Maruti Suzuki Launches Revamped Ertiga, Priced at Rs. 5.99 Lakh
Maruti Suzuki launched a revamped Ertiga MVP. The launch comes just before the Diwali sales, and carries a starting price of Rs. 5.99 lakh for petrol and Rs 7.55 lakh for diesel variants (ex showroom Delhi). Most of the cosmetic changes can be found on the front with a large chrome grille that gives it a wider look, while the rear has a chrome slat above the number plate. The colours are brighter this time around with Beige and Blue as the two flavours available.
According to Maruti Suzuki, the new Ertiga is more fuel efficient as well with the diesel variants giving 24.5 kmpl, which is 18% higher from before, and 17.5 kmpl in petrol variants, which is up by 9%.
Under the hood of the diesel variant, the Ertiga sports a 1.3 multi-jet diesel engine, that gives 89bhp and 200Nm of torque. It also comes with a SHVS small hybrid engine that debuted with Ciaz hybrid, with the regular diesel engine beign phased out. The petrol variants will have a 1.4-litre K series engine producing 94bhp and 130Nm torque.
The interiors of the Ertiga are also worth mentioning. There is an engine start/stop button, new upholstery, automatic folding mirrors and a SmartPlay infotainment system which includes touchscreen, Bluetooth functionality, navigation and a reverse camera.
The company has taken some improved safety measures as well, especially with the base models. Entry variants will now have dual-airbag anti-lock breaking system (ABS) with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and seatbelts with pre-tensioners and force limiters.
