Hot on the heels of the first ever spy pictures of the next generation Maruti Ertiga comes another set of images. Shared by Team-BHP, the 2018 Maruti Ertiga spy pictures shed light on some of the design details of the upcoming Maruti MPV.
The next-gen Ertiga features a significantly longer rear overhang as evident from the new pics. This will translate to increase third-row space. These spy pictures also reveal details of the nose section, which appears to feature longer, narrower headlamps and round fog lamps. A set of new multi-spoke alloy wheel design revealed in previous spy shots is can be seen here too.
Subsequent sightings of test mules will reveal more details regarding the next generation Maruti Ertiga. The dashboard layout, much like the current car, is likely to be similar to the upcoming 2018 Maruti Swift and the new Dzire. It will also share the HEARTECT platform with the two, which is expected to result in significant weight savings.
With the current Fiat-sourced 1.3 L DDiS 200 diesel set to be phased out by 2020, the new Ertiga could feature Suzuki's new 1.5 L diesel developed in-house. The 1.4 L K14B petrol might be carried over unchanged. Petrol and diesel automatic variants with AMTs might be planned as well.
According to a report from September, the 2018 Suzuki Ertiga will arrive in Indonesia in the first half of the next calendar year. In India, the 2018 Maruti Ertiga is likely to land in showrooms in India by the middle of 2018.
