driving cars in a traffic jam 300x198 Maruti To Launch Ertiga On April 12

By Sunil Kumar

Maruti is set to launch its multi-purpose vehicle, the Ertiga tomorrow. Based on the Swift platform, it will compete against the Toyota Innova and the Mahindra Xylo.

According to Suzuki, Ertigo has been made keeping in mind Indian sensibilities. Earlier models such as the 800, Alto, Swift, Wagon R and Ritz were global variants suited to Indian conditions.

Maruti plans to introduce a new 1.4-litre K-series petrol engine (94PS and 130Nm), along with the 1.3-litre diesel mulitjet (90Ps and 200Nm). The unveiling of the cars will be done in Delhi. Since its introduction in the Indian market more than two decades back, Suzuki has consistently been the leader in the cars segment. Maruti’s marketing pundits have christened Ertiga as a “(LUV)Life Utility Vehicle”.
