Maruti's first multi purpose vehicle, the Ertiga will be launched on April 12. The Ertiga, which is based on the Swift platform, will be up against the Toyota Innova and Mahindra Xylo.
The car looks similar to the Ritz and Swift - more of an extended wheelbase variant of both. The interiors feature three rows of seating with dual tone upholstery with the steering wheel having audio controls on it.
The middle and third row of passengers have air vents embedded in the roof liner above the front row. With a turning radius of 5.2m and being lesser in length and width than its competitors, the Ertiga has nimble dynamics.
Maruti claims a fuel efficiency of 16.02kmpl for the petrol and 20.77kmpl for the diesel powered Ertiga.
Maruti is offering two engine options in the Ertiga. A new 1.4-litre K-series petrol engine which produces 95PS and a 1.3-litre DDiS engine which makes 90PS. Both the engines are mated to a 5-speed manual box.
Maruti claims a fuel efficiency of 16.02kmpl for the petrol and an incredible 20.77kmpl for the diesel powered Ertiga. We expect Maruti to price the Ertiga between Rs 7-9 lakh.
