Maruti Suzuki will soon launch the all-new Ertiga in the Indian market. The same car will also be launched in the Indonesian market. According to sources, the car was recently showcased to a select few in Indonesia, in a private event, and new details have emerged about the upcoming MPV. The all-new Ertiga will be unveiled officially on 19th April and will be launched in India by August.
According to the new details that have surfaced online, the front cabin of the vehicle has changed completely. The new Ertiga will be based on the all-new HEARTECT platform that also underpins the Dzire, Swift and the Baleno in the Indian market. The Ertiga’s interiors will be similar to that of the Dzire, which means an all-new cabin. The new Ertiga will be bigger in size, which translates into better boot space and a spacious rear seat. The interior seating has also been changed. The rear seats can now be folded one by one, which adds more possibilities to fit larger items inside the car. The new Ertiga has become longer by 13 cm and wider by 4cm.
The new details also reveal that the new Ertiga matches with the pictures circulating on the Internet by 96% except for the rear design, which is slightly different on the production model. With this information, new renders have surfaced on the Internet that is much cleaner and reveals many more details about the upcoming car. The rear of the new Ertiga is inspired by the Mitsubishi Expander while the front is similar to the Innova Crysta.
The ride quality of the new Ertiga will also become softer and the suspension linings will become softer with the update. Other features include a push-button starter with e-Mobilizer. A few versions of the Ertiga will get Anti-Brake Lock System (ABS) and Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD) too but these features may change when the car comes to India.
Suzuki will introduce their all-new 1.5-litre M15A petrol engine with the Ertiga. The engine has been developed in-house and it develops around 108 Bhp. The diesel engine is also expected to get an update and replaced by Suzuki’s all-new 1.5-litre diesel engine but it is not confirmed if the all-new Ertiga will get the new diesel engine.
