One of the most impressive bits about the new Ertiga 2018 interior will be the space and the quality.  Every seat gets it’s own cup holder and the center console gets a chilled cup holder. The materials will look a lot more premium than they are at the moment. The seat quality, the fabric will be much better than the current vehicle. The cup holders will have a cooling function.

The wheelbase has been increased. This will mean that the new MUV will have better knee room for rear passengers. Whats more they will even offer better space too for the third row of passengers. The India-spec version will get automatic climate control. However there is no cruise control on offer. The second row seat gets a 60:40 split and the third row seat has a 50:50 split. The boot space has increased too.

Maruti Ertiga 2018 Engine and Transmission

In terms of engines, there will be a new 1.5-litre petrol engine that will produce about 103bhp of power and 138Nm of torque. The petrol engine will be offered with the five-speed manual and a automatic four-speed gearbox from the Ciaz. There will be no CNG option available with this engine. It was thought, that a factory fitted unit will be offered. The 1.3-litre diesel engine will produce about 90bhp of power and 200Nm of torque. This is the old DDIS 200 engine and will come with a five-speed manual. There was a expectation that the diesel will come with a new six-speed manual and a AMT option. Maruti seems to be ready to offer AMT on all its vehicles now. Recently the Vitara Brezza also got launched with an AMT in diesel. There is a chance of the Ertiga also getting a diesel AMT later on.

In terms of dimensions, there won’t be a big change. The length has increased a bit and even the height is about 5mm more. The width has also increased. This has improved the space inside the car. The Ertiga now looks matured and more premium. This has worked in its favour and Maruti will continue to add more to its current USP of the Ertiga. There will be an increase in its length and even the bells and whistles too.

Maruti Ertiga 2018 Competition

The Maruti Ertiga 2018 directly competes with Renault’s Lodgy. The Lodgy is a bigger car than the Ertiga. The Renault also offers a more powerful engine with a 6 speed gearbox. The Lodgy has a far bigger boot than the Ertiga and has a bigger fuel tank. There are more features on the Lodgy than the Ertiga. The new car has a lot to rectify and bring back into its favor. The car will win on pricing as the Lodgy is still very expensive. In fact, the Ertiga is still 2 lakh cheaper than the Lodgy.

  • Maruti is always at its lag….They may bring it out only by mid 1919. Ertiga Petrol engine was never powerful enough to drew 7 passengers . Need for a better engine without compromising mileage figures was a need. But Maruti never cared for the need. Instead had been ignoring the need and now when the figures made steep decline, they have decided to address the problem. But the time limit is a question.
