Rumour: Ertiga-based crossover to be unveiled by end-2019


According to a leaked document, Suzuki Indonesia is planning to unveil a new crossover SUV based on the second generation Ertiga. The new model is expected to be unveiled by end-2019.

Details about the new crossover are scarce at this moment. But, we can expect the car to feature a more rugged look. While it might share some of its exterior styling elements with the Ertiga, the crossover could get additional bits like chunky wheel arches, body cladding and bumpers with skid plates.

The SUV version might get the same powertrain options as the Ertiga. In India, the Ertiga is offered with two engine options - a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol with 103 BHP and 138 Nm of torque and a 1.3-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine that puts out 89 BHP and 200 Nm of torque. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic.

It is not yet known if Maruti Suzuki will introduce the Ertiga-based SUV in India.
