Refurbished Maruti Ertiga will be launched on 10th October to cash in on the festive boom as reported by AutoColumn earlier. Maruti Suzuki has showcased the updated Ertiga at 2015 GIIAS (Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show) in August.
On the exterior we can see a new three slat grill , chrome eyebrows over the fog lamps, redesigned bumper.On the rear, tail lamps haven’t changed. A chrome bridge connecting the tail lights with Ertiga embossed on it gives a wider look to it. Additional reflector light have been given space on the rear bumper. The alloy wheels have also been tweaked a bit.
On the inside, we might get chrome circumference for the speedometer and tachometer. Other updates include new 3rd row seats with 50:50 split fold, new fabric seat upholstery, and new colors for the steering wheel, floor carpet, gear-knob and dashboard. The company says that it has improved the noise and vibration insulation. Suzuki has also added ORVMs, Auto Up power window in the drivers side, optional socket console box in the second row, dual airbags and ABS taking up the safety aspect a few notches higher.
The engine remains the same 1.4-liter K-Series VVT petrol engine that has been detuned by 3 PS to produce 92 PS power and 130 Nm of peak torque. It will continue offering a 5-speed manual gearbox and 4-speed automatic transmission has been added as an option on the higher variants. SHVS will be offered just like the one on Suzuki Ciaz. The SHVS will come with Deceleration Energy Regeneration system that sends wasted energy into an electrical system for storage. This system takes load off the alternator which improves fuel economy over a period of time.
2015 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga will come in three variants, GA, GL, GX. Snow White Pearl, Cool Black Pearl, Silky Silver Metallic, Burgundy Red Pearl, Radiant Red Pearl Metallic and Graphite Gray would be the color options to choose from for the customers.
