The MPV will also see minor proportion changes. The new Maruti Ertiga 2018 will be longer, wider and taller than the outgoing model. The wheelbase, however, measures the same 2,740mm. The new-generation model will have more cargo space to offer – i.e. 153-litres. Reports suggest that the new Maruti Ertiga 2018 will be based on the company’s new lightweight HEARTECT platform, thus making it stiffer and safer than before.

At the engine front, the new Maruti Ertiga 2018 will get a new 1.5, 4-cylinder K15B petrol engine instead of 1.4L unit. The new gasoline motor, borrowed from the new Ciaz, pushes out a peak power of 104bhp and 138Nm of torque. The 89bhp, 13L diesel powertrain will continue to be on offer. The MPV’s new-generation model will come with two transmission options –a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic.
