Fleet and Cab operators are on the lookout for a vehicle that is easy to buy and maintain and offer adequate features. The Eritga just ticks about all the boxes. In fact, many operators have Ertiga in their fleet already. Looking to capitalize on this, Maruti Suzuki has added a new variant to their Ertiga line up – The Ertiga Tour M.
Just like the Dzire Tour S, the Ertiga Tour M is targetted at cab and Fleet operators. The new variant is priced at INR 7.99 Lakhs. Unlike the Dzire Tour S, that is based on the base variant, the Ertiga Tour M is based on the middle order Vxi variant.
What is on offer?
Features on offer include a power steering, electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs, front and rear power windows, rear AC vents and remote central locking. When it comes to safety, it has a dual front airbag, ABS, seatbelt warning, 80 Km/h speed limiter. On the outside, it has halogen projector headlamps, chrome grille, body colored door handles, and mirror housings and full wheel covers.
Other features include a TFT color MID, 12V power outlets for the first and second rows and an audio system with AUX, USB and Bluetooth connectivity. It also gets steering mounted controls for music and phone.
This variant of the Ertiga is available only with one engine option -The 1.5 Liter K15B petrol motor. It delivers 108 PS and 138 Nm torque with the mild hybrid setup. This is because it is most preferred among fleet operators due to its compatibility with CNG. Maruti might just offer the car with factory fitted CNG kits.
The new Ertiga is available from a starting price of INR 7.44 Lakhs. The top of the line diesel variant is priced at INR 10.90 Lakhs. It is available in 10 variant and 5 colors.
