The first generation Ertiga was also rebadged in Indonesia as the Mazda VX-1, which is done by a non-manufacturer/assembler, from May 2013 until March 2017. Since November 2016, the Ertiga is also assembled and sold in Malaysia as the Proton Ertiga.

The second generation Ertiga was released in Indonesia in May 2018 without the Mazda-badged version.

OverviewEdit

As it is based on the Swift, the Ertiga is a monocoque MPV; the first in India. It is also considered to be a cross between a saloon/hatchback and a MPV.

The Ertiga is said to be the production version of the R-III (R3) concept showcased by MSIL at the 2010 Indian Automobile Exposition. Moreover, the name Ertiga is said be an adaptation of R-Tiga where "Tiga" means "three" in Indonesian. The "R" stands for "rows". Therefore, "Ertiga" name is derived from "R3" which in turn means "(Swift with) Three Rows".

MarketsEdit

IndiaEdit

According to Maruti Suzuki, the Indian Ertiga was designed specifically for Indian consumers, unlike the other Maruti models which were designed for the global market.[3][4] Maruti has marketed it as a "Life Utility Vehicle".[5] 11,000 of these vehicles were ordered in India within five days.[6][7]

In India, the Ertiga is available in both the alternatives of diesel and petrol variants. Though both of these engines were also seen doing duties earlier in various models, they are tweaked and retuned specifically for the car to provide fitting performance figures for its customers. The diesel variant is available in LDi, VDi and ZDi trims, while the gasoline variant is available in LXi, VXi and ZXi trims.

In June 2013, Maruti Suzuki added its Ertiga models[8] with compressed natural gas (CNG). The Ertiga LXi and VXi have original factory converter kit and are provided with i-GPI (intelligent Gas Port Injection) which Maruti Suzuki claimed will achieve 22.8 km/L (64 mpg‑imp; 54 mpg‑US) premium-equivalent.[9]

IndonesiaEdit

The Indonesian market Ertiga is available in GA, GL and GX trims. Earlier models are only available with 5-speed manual transmission. On 29 January 2013, the GL and GX trims received chrome front grille and double blower air conditioner. The 4-speed automatic transmission is available for GL and GX trims from 17 May 2013.

At the 20th Indonesia International Motor Show in September 2012, three new concepts in the Ertiga's form are introduced, the Sporty, Luxury and Crossover version, which are actually Ertigas heavily modified into concept cars. The normal version, in this case the GX variant, also appeared. The Elegant version of the GX trim is available from August 2013. The Sporty was launched on 19 February 2014, which is based on the GL trim with a different front fascia and sporty body kit.

After the trouble between worker unions at the Maruti Suzuki Plant in India, plans are being made to transfer the building plant to Indonesia, as most of the orders are from the country.

The Ertiga sold 109,461 units in two years, with selling record over Toyota Avanza in one year.[10] The Ertiga is also offered in diesel variant, which is imported from India and only comes in manual transmission option.[11][12]

PhilippinesEdit

In the Philippines, the Ertiga is offered in four variants: GA M/T, GL M/T, GL A/T and GLX A/T.[13]

South AfricaEdit

The Ertiga is the brand’s first MPV-type vehicle in South Africa. However the company claims the Ertiga as a Life Utility Vehicle and also claims its aimed at being practical, while retaining the fun-to-drive characteristics on the popular Swift.

The Ertiga is the second made-in-India product in Suzuki South Africa’s portfolio, the first one being the older Alto (A-Star). The South Africa-spec Ertiga is available only with a 1.4-liter petrol engine. The transmissions options are 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic unit.[citation needed]

FaceliftEdit

On 20 August 2015, the facelifted Ertiga was launched at the 23rd Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show. Changes consist of a wider grille, redesigned bumpers for all trims and a new trunk garnish exclusive to the GL and GX trims. The facelifted Ertiga was launched in India on 16 October 2015. Along with the diesel versions of the facelifted Ertiga comes with hybrid technology by Suzuki called as SHVS or Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki.[14]

Ertiga DrezaEdit

On 8 January 2016, Suzuki launched the luxury variant of the Ertiga, called Dreza. It gets a different front fascia from regular variants, different wheel design, and specific colour option. The interior gets a different seat upholstery, wooden panel on the dashboard, and an 8-inch touchscreen audio system.[15][16]

Proton ErtigaEdit

The Proton Ertiga is a rebadged Ertiga for the Malaysian market by Proton. It was launched on 24 November 2016, at the press conference at the Setia City Convention Centre, Setia Alam, Selangor.[17] It is Proton's fourth model to be launched in a six-month span.[18] It is Malaysia's first mini MPV that qualifies for Malaysia's EEV emissions standard. It can sit up to seven people, but because the middle row middle seat only features a lap belt, it is classified as a six-seater with a 2-2-2 configuration. It uses the same 1.4-liter petrol engine as the Suzuki Ertiga.

The Ertiga was updated in August 2018. It is now known as the Ertiga Xtra. The Executive Plus AT variant has been replaced with Premium AT. Changes included a darker upholstery for the seats and a 7.0-inch touchscreen head unit.[19][20]

The Proton Ertiga was never officially discontinued, but it is rumoured to be because the production of this generation of Ertiga was discontinued, making CKD exports to Proton for assembly not feasible and how the 2019 Exora has a starting price within the Ertiga price range.
