It has been 2 years since the last update of the Suzuki Ertiga and 4 years since it was first introduced to the Philippine market. And now, spy shots of the allegedly all-new Suzuki Ertiga 2018 have been unveiled by a motoring website in India.
The new Ertiga has received several revisions at the rear
Take a peek at the leaked photos, although the majority of the next-generation MPV is covered in camouflage, it is still noticeable that the Korean carmaker has given the new vehicle a number of refreshment at the rear. Particularly, the next Ertiga appears to be offered with revised LED tail lamps and a cut in the D-pillar, giving a hint of the same floating roof design found in the new Suzuki Swift.
It is expected that the upcoming Ertiga will be a 9-seater MPV
Is the Suzuki Ertiga an underrated MPV?
Speaking of the specifications, the next-gen Suzuki Ertiga 2018 is likely available with the same engines as the outgoing model. In detail, under the bonnet of the existing Suzuki Ertiga 2017 is either:
- A 92 PS/130 Nm 1.4 L naturally-aspirated engine, connected to either a 4-speed automatic or a 5-speed manual transmission;
- Or a mild hybrid 89 hp/200 Nm 1.3 litre turbodiesel mill, mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.
Renderings of next-generation Suzuki Ertiga
According to latest car news, the upcoming Ertiga is scheduled to debut at the Indian Auto Expo next month. If this allegedly all-new 9-seater MPV to arrive in our shores, it will undoubtedly become a fierce rival to other vehicles in this segment, including Toyota Innova, Honda Mobilio and the to-go-on-sales-soon Mitsubishi Expander.
