    Massive discounts on previous-gen Ertiga unsold stocks

    The 2015 facelift of the first-gen Maruti Suzuki Ertiga.

    Maruti Suzuki launched the all-new Ertiga in India late last year. Based on a new platform, the second-gen Ertiga is bigger, lighter and better equipped than its predecessor, and offered with the brand’s new 1.5-litre mild-hybrid petrol engine that debuted in the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz facelift.

    However, with the new model now in showrooms across the country, the brand is looking to clear any remaining stocks of the previous-gen model. Maruti Suzuki Arena dealers are currently offering discounts as high as Rs 1.08 lakh on unsold stocks of first-gen diesel Ertiga, depending on inventory.  The petrol model ­– powered by the old 1.4-litre K14 petrol motor – is available with benefits of up to Rs 53,000. In comparison, the CNG version of the old Ertiga is available with a comparatively meager Rs 28,000 discount.

    The previous-gen Ertiga was launched back in 2012 as Maruti’s first crack at the MPV segment. It debuted the brand’s 92hp, 1.4-litre petrol motor that went on to serve under the hood of the Ciaz until the midsize sedan was given a refresh last year.

    Maruti Suzuki updated the Ertiga in 2015, adding in a new top trim level, the brand’s SmartPlay infotainment system and offering the diesel motor with its SHVS mild-hybrid technology.

    The company is currently working on launching a more premium six-seater iteration of the second-gen MPV powered by the brand’s new in-house developed 1.5-litre diesel engine. The same unit is expected to be offered in the Ciaz as well. Also in the pipeline is the launch of the Baleno facelift in the coming weeks, bookings for which have opened at Rs 11,000.
