    Maruti Suzuki is likely to launch the mid-cycle facelift of its MPV Ertiga by mid-April, just before the launch of the new XL6. While no big cosmetic changes are expected on the Ertiga facelift, it could have major updates under the hood.

    • 2022 Ertiga to get a more fuel-efficient 1.5-litre petrol
    • Will also get a new 6-speed torque converter automatic 
    • To sit below the XL6 in Maruti Suzuki's line-up    

    Like before, the new Ertiga will be offered with seven seats, and will sit below the more premium XL6 in Maruti Suzuki’s line-up. 

    2022 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga: what will be new?

    The new Ertiga has already been spied testing on our roads, and going by the images, it seems the changes to the MPV would be limited to a new grille, which could be similar to the grille seen on the updated Baleno.  

    However, under the skin, the Ertiga will see major changes. As we reported earlier, the new Ertiga will come with a more fuel-efficient 1.5-litre petrol engine. Additionally, the outdated 4-speed automatic gearbox will be replaced by a new 6-speed unit

    Other upcoming Maruti launches in the horizon

    The new Ertiga and XL6 are part of Maruti Suzuki’s plan to launch six new models by mid-2022. These include the Baleno CNG, updated Vitara Brezza, and DualJet-equipped Ignis and S-Presso. Later in the year, Maruti will launch the all-new Creta-rivalling midsize SUV that is being developed in collaboration with Toyota.
