Exclusive - Upcoming Maruti Suzuki Ertiga facelift variant line-up, new features

Maruti Suzuki is slated to launch facelift model of its MPV Ertiga in India in the first half of October. We have already confirmed in a previous post through reliable sources that the updated Ertiga will be equipped with an AMT gearbox mated to the 1.4-lt petrol engine in Vxi variant and will also get Maruti’s SHVS hybrid technology paired to the diesel engine.


Currently, Maruti Suzuki is offering L, V and Z trims in Ertiga however, going forward, the facelift Ertiga will get additional L(O) and Z+ trims as well. Maruti Suzuki has stepped up to equip even the base version of Ertiga with a driver side airbag now however other key safety features like ABS and EBD are given a miss. From the L(O) variant onwards however, the company has standardized 2 front airbags (driver + passenger), seat belt pretentioner with force limiter, ABS and EBD.


Besides the changes made to the exteriors, the base variants are almost as much loaded as they were previously with only a driver-side airbag added to the lowest ‘L’ trim. The ‘V’ trim however gets more value now with new features like 2nd row accessory socket, bluetooth audio, 50:50 split 3rd row, reverse parking sensors and electrically foldable ORVMs adding to the list of features already available in the ‘V’ trim.


The ‘Z’ trim gets all the features mentioned in the ‘V’ trim. The top-of-the-line Z+ variant gets push-button start-stop, touchscreen SmartPlay audio system and reverse parking camera.


Ertiga’s current petrol range starts from INR 5.99 lakh and goes upto INR 7.66 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and diesel range falls between INR 7.48 – INR 8.78 lakh ex-showroom, Delhi. Considering the updates and new additions, it’ll be safe to assume that the base variants might be priced INR 10,000-20,000 more than the current range and top variants might get INR 50,000-70,000 dearer.
