Maruti Suzuki, one of the most renowned automakers in India, is all set to launch its new facelift model of the Ertiga MPV. The new Ertiga is expected to compete with the Toyota Innova regarding features, specifications, engine power, and price.
The new Ertiga will come equipped with a BS6-compliant 1.5-liter K15B petrol engine that can generate 105 horsepower and 138 Nm of torque. It will be paired with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. The company also plans to introduce a new 1.5-litre DDiS225 diesel engine that can produce 94 horsepower and 225 Nm of torque. This engine will be paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox.
The new Ertiga will have a refreshed front grille, redesigned bumpers, and LED projector headlamps. It will also have new alloy wheels and a revised rear-end design. The interior of the new Ertiga is expected to be more spacious and comfortable, with premium upholstery and features like a touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control, and a rearview camera.
Safety features are also expected to be top-notch, with ABS with EBD, dual airbags, reverse parking sensors, and a host of other safety features offered as standard. Higher variants may include additional safety features such as a hill hold assist, an electronic stability program, and a reverse parking camera with sensors.
Maruti Suzuki is expected to launch the new Ertiga in petrol and diesel variants, with prices ranging from Rs. 8.35 – 12.79 Lakh* (ex-showroom). The new Ertiga will likely compete with other MPVs in the Indian market, including the Toyota Innova Crysta, Mahindra Marazzo, and Honda BR-V.
With the new Ertiga, Maruti Suzuki targets customers who want a premium MPV at an affordable price. The Innova has been a popular choice among buyers for its spacious interiors, powerful engine, and premium features. However, with the launch of the new Ertiga, Maruti Suzuki is set to challenge Toyota’s dominance in the MPV segment.
The Ertiga has been popular among Indian buyers since its launch in 2012. The new facelift model is expected to enhance its popularity among buyers further. The new engine options, premium features, and competitive pricing will likely attract more buyers towards the Ertiga.
In conclusion, the new facelift model of the Ertiga is expected to give tough competition to the Toyota Innova in terms of features, specifications, engine power, and price. With its powerful engine options, premium features, and competitive pricing, the new Ertiga will likely attract many buyers in the Indian market.
