6th gear seems pretty much useless for the petrol as there isn't much torque produced by the engine, plus to accommodate the 6th gears, the gearing ratios would have also been changed which will lead to frequent gear changes and fatigue.

I feel 4+1(overdrive) are enough for a 1.5 petrol hauling 7 on board.

Yes your right, i have it in my current Ertiga, its the previous dzire accessory which fits on Ertiga as well. Only problem is it creaks and isnt great when bolted on the existing centre console.

The whole issue is that the center console is held onto its location by a clamp bolted onto the floor on one side while the other side is just clips.

With this, no matter how sturdy your armrest is and how rigidly it is fixed to the center console, it is bound to shake and creak because the support (center console) keeps moving/shaking. By fixing the armrest over the center console, you are allowing the center console to shake more with less effort .

If one can fix the center console in such a way that it doesn't move around much, the Armrest will be a good fit but for this, you will need similar metal clamps in the front part of the center console too.

With the addition of Climate control and Projector headlamps and other small bits , my guess is that the price will increase by 30,000 variant to variant.

2018 ERTIGA ( Indonesia) first impressions - The MPV is built in Indonesia and there could be differences to the upcoming Indian variant.

Exterior : Shades of Toyota Innova especially if looked closely from the headlights to the grille.
Suzuki Ertiga does not have a wide grille and layered with chrome.

Alloys are of a new design and tyres are of Dunlop Enasave tires with in 15"

Quote:
Bulit quality on the exterior feels solid and solid, and each door panel is supplied with a thick double damping rubber. The side of this car is relatively no different though there is a floating roof accent on the D pillar
Moving to the rear it seems like the design from Mitsubishi's Xpander.

Interiors:

Quote:
This car dashboard just picked from Suzuki Swift Dzire in India, but with beige colors and wooden ornaments are striking, even the steering also coated wood. At the door, there is a fabric material that feels good quality.

we like that the built quality Ertiga is okay to have still presented. Plastic material feels thick and good installation. Thick and padded seats are sure to make anyone who occupy it feel comfortable and comfortable. Complete seat settings, there are elevation, sliding and reclining,

Quote:
Sitting in the second row of the new Suzuki Ertiga, the space available is still fairly tolerable for the feet and heads of adults. Seats can be shifted back and forth and can be made upright or down, the thickness is still good and comfortable to occupy. There are pockets for storing our entry at the door and behind the front seat, and the second row passenger is entitled to a double blower air conditioner with ventilation and an air-conditioning knob sitting on the ceiling
Quote:
Suzuki also seemed reluctant to make access to the third row bench wider. They survive with the one-touch sliding method that shift the seat is not how, and when we go in the third row bench, the existing room tends to mediocre for adults, because the leg room and head left little space
Conclusion: Not fair to do without a drive, however here is it until then.


Misses :

Quote:
a downgrade in the form of loss of armrest for second row bench. The third row cabin room is also relatively unchanged, still the narrowest, as well as the trunk even though the folding flat floor. Bezel head unit that is too thick and cheap was slightly tarnish its interior aura, and if only the rear brake discs us
Ertiga Suzuki, considering the new chassis, new engine and if seen from the price, this car is still quite worth the money.

So what could be the reason for delaying the India launch of this car? Could it be the new diesel engine? Are the test mules running the diesel engine?

Yes, they are running with the newly minted in-house Suzuki 1.5L DDiS inside.

Someone who has driven it recently has reported back that it's quite powerful and peppy, both inside the city and on the highways.

Avinash,

You waited for someone to post questions and only then replied a very nice scoop. I guess you are still sceptical to share these titbits after the Nexon episode. Please do not refrain from sharing your scoops just because someone over-expected based on your feedbacks. We eagerly wait for your early bird information's like these.

Any chance of this engine being planted in the Brezza?

For meeting the next emissions norms, the DDiS will be replaced in all Suzuki cars.

If it is same 4 speed AT as the one in Indonesian Ertiga, why are they testing it again? Could it be a CVT?
