Suzuki Ertiga 2019 Review

Suzuki Ertiga 2019 Review

The Suzuki Ertiga 2019 is this model’s second generation and in November 2018 made its India debut. It will come in four trim levels, which include Z+, Z, L, and V along with the options of either diesel or petrol engines. The petrol engines are available with automatic or manual gearboxes but the diesel engine only offers a 5-speed manual transmission.

This model received comprehensive mechanical and aesthetic upgrades and has been built on a safer and lighter new-generation HEARTECT platform, which will help to enhance its fuel and performance efficiency. This will also make the Suzuki Ertiga 2019 safer, lighter, and stiffer than the previous generations. It also offers longer dimensions and premium styling but will have the same boxy profile.
