The 1.5-litre, K15 petrol motor is sourced from the Ciaz though and makes 103bhp and 138Nm. You also get mild hybrid tech in form of idle start/stop function and a lithium-ion battery that assists accelerate and also regenerates energy while braking.
The Ertiga is the most affordable seven seater MPV in the country and is positioned below the Mahindra Marazzo, Tata Hexa and Toyota Innova Crysta. With the brand new makeover, the Ertiga has become more desirable than ever and should appeal to family car buyers and not just fleet owners.
