PT Suzuki Indomobil Motor is all set to launch the Ertiga GT in Indonesia on 23 March. Ahead of its launch, Indonesian media reports have revealed that the Ertiga GT will be priced at IDR 187,000,000 (Approx. Rs 9.12 lakhs) for the manual variant and IDR 195,000,000 (Approx. Rs 9.51 lakhs) for the automatic version.
Images of the 2019 Suzuki Ertiga GT were leaked over the inter web earlier this week. Judging by those photos, the new Ertiga GT features a few design tweaks to the exteriors with sporty highlights.
The Ertiga GT will now come equipped with a new matte black-finished mesh grille, front lip spoiler, side body skirts, rear lip spoiler and blacked-out multi-spoke alloy wheels. The body kit will get red highlights. A tail-mounted rear spoiler, a red GT emblem and a black accent on the rear bumper are also a part of the package.
The Suzuki Ertiga GT will, reportedly, be available in across five colour options - Prime Cool Black, Radiant Red, Magma Grey, Pearl Arctic While and Silky Silver. While the interiors of the Ertiga GT haven't been revealed yet, the MPV is likely to feature a dark trim with black faux-leather seats. It will continue to source power from a 1.5-litre K15B petrol motor.
The Ertiga GT could make for a good business case for India’s largest car maker. There’s no compact MPV in the Indian market with a sports trim, and the only option available is the much more premium and expensive Toyota Innova Crysta Touring Sport.
That said, Maruti Suzuki is reportedly readying a premium 6-seat Ertiga for the domestic market which will be marketed through the Nexa dealerships. Furthermore, the company is also set to introduce an all-new 1.5-litre E15A diesel motor that will produce 95 PS of power and 225 Nm of peak torque. It will come mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.
