I thought there were rumours about two cars based on this platform, one ertiga and other an SUV, and the SUV would go to Nexa.
Since it is moving to Nexa the price also might become more "premium".

I do not think any SUV is coming. It is going to be an Ertiga and Ertiga Cross Over, code named YHA and YHB. This is my understanding based on the information shared earlier in this forum/other forums.

Oh yes I meant the crossover only, thanks for correcting. So if and when the crossover comes, it may come to Maruti if this version goes to Nexa, or vice versa.

Arena will not get the bigger Maruti models, larger idea of NEXA is to give a premium experience to those paying top dollar for a Maruti.

Arena will get the 7-seat version of Wagon R, and the new Ertiga and the YHB derivative based off it (tipped to become the flagship with unique styling and the largest dimensions for a Maruti) would sell under NEXA.

Informative video on how the Heartect platform of Suzuki achieves better vehicle characteristics (safety, rigidity, handling, etc) despite around 15% lower weight

New Ertiga seen along with Honda Mobilio, testing continues.

Expect an October launch. Will Suzuki's 1.5L diesel engine debut in Ertiga?

So much of testing? IIRC itís almost an year of testing if itís launched in October. Is this long testing for 1.5 Diesel?

Now that the boot is reasonable with three rows of seats, I think Maruti should consider offering a cover similar to hatchback cars to hide the boot's contents. Current Ertiga's boot is not very visible from rear glass because of its small size, but looking at the rear photo above, it seems it is now easily visible from the rear glass.

Since the first proto car is built, it takes 1-1.5 years on an average to mass productionise. It is par for the course.

Since it will be compliant to BS VI extensive testing will be needed in all driving conditions.

2018 Suzuki Ertiga Sport concept leaked.


Quote:
This new concept, called the Suzuki Ertiga Sport, gets custom brown paint, large wheels with low-profile tyres and an all around body kit that includes add-ons to the front and rear bumpers and side skirts. The concept MPV also gets a custom Suzuki mesh grille and darkened headlamps. Additionally, the vehicle seems to sit a bit lower than the stock model, which means there could be some suspension tweaks as well.
The tweaked Ertiga, which will be revealed at the show, looks like a display vehicle and may not go into series production.
The Indonesian spec model of the all-new Ertiga comes with a 1.5-litre petrol that’s mated to either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic. Maruti is likely to introduce the new Ertiga in the Indian market later this year.

Shapur Kotwal overall praises the new Ertiga for:

1. Styling
2. Increased Space
3. Compact (large hatch) feeling while driving
4. Interiors feel more luxurious.
5. Increased space in third row.
6. Engine with increased oomph.

The new 1.5 engine is based on the current 1.4 and has similar characteristics with increased power and torque. So NVH is still an issue. Indian top models will get the smartplay infotainment system and electronic AC controls. I hope Maruti gives the option of black interiors and save us from that beige overdose!!
I hope Maruti prices it sensibly and the sport version looks awesome with the grill and DRLs. IMO this will definitely snatch away some numbers from Innova.

Could't find any drive reviews (English) in Web for Indonesia's Ertiga. Kudos to ACI for doing an initial review. As Shapur says, pricing is key for Ertiga to disrupt sedan and compact SUVs in that range.
