A camouflaged MPV from Maruti Suzuki has been spied testing outside the national capital. The testing location, registration number and the design of the vehicle are all indicators of where it has come from and most likely is the next generation Ertiga.

These early spy shots indicate that this car is longer than the Ertiga and could possibly see the MPV being extended in length to make it a better value proposition. Sharing its underpinnings with the Dzire and Swift with one being updated earlier this year and the other due to get the same in 2018, it only makes sense for the Ertiga to get a new generation. It is still too early to predict any kind of update but it is almost certain that the new car will get the 1.4-litre petrol and a new 1.5-litre diesel that Maruti is rumoured to be working on.

The Ertiga is a bit of an odd ball in the Indian market. At a time when SUVs are on a path to dominate everything else, Maruti is able to retail around 5000 of them every month. There should be no doubt that a large part of the Ertiga’s sales come from the fleet market, but still 5000 is a damn good number!

Expect more test mules to be spotted over the coming months and official information to trickle out once the next generation Swift has been launched next year.
