    2022 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga: new details revealed

    Maruti has confirmed that the new Ertiga will come equipped with a new K-series 1.5-litre Dual VVT engine, corroborating our previous report. It also said that the MPV will ditch the outdated 4-speed automatic gearbox it currently comes with, in favour of a new 6-speed automatic gearbox that will feature paddle-shifters. The new Ertiga will also be offered with a S-CNG version for the better-kitted ZXi trim.

    In terms of equipment, the new MPV is also going to see an improvement over the current model. Maruti has confirmed that it will get a number of new features such as a 7-inch SmartPlay Pro touchscreen infotainment system with the ‘Suzuki Connect’ connected car tech.

    On the design front, not a lot is expected to change with the new Ertiga. The carmaker has shared the first teaser image for the MPV and the model has already been spied testing on our roads, and going by the images, the main change will be the new grille design that is similar to the one seen on the new Baleno.
