Additionally, there are many festive offers that drive us to showrooms. The car has been remodeled and gets a plethora of new features to satisfy one’s need. We notice that a lot of features have been derived from the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz.
The new Ertiga facelift has kept the same dimensions and also has the same headlamps. The new thing on the front that we see is the chrome accents around the fog lamp housing which makes it look winsome. On the back, the Ertiga name has been sculpted onto the rear door.
