  • Maruti Suzuki will be manufacturing BSVI-compliant diesel vehicles
  • Maruti Suzuki has not given up on the diesel engines altogether as previously announced
  • BSVI-compliant Maruti Ertiga Diesel spotted testing for the first time 

Maruti Suzuki had announced that it will not be manufacturing any diesel engine vehicles after the commencement of BSVI emission norms. However, spy shots suggest that they have not given up on the diesel engine option yet. After the spying of BSVI Maruti S-Cross diesel a few days back, photos have revealed the testing of the BS-VI compliant Maruti Ertiga diesel.

The spy shots of the partially camouflaged Maruti Ertiga clearly shows the DDiS badging on the vehicle. It clearly indicates that it is a diesel vehicle. The document stuck on the rear glass also suggests that the testing vehicle has a BSVI-compliant unit.

The engine could be a Fiat-developed 1.6L diesel motor that was also tested on the Maruti S-Cross diesel variant. Maruti Suzuki calls this 1.6L diesel unit as DDiS 320. In its BSIV version, the diesel engine delivered a maximum power of 120ps and a peak torque of 320Nm.

The current Maruti Ertiga offers the following engine options.

  • 1.5L BSVI-compliant petrol engine producing 105ps power and 138Nm torque
  • 1.5L BSIV diesel engine delivering 94ps power and 225Nm torque.
  • A CNG version is also available today.

As far as petrol-powered vehicles are concerned, Maruti Suzuki has updated to meet BSVI emission requirements. All its cars like the XL6, Ertiga, Baleno, and the Swift twins, as well as the S-Presso, are BSVI-compliant. The BSVI-compliant Maruti Ertiga diesel offering will get a launch sometime next year.
