Suzuki Ertiga MPV has seen remarkable response in Indian and Indonesian markets. Sales figures prove that the vehicle has carved a niche for itself in both the countries. Maruti Suzuki India manufactures Ertiga at their plant in Gurgaon, whereas in Indonesia, the Eritga is assembled at the Suzuki plant in Bekasi.
For 2013, the Maruti Ertiga gets minor upgrades. These include a new front grille which is now seen with three horizontal chrome stripes as against its earlier honeycomb mesh. Inside these are twin blowers for second and third row. These upgrades are seen in the top two variants – GL and GX. The base GA variant continues with single blower AC so as to maintain prices at competitive levels. Ertiga GX comes with dual airbags, ABS, side impact beam and engine immobilizer while GL model only receives side impact beam and engine immobilizer.
Prices of this upgraded Ertiga GL variant stands at 160.8 million Indonesian Rupiah (Rs 8.99 lakhs) while the GX variant is priced at 172.8 million Indonesian Rupiah (Rs 9.71 lakhs). Suzuki dealers are keen seeing an automatic variant of this Ertiga MPV though with not much success as is likely to be seen only in the next generation model.
