New Delhi: Maruti Suzuki has finally launched the Ertiga MPV at a price of Rs 5.89 lakh for the base petrol variant, ex-Delhi. The Ertiga is being offered in six variants – three with a petrol engine and three with a diesel and will square off against the Innova and Xylo. It will be available in seven colours.
The Ertiga uses familiar parts and bits from the Maruti kitty. Its swept back headlamps project a family look which has been inspired from the Swift while the bonnet and grille are taken from the Ritz. 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 is offering two engine options for the Ertiga. An all new 1.4-litre K-series petrol engine which produces 95PS and the trusted 1.3-litre DDiS engine which makes 90PS.
Both the engines use a traditional 5-speed manual box to put power down to the road. Maruti claims a fuel efficiency of 16.02kmpl for the petrol and an incredible 20.77kmpl for the diesel powered Ertiga.
