Maruti Suzuki India Limited has named its upcoming MPV as Ertiga, The Ertiga has been developed on the Maruti R3 concept which was first displayed at the Auto Expo 2010 in New Delhi India. The Maruti Ertiga is a seven seater MPV designed and developed in India by Maruti Research and Development department and has been undergoing testing for quite some time now. The Ertiga is approaching its official launch in India in coming quarters, which maybe late 2011 or early 2012. The Ertiga is all set to give a tough competition of Mahindra Xylo, Toyota Innova, Tata Sumo in India. The Ertiga is expected to be priced below Rs. 10 lakh price tag which will make it an attractive buy for most of the MPV buyers along with the reliable Maruti technology and service network.
The rear of R3 MPV looks quite simple with wraparound tail lamps being only thing which appeals to eyes. The wheelbase and ground clearance both have been kept amply high for good ride quality even on bad roads of India with fully loaded car. The R3 does not look as aerodynamic or visually appealing as Innova, but it has a huge advantage of Maruti tag, Maruti service centers and wide dealership network. We are keeping an eye on the developments and will bring you more as it happens.
