This is one of India’s sportiest looking Maruti Suzuki Ertiga MPVs. It gets styling updated in line with the Indonesian spec FF Sport model. The 7-seater MPV comes at a starting price of Rs. 8.41 lakh.
Nowadays, car manufacturers in India are introducing sporty iterations of their regular models irrespective of it being a sedan, hatchback or an SUV. Most of these sporty models are mere cosmetic enhancements to give a special appeal to the vehicle while few get mechanical tweaks. For example, the Hyundai i20 N-Line and Venue N-Line get cosmetic as well as mechanical changes, while the Kia Seltos X-Line and Sonet X-Line feature just styling upgrades. Some brands offer the sporty trims of their vehicles in international markets, however, for some reason, skip it for Indian markets.
So enthusiasts and modification experts often take inspiration from these international spec models and customize their rides with the same sporty updates. We already have seen many examples of the Maruti Suzuki Swift being modified to look like an international spec Swift Sport model. So today we bring you a regular Maruti Suzuki Ertiga which is modified to look like the Indonesian spec Ertiga FF Sport model via a YouTube video by ‘VIG AUTO ACCESSORIES’.
