Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Gets A Price Hike Of Rs 6,000
All models of the Ertiga MPV now cost Rs 6,000 more thanks to Maruti Suzuki. The popular MPV’s price has increased, but the automaker has also made a few safety features standard across the board.
The Ertiga’s starting price has increased to Rs. 8.41 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). With a starting price of Rs. 8.35 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the mid-life update for the MPV was introduced in April. It is still unknown, though, whether the costs for the CNG variants have also increased.
Hill Hold Assist and the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) have also been made standard across all models by Maruti Suzuki. Prior to this, the ZXI+ manual transmission version and the automatic transmission variations were the only ones featuring these safety measures.
The updated Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, which was introduced in April, has a mild hybrid system and a 1.5-liter petrol engine with DualJet technology that produces 103 horsepower and 137 Nm. It can be combined with either the new 6-speed paddle-shift automatic gearbox from Maruti Suzuki or 5-speed manual transmission.
The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga received new dual-tone alloy wheels, a redesigned front grille with an incorporated “winged” chrome trim, and a chrome garnish on the tailgate. Additionally, it now comes in Splendid Silver and Dignity Brown as two additional colors. Maruti Suzuki upgraded the inside with dual-tone fabric for the seats and a dashboard veneer with a Metallic Teak Wooden finish.
A major portion of Maruti Suzuki’s 3.4 lakh-unit order backlog, which includes the Ertiga, is for this vehicle. There is a nine-month waiting list for the MPV’s CNG version, according to sources. This is because of the MPV’s exceptionally high demand.
