Officially unveiled at the 2015 Indonesia International Motor Show in August 2015, Ertiga Facelift India launch has been long awaited. Now, set for launch on 10th October, Maruti Ertiga facelift brochure has been leaked online, confirming interesting new details.
The scans which are leaked online, confirms that Ertiga facelift will get the SHVS technology with diesel engine as well as a 4 speed automatic transmission with the petrol engine.
With the SHVS technology, Maruti Ertiga facelift diesel variant, which is powered by a 1.3l engine, will be able to provide better acceleration, smoother drive experience, and on top of all, an improved mileage. Though it is yet to be revealed what will be the mileage figure of Ertiga facelift diesel with SHVS tech, it could be in the range of 23 kmpl, considering that Ertiga without SHVS tech delivers 20.77 kmpl.
SHVS technology was first seen on board the new Maruti Ciaz, which was launched earlier this month. The technology features brake energy regneration and micro hybrid tech, which switches off the engine automatically when you come to a stand still. The engine comes back to life once you lift the clutch pedal.
The other new change under the hood is the option of petrol automatic variant. Considering the increase in traffic congestion in major cities across India, it seems that this will bring new range of buyers to the brand. Once launched, Ertiga will also become the most affordable automatic MPV in India.
