Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.

Changes are identical to the Indonesian-spec 2015 Suzuki Eritga.

Following the unveil of the facelifted Suzuki Ertiga at the GIIAS 2015, its Indian counterpart, the 2016 Maruti Ertiga, is expected to launch on October 10.
