Maruti Suzuki Ertiga MPV could get a GT edition in India, to be launched in Indonesia this month
Japanese automobile manufacturer Suzuki has recently released a teaser image of the Ertiga GT. While the name does sound enthusiastic, in real world conditions, the Suzuki Ertiga GT will be a cosmetic addition model only. The company has recently released a teaser image of the 2019 Ertiga GT and one can see a sportier body kit and comparatively more aggressive styling. When does it launch in India? Our guess is as good as yours. With the growing trend of customisation, the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga GT's sportier design might attract a sizeable audience.
Suzuki Indonesia has started a teaser campaign for the new Ertiga GT
While there is confirmation on its Indonesia launch, there has been no communication of any sort of Maruti Suzuki India if it plans to launch the Ertiga GT in India. As seen from the images, the 2019 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga GT gets a cosmetic body kit with a tweaked blackened radiator grille, front bumper with extensions, side skirts, black alloys and a roof-mounted spoiler. Additionally, it gets GT and Suzuki Sport badges on the rear.
In terms of equipment, the 2019 Suzuki Ertiga GT will come with all the features of the top-spec trim such as touchscreen infotainment, automatic climate control, steering mounted controls, cruise control etc. ABS with EBD along with front airbags are expected to be standard.
Powertrain for the Ertiga GT in Indonesia will be the 1.5l diesel engine that makes 103PS and generates 138Nm of torque mated to a five-speed manual transmission. A four-speed automated manual unit might also be offered. Maruti Suzuki is already working on introducing a new 1.5 litre diesel to replace Fiat's 1.3l unit. Additionally, the top-of-the-line variant with the new engine is being speculated to be retailed through Maruti's premium Nexa line of dealerships.
