Maruti Suzuki Ertiga base petrol and diesel trims discontinued

Previously we had reported about Maruti Suzuki discontinuing the base diesel variant of the Ertiga MPV in India. Now, a report from CarWale states that Maruti Suzuki has decided to discontinue both the petrol and diesel base variants. The decision has been made due to low demand for the base variants.

The report states that Maruti Suzuki has asked the dealers to stop accepting bookings for the base LXi and LDi variants from Mach 1, 2019. But the company will clear all the pending orders. The report also states that most of the sales are coming from the top variants. The V trim accounts for 30 percent of the sales and half of the total sales are coming from the Z and Z+ trims.

The discontinuation of the base models of the Ertiga will also reduce the waiting period as the company focus on the mid and top-spec variants.  But the dealers are still having unsold inventories of the base variant of the Ertiga. To clear the stocks, expect some discount offers on the base variants of the Ertiga.

Maruti Suzuki will also introduce the new in-house developed 1.5-litre diesel engine on the Ertiga The new 1.5-litre unit will replace the Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre diesel engine. The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga has been one of the best-selling MPV in India. The Maruti Ertiga is also a value for money MPV as it comes with a host of premium features.
