Based on the top-end Ertiga GX variant, Indomobil Suzuki presented a concept version named ‘Suzuki Ertiga Sporty‘ at the Indonesian International Motor Show 2013 (IIMS 2013).
At last year’s edition of the show, Suzuki had a few similar concepts on view, and so was the case at the Auto Expo. The reaction to these concept cars would be gauged and a production model, or a special edition version, can be planned using it. In most cases, these special editions are planned and executed in a partnership with a design agency and don’t have any role after the show is over.
The Suzuki Ertiga Sporty has production-ready accessories such as projector headlamps, twin slat dull finish grille, new contrast front bumper, new foglights, redesigned air intake, brushed metal bumper insert, lip spoiler, side skirting, low profile tires shod on chrome plated rims, roof spoiler, new rear bumper with a faux diffuser, twin exhaust tips and chrome garnish above the number plate enclosure.
The Ertiga Sporty’s mechanicals are untouched. In Indonesia, the Ertiga is also available with a four-speed manual transmission, apart from the five speed manual. Just one engine option is offered – a 1.4L K Series petrol that develops 95PS of peak power and 130Nm of peak torque.
