Maruti Suzuki’s facelifted Ertiga MPV to be launched soon

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga facelift will rival the Mahindra Marazzo, Kia Carens, as well as the upcoming Maruti Suzuki XL6 facelift

Maruti Suzuki is likely to launch the mid-cycle facelift of its Ertiga MPV in mid-April, just before the launch of the new XL6. While no major cosmetic changes are expected with the facelift, it could have major updates under the hood.

The new Ertiga will come with its usual seven seats and will feature the more premium XL6 in Maruti Suzuki’s lineup.

The new Ertiga has started testing the vehicle on our roads and it looks like changes to the MPV will be limited to a new grille, similar to the updated Baleno.

Under the skin, however, the Ertiga will undergo major changes. It will come with a more fuel-efficient 1.5-litre petrol engine and the outdated 4-speed automatic gearbox will be replaced by a new 6-speed engine.

The new Ertiga and XL6 are part of Maruti Suzuki’s plan to launch six new models by mid-2022. These include the Baleno CNG, the updated Vitara Brezza and the DualJet-equipped Ignis and S-Presso. Later in the year, Maruti Suzuki will launch the all-new Creta rival mid-sized SUV that is being co-developed with Toyota.

The Ertiga facelift will rival those of the Mahindra Marazzo, Kia Carens, as well as the upcoming Maruti Suzuki XL6 facelift.
