It comes matched to a 4-speed automatic transmission. The petrol MT, or the diesel variant is not sold in Vietnam.

As only a top-end variant is offered, the Ertiga is equipped with features like dual front airbags, ABS, EBD, alloy wheels, music system, rear AC, front and rear power windows and power steering. A total of five colors are offered on the Swift-based MPV.
