Maruti has launch a limited edition Maruti Ertiga on its first anniversary, called the Maruti Ertiga Feliz. This limited-edition variant would be based on the mid-trim VXI and VDI variant of the Ertiga. The Ertiga Feliz will cost about Rs. 20,000 more than the normal variant.
The Maruti Ertiga has been a sales success for Maruti, soaring to the number one spot among MUV sales, beating the long-standing leader, the Toyota Innova. The Maruti Ertiga has been selling over 6000 vehicles a month on average ever since it was launched. It is available in both petrol and diesel variants, with the latter accounting for over 80% of sales. Also read: How to decide if an MPV is right for you
What’s new in the Maruti Ertiga Feliz?
The Maruti Ertiga Feliz gets a few cosmetic embellishments on the mid-trim VXI and VDI variants. This includes a buffed chrome grille, chrome fog lamp housing, body graphics, a rear spoiler, interior styling kit in the form of trim décor, new floor mats, door sill guards, seat covers and matching pillows with Maruti Ertiga Feliz branding, beige steering cover, and a reverse parking sensor system with a display.

These extra bits are available only on the VXI and VDI variants, now branded Feliz, for a limited period of time till stocks last. The Ertiga petrol is powered by a 1.4 litre engine putting out 94 bhp of power, while the diesel Ertiga is powered by the tried and tested 1.3 litre multijet diesel engine putting out 89 bhp of power. The vehicle has found favour with buyers looking at a vehicle that would suit large families and yet retains its car-like appeal. Being a seven seater, the Ertiga is quite versatile.
The limited edition comes with a price tag of just Rs. 20,000 more. Similar to the slew of limited edition variants that Maruti has brought out including, the Maruti Dzire Regal, the Maruti A-Star Aktiv and Maruti Alto K10, the additional features in the Ertiga come with a nominal price hike, making it a pretty good deal.
The timing of this limited edition Maruti Ertiga too is very strategic, given that the Chevrolet Enjoy launches on May 9, and will be a key rival to the Maruti Ertiga. Also read:Chevrolet Enjoy versus Maruti Ertiga
