Suzuki revealed the Ertiga Sport concept at the ongoing Indonesia International Motor Show of 2018. Here are some new pictures from the show floor that reveal everything about the sportier variant of the MPV, whose regular version will soon be launched in India.
As indicated by the images, the Suzuki Ertiga Sport gets a custom brown paint job, taller alloy wheels, low profile tyres, and a body kit that includes bumper inserts at the front and rear, and side skirts on the flanks. Other stylistic changes include blacked-out headlamps and a new mesh grille. The MPV sits lower to the floor, which means that it could be running lower springs. However, the 1.5 litre K-Series petrol engine hasn’t been tweaked for more performance.
It continues to run a 106 PS-138 Nm state of tune, and is offered with 5 speed manual and 4 speed automatic gearbox options. For the Indian market, Maruti Suzuki will continue to offer the 1.3 litre Fiat Multijet turbocharged diesel engine with 90 PS-200 Nm outputs.
A 5 speed manual gearbox will be standard although we won’t be surprised if Maruti throws in the AMT option for the diesel. In fact, such a combination is already offered on the Vitara Brezza compact SUV, which mean that it could be a straight fit onto the new Ertiga as well.
Notably, Indonesia was the first market in the world to receive the second generation Suzuki Ertiga MPV, and India is likely to be the second market. The all-new Ertiga is larger, lighter and more powerful. It’s based on the HEARTECT platform that it shares with the likes of the Maruti Swift, Baleno and Dzire. In India, the MPV will be sold with petrol and turbocharged diesel engine options. A front wheel drive layout will be standard and prices are expected to start from under Rs. 7 lakhs.
