The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Limited Edition is made available in both petrol and diesel engine options and the features list mimics the mid-level V grade
In the last one year, Maruti Suzuki has been selling around 5,000 units of the Ertiga MPV every month. Despite the rise in popularity of SUVs and crossovers, the sales of Ertiga have always been on a decent patch along with another top-selling MPV, the Innova Crysta. Suzuki’s Indonesia division took the veils off the new generation Ertiga last month and it is expected to go on sale in India this August.
Based on a new platform, it has already been spotted testing several times and is proportionally superior compared to the existing model. Ahead of its introduction, however, Maruti Suzuki has now launched a new special edition called the ‘Limited Edition’, whose arrival is understandable, as it needs to sell the current version faster.
The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Limited Edition is made available in both petrol and diesel engine options and the features list mimics the mid-level V grade. However, to make it stand out from the regular Ertiga, Maruti Suzuki has applied some noticeable changes on the outside as well as inside.
The sporty exterior modifications include Limited Edition badges, chrome treated fog lamp bezel, chromed out side moulding, rear integrated spoiler, and multi-spoke alloy wheels. As for the interior, it features a contrast dark red theme with faux wood inlay on the console, two-tone seat cover, ambient lighting, front centre armrest and red seat covers with white surrounds among others.
Maruti Suzuki offers the Ertiga Limited Edition in three exclusive colour schemes such as Exquisite Maroon, Superior White and Silky Grey. The powertrain continues to be the same as the special edition uses 1.4-litre petrol and 1.3-litre SHVS diesel engines producing 94 bhp and 130 Nm, and 89 bhp and 200 Nm outputs respectively.
Both engines can be had in five-speed manual transmission as standard, while the petrol unit gains four-speed automatic in higher variants. The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Limited Edition costs Rs. 7.80 lakh for petrol and Rs. 9.71 lakh for diesel (ex-showroom, New Delhi). For the cosmetic changes, buyers would have to shell out around Rs. 15,000 compared to the standard V trim.
