This is the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga MPV, a production version of the Maruti Suzuki Concept rIII that made its debut in Delhi two years ago. I’m quite curious about the name – rIII becomes Ertiga, sounds like Bahasa Malaysia to me!
Sitting on a Suzuki SX4 platform stretched to have a long 2,740mm wheelbase, the 7-seater compact MPV is powered by either a new K-14 model 1.4 liter VVT four cylinder petrol engine or a 1.3 liter Fiat four cylinder turbodiesel engine. That’s actually a pretty long wheelbase, when you compare it to other vehicles in its class.We hear that India will be producing CKD kits to be exported around the world, so this is definitely not an India-only product.
