Suzuki Reveals An All-New Ertiga Minivan At Indonesia Auto Show

Ever heard of the Ertiga? It’s basically a Swift minivan, and has been on the market (in certain markets) for about six years. Now Suzuki has revealed a new version and stylistically, at least, it’s further differentiated from the hatchback with which it shares its underpinnings.

Presented at the Indonesia Auto Show in Jakarta, the new Ertiga is longer than its predecessor. Stretched by 130 mm (over 5 inches), the minivan now measures a little longer than a Mercedes B-Class or BMW 2-Series Active Tourer. In contrast, the previous model was closer in size to an A-Class.

The increased length means more space inside for people and cargo, and the three-row people-hauler has room for seven inside. As little as we’ve seen of the cabin space thus far, the manufacturer says the interior is “decorated with delicate dashboards and woodgraining decorations.”

Produced in India and Indonesia
Over that enlarged chassis, Suzuki has fitted entirely new sheetmetal with sharper creases and more dynamic styling overall. Power comes from a 1.5-liter engine of undisclosed specifications. But given that the outgoing version incorporated smaller four-cylinder engines, we can expect the new one to adopt something similar.

Suzuki reports that this segment accounts for about 30 percent of new car sales in Indonesia alone, so the new Ertiga represents a vital model for the automaker and the markets in which it’s sold. The automaker will continue manufacturing it in both India and Indonesia both for local consumption and for export. Since its introduction in 2012, Suzuki has sold over 680,000 units in 70 countries around the world.

    Looks like a typical indonesian car.. and also looks like they have copied toyota a lot here. It looks very much like a mash up of the toyota innova and toyota calya

    • Ertiga predates Calya and new Innova.

      • David De Fortier

        Not this ertiga. The outgoing ertiga does not look like a toyota… atleast not blatantly like this one

        • Well to be frank, modern car design looks similar with each brand.

      Actually ertiga was developed more for india market. In india ertiga will be head 2 head with tata and innova

      • Innova was much larger MPV, this car is aimed towards medium MPV like Avanza.

  • Good luck with reheating old cars.

    • Brabusbus

      This car based on Suzuki’s new Heartect platform. Which underpins most of the latest model, including Baleno and Swift, making it larger and lighter.

    Better for dragging a family around than an SUV.

    For many Indonesian families, these kind of cars are their dream cars. Actually it is an ingenious solution to Indonesian market characteristics that value:
    – big passenger capacity (to haul all family members at once: mother, father, children, grandparents, maid… you name it!),
    – low running cost (tax, insurance, maintenance and fuel. Small engine with decent power for city & suburban area which plague by severe traffic jam is just perfect. Many people really don’t need 300hp car here.)
    – relatively affordable (around USD15K)

    Don’t compare Indonesia (whose per capita income is only USD 3,877) to developed countries like USA (USD 34,922/capita) or many European countries (USD 38k/capita, in average) . People from developed countries have luxury to be able to afford more expensive and sophisticated cars. They have wide arrays of options and offerings, which of course, goes in line with their income and purchasing power. For many Indonesian people, having a car (any car) is already very big milestone in life-time.

    What looks like a mere valueless for some people, can be highly precious for the others.
