The MY 2019 Maruti Ertiga comes with revised alloy wheels with rest of its specifications and features remaining the same as before.
Maruti Suzuki had launched the second generation Ertiga MPV in India last year. The Indo-Japanese automaker’s only seven-seater offering in the Indian market has been doing quite well since the first generation iteration was launched a couple of years back. The sales have only increased with the debut of the all-new iteration with this MPV averaging a monthly figure of around 6,000 units.
The second generation Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is based on an all-new platform i.e. Suzuki’s HEARTECT. As a result of this, with this update, the Ertiga has grown across its dimensions and hence, offering more space inside the cabin. The lighweight and stiffer construction of this vehicle has also helped increase its crash worthiness in comparison to the model that it replaces.
Apart from this, the second generation Maruti Ertiga also offers a better feature list. The top-spec variant comes with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that offers Android Auto and Apple Car Play, rear parking camera, projector headlamps, steering mounted audio controls, automatic climate control to name a few.
In addition to these creature comforts, the new Maruti Ertiga scored high when it comes to its onboard safety list. As standard, this MPV comes with dual airbags along with ABS and EBD, rear parking sensors and high-speed alert system.
With the introduction of the second generation Ertiga, Maruti Suzuki has replaced the older 1.4-litre petrol engine with a 1.5-litre gasoline unit. This engine produces higher power and torque outputs and is paired to a 5-speed manual transmission. The diesel engine remain the same which is a 1.3-litre, DDiS unit. It is paired to a 5-speed manual transmission. The petrol derivative is also available with a 4-speed torque converter unit.
For the year 2019, Maruti Suzuki has minutely revised the Ertiga MPV. The revision only includes a newer shade for the multi-spoke alloy wheels. From their earlier silver colour, they are now going to be offered in a slightly darker shade of grey/black. In addition to this, the Indo-Japanese automaker is expected to soon introduce a premium derivative of the Ertiga in India. The same is going to be sold through its Nexa dealership outlets and is likely to adorn a new name.
