The new Maruti Ertiga MPV has made its global debut at the ongoing Indonesia International Motor Show 2018. The latest iteration of the Ertiga MPV also receives a brand new design language as compared to its older generation.
With dimensions of 4395mm x 1735mm x 1690mm, the second generation Ertiga is 99mm longer, 40mm wider and 5mm taller than the outgoing model.
The new Ertiga is based on Suzuki's HEARTECT platform, as seen on most of the new generation models in Maruti's lineup including the Swift, Dzire and the Ignis.
The front fascia of the new Ertiga MPV receives a chrome-studded grille, flanked by stretched out headlamps on either side, a new front bumper with triangular housing for the fog lamps along with a central air dam. The rear of the MPV gets a redesigned tailgate along with new L-shaped tail lights.
On the inside, the new-gen MPV comes with light beige interiors with faux wood inserts and a touchscreen infotainment system. The Ertiga also gets roof-mounted AC vents as seen in the older generation model, 60:40 split middle row seats and 50:50 split third-row seats.
The boot capacity on the second generation Ertiga has increased by 18 litres to 153 litres with the third row raised up.
The interior is expected to offer a more spacious layout as compared to the older generation, due to the increase in the dimensions of the new MPV.
Other features on the new Maruti Ertiga include, a touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth and smartphone connectivity, push start/stop button, new leather-wrapped steering wheel with wooden ornaments and tilt function, new instrument cluster design and seat height adjustment.
Safety features on the Ertiga include dual-front airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child seat anchors and Electronic Stability Programme (ESP).
The Indonesia-spec Ertiga is powered by a new 1.5-litre K15B petrol engine producing 102bhp and 138Nm of torque. The engine comes with an option of either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic gearbox. However, we can expect the Indian version to carry forward the current 1.3-litre diesel engine itself, which will come mated to a five-speed manual transmission.
Thoughts On The Second-Generation Maruti Ertiga
The new-gen Maruti Ertiga has been spotted testing in India on multiple occasions. Now, with its global debut at the Indonesia Motor Show, we can expect the launch of the MPV in India soon.
