Launched in 2012, the Ertiga created the MPV segment and also became a popular buy. Maruti's popular model is currently in line for a mid-cycle refresh and the updated Ertiga is expected to reach showrooms by mid-2015.The updated MPV is likely to continue with the same engines as available in the current version. However, they will be updated for better fuel economy.
The Ertiga facelift will get exterior styling tweaks, such as an all-new grille with chrome slats and updated front-bumper with chrome inserts. The alloy wheel design for top-spec trims and the wheel-cap design for the mid- and lower level trims will be all new. The interiors will be spruced up, and will now get new upholstery, automatic climate control for the Z-trims and a push-button start system. The infotainment system is also expected to see an upgrade along with power folding wing mirrors.
The Ertiga shares many parts with the Swift hatchback and the Dzire sedan. The Swift has received its mid-cycle facelift, and a similar list of changes is expected on the Updated Dzire and Ertiga as well.
