In the Indonesian market, Suzuki Ertiga is known for its spacious cabin and fairly economical fuel consumption, which become its capital to compete with similar products. Suzuki Ertiga offers a variety of options. The price of Suzuki Ertiga 2020 starts from Rs 205 crore for the Suzuki Ertiga GA MT variant, and the price for the highest variant Suzuki Ertiga Sport AT starts from Rs 260 crore.
Suzuki Ertiga entered the compact MPV competition with its 7-seater configuration. At the same time, the third generation was launched in May 2018, and the second generation upgrade was launched on January 15, 2020. Launched as MPV Segment C, Ertiga is assembled in Indonesia through Cikarang’s Suzuki factory. Earlier, Ertiga had a diesel engine. But currently, Ertiga only provides K15B 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engines in Indonesia.
1. Driving Sense
The revised version of Ertiga still uses a K15B 1.5L engine with DOHC VVT technology with a power output of 103 hp and a maximum torque of 138 Nm. Even at low speeds, the torque on the K15B engine will be felt. The conventional 4-speed transmission feels smooth shifting and therefore provides smooth acceleration. In terms of driving stability, Ertiga’s handling is still very interesting. The more stable frame feels comfortable even when driving fast. At the same time, the Ertiga is also equipped with ABS and EBD brakes, with McPherson Strut suspension at the front and Torsion Beam at the rear.
Confero is an important competitor of Ertiga’s similar cars. Judging from the Ertiga size description, this Suzuki MPV is shorter than Confero. But the Ertiga has a larger wheelbase and cabin capacity. Another advantage of Ertiga over Confero is that the turning radius is smaller. Ertiga has a new 1.5L engine with higher performance with a power of 103 hp and a maximum torque of 138 Nm. This MPV emphasizes the comfort and spaciousness of the cabin, and is equipped with USB charging and dual blowers.
The spacious cabin is indeed the main attraction for Ertiga users. Despite its similar size, this Japanese LMPV has plenty of leg and head room, even for third-row passengers.
The second row of seats can be extended back to 3 positions by tilting. Given that the latest generation of Suzuki Ertiga is longer, the third-row backrest can also be tilted, which is very helpful for long-distance travel.
To make Suzuki Ertiga more practical, there is a storage bag on the door trim that can be used to carry a medium-sized motorcycle. If it is still missing, there are cup holders and pockets on the center console.
The storage capacity on the back is pretty good. The Ertiga suitcase can hold up to three large suitcases. If it is still missing, you can set the second row of seats to 60:40 and the third row of seats to 50:50, which can be laid flat on the floor.
