    Just want to know it is 5-speed or 4-speed automatic transmission. Maruti Suzuki launched only 4-speed automatic cars in india so far. I have been waiting for Ertiga automatic. Please clarify the same.

      Hi Murali

      Sorry for such a late response, as I just read this article! The automatic box in the overseas Ertiga is again a 4-speed unit, as we have seen in the SX4, A-Star and Swift DZire in India so far. Quite outdated I’d say, when compared to the brilliant 5-speed and even dual clutch units we have on offer in the market. The least they could do is offer a 5-speed automatic with the Ertiga. And it STILL does not have automatic climate control. This is quite disappointing to say the least.
