- Ertiga 1.3-diesel variant discontinued owing to non-compliance with upcoming BS-VI norms
- The model will continue to be available with 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engine options
Maruti Suzuki has silently discontinued the 1.3-litre diesel variant of the Ertiga MPV. The model will now be available with two engine options including a 1.5-litre DDiS 225 diesel engine and a BS-VI compliant K15B petrol engine.
The 1.3-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine on the Maruti Ertiga which was sourced from Fiat, has been discontinued as the motor does not comply with the upcoming BS-VI emission norms that will come into effect beginning 1 April 2020. The 1.5-litre DDiS diesel engine that currently powers the Ertiga is capable of producing 94bhp at 4,000 rpm and 225Nm between 1,500-2,500 rpm. This engine is available only with a six-speed manual transmission. We have driven the new 1.5-litre diesel engine and to read our review, you can click here.

This unit with mild hybrid technology is capable of producing 103bhp at 6,000 rpm and 138Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm. Transmission options on the petrol variant include a five-speed manual unit and a four-speed automatic unit.
