The MPV can be equipped with a sequential CNG kit as an accessory; factory-fitted CNG variants still some time away.
Maruti Suzuki introduced the new-gen Ertiga to the Indian market on November 21, 2018. The MPV got a new 105hp, 1.5-litre petrol engine from the Ciaz sedan along with Maruti’s trusty 90hp, 1.3-litre diesel mill. Both engines are mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox with a 4-speed torque converter automatic available with the petrol motor.
The new MPV’s accessories list has revealed that petrol variants can be equipped with a dealer-level sequential CNG kit. The kit has a capacity of 14kg, same as the last-gen CNG Ertiga, and is offered with a one-year warranty from the dealer as well. The CNG kit is priced at Rs 65,000, including charges for RTO and insurance.
The new Ertiga will be equipped with a factory-fitted CNG kit, but that model is still some months away from launch. In the meantime, customers can avail the benefits of the low-cost fuel by installing the dealer-level CNG kit.
Prices for the new Ertiga range from Rs 7.44 lakh to Rs 9.95 lakh for the petrol variants and Rs 8.84 lakh to Rs 10.90 lakh for the diesel-powered versions. The MPV is available in 10 variants and is being retailed from the Maruti Suzuki Arena showrooms. The Ertiga competes against the Mahindra Marazzo and the Honda BR-V in the MPV market.
