Maruti Suzuki has launched the 2022 Ertiga MPV in India with prices starting from ₹ 8.35 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Aside from outright purchase Maruti has also revealed that the new Ertiga will be available on its subscription platform with a monthly fee starting from ₹ 18,600 and ₹ 22,400 for the petrol and CNG model respectively. As before the Ertiga is available in a choice of four variants to private buyers – Lxi, Vxi, Zxi and Zxi+ – with the automatic gearbox option available on all but the entry-level variant. Unlike the outgoing model which only got a Vxi CNG variant, the 2022 Ertiga gets the option of the factory CNG kit on both the Vxi and Zxi variants.
Maruti has also launched new Tour M petrol and CNG variants targeted at fleet operators priced at ₹ 9.46 lakh and ₹ 10.41 lakh respectively.
Here are the variant-wise prices:
The highlight of the new Ertiga is the new engine and automatic gearbox. Maruti’s long-running four-speed torque converter makes way for a more modern 6-speed torque converter unit while the outgoing model’s 1.5-litre petrol has been replaced by a more efficient 1.5-litre DualJet petrol engine. The new DualJet unit develops 102 bhp and 137 Nm – 1 bhp and 1 Nm down on the outgoing model. The dual-fuel petrol CNG model develops a marginal lower 99 bhp and 136 Nm in petrol mode and 87 bhp and 121.5 Nm when running on CNG.
