Launched back in 2008, Maruti Suzuki Ertiga has emerged as India’s best-selling urban MPV. It is to be noted that the automaker has so far sold over 5 lakh units. It is worth mentioning here that brand Ertiga has found widespread acceptance among its customers.
Shashank Srivastava, Executive Director (Marketing & Sales), Maruti Suzuki India Limited said, "Ertiga created a niche for itself as a 3-row comfortable MPV to become a runaway success. Its success helped us to strengthen market presence in the MPV segment. Ertiga is a market leader with 36 per cent market share amongst MPVs and its leadership continues with support from customers."
In November 2018, the automaker introduced next-generation Ertiga in 2018 with aspirational new design, premium interiors, and powerful new engine options. Built on Suzuki's 5th Generation Heartect platform, the MPV is equipped with an array of safety features such as dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, reverse parking sensors etc as standard fitment across all variants.
Currently, the Ertiga is the only MPV that is available with three fuel options - petrol, diesel, and a factory-fitted CNG model as well. It has been recognised for its excellent road performance and best-in-class fuel-efficiency. Nearly 28 per cent of Ertiga customers are repeat buyers.
Recently, Maruti Suzuki India announced that its popular multi-purpose vehicle Ertiga petrol version has become BS-VI emission norm compliant and will be available at a starting price of Rs 7,54,689 (ex-showroom Delhi).
