    2022 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga: variant break-up, engine details

    Just like the outgoing model, the new Ertiga continues to be offered in four trims – LXi, VXi, ZXi and ZXi+. Powered by a sole 1.5-litre engine, the Ertiga can run on both, petrol and CNG. The CNG kit is being offered on the mid-spec VXi and ZXi trims. In the previous iteration of the Ertiga, the CNG kit was only offered on the second-from-base VXi.

    All four trims come with a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard. Meanwhile, the new 6-speed automatic gearbox is being offered on all but the base LXi. As for the engine itself, the new 1.5-litre K15C DualJet four-cylinder engine produces 103hp and 136.8Nm when run on petrol and 87hp and 121.5Nm on CNG. It continues to feature Maruti’s smart hybrid technology, and the 6-speed automatic gearbox even features paddle shifters.

    Maruti claims a fuel efficiency of 20.51kpl with the manual gearbox and 20.30kpl with the new automatic gearbox. Meanwhile, the CNG variants are claimed to return 26.11km/kg.
