Auto Expo 2020: Maruti Suzuki Launches New BS6 Compliant Ertiga S-CNG

Maruti Suzuki has launched India’s first BS6 emission norms compliant, CNG powered version of Ertiga MPV at Auto Expo 2020 motor show. According to media reports, the new Ertiga is priced at Rs 8.95 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). As per reports, the new Ertiga MPV is powered by a 1.5-litre 4 cylinder naturally aspirated K-Series engine that can also run on petrol. The CNG powered Ertiga generates less power as it gives an output of 91 Bhp-122Nm, however, while running on petrol the same car will give an output of 104 Bhp-138 Nm.

The launch of the car is at the right time as the government has announced that the last fate for BS6 compliance is April 1, 2020. Reports suggest that Maruti Suzuki is planning to launch more BS6 compliant CNG-Petrol dual-fuel cars. Maruti Suzuki also unveiled the new Ignis facelift model that will likely be launched by March 2020. According to media reports, the new Ignis comes with a new front bumper, grille and fog lamp housing.
