Maruti Suzuki has launched the next generation Ertiga for the Indian market and the range is priced from Rs 7.44 lakhs to Rs 10.90 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi). There’s 10 variants, five colour options, one petrol and diesel engine on offer as well as an automatic transmission for the petrol motor. We’ve told you how the Ertiga fares against the competition and a little bit about its exterior design highlights. Well, here is what you get in each variant of the car in both petrol and diesel.
Maruti has reduced the number of variants being offered with the Ertiga as it has now standardised the safety options across all variants. You now get dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and ISOFIX child seat mounting points across the range.
Next-gen Maruti Suzuki Ertiga LXi and LDi (Rs 7.44 lakhs and Rs 8.84 lakhs)
These are the entry-level variants for the next generation Ertiga. Standard features for these variants are:
-Dual tone interiors
-60:40 split folding second row and 50:50 split for third row
-Headrests for all three rows
-Colour MID for all petrol powered models
-12V socket for first row
-Speed sensing door locks
-LED tail lamps
-Painted front grille
Next-gen Maruti Suzuki Ertiga VXi/VDi/VXi AT (Rs 8.16 lakhs/ Rs 9.56 lakhs/ Rs 9.18 lakhs)
In addition to the features of the entry-level LXi and LDi, you also get the following in the VXi/VDi/VXi AT variant.

Next-gen Maruti Suzuki Ertiga ZXi/ZDi/ZXi AT (Rs 8.99 lakhs/ Rs 10.39 lakhs/ Rs 9.95 lakhs)
The ZXi/ZDi and ZXi AT variants are a significant step up from the VXi/VDi/VXi AT variants. It’s at this point that the more luxury oriented options available for the Ertiga are offered. The extra features as compared to the lower variants are:

Next-gen Maruti Suzuki Ertiga ZXi+/ZDi+ (Rs 9.50 lakhs/ Rs 10.90 lakhs)
The ZXi+/ZDi+ variants are the most expensive version of this second generation Ertiga that you can buy. They are fully loaded models, offered only as manual models. We expect that Maruti Suzuki will introduce ZXi+ AT variant for the MUV as a planned update at a later date.
Over the ZXi/ZDi variants you get the following.
-Leather wrapped steering wheel with wood finish
-Touchscreen system with Maruti Suzuki Smartplay infotainment OS
-Apple Car Play/Android Auto compatibility
-Inbuilt navigation and voice command recognition
We would recommend you go for the ZXi/ZDi variants as it is a good mix of all features offered with the new 2018 Ertiga.
