Rumour: 2nd-gen Maruti Ertiga bookings open

The second generation Ertiga is rumoured to be launched on November 21, 2018. According to a media report, Maruti dealers have started accepting bookings, while deliveries are expected to commence by the end of next month.

The new Ertiga has a similar wheelbase as the outgoing model. However, it is longer and wider. It has a new grille with chrome inserts flanked by re-profiled headlamp clusters. The front bumper has also been redesigned and now features triangular fog lamp pods. At the rear, the new Ertiga comes with L-shaped tail lamps and a new bumper. It has dual-tone interiors with a new dashboard, which houses a touchscreen infotainment system. It comes equipped with a 3-spoke multi-function steering wheel and a revised twin-dial instrument cluster.

In India, the Ertiga is expected to get a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine with mild hybrid technology. The engine could be mated to a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission. Additionally, the MPV is also likely to come with a 1.3-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine.
