What’s New in The Maruti Ertiga for 2022?
The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga gets a new front grille with a ‘winged’ chrome trim embedded in it, new dual-tone alloy wheels, and a chrome garnish on the tailgate. Splendid Silver and Dignity Brown are two new colors to choose from as well. The Ertiga facelift features a new dual-tone seat fabric and a new Metallic Teak Wooden finish (faux wood) on the dashboard.
Details on The Maruti Ertiga’s Powertrain and Fuel Efficiency for 2022
The most significant change, however, is the Ertiga’s new 1.5-litre DualJet engine with start-stop technology. This engine has two injectors per cylinder, which gives it more control over fuel injection and thus more power and efficiency. It produces 103 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 136.8 Nm at 4400 rpm, down 2 horsepower and 1.2 Nm from the previous 1.5 engine.
The Vitara SUV sold in other countries is powered by the same engine, albeit as a full hybrid with 148hp of combined power. Maruti Suzuki, on the other hand, will not offer a full hybrid system in India, but it will include start-stop technology. Maruti Suzuki previously only offered DualJet technology in their 1.0-litre and 1.2-litre K-Series engines. This is the first time the carmaker has made it available on its larger 1.5-litre engine. The same engine is expected to be used in larger Maruti vehicles.

A 5-speed manual transmission comes standard. In addition, the outgoing model’s aging 4-speed torque-converter automatic has been replaced by a new 6-speed unit with paddleshifters. The Ertiga facelift is said to get 20.51 kpl with the manual transmission and 20.30 kpl with the automatic transmission.
In addition to the 1.5 DualJet engine, Maruti has added a CNG option to the new Ertiga’s lineup. When running on CNG, it produces 87hp and 121.5Nm, and when running on petrol, it produces 100hp and 136Nm. The Ertiga facelift CNG is only available with a 5-speed manual transmission and is rated at 26.11 km/kg.
Features of The Maruti Ertiga in 2022
The top-spec ZXI+ trim of the 2022 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga facelift comes with a 7-inch SmartPlay Pro infotainment touchscreen that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
