First two rows space looks ample but third row legroom is a big question mark. If they offer removable seats for the third row then it will be a spacious 5 seater with a humongous boot.

Ertiga? seriously? Sounds like a disease. "I've got ertiga and six months to live."

You might have to wait for six months just to get your Ertiga post booking.

Ertiga? Rhymes with Vertigo.

Anyways, Nice Scoop covering the whole car.
Hope the pricing would be appropriate for Indian market. Be ready Innova

Any definitive information when this car will be launched? Some sources say Jan 2012, and Rushlane says June 2012. Thats too far off. The diesel engine is nothing new, why would they need time until June next year to test it? It was first seen in June this year.

The Ertiga could be the wild card in the MPV segment. Though its smaller than the Innova, I am sure it will take lots of sales away from the mighty Toyota

Being developed in Ritz platform, will there be any increase in overall width and height of the vehicle?

In some pictures, the proportions of the vehicle doesn't look good, especially length wise.

You put it brilliantly! Just what the masses are asking for! Maruti playing the value card again, beautifully. The Eeco was a great example. This will be encore.. Secondly, I dont think there would be any issues with the 1.4L K-series or even the 1.3L DDiS. Havent driven the SX4 DDIS, but heard its super-cool from a close friend.

IMO, the width remains the same, but height is increased.

BTW, the above pic resembles Mitsubishi Outlander too much.

Even from the pictures, the height of the car at A-pillar is similar to Ritz. So it seems that the height increase will be for 2nd row and 3rd row.
But a bit more on width would have been ideal for this length.

Maruti has tried to get rid of the arched roof of Ritz, so, may have raised the rear roof a bit.

What Maruti designers aimed may be a good city family mover. Thinking a compact Innova (original LxW: 4580mmx1770mm) will do the job, they may have fixed Ertiga at a LxW: 4265mmx1680mm, IMO.

This is more in the 7 seater Toyota Avanza territory and suits the bill perfectly for me.
However I am concerned about the first iteration of the product.
So far, afaik, Maruti India has only done comparatively minor modifications to Suzuki products like attaching a boot to SX4 and Swift hatches and removing all kit from a Versa to give SX4, Dezire and Eeco respectively.
This seems a greater engineering effort where the wheelbase is increased to an amount that could majorly affect handling and safety. I am hoping the car comes out of the factory glitch free.

Maruti should have gone for a sharper front end a la Aria instead of the rounded bonnet of the Swift, which IMO just doesnt gel with the rest of the car.

But then again, maybe this is just Maruti's take on the family face !
