Maruti has launched the facelifted Ertiga with prices starting at Rs 5.99 lakh lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the base LXi petrol model.
The main change to the Ertiga facelift lies under the hood. The 1.3 multi-jet diesel engine, developing 89bhp and 200Nm of torque, will now come with SHVS small hybrid system that debuted with Ciaz hybrid. The engine is mated to five-speed manual transmission. The regular diesel engine is phased out and the new Ertiga diesel is available with hybrid engine only. 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.
A new automatic transmission is available with the petrol engine. The 1.4-litre K Series petrol engine producing 94bhp and 130Nm is mated to five-speed transmission. Fuel efficiency are up by 18% to 24.52 kmpl on the diesel version and Maruti says the petrol K14B engine has also been reworked and now offers 17.5 kmpl which is up 10%..
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.
The interior is updated up with engine start/stop button, new upholstery, electric folding mirrors and keyless entry and SmartPlay infotainment system, depending upon the variants. Maruti Suzuki has taken special effort to increase safety. The driver-side airbag is now standard from the base trim while ABS and front passenger airbag are optional. The safety option adds Rs 35,000 to the base trim’s Rs 5.99 lakh price tag
