New Maruti Ertiga Price Expectations
Maruti will be betting big on the new Ertiga seven-seater MPV and the six-seater XL6 to renew its dominance in the three-row passenger vehicle segment. Despite Toyota Innova Crysta's popularity in the segment, Maruti Ertiga and XL6 have been among the best-sellers from the carmaker. However, with the launch of new three-row cars like Hyundai Alcazar and Kia Carens, the rivalry has intensified in this segment.
Maruti Ertiga will renew rivalry with the existing models, especially Carens which has a low base price, when launched. While the current models of Ertiga cost between ₹9.29 lakh and ₹12.68 lakh (ex-showroom), expect the new generation Ertiga to cost between ₹9.50 lakh and ₹13 lakh.
