The video surfaced also reveals the sound of the engine that looks like a 1.5-liter diesel engine. It is being speculated that the company can offer the Ertiga MPV with the first 1.5-liter diesel engine.
Maruti Ertiga Diesel: Maruti Suzuki discontinued all diesel engine models in the Indian market after the BS6 emission norms came into force earlier this year. Currently, if you buy any Maruti vehicle, then only petrol model is available with you. At the same time, Maruti Suzuki has also announced that it will not offer any diesel car in the market. But recently a picture of Maruti’s MPV Ertiga is being seen on social media.
Similar to the Ertiga Tour M model: The report is said to be the Ertiga’s diesel model, which the company can launch exclusively for commercial car buyers and owners of the taxi fleet. Let me tell you, this car has been sported during testing by 91 wheels on the highway. It looks completely similar to the regular petrol model of the Ertiga Tour M.
1.5 liter diesel engine may be used: The video in front of the engine also shows the sound of the engine, which looks like a 1.5-liter diesel engine. It is being speculated that the company can offer the Ertiga MPV with the first 1.5-liter diesel engine. This engine generates a maximum power of 94bhp and peak torque of 225nm. Let’s say that, this engine was equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission.
The company is rethinking the strong strategy of BS6 diesel engine demand in view of the ongoing movement in the market. Maruti Suzuki had earlier said that if the demand for diesel engines continues after the introduction of new emission norms, the company would consider restarting the 1.5-liter diesel engine in the BS6 avatar.
