Suzuki Eritga (Maruti Ertiga) with a new front-end caught in Indonesia – Spied
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Likely to be a one-off modified concept for the 2015 GIIAS.
A spyshot of a Suzuki Ertiga equipped with a sporty-looking body kit has emerged from Indonesia. It’s unlikely to be the facelifted Suzuki Ertiga, as it clearly doesn’t fall in line with the conservative design of the pre-production model that was caught undisguised in India.
The car could be a concept equipped with a one-off body kit, similar to the Maruti Ertiga Altair, or a range-topping variant like the Suzuki Ertiga Sporty that’s specific to an Indonesian sub-segment. The only spyshot of the front end reveals an aggressive bumper with bold chrome element, sculpted foglamp enclosures, a low black grille with vertical slats, a chrome line running between the two headlamps, and LED DRLs.
Under the hood, the Suzuki Ertiga packs a 1.4-liter K-Series (K14B) VVT petrol engine, which produces 95 PS power and 130 Nm of peak torque in the current model. While a 5-speed manual is offered as standard in lower variants, the 4-speed automatic could be replaced with a 5-speed AMT (automated manual transmission) for better fuel consumption.
The sporty-looking Suzuki Ertiga is expected to join the 2016 Suzuki Ertiga at the 2015 GIIAS. The launch of the 2016 Maruti Ertiga could take place in the festive season.
