Maruti Suzuki has added another model of their passenger line up to their commercial offerings. The latest to enter the taxi business is the company’s star MPV – the all-new Ertiga. The 2019 Ertiga has been well received in the market. Families loved it and so do the fleet and business folks. The new variant launched goes with the nameplate – Ertiga Tour M. The MPV’s variant has been officially unveiled and will be available in the market by the end of this month (June). The Ertiga Tour M joins the Swift DZire Tour of the automaker’s tourist car portfolio.
The 2019 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Tour M will be available only in petrol. Recently the car maker has decided to suspend the production of Diesel engine cars and will only bring petrol models to the market from April 2020. This decision remains effective until further notice. So the petrol engine of the Tour M will be the 1462cc K15B motor mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. This engine is capable of producing 77 kW of max power at 6000 rpm and 138 Nm of max torque at 4400 rpm. The fuel efficiency claimed is 18.8 km per litre. It will skip the hybrid system. This gasoline engine may also get CNG as a fuel option in future. CNG will make the ride more economical.
Speaking of features, the Tour M will get Projector Headlamps (Halogen), 3D Tail Lamps with LED, Chrome Front Grille, Full Wheel Caps, Turn Signal Lamp Integrated in ORVM, Body Coloured Door Handles, and Body Coloured ORVM. On the inside will be Dual Tone Interiors, 2nd Row Seats 60:40 Split with Slide and Recline, 3rd Row Seats 50:50 Split with Recline, 2nd Row Armrest, Headrest Front Row Seats, Head Rest 2nd Row Seats, Head Rest 3rd Row Seats, Split Type Luggage Board, Driver Side Sunvisor with Ticket Holder, Chrome-Tipped Parking Brake Lever, and Gear Shift Knob with Chrome Finish.
The MPV will be available in three colour options – Pearl Midnight Black, Pearl Arctic White and Metallic Silky Silver.
