Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Test Drive – Reviews, First Drive, Images, Details, Video & Specifications


Maruti Suzuki has unveiled the first images & a promotional Video too for the recently unveiled Maruti Suzuki Ertiga. Maruti said it will offer front dual airbags, ABS and EBD on Ertiga variants.

The MPV was first disclosed during the spy shots in June 2011 and fully exposed during September 2011. Though, they were just the spy shots captured by our eagle eyed readers across the country. 

The MPV is made on the existing Ritz platform and will mark the company’s foray into the MPV segment. The MPV though will be a seven seater, will make you remind of Ritz and the new Swift as the front of this MPV resembles the Ritz and the rear end along with the Wheel arches resembles the new Swift.

The Ertiga is a seven seater car which is likely to compete with the existing Toyota Innova and Mahindra Xylo. The length of the car is 4.2 metre and thus we include the car in mini-MPV segment. The 2740mm wheelbase justifies the space for three rows and seven seats. Though, the car would not match Innova when compared in terms of space but otherwise the second and third row will carry roof mounted AC vents for comfort even to the passengers in the third row. The company is not providing climate controlled air conditioner even on the ZXi variants.

Maruti will also add another motor to its popular K-series family - the K14. As the name suggests, the K14 is a 1.4-litre petrol motor that is equipped with variable-valve timing (VVT). It will displace 1372cc and deliver a decent 95bhp. The Ertiga will also be powered by the popular 1.3-litre Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT) diesel from the SX4

The exact pricing of the car will be specified by the officials later, but we speculate the car to be launched within a price range of Rs 6-9 Lakhs.
