Apart from India, Ertiga is also in high demand in Indonesia, Philippines, South Africa and Thailand. Maruti launched the 2022 Ertinga model in April this year. At the same time, Suzuki has now unveiled the updated model of the Ertiga at the Philippine International Motor Show (PMIS). This model is made in India and is a Made in India product. The company exports manufactured cars in India to foreign markets. Compared to the Indian model, the 2023 Ertiga model launched in the Philippines offers better features like a 360-degree camera and a larger touchscreen.
New Ertiga: Big changes
The new Maruti Ertiga launched in the Philippines gets a 9-inch touchscreen, while the Ertiga available in India only gets a 7-inch touchscreen. But the touchscreen infotainment system doesn’t differ much except for the size. The new Ertiga also gets a 360 degree surround camera. The Ertiga is a great MPV for the right price while the XL6 is a premium car that comes with captain seats.
New Ertiga: Safety Features
The Artiga international model comes with safety features like dual airbags, reverse parking sensors, ABS with EBD and pedestrian injury mitigation system. Ultra-high tensile steel has been used to manufacture the latest MPV. It also features stolen vehicle notification and tracking, tow away alert and tracking, geo-fence, time fence, driver behavior, over-speeding alert and remote function.
The Indian Ertiga engine is more powerful
The model of Ertiga launched in the Philippines is better than the Indian model Ertiga in terms of features. However, the international model uses the K15B mild-hybrid engine. The Indian model is also powered by the more advanced K15C Smart Hybrid engine. The K15C engine delivers a mileage of 20.51kmpl with 5 speed manual transmission and 20.30kmpl with 6 speed automatic transmission.
