One of the best value-for-money 7-seater products in India, the very popular Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is expected to release coming year. Going by the looks of this heavily camouflaged vehicle in these pictures, it seems that the 2018 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga could even show up alongside the new Swift hatchback at the upcoming 2018 Auto Expo.
The rumored Ertiga (2018) was spotted for the testing. The test mule appears to be longer than the current-gen Ertiga which could be a major differentiating factor. The area between the C and D-pillars appears to be longer this time, which suggests that seating comfort in the 3rd row and boot space could be an improvement. Design wise, it retains a familiar silhouette, however, let’s hope for the fascia and the rear to be updated with some visual changes. As visible, the alloy wheel pattern appears to be brand new.
Maruti’s Ertiga is already loaded with Smart Hybrid System on the diesel variant, that feature is expected on the next-gen Ertiga. We expect some changes to the upholstery, centre console and instrumentation, although the existing Smart Screen could be carried over and should get Android Auto compatibility. The existing Ertiga is available with most modern features and all of that should come fitted with the new car too.
EXPECTED TECH SPECS
Powered by a 1.4-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engine, the 2018 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga could soldier on with the existing setup. However, Maruti might be hiding something up in their selves and may power it with their new 1.5-liter oil burner which has been developed in-house and is said to make its debut under the facelifted Ciaz’s hood next year.
2018 MARUTI SUZUKI ERTIGA EXPECTED LAUNCH DATE
Since it is already out on the roads testing, we expect Maruti to preview the next-gen Ertiga at the upcoming 2018 Auto Expo in Delhi. So, we can expect the launch date right after that.
Current prices for the Ertiga start at INR 8,29,934 for the VXI, CNG fueled model, going up to INR 10,68,815 for the top-of-the-line Ertiga Smart Hybrid ZDI+(MANUAL). Expect the current first digit to be replaced by the next number, whenever the new car arrives.
