Eight months before the BS-VI emission norms kick in from 1 April 2020, Maruti Suzuki has launched the BS-VI Ertiga (Petrol) in the market. As expected, the BS-VI model is available in only petrol, and its prices range from INR 7,54,689-10,05,689*.
Announcing the BS-VI Maruti Ertiga yesterday, Maruti Suzuki said: "BS-VI update will result in a price increase in all variants of Ertiga (Petrol)." Comparing the old and new prices, given in the table at the end of the story, it becomes clear that the company has hiked the price of the petrol engine model by INR 10,000.
The Ertiga joins the league of other BS-VI ready products from Maruti Suzuki including Alto, Baleno, Swift, and the Wagon R. The Ertiga is the most popular offering in its segment. This month, the cumulative sales of second-gen Ertiga, which was launched in November 2018, crossed 61,000 units. On average, Maruti Suzuki is selling over 8,000 units every month. Also, just days before announcing this milestone, the company launched the Ertiga CNG variant priced at INR 8.88 lakh*. The Ertiga regularly remains in the list of top 5 best selling UVs in India, and last month it ranked at fourth place with a total of 7,567 units sold.
On 21 August, Maruti Suzuki will launch an Ertiga-based 6-seater MPV named XL6. This model will have a more aggressive design and be plusher in terms of equipment. It will be sold through the NEXA dealerships.
The Maruti Ertiga diesel, available in 1.3L and 1.5L engine models, won't get the BS-VI upgrade.
