Maruti Suzuki which is India's biggest car manufacturer has planned to launch its first compact multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) Ertiga by next year. The Ertiga will be unveiled globally at the Auto expo to be held in January 2012. Not only this it will come up with its first sports utility vehicle (SUV) at the expo.

Despite selling the largest number of cars, Maruti Suzuki does not have an offering in the utility vehicle segment that accounts for around 15 per cent sales in the automobile industry. The MPV segment accounts for 9 per cent of the automobile market.

Ertiga will sport a new K14 VVT engine. It will also come with a 1.3 Litre Diesel DDiS Diesel Super Turbo engine.

“As the market gets more competitive, we have to gear up for the new dynamics. We are thus showing the best we can offer. The new models like the SUV, MPV and MUV will prove to the world that we are future-ready. We need to get first-hand feedback for this,” Mayank Pareek, Managing Executive Officer (marketing and sales) at Maruti Suzuki said.
