Maruti calls the Ertiga a Life Utility Vehicle (LUV). The Ertiga marks the origin of a new compact MPV segment with a length equivalent to entry-level sedans but has the capacity to transport seven passengers. Here we take a look at it’s variants and prices across cities.
The Ertiga looks like a big hatchback for it is actually based on the extended Ritz platform. The front of the MPV has design cues borrowed from the Swift and the Ritz, yet it manages to looks good. The side profile has well pronounced wheel arches which you don’t expect in a typical MPV.
The rear of the Ertiga is a bit of a disappointment for its boot door is bland and lacks character. The side swept tail lamp cluster ends sharply below the rear quarter glass. Overall, the Ertiga is one of the best looking Marutis driven in India today. Read more: Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Road test
Powered by the 1.3-litre DDiS motor (same as in SX4 diesel) that puts out 89 bhp and an all new 1.4-litre K-series petrol motor that puts out 94 bhp, the Ertiga is fuel efficient as it has a claimed mileage of 16.02 kmpl and 20.77 kmpl.
The light weight body and car-like handling makes the Ertiga a logical upgrade for premium hatchback and entry-level sedan buyers who need more space and seating capacity. Let’s look into the different variants of the Ertiga and the features of each variant in detail.
