Maruti Suzuki Ertiga returns with new features

Life Style

The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is all set to get a mid-cycle update that is slated to launch later this month. The carmaker has officially opened bookings for the MPV today and you can visit the Arena dealerships or Maruti Suzuki’s website to book the new Ertiga with a deposit of ₹ 11,000.

Maruti Suzuki has confirmed that the new Ertiga will come equipped with a new K-series 1.5-litre Dual VVT engine, corroborating our previous report. It also said the MPV will ditch the outdated 4-speed automatic gearbox it currently comes with, in favour of a new 6-speed automatic gearbox that will feature paddle-shifters. The new Ertiga will also be offered with an S-CNG version for the better-kitted ZXi trim.

The new MPV is an improvement over the current model and comes with a 7-inch SmartPlay Pro touchscreen infotainment system with the ‘Suzuki Connect’ connected car tech.

On the design front, not a lot is expected to change with the new Ertiga. The main change will be the new grille design that is similar to the one seen on the new Baleno.

Once launched, the new Maruti Suzuki Ertiga will face off against the likes of the Kia Carens, Mahindra Marazzo and even face some competition from the updated version of its plusher sibling — the XL6.

Maruti Suzuki plans to launch six new models by mid-2022. These include the new Ertiga and updated XL6 with the Baleno CNG, new Vitara Brezza, and DualJet-equipped Ignis and S-Presso. The carmaker is also working on an all-new Creta-rivalling midsize SUV that is being co-developed with Toyota and is expected to launch later this year. The much-awaited Jimny is expected to come to Maruti Suzuki showrooms sometime next year.
