The MPV will come with refreshed design and styling, along with a bunch of new and updated features and tech. Although this is essentially a midcycle update, Maruti is calling it the next-gen Ertiga because now the MPV comes with the new-gen K-Series 1.5-litre Dual Jet, Dual VVT engine, and an all-new 6-speed automatic transmission.

We are confident that the Next-Gen Ertiga will further delight customers, offering them a more fuel-efficient, powerful, technologically advanced and stylish companion for long journeys together with their loved ones.”
The upcoming Maruti Suzuki Ertiga facelift will come with the next-gen K-series 1.5-litre Dual Jet, Dual VVT engine paired with the company Smart Hybrid technology. In addition to the new powertrain, Maruti Suzuki is introducing an advanced 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters as well, finally saying goodbye to the slow and ageing 4-speed unit. Of course, there will be a manual version as well and, most likely the existing 5-speed unit. Also, there will be a CNG version as well, which will now be available in the ZXI variant as well.
