So, Suzuki Philippines launched the 1.2-liter Swift today. But when will the Japanese carmaker introduce the Ertiga? Well, the company revealed at today's event that the Swift-based MPV's launch will happen next month--on July 15, to be exact.
As we reported in May, the Ertiga will be available in four variants with the following prices:
* Ertiga GA MT - P619,000;
* Ertiga GL MT - P712,000;
* Ertiga GL AT - P752,000; and
* Ertiga GLX AT - P812,000
Since the Ertiga is based on the Swift, it will use the same K14B 1.4-liter engine, giving it a power output of 95hp and a maximum torque of 130Nm. Despite being slightly longer than the Swift, it retains the compact hatchback's 5.2m turning radius.
Being an MPV, the most useful information you'll find about the Ertiga for now is this: It can seat seven people and can accommodate 113L of cargo with the third-row seats up.
According to Suzuki Philippines, the Ertiga will be available in Serene Blue, Granite Gray, Superior White, Firebrick Red, Silky Silver and Dusky Brown.
