The Ertiga has been very important for the manufacturer with the launch of other MUVs like the Mahindra Marazzo which have turned out to be very important/successful launches. Now with a competitor in place, the Maruti now plans to introduce another variant to this car, the 2019 Maruti Suzuki Ertia Cross which will be a New Maruti six-seater and like the Celario and Celario X, the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Cross will look more butch, aggressive and will sport an SUV stance. This Etriga Cross will share a lot of its components, body panels and features with the current Ertiga and will be an exclusive product for the brand’s NEXA dealerships. The 2019 Maruti Ertiga Cross will retain the same specs as the 2018 Maruti Ertiga.
Some of the key things to know about this new Maruti six-seater are-
- It is thought to be available only through NEXA showrooms
- Cross will look sportier and have new color options available
- Only one engine and transmission option will be available
- Cross will be available in only one variant
- The higher ground clearance will be an added benefit

2019 Maruti Ertiga Cross Launch
The 2019 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Cross can be expected to launch in the next month and should come before the start of the festive season. A new Maruti six-seater will be a good update to follow the launch of the new Ertiga and a few more cars in 2019. Launching in August will give Maruti a boost in its Nexa portfolio where they have been lacking. A new product there could trigger sales.

2019 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Cross Interiors
The 2019 Ertiga Cross will get a lot of new sporty bits and visual changes. But when we talk about the interior, the car will be mostly the same. We will see at the most, the color of the upholstery lean towards black, sportier stitching and Maruti could have some badging of the word ‘Cross’ somewhere etched. There will be no other changes here. The new Maruti six-seater could get a sunroof, cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, auto headlamps and a better entertainment system at most.
2019 Maruti Ertiga Cross Design
Design is where the new Maruti six-seater will be a bit different visually than the regular Ertiga. The body cladding, bigger tires and flared wheel arches will be the pronounced features of the exterior. We could also see Maruti take things one step ahead and give us the car with new smoked headlamps, a new sportier spoiler and blacked out mirrors and door handles. The roofline will be a bit more racked down plus the front and rear bumpers will be completely different. The Ertiga Cross will also get some other accessories like a body kit to make it lower and give it a meaner stance. The chrome bits on the grille and the rear could vanish for more sportier black inserts. The new Maruti six-seater will also get better ground clearance and a more SUVish appeal.
And last but not least, the 2019 Ertiga Cross could be introduced with a few new colors and obviously the NEXA blue because it will be sold from Maruti’s premium dealerships.
Maruti Ertiga Cross Specifications
The Maruti Ertiga Cross will be a great new Maruti six-seater to consider if you want to get a petrol engine that with make 104bhp and 150Nm of torque. This car will not be offered in a diesel variant but if Maruti could also get the new 1.5-liter diesel engine it will broaden the customer base. The new BS6 compliant 1.5-liter petrol engine will come on this car. The car will get better ground clearance and new tyres too and will be offered with a manual plus soon to be introduced automatic transmission with the petrol engine. The car will be similar in every other manner.
Maruti Ertiga Cross Competition
The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Cross will continue to compete with the Mahindra Marazzo, Honda BRV and knock hard on the doors of the Toyota Innova. This new Maruti six-seater will be the car that could take up the sales leader position in the Nexa outlets. More footfalls can be expected in the showrooms where people who want the versatility of the Ertiga but not the boring looks can shop for one. The Cross will make the portfolio more versatile too. The 2019 Maruti Suzuki Cross will be offered with many accessories also.
