From strollers and baby bags to schoolbags and sports equipment – moms know what it’s like to cart around a car full of goods, let alone busy little passengers. Are you in the market for a new “mom’s taxi”? Suzuki just unveiled its new Ertiga to fill the gap in its offering for mulitpurpose vehicles and there are five different models in the series.

10 Facts about the new Ertiga:

  1. All models come standard with ABS brakes, double airbags, safety belts for all passengers and additional safety features such as the strategic placement of steel bars.
  2. All models have stylish interiors.
  3. The range is doing exceptionally well in Indonesia and India where it’s sold more than 100 000 units in each country.
  4. The lower ground clearance affords better handling which is important when carrying passengers.
  5. Even with seven passengers on board, the Ertiga has very low fuel consumption – a bonus with a 45-litre tank.
  6. There’s more than enough room inside the vehicle which means passengers travel comfortably. The middle row of seats can also be moved forwards or backwards which affords passengers more leg room.
  7. Don’t look for frills on the Ertiga – not inside or outside. This is a straightforward vehicle which will get you and your passengers where you want to go safely.
  8. Passengers in the third row have access to air-conditioning settings.
  9. This clever design, with a longer back door which opens widely, makes entry and exit to the back row easy for passengers.
  10. GL and GLX models have a hidden 22-litre compartment underneath the boot’s floor.

The Ertiga range includes these five models:

  • Suzuki Ertiga GA – R159 900
  • Suzuki Ertiga GL – R179 900
  • Suzuki Ertiga GL auto – R194 900
  • Suzuki Ergita GLX – R192 900
  • Suzuki Ertiga GLX auto – R207 900

All five models offer a warrantee of three years or 100 000 km as well as a service plan of four years or 60 000 km and a year-long roadside assistance plan. The service interval is every 15 000 km.
