Details of an Ambulance based on the Indonesia-spec 2018 Suzuki Ertiga have surfaced online. While the prices aren't known at the moment, the Ertiga-based ambulance is a dealer-level modification.
The second-gen Suzuki Ertiga has been on sale in a price bracket of Rp 196 - Rp 241,5 Million (INR 9,52,560 - 11.73.690). It is available in GA, GL, GX and GX ESP grades. The ambulance livery can be applied on any variant of the MPV. It brings in a set of special decals and a set of roof-mounted warning lights. The interior has been completely transformed to accommodate a medicine cabinet, a stretcher, an oxygen cylinder, and a host of medical paraphilia.
That said, the front row and the dashboard of the cabin remains mostly unaltered, with the only addition being that of the control panel for the warning lights, siren, and the public announcement system. The Indonesia-spec Suzuki Ertiga draws its juice from a 1.5-litre VVT naturally-aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine that delivers a maximum power of 104.7 PS at 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 138 Nm at 4,400 rpm. The motor comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed torque-converter automatic transmission.
The second generation Suzuki Ertiga is underpinned by the lightweight yet robust Heartect platform. It measures 4,395 mm in length, 1,735 mm in width and 1,690 mm in height. With all the three rows of seats in place, the MPV offers a boot space of 153-litre. Folding down the middle and the third row of seats can boost the vehicle's luggage carrying capacity to 803-litre.
In India, the second-gen Maruti Suzuki Ertiga went on sale in November 2018. It's currently available in a price bracket of INR 7.44-10.90 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi). Engine options include 1.5-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel motors. Also, a 1.5-litre diesel engine option is slated to be introduced imminently.
