Maruti Ertiga facelift demo vehicle with SHVS – Spied
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Will reportedly launch on October 15.
Courtesy of GaadiWaadi, spyshots of the Maruti Ertiga facelift, including test drive models, have surfaced online. Reports suggest that the facelifted Maruti Ertiga will make its debut on October 15.
The spyshots reveal the Ertiga ZDI+ variant, which has the SHVS badge on the tailgate – further confirming the presence of the SHVS mild hybrid tech in the 2016 Ertiga diesel variant. It will feature a start/stop system, brake energy recuperation, and torque assist. With the SHVS tech, fuel mileage will certainly be higher than the regular diesel variant, and could be the most fuel efficient diesel MPV in the segment.
The facelifted Ertiga gets a new triple-slat chrome grille, re-designed lower bumper with chrome accents for the foglamp enclosures, and a new 5-spoke alloy wheel design. However, it doesn’t get the extended reflectors for the taillamps that were seen in the Indonesian-spec Suzuki Ertiga.
Inside, the facelifted Maruti Ertiga comes with 50:50 split for the third row seats, power-folding ORVMs, and Auto Up power window for the driver. A variant-wise feature list of the Ertiga facelift can be found here.
