The Ertiga has been one of the is the long standing MPV in the market that has been doing very well. It has gotten a complete makeover in late 2018 which introduced a lot of changes in terms of the design as well as the interiors. The car is a major success because the MPV segment has not been doing well generally in India but the Ertiga defies that. The Ertiga has been revamped in Thailand getting some new features and other updates. Find out the updates that it gets below.
The car gets a bigger ten inch touch screen infotainment system. This makes it the biggest screen in any markets to be fitted in an Ertiga. For reference, the Indian market gets a seven inch one. The infotainment system is the same in its features and comes with the same Apple Car Play, Android Auto, bluetooth, Usb and Aux connectivity. The touchscreen also seems to be of higher resolution displaying better graphics.
From the outside, the Ertiga has gained a set of two tone wheels as well. In addition to the 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system, the Suzuki Ertiga sold in Thailand has received Burgundy Red exterior colour and new 15-inch alloy wheels in a dual-tone finish. Suzuki could bring in these updates to the Indian market as well. We do expect the aforementioned new features seen in Thailand to be added to the India lineup as well in the near future.
The car is sold in petrol and CNG forms with the BS6 compliant engines and there is no diesel BS6 engine as of now as Maruti is not bringing in diesel BS6 engines in many of its models. The petrol engine produces 103bhp and 138nm of torque. It is mated to a four speed automatic and a five speed manual as well. It has a claimed mileage of 19.34 kmpl for the manual. It gets the mild hybrid technology from Maruti.
The lowest LXI variant comes at a price of 7.49 lakhs ex showroom Mumbai to 10.13 lakhs for the ZXI AT variant. In Thailand, the car is sold in two trims and they are priced at THB 6,59,000 (Rs. 15.20 lakh) for the GL and THB 7,25,000 (Rs. 16.73 lakh) for the GX model. It must be noted that Suzuki’s Thai division sells the Ertiga after being imported from Indonesia. In India it competes with the likes of the Mahindra Marazzo. Check out our review on the Ertiga:
