Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Exterior
Keeping the overall profiling familiar to the earlier, Ertiga seems to be catching the attention with the new fog lamps and thick chrome grills similar to the design that Maruti has been following whether it be Ciaz or Ignis. Escaping the boxy styling of Ignis and also not touching the aggressive car styling, Ertiga is lying a bit towards utility looks with a bit of chrome trying to escape the totally “Ye sab moh maya hai” designing. Catchy body cladding could have garnished the car with a husky accent. Precisely, considering the specs, Ertiga showcases 4,265mm length, 1,695mm width, 1,685mm of height, 2,740mm wheelbase and a turning radius of 5.2m.

A profile resembling Honda Jazz looks lengthier while providing a good legroom, and a lot of boot space to fit ample of luggage when the last row in flipped. But on a long journey with seven people on board with their luggage, will surely create the need for a carrier.
