Maruti Suzuki launched the all-new Ertiga in the Indian market last year. The car has already become the top-selling MUV in the Indian market. Maruti Suzuki, for the time ever, offered Smart Hybrid system with the petrol engine-powered Ertiga. Well, while the popularity of the Ertiga still seems to be growing in the market, here is an example, which is up for sale in the used car market and it is almost in a brand new condition with a hefty discount.
The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga for sale here was registered in February 2019, which makes it only a few months older. The asking price is only Rs 8.2 lakh, which makes it much cheaper than the new version. Just to compare, a brand-new Maruti Suzuki Ertiga petrol SHVS will cost around Rs 9.54 lakh. This makes the car almost Rs 1.5 lakh cheaper than a brand-new vehicle’s on-road cost. This is the VXI version, which is the mid-level variant of the Ertiga. According to the advertisement put on Facebook Marketplace, the vehicle has done only 1,300 km according to the odometer. The post also says that no work has been done on the vehicle. Since it is only a few months older, the OEM warranty on the vehicle is still intact, which will be a huge benefit for the new owner. Also, there will be a few free services that the customers will be able to use them after buying the vehicle. In the pictures, we can see that there are no scratches or dents on the vehicle and it is spotless. The exact reason for selling the vehicle is not known though.
The Ertiga gets the brand-new 1.5-litre petrol engine, which entered the Indian market with the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. It has been developed in-house by Maruti Suzuki and it produces a maximum power of 104 Bhp and peak torque of 138 Nm. It is offered with a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic torque converter transmission. With the SHVS system in place, the manual version of the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga SHVS petrol returns a maximum of 19.34 km/l, which is a lot for a 7-seater petrol vehicle.
The mid-level VXI variant, which is up for sale here gets features like rear AC vents, remote keyless entry, body-coloured handles and outside rearview mirrors, turn indicators integrated to the wing mirrors, wheel caps for the 15-inch steel wheels, 12V dedicated charging sockets in the first and the second row, day/night rearview mirror, electronically adjustable and folding wing mirrors, four speakers, infotainment system with USB, AUX and Bluetooth connectivity and steering-mounted controls for the audio and telephone.
