Maruti Suzuki Ertiga to launch on April 12


The Ertiga - Maruti’s first shot at the MPV (Multi-Purpose Vehicle) market, made its world debut at the Auto Expo held in January.

This latest model, which will go on sale on April 12, is the first compact MPV in its class. At 4.26m length, it’s much longer than the Swift (the MPV is based on the new Swift’s platform) the benefit of extended wheelbase means you also get third row of seats – the Ertiga comes with seating for 7 passengers in a 2+3+2 layout. When it comes to looks, this compact MPV is a mixed-bag of Suzuki’s styling cues. The Ertiga shares the look with its hatchback siblings; the swept-back headlamps come from the Swift while the rest of the design is similar to the Ritz.

The dash, for instance, is lifted off the new Swift. However, the interior plastics have been given a beige treatment, which makes them look a lot more desirable compared to the Swift’s all-black interior. 

With folding individual seats on the middle and last row to give away more boot space; the whole cabin itself is spacious and quite flexible. Feature list includes - steering-mounted audio controls, keyless entry, MID (multi-information display), central locking, stereo with USB compatibility and much more. 

In the engine department, the Ertiga is powered by an all-new K-Series engine. This 1.4-litre petrol unit makes 94bhp @6000rpm and 13.2kgm of torque @4000rpm. Also on offer will be the SX4-sourced 1.3-litre Super Turbo DDiS diesel engine which produces 88 bhp @4000 rpm and 20.4 kgm @1750rpm. Fuel efficiency is a claimed 16 kmpl and 21 kmpl for the petrol and diesel models respectively.

We expect the Ertiga to be offered in the usual Lxi/Vxi/Zxi and Ldi/Vdi/Zdi levels of trim. Prices for this impressive compact-MPV will be announced at the time of launch though we reckon it would be in the region of Rs 6-9 Lakh.
