India’s leading passenger car manufacturer, Maruti Suzuki

delivers 13pc more power and 6pc improved torque output. The next gen Ertiga

have invested Rs 900 crore towards development of the next gen Ertiga.
The Ertiga was first launched in April 2012 and has since
sold 4,20,000 units. The multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) was launched in the
Capital in the presence of Kenichi Ayukawa, Managing Director, Maruti Suzuki Ltd.
The new Ertiga now has a chrome studded front grille,
aerodynamic floating roof and projector headlamps while as part of its new
interiors it has sculpted dual tone dashboard with wooden finish and leather
wrapped steering. The interiors have increased in dimensions and are now 40mm
