The new Maruti MPV will be a more premium offering from the Indian manufacturer and will be sold through the brand's Nexa dealerships. Although, based on the Ertiga, the new MPV from Maruti Suzuki will offer a new look and design, as reported by CarDekho.
The premium MPV is also expected to come with a new name, which will easily differentiate it from the Ertiga. The new Maruti MPV will also be sportier while featuring a six-seater configuration on the inside.
Other interior updates are also expected, this includes additional features providing a more premium and upmarket feel to the new MPV. Some of the features expected include LED headlamps, LED DRLs, LED taillights, leather upholstery, cruise control and new sportier alloy wheels.
In terms of mechanicals, the new Maruti MPV will receive the company's new in-house developed 1.5-litre diesel engine. The new engine is set to replace the current Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre multijet unit soon. Details of the new and bigger engine have been revealed and are said to produce 95bhp and 225Nm of peak torque.
It will also feature the new 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, which debuted on the Ciaz. The new petrol engine churns out 105bhp and 138Nm of torque. Both engines will further come mated to a standard six-speed manual gearbox.
The standard Maruti Ertiga was launched in the market, recently. The second-generation Ertiga came with a completely refreshed design, offering a more upmarket feel to the MPV. The Maruti Ertiga comes with a starting price of Rs 7.44 lakh while the top-spec variant of the Ertiga MPV is priced at 10.9 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom (Delhi).
