Although not officially announced in the Philippines, Maruti Suzuki has teased the latest iteration of the Ertiga MPV and has announced that pre-bookings have begun in India.
The new 2022 Ertiga will be boasting a 1.5-liter K-series Dual Jet VVT engine with Smart Hybrid Technology. This should make the Ertiga ready to take on the roads with the best fuel efficiency we’ve seen from it. It will also be mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. This is good news considering prior models of the Ertiga only came with a dated 4-speed torque converter. Other new features to expect are updates to its infotainment system with a new 7-inch SmartPlay Pro touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
“With over 750,000 delighted customers, Ertiga has been a game-changer in India’s MPV market. We are pleased to introduce the Next-Gen Ertiga, that redefines style, space, technology, safety, comfort and convenience of traveling together. The Next-Gen Ertiga will have thoughtful newage features, an upgraded powertrain and advanced 6-speed automatic transmission. We are confident that the Next-Gen Ertiga will further delight customers, offering them a more fuel-efficient, powerful, technologically advanced and stylish companion for long journeys together with their loved ones.”
– Shashank Srivastava, Senior Executive Director (Marketing & Sales) at Maruti Suzuki India Limited
