The 2018 Suzuki Ertiga (2018 Maruti Ertiga) will have its world premiere (at IIMS 2018) in Indonesia, but it will enter production in India first as per a report from Autonetmagz.

Indonesia will get the next-gen Suzuki Ertiga as a CBU import from India initially, Autonetmagz reports.

The next-gen Suzuki Ertiga’s market launch in Indonesia was expected to coincide with its debut as dealerships have already started pre-orders. In that case, it was logical to expect Suzuki manufacturing the all-new model locally, as that ensures the fastest time to market, but that is not the case.

The first-gen Suzuki Ertiga sold in Indonesia is reliant on the Indian factory for components. Citing undisclosed sources, the report says that Indonesia will get the next-gen Suzuki Ertiga as a CBU import from India initially following which a localization program would begin. Longer and wider than the first-gen model, the next-gen Suzuki Ertiga will have a more contemporary exterior design and a dashboard layout similar to that of the third-gen Maruti Dzire. It will employ a new 1.5-litre petrol engine and go against the likes of Mitsubishi Xpander.
