Ertiga was Maruti’s entry into the seven seater MUV segment. Though it has had stints with the Omni, Versa and Eeco, the Maruti Ertiga turned out to be a very successful vehicle and ushered in a new sub-segment all together. It is not as big as the Innova or the Lodgy but it has managed to attract many customers with its value proposition. It is more compact although being a seven-seater.  Maruti has also introduced an upgrade and the new Maruti Ertiga facelift gets some cosmetic changes and a new variant too. So, what does the New Maruti Ertiga have on offer? We share our detailed review.

New Maruti Ertiga Design

The upgrades on the New Maruti Ertiga are not major. A new chrome front grille is introduced, which the company claims makes it look more premium. The new front grille does make the New Maruti Ertiga look different and refreshed. Chrome is what customers generally like. The new front bumper gets a chrome eye brow on the fog lamp. A new bumper also makes way here. The side profile of the New Maruti Ertiga remains unchanged. The rear gets a thick Ertiga embossed chrome lip. The alloy wheels are also new.

New Maruti Ertiga Interiors

A new variant, Z+ is introduced in the New Maruti Ertiga. This variant gets additional features like keyless entry, push start and stop, touchscreen system with navigation and reverse parking camera. The New Maruti Ertiga gets the same beige interiors and the upholstery is also the same. In terms of other features, it gets single airbags and ABS as a standard feature. Dual airbags is available on all variants as an optional feature.

The New Maruti Ertiga has an identical dashboard with the Swift, however it is beige in colour. The quality of the materials is not that premium. The front row of seats are quite comfortable and even large. On long journeys this helps quite a bit. The rear seat space too on the New Maruti Ertiga is good enough. These seats slide and recline too. The third row is quite cramped, but it gets some knee room when the second row seats are moved a bit ahead. The boot becomes small when all the seats are raised. One needs a carrier for luggage especially with seven passengers.

New Maruti Ertiga Engine

The New Maruti Ertiga comes both in petrol and diesel. A CNG version is also available, which comes in only variant. The engines  have good driveability. They are easy to drive in city and there isn’t much a need to shift gears that often. This makes it a lot easier to drive in the city. There is sufficient power in the engine to cruise on the highway.

The CNG variant comes only in the VXi variant. It isn’t very powerful and is more for economy. If you have a good amount of driving in the city, you might have to fill CNG even day. All the engines on the Maruti Ertiga facelift are refined and have low NVH. The diesel could have had a bit more power though. All the engines come with a five-speed manual transmission. The petrol even has an option of a four-speed automatic too.
