In India, families are comprised with more than 5 members at a high rate. With regard to this fact, Ertiga, the new compact 3-row, 7-seater developed to be comfortable even with 7 members on board, is exhibited. Aimed to fulfill the lineup and to meet the customers’ needs, Maruti Suzuki has announced that the model will be launched in the spring of 2012.
The Ertiga is uniquely positioned with its lightweight and compact body and small engine displacement. The model is launched in India in the aim of pioneering a new market of compact 3-row seaters.
The Ertiga’s compact body still offers spacious and comfortable cabin space where adults can be seated at the third row without feeling crammed. The size also contributes to good maneuverability.
The small displacement in engine also realizes fuel efficiency and economy. The engine line-up is 1.4L K14B petrol and 1.3L D13A diesel.
