The facelifted Maruti Ertiga has been spotted in the wild testing ahead of its 2022 introduction. The MPV is slated to undergo minor visual changes, as well as new amenities, on the exterior and interior.
The Ertiga will get a new mesh-type grille, according to spy pictures. Other improvements aren’t visible right now, but we’ll learn more as the debut date approaches. The cabin has yet to be seen, but it is expected to be updated with new features and upholstery. A larger touchscreen infotainment system, connected car technology (telematics), wireless Android Auto and Apple Carplay, a revised instrument cluster, dedicated third-row AC vents, and cruise control are all expected on the facelifted Ertiga. Its safety features will also be improved, with extra airbags in the top models planned.
Currently, the MPV features projector headlamps, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment, Android Auto and Apple Carplay, engine push start/stop button, automatic AC, dual front airbags, hill hold control, ESP (electronic stability programme), and a rear parking camera.
No mechanical changes are expected onboard as the facelift should continue with its 104PS 1.5-litre petrol engine. While its existing 5-speed manual transmission will continue, the 4-speed torque converter might be replaced for a newer unit. It will also continue to feature mild-hybrid technology and an optional CNG.
Over its current price range of Rs 7.96 lakh to Rs 10.69 lakh, the facelifted Ertiga is projected to command a premium (ex-showroom Delhi). In 2022, Maruti will introduce eight new models, including facelifted versions of the Brezza, Baleno, XL6, and even the Ertiga.
