- The Suzuki Ertiga Black Edition gets an all-black trim to the interiors.
- It employs a 1.5-litre K15B petrol motor with five-speed manual and four-speed automatic transmissions
- Exteriors of the Ertiga Black Edition remains unchanged.
Earlier this week, the Suzuki Ertiga GT was spied in Indonesia ahead of its official launch on 23 March. The Japanese carmaker has now launched the Ertiga Black Edition in the Philippines, which gets a stealthy black trim for the interiors. The car comes with a black finish to the dashboard, door panels, seats and several other pieces of the cabin.
That said, the Ertiga Black Edition continues to feature the faux wood inserts on the dashboard, steering wheel and the front doors. Apart from the black interior styling, the top-spec variant of the Suzuki Ertiga Black Edition also features a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system. However, it is not the Smartplay unit that the India-spec car gets. The Ertiga Black Edition is available in two trims in the Philippines - GA MT and the GLX AT, priced at P738,000 (Rs 9.69 lakhs) and P988,000 (Rs 12.97 lakhs), respectively.
The Black Edition adds a sporty character to the cabin of the Suzuki Ertiga. So, if Maruti Suzuki plans to introduce it in the Indian market, it will first address its biggest concern, namely maintaining the beige interiors of the car. The exteriors of the Ertiga Black Edition are precisely similar to the regular variant. The Ertiga continues with the 1.5-litre K15B petrol motor that makes 103.4 bhp and 138 Nm. It is available across a five-speed manual gearbox and a four-speed automatic transmission.
For the Indian market, Maruti Suzuki is gearing up to introduce a new in-house developed 1.5-litre E15A DDiS 225 diesel motor that will generate 94 bhp and 225 Nm, mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The company is also readying a premium six-seat Maruti Suzuki Ertiga that will be sold through the Nexa channel.
