Highlights

  • The new Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is likely to get the new 1.5 diesel in 2019
  • The 1.5-litre diesel engine could replace the existing 1.3-litre engine
  • The new Ertiga 1.5 diesel will come with a 6-speed manual gearbox

Images of an on-test new-gen Maruti Suzuki Ertiga have surfaced online, and this could very well be the upcoming 1.5-litre diesel model. While there is no badging on the MPV that could assert our belief, this particular 2018 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga does come with a 6-speed manual gearbox, which is what we are expecting the new diesel engine to be paired with. Maruti Suzuki has been working on the new 1.5-litre oil burner for a while now, and it’s expected to replace the existing Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre DDIS motor in the Ertiga and the Ciaz.
