This Maruti Ertiga that wants to be a Mahindra! [Video]

One of the most popular MPV in the country the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is known for offering a decent amount of luxury on a budget and currently sits below the more premium XL6 MPV in Maruti’s lineup. The MPV from the company comes fairly equipped with features on the inside but on the outside, it looks a little boring and simple. So numerous owners of this MPV in the country have started modifying this MPV to make it look a little more sporty, premium,  and unique. Recently another video of a customized Maruti Suzuki Ertiga was uploaded on YouTube.

The video of this modified Maruti Suzuki Ertiga was uploaded by Vig Auto Accessories on their channel. The presenter starts with the introduction of the modified Magma Grey Ertiga. He first tells that the headlights of the MPV have been swapped out for the custom Crystal LED headlights. He explains that the new headlamps get BMW-like Daytime Running LEDS and the inside of these headlights has been smoked to give it a mean look. He adds that the LED lights also get different modes. He mentions that the fog lamps have also been replaced.

He then moves on to the custom grille of the MPV which he emphasizes is a replacement piece and not a stick-on grille which is cheaper. The grille makes the Maruti MPV look like a Mahindra vehicle. The presenter then showcases the main highlight of this particular Ertiga which is an imported Indonesian body kit that makes the plain old Ertiga look a lot more aggressive than a stock one.
