Maruti Suzuki is India’s largest car manufacturer and they have a variety of car models in their line up. In 2012, Maruti launched Ertiga which was a 7-seater MPV. Back then, it was marketed as a an LUV and was priced competitively. It was placed below Toyota Innova and it went on creating a new segment for itself in the future. Maruti Suzuki launched the new generation Ertiga in the market few years ago and we have seen several examples of modified current gen Ertiga MUVs in the country. Here we have a video that shows an Ertiga with several aftermarket accessories installed.
The video has been uploaded by Rohit Mehta Sai Auto Accessories on their YouTube channel. In this video, the vlogger talks about all the modifications that has been made to the Ertiga. Starting at the front, the stock grille on this Ertiga has been replaced with an Amotriz grille. The grille is body coloured and gives it an aggressive look at the front.
The bumper remains the same however a dual tone bumper protector has been installed on the car that again adds to the aggressive look. Coming to the lights. It now gets two projector headlamps with red LED rings on it. There are two aftermarket LED DRLs integrated in the headlamp and a boomerang shaped dotted LED DRL is seen on the bumper as well. They have also pasted a long black strip on the bonnet.
Coming to the side profile, the Ertiga retains its original alloy wheels. There are rain visors and the ORVMs and the roof of the car is blacked out. A set of lower window chrome garnish is available in the car. Moving to the rear, there is a are reflector LED lamps, pillar lights and tail lamps are smoked for a sporty touch. It also has a aftermarket diffuser with fake exhaust tips on it.
As we move in, there are several modifications here too. As it was already a higher level model, it came with almost all the features that Maruti offers. The plastic panels on the door and the dashboard now get a carbon fiber finish. The upper portion of the dashboard gets a leather wrap. Similar treatment has been done to the door pads as well. It already came with decent seat covers and the vlogger did not change it. The car also got illuminated scuff plates and ambient lights have also been installed. Footwell area in the car also gets light and they have also installed a sunglass holder which is available with XL6.
Maruti Ertiga was earlier available with both petrol and diesel engine options. As part of the BS6 transition, the diesel engine was discontinued from Ertiga and other Maruti models. Ertiga is now available with a 1.5 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine only. This engine is available with a manual and a 4 speed automatic gearbox option. Maruti is now planning to bring back diesel engines in some of their models. It is expected to be a 1.5 litre diesel that Maruti Suzuki will be developing inhouse.
