Maruti Suzuki is all set for another new launch. Maruti Suzuki will launch the premium six-seater version of the Ertiga in India. Autocar India reports that the new six-seater Ertiga will be launched in the Indian market on August 21, 2019. The Ertiga six-seater will be a premium offering and it will be sold through the Nexa dealership network.
Maruti Suzuki has been testing the premium avatar of the Ertiga on Indian roads for quite some time. The six-seater Ertiga will feature a new front end with a redesigned grille with chrome treatment for a more premium look. The six-seater MPV will also feature new headlamps, LED DRls and body cladding.
The interior of the Maruti Ertiga six-seater will feature two captain seats in the second row and two passenger bench seat in the third row. The overall design of the interior will be similar to the currently sold Ertiga. The premium Ertiga might also get the new SmartPlay Studio infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The six-seater version of the Ertiga is likely to draw power from the new 1.5-litre petrol engine which was also introduced on the Ciaz. The engine will be mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and a 4-speed automatic gearbox could be introduced at a later stage. The six-seater Ertiga might be a fitting rival for the segment-leader Toyota Innova Crysta.
