Maruti Suzuki Ertiga: Old Vs New
The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga has been the pick of the cars in the MPV segment in India for a long time now. It's spacious enough, rides comfortably and is quite friendly to your wallet. The 2022 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga aims to offer all these aspects plus a few additional creature comforts. Let's take a look at the differences between the new and the outgoing models of the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga.
Maruti Suzuki Ertiga- Design
While the general profile is similar to the previous generation, there are a few design differences, such as a bolder front end with a slightly revised projector headlight cluster and a new pattern on the front grille. It also receives new bumpers that have been reworked. The 2022 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga side design has chrome door handles and a single conspicuous crease to give it a sporty look.
The most noticeable difference has to be the new set of 16-inch alloy wheels and a new chrome strip on the boot. There are two new colour options as well, Splendid Silver and Dignity Brown.
Maruti Suzuki Ertiga- Engine and Mileage
The 2022 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga facelift now gets the updated 1.5-litre K15C four-cylinder petrol. This motor comes equipped with the DualJet tech which improves overall efficiency and driveability although power figures have dropped marginally by 2PS and 1 Nm to 103PS and 136.8 Nm. In the CNG variant, the outputs drop slightly to 100PS and 136 Nm in the petrol mode while in the CNG mode this drops further to 88PS and 121.5 Nm.
Maruti Suzuki has ditched the old 4-speed torque converter automatic transmission and has replaced it with a 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. The new Maruti Ertiga has a better fuel efficiency than the previous model. Its manual versions are expected to return 20.51 kmpl, while automatic ones are to be somewhere around the 20.30 kmpl mark.
