The new Maruti Suzuki Ertiga gets an all new design language that makes it a much much better looking car as compared to the previous gen model. The new Ertiga now gets headlamps with projector lens along with a set of boomerang shaped LED tail lamps that look very Volvo inspired. The new Ertiga continues to get 15-inch alloy wheels on the top spec models while 15-inch steel wheels with or without wheelcaps will continue on the lower VXI and LXI trims respectively. The new car also gets a new greenhouse design, which seems inspired by the larger and more premium Toyota Innova Crysta and seems to work really well.
The new Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is a bigger car as compared to the previous generation. It is longer and wider, which means that there is more space in the interior for passengers and for luggage too. The new Ertiga packs more features with the likes of a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto being offered on the top spec models. The new Maruti Suzuki Ertiga will have roof mounted AC vents for the third row and also get wooden inserts on the dashboard and steering wheel for a more premium looking interior as compared to the first gen model. The MPV offers a boot capacity of 209 litres, which can be expanded to 809 litres with the second third row folded.
