2019 Suzuki Ertiga: Review, Specs and Price in the UAE

2.2KViews

Dubbed as a ‘Life Utility Vehicle’ the newly launched Suzuki Ertiga is an attempt by Suzuki to capture the 7-seater family vehicle segment. Suzuki promises a reliable and high quality car that will be easy on the pocket and will be in everybody’s reach.

With Ertiga, Suzuki aims to deliver a vehicle that can carry up to 7 passengers with ease and in comfort, and at the same time provides ample stowage for large amounts of luggage that is not possible to fit in any normal salon car or a hatchback. All of that at a lowest possible price.

The UAE launch of Suzuki Ertiga is backed by its huge success in most of Asia, where the car received a lot of praise and awards from major publications, such as: Autocar India, BBC Top Gear, CNBC Overdrive and many more.

Exterior

Suzuki is known for delivering unique concepts and doesn’t fall behind when it comes to the Ertiga. The 7-seater is designed with a unique shape and range of colours.

The chrome front grille and headlamps make a great first impression. The bonnet comes with sharper lines, that extend to the side profile to boasts a prominent waistline. The 15-inch alloy wheels and the updated rear L-shaped tail lamps compliment the whole look.

Interior

The Ertiga interior has always been functional but in this new shape that is being launched in the UAE, the interior undergoes a lot of upgrades. The air vents, artificial wood trim on the dashboard makes the interior looks very high end and up market. There is a lot of plastics used in the cabin but the overall built quality is really high for a vehicle this type.
