MSIL is readying the next generation Ertiga (codename YHB) for 2018. A recent media report indicates that the 2018 Maruti Ertiga will spawn a crossover variant as well. IAB's automotive illustrator has created a rendering showing what the Maruti Ertiga X (Maruti Ertiga cross) may look like.

2018 Maruti Ertiga X (Maruti Ertiga Cross) rendering
The Maruti Ertiga X (Maruti Ertiga cross) is likely body cladding, roof rails, chunkier tyres, and silver garnish towards the lower part of the bumpers.

The rendering is based on the render of the next-gen Ertiga we shared last week. To give it a crossover look, the Ertiga gains protective cladding on the bumpers and around the wheel arches. There's also some silver finish underbody protection visible towards the bottom of the front bumper. The Ertiga X wears fatter rubber wrapped around 5-spoke alloy wheels and gets roof rails as well. The grille is styled similar to the Suzuki Vitara.

Spy pictures of the upcoming MPV have already started doing the rounds online. Images reveal some design details including a longer rear overhang as compared to the current model, narrower headlamps, and new multi-spoke alloy wheels.

The crossover variant could be called Maruti Ertiga X, similar to the Celerio X nomenclature used for the upcoming cross variant of the Maruti Celerio. Reports indicate that MSIL may consider moving the sales of the Ertiga to Nexa dealerships once the new-generation model arrives.
