Maruti Suzuki Ertiga MPV gets expensive

Written by AnantaSaranNayak

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga has received a price hike. The MPV received a facelift update just 3 months ago and got a price tag of INR 8.35 lakh (ex-showroom). Now with the price hike in effect, Ertiga has become dearer by almost INR 6,000. Thus, the MPV currently retails at an ex-showroom price of INR 8.41 lakh. Maruti Suzuki has confirmed that this price hike is with immediate effect. Furthermore, all the variants of the Ertiga now get ESP and hill hold assistance as a standard feature. Earlier, this was only available with automatic and top-of-the-line variants. Thus, we assume with this added feature, Maruti Suzuki has decided to hike the price.
