Maruti Suzuki has finally brought in the new-gen Ertiga for the price of Rs 7.44 lakhs. It is slightly more expensive than the older model but it gets a whole new design. It moves to a new modular platform and compared to the older car the new Ertiga is also more upmarket. The Maruti MPV debuts a new petrol engine which also comes with automatic transmission as an option. So let us have a detailed look at the new-gen Ertiga through our picture gallery.
Appearance wise, the new Ertiga adapts a whole new design. The fascia gets a new grille which uses horizontal louvres with chrome inserts.
The new grille is flanked by sleeker headlamps which houses projector units. Meanwhile, the front bumper is also nicely sculpted.
In the profile, a welcome edition is a floating roof. The MPV is slightly bigger than before, measuring 4395x1735x1690mm, but it has retained its wheelbase.
The new Ertiga has moved to the Heartect platform, thus making it lighter than before. The newly-designed 15-inch alloy wheels get 185/65 section tyres.
The rear appearance is enhanced with L-shaped taillights which extends up to the D-pillar. There is also a chrome strip at the back with a revised bumper.
The interior space of the Ertiga has also increased thus making the new Ertiga even more practical. The boot space is now 209 litres compared to 135 litres of the older car.
The dashboard layout is new and similar to the international model. The flat bottom steering wheel adds a sporty touch to the modern cabin.
The twin-pod instrument cluster is a step up over older car, while the wooden finish all around the cabin makes it appear more premium.
The centre console gets a 6.8-inch touchscreen found elsewhere in the Maruti range. For the first time, the cabin gets ventilated cup-holders.
On the safety front, the Ertiga was always a feature loaded car. In addition to that, the Ertiga now has the speed alert feature from the Ciaz along with passenger seatbelt warning.
Maruti offers dual-front airbags and ABS with EBD and brake assist as standard equipment along with ISOFIX and rear parking sensors across all variants.
Debuting under the hood is the new K15 petrol engine producing 103bhp and 138Nm. It comes with either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission.
The diesel, on the other hand, is the tried and tested 1.3-litre DDiS unit producing 90bhp and 200Nm which is offered with a five-speed manual only.
Both engines now come with Maruti’s SHVS system as standard offering. This hybrid tech includes a stop-start function and some additional pulling power for the engine.
