This has to be the world’s first bagged Maruti Ertiga. There are so many professional car modification houses these days which can convert any car into just about any other car. In fact, they can also perform some modifications to the mechanical components which you might not have thought of otherwise. Ertiga is the most successful MPV in India. Its practicality and affordability are the main reasons for its massive success. However, the model shown in this latest post brings some intriguing alterations to its suspension setup. Here are the details.

World’s First Bagged Maruti Ertiga
This post comes from boyaldikukers and ertigamodifikasi on Instagram. In all fairness, I am not sure whether this Ertiga is from India or abroad. The number plate certainly reads something else. In any case, we are interested in getting to know the modifications. Now to achieve the bagged silhouette, car shops often install air suspension in vehicles. These might be standard in premium high-end vehicles for the utmost comfort of the passengers. But carmakers don’t use this technology in budget cars due to price constraints. Moreover, this setup severely compromises the practicality and usability of the car in day-to-day driving conditions.

For instance, looking at the condition of this model in question, one could clearly make out just how close to the road it sits. That hampers its mobility drastically. Especially on roads like India, the potholes and speed breakers will inevitably lead to the underbelly of the MPV getting scratched quite often. Also, there have to be so many modifications to the mechanical setup to ensure that the tyre doesn’t brush against the body of the car and the entire system works efficiently with the overall parts of the vehicle. Hence, if not done properly, it could lead to issues with the car in the long run. There are other modifications to the front bumper, headlamp cluster, side body cladding and alloy wheels too.

In inference, we want to advise our readers against attempting such modifications without considering potential future issues. In India, smooth highways are not ubiquitous, and not all roads can accommodate a car like this. Additionally, given that we often travel with family members, the increased weight of the car may lead to the tyres touching the vehicle’s body, which is undesirable. Finally, it’s important to note that any form of car modification in India is illegal, necessitating permission from the local RTO.
