Recent spy shots had indicated that Maruti Suzuki may not be withdrawing from the diesel passenger vehicle market completely. Solidifying the new development, new spy shots have come up showing a BS-VI Maruti Ertiga test mule on a public road.

Maruti Ertiga Bs6 Diesel Spied
The BS-VI Maruti Ertiga diesel is expected to make its market debut in 2020.

The Maruti Ertiga seen here is being driven on a BS-VI compliant 1.5-litre petrol engine along with a BS-IV compliant 1.5-litre diesel engine. There is also a 1.5-litre petrol/CNG option which powers its fleet version. The spotted unit was seen carrying the DDiS badging on the front fender which clearly indicates it being a diesel car. At the same time, the back-glass document reads BS-VI compliant, which only hints that either it is the Fiat-developed 1.6-litre diesel engine which is rumoured for revival or the in-house developed 1.5-litre diesel engine.

Maruti Suzuki has already updated its petrol-powered line-up to BS-VI emission requirements. Models such as the Swift twins, XL6, Baleno, Ertiga, and the S-Presso, are all BS-VI compliant models now. If you remember, the company also launched the BS-VI Wagon R 1.0L very recently.
