Maruti Suzuki unveiled the Ertiga MPV at the 11th Delhi Auto Expo and the company will launch it in April. The Ertiga kicks start a new compact MPV segment and will compete with the Chevrolet’s production version of the MPV concept and Mahindra’s mini Xylo that did not make appearance at the auto show.
It seats seven adult seats (2+3+2 configuration) with 135 litres boot space when all seats are up—or, 480 liters with folded third row. The petrol variant will be powered by a 1.4-litre K-series 98 bhp motor while the diesel variant will be powered by 1.3-litre DDiS super turbo that makes 90 bhp.
The Ertiga is expected to be priced in the range of Rs. 6 – Rs. 8 lakh depending on the variant. At this price, it will make for rather compelling big family car.
