The new 2018 version of the Maruti Ertiga MPV was recently unveiled at IIMS this year. The MPV is expected to launch in the Indian market sometime later this year.

The new 2018 Ertiga MPV features a completely new design language as compared to the older generation. The latest iteration of the MPV offering from Maruti will be based on the HEARTECT platform. This is the same platform used by the Swift, Dzire and Ignis offerings from Maruti.

The 2018 Ertiga is expected to be powered by Maruti's new 1.5-litre, K15B Series petrol engine. This engine will produce 102bhp and 138nm of torque. The spy images now show that the new model might come with a six-speed manual gearbox. The MPV however, will carry forward the same diesel engine as on the current model, the 1.3-litre power unit.
