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 variant like the Celario and Celario X. The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Cross will look more butch, aggressive and will sport an SUV stance. The 2019 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Cross will retain the same specs as the 2018 Maruti Ertiga.

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 car could get a sunroof, cruise control, rain sensing wipers, auto headlamps and a better entertainment system at most.
2019 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Cross Design
This is where the car will not very different visually than the regular 2018 Ertiga. The body cladding, bigger tyres 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 car 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 car will also get better ground clearance.
And last but not the least, the 2019 Maruti Suzuki 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.
