India’s First Maruti Suzuki Ertiga MPV modified with electric sunroof looks neat

Maruti Suzuki has been one of the most popular MPVs in the Indian market. Couple of years ago, Maruti launched the current generation Ertiga MPV and it is doing well in both private and commercial sector. Maruti Ertiga is a 7-seater MPV and had created a segment for itself when it was initially launched in 2012. The all-new Ertiga is based on Maruti’s HEARTECT platform and is lightweight and offers more space on the inside. Several accessories are available for Ertiga in the market and here we have one such current generation Ertiga that has been modified inside out. It is probably the first Ertiga in the country to get an electric sunroof.

The video has been uploaded by Rohit Mehta Sai Auto Accessories on their YouTube channel. The car shown in the video belongs to the vlogger itself. He starts by talking about all the unique additions that he has done to the car. First modification is done on the roof. It now gets an aftermarket electric sunroof installed on it. Unlike other cars, the sunroof is positioned in a way that it is more useful for the second row passenger and not the driver. The fit and finish on the sunroof looks pretty neat.

Next modification is the sunglass holder which is available with XL6 – premium version of Ertiga (sold via Nexa). On the outside, the vlogger has replaced the original 15 inch wheels with 16 inch Maruti Suzuki’s genuine dual tone alloy wheels. Other modifications on the outside include an aftermarket body kit from Amotriz. This body kit gives it a sporty look. The kit gets grey and silver treatment with red highlights at places.

The headlights now gets dual projector headlamps with Red LED angel lights. LED DRLs are positioned on the lower part of the bumper. The fog lamps are also projector LED units. The bonnet gets a black masking that goes all the way till the rear spoiler. There are chrome garnishes on window and the tail lights are also smoked out. The boot gets a black masking with red accents and the Amotriz body kit on the rear bumper gives it a muscular look. A pair of reflector lamps are also installed on the bumper. The side profile also shows the body coloured wheel arch claddings and door cladding.

On the inside, the car gets brown carbon finished hydro-dipped plastic panels on the dashboard, doors and even the center console. All doors get damping and the speakers are also upgraded. The roof lining has been customised and the car gets an aftermarket touchscreen system which also shows the feed from 360 degree camera. LED ambient lights are installed in the car and the seats get an leather seat covers too. The floor gets 7D mats and the overall work done on this Ertiga looks good.

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is currently available with a petrol engine only. It is powered by a 1.5 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that generates 105 Ps and 138 Nm of peak torque. The MPV is gets both manual and automatic transmission options. Maruti might bring back the diesel engine in Ertiga and couple of other models soon as they have been spotted testing on our roads.
