The Ertiga was first launched in India as a three-row vehicle back in 2012 and has managed to find scores of takers in the past decade. A regular in the list of top-10 selling cars in the country, well over seven lakh units of the Ertiga have been sold here with the option of company-fitted CNG giving an additional boost to the sales momentum. In the past, what has helped the case of this MPV is its rather affordable price point, spacious cabin and reliable drive traits. Maruti Suzuki appears to have continued to emphasize on these key traits while also ensuring enhanced features and a slightly smarter exterior design.

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga CNG

With Tata Motors entering the CNG segment for its passenger vehicles through Tiago and Tigor, it was only a matter of time before Maruti Suzuki attempted to strengthen its own game as far as the alternate fuel option is concerned. While Ertiga doesn't rival the Tiago - a hatchbatck, or the Tigor - a compact sedan, it is now available with the CNG kit on its VXi and ZXi variants as well. This could be a bid to ensure that customers option for CNG do not lose out on the features that the top-of-the-line variant has on offer.

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga variants

The latest Ertiga is available in as many as four trims and 11 broad variants. There are three automatic options available - on VXi, ZXi and ZXi+, while CNG is also available in two variants.
