With its three seating rows, the Ertiga can accommodate up to seven occupants, while the LUV’s front-engined, front-wheel drive layout allows a surprisingly generous interior, despite the vehicle’s compact footprint and wieldy character.
Based on the same platform as the highly regarded Swift compact hatchback, the Ertiga combines a comparatively long wheelbase, and wide front and rear tracks, with short overhangs and a wind-cheating silhouette to create a compact LUV with car-like proportions. The result is a vehicle that looks sleek and feels agile.
The three seating rows can be varied and configured to offer the optimum combination of accommodation and cargo space for different needs: from maximum seating space for seven, to a conventional split of two seating rows and a generous luggage compartment, or even both second and third seating rows folded down to create a cavernous cargo area.
The Ertiga also offers ample cup holders and storage binnacles, including a glove compartment, a dashboard rack, door pockets, seat back pockets and bottle holders. The exact combination of storage options varies between GA, GL and GLX models.
All five Suzuki Ertiga models are powered by the same 1.4-litre engine which produces a maximum output of 70 kW at 6 000 r/min, coupled to a torque peak of 130 Nm at 4 000 r/min. The variable valve timing allows the engine to prioritise torque at lower engine speeds, and power at higher engine speeds, thus ensuring brisk responses and sustained cruising speeds under all driving conditions.
The value-for-money character of this newcomer to the Suzuki family is underscored by class-leading fuel consumption of only 6,6 litres/100 km in the combined cycle.
Inside, the list of standard equipment includes a tilt-adjustable steering wheel, electric power steering, a digital trip computer offering an odometer, trip meter, a digital clock, instantaneous fuel consumption display, and a range indicator. Air-conditioning is standard, too.
