The new Ertiga carries over the engine lineup from the outgoing model, but with slight improvements. The petrol variant is powered by a 1.4-liter K14B engine, which has been tuned to deliver a better fuel mileage of 17.5 km/l. The Vxi trim is now available with a 4-speed automatic transmission as an option.

The diesel variant with the 1.3-liter DDiS 200 engine now benefits from the SHVS technology, which incorporates a Start/Stop system, torque assist, gear shift indicator and brake energy recuperation. As a result, fuel efficiency has been improved by 18 percent to deliver 24.52 km/l.
