Maruti Suzuki Ertiga 1.5 diesel spied ahead of the official launch

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga 1.5 diesel spied ahead of the official launch

-    The new 1.5-litre DDiS 225 diesel engine will be launched with the new-gen Ertiga.

-    Expected to go on sale either late this month or early next month.

-    To be mated with a six-speed manual transmission. 

After the Ciaz, Maruti Suzuki is likely to plonk the new in-house developed diesel engine in the new-generation Ertiga. A test mule of the new Ertiga was recently spotted testing with the 1.5-litre DDiS engine and is expected to be officially launched in India either later this month or in the first week of May. 

The Maruti Suzuki first debuted the newly-developed 1.5-litre DDiS 225 diesel engine with the Ciaz just a few days back. And the Ertiga will become the second model in the line-up to receive this powertrain. The new oil burner will initially sit alongside the ageing yet reliable 1.3-litre four-cylinder diesel unit until the latter is phased out due to emission norms kicking in next year.

The DDiS in the Ertiga will produce around 94bhp and 225Nm and is most likely be available with a six-speed manual transmission only. However, we do expect an automatic to join in later. As seen on the prototype already, the new 1.5 Ertiga won’t get any cosmetic changes to differentiate it from the rest of the model line-up. According to reports, the new diesel won’t get the SHVS mild-hybrid technology similar to the Ciaz. The carmaker claims that the new diesel motor offers superior NVH performance, which is achieved by using a Dual Mass Flywheel (DMF) along with optimised compression ratio to reduce the engine fluctuations. The new diesel powertrain is BS-VI ready and will comply with the upcoming emission norms as well.

When launched, the new 1.5 diesel Ertiga will demand a slight premium over the 1.3-litre counterpart. More details will be revealed soon, so stay tuned to CarWale.
