Maruti Suzuki India officially started taking the bookings of the all-new Ertiga in the Indian market. The car can be booked at a payment of Rs. 11,000 and the official prices would be announced on the 21st of November. Maruti also revealed today the all-new Ertiga would be available in five new colours. Here are pictures of the all-new Ertiga from a dealer stockyard that completely reveals the vehicles inside out.
Even though the all-new Ertiga was first launched in the Indonesian market, the vehicle has been caught testing in the Indian market under heavy camouflage. These pictures from a stockyard show the all-new Ertiga in its full glory. The pictures show that the space inside the vehicle remains almost similar to the current generation of the Ertiga even though the dimensions of the vehicle have increased. The extra space has mostly been used in the last-row space and increasing the boot space.
The all-new Ertiga looks much more modern and gets deep creases on the side. However, the size of the tyres remains similar to the current generation Ertiga, which is the same 185 section. The vehicle gets a much bigger and more aggressive front grille with larger headlamps. The bumper gets large fog lamp housing. At the rear, the all-new Ertiga gets tall Volvo-inspired lamps. It sure looks much more intimidating on the roads now.
The all-new MPV is based on the Heartect platform that underpins the Swift and the Dzire. It has also become much lighter but we are not sure about the new weight. On the inside, it gets a new steering wheel and a dual-tone dashboard. The interior itself has become very plush with the extensive use of the faux wood, similar to the Maruti Ciaz. There is a SmartPlay touchscreen infotainment system that sits in the middle of the dashboard.
The all-new Ertiga gets ISOFIX mounts on the seats and this feature is expected to be available as stock across the variants. The car also gets roof-mounted rear AC vents and a charging point below the armrest. There are many deep pockets under the armrest to keep things. It is not confirmed but the rear seat might be adjustable for inclination. Also, there are no roof vents for the third row but the airflow from the second-row should be enough to keep the rear cabin space cool.
The all-new Ertiga would be powered by 1.5-litre petrol, which is all-new engine introduced with the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. It will get the SHVS mild hybrid system just like the Ciaz and will return a high fuel efficiency. Apart from the regular 5-speed manual transmission, the petrol version would also get a 4-speed torque converter automatic transmission.
The 1.3-litre diesel engine continues to remain the same. It also gets the SHVS mild hybrid system and a 5-speed manual transmission. Maruti will announce the price of the all-new Ertiga on 21st November and the deliveries are expected to start soon. The base model will get a price tag of around Rs. 6.5 lakhs, ex-showroom.
