Maruti Suzuki has opened the official Bookings for the All New Ertiga in India. The company is all set to launch the second generation of the Ertiga on November 21, 2018. The 2018 Ertiga will retail through the Maruti Suzuki Arena dealership network and will be available with both petrol and diesel engines. The booking amount has been set at Rs 11,000.
The company claims that over 4.18 lakh units of Ertiga have been sold cumulatively since its launch. Ertiga became an instant hit for urban families who are looking for a vehicle that offers more space and flexibility than a sedan. The next gen Ertiga is expected to further strengthen the product portfolio.
The new 2018 Ertiga will be offered with 4 variants – Lxi/Ldi, Vxi/Vdi, Zxi/Zdi and the range topping Zxi+/Dzi+. The new 2018 Ertiga will be available in a choice of five colours with a new pearl metallic auburn red alongside the standard grey, blue, white and silver.
Based on the acclaimed 5th Generation HEARTECT platform, the MPV will be available with both petrol and diesel engines. The new 1.5 L petrol motor that made its debut on the 2018 Ciaz will also power the new Maruti Suzuki Ertiga. The engine produces 103 hp of power and 138 Nm of torque. The 1.5 L petrol engine is mated to a standard 5-speed manual gearbox or a 4-speed torque convertor automatic gearbox. The petrol option on the new ertiga will also be getting the SHVS mild hybrid system.
The diesel option will be offered by the same 1.3 L DDIS 200 motor that makes 89 bhp of power and 200 Nm of torque. The diesel Ertiga will be offered only with a manual gearbox at the time of launch with the automatic variant to be offered at a later date. However, no CNG variant of the new Ertiga is slated for launch.
