Maruti Suzuki may launch AT variant of Ertiga in Indonesia

The entry-level utility vehicle from Maruti Suzuki has been a huge success not only in India, but also in Indonesia, where it was launched shortly after its debut. It worked well for MSI as Indonesia has market only for petrol vehicles, which don’t move off-the-shelf in India. To further enhance the desirability of the product, the Indonesian dealers have provided their inputs that include an AT gearbox for the utility vehicle.

The version launched in the South-East Asian country also lacks roof-mounted AC blower. It is expected to change soon as the Indian version of the Ertiga has this feature. The addition of an automatic transmission won’t be too difficult for Maruti Suzuki either, as it is a K-series engine and the smaller units of this 1.4-litre mill used in the Dzire and A-Star have that option. This will then be a four-speed AT gearbox with similar operations.

If Suzuki decided to offer AT variant of the Ertiga in Indonesia, rest assure that it will be launched in India as well. It might create a niche for itself, as we don’t have an entry-level utility vehicle with automatic transmission in India.
