In 2019, Maruti launched the Ertiga diesel with a 1.5 liter diesel engine mated to a 6-speed MT. Within a few months of launch, these were discontinued, as Maruti decided not to upgrade their diesel engines to BS6 standards.

This 1.5 liter DDiS unit was Suzuki’s first attempt at developing a 4-cylinder diesel engine and the company spent hundreds of crore on its development.

The engine produces a decent 94 bhp of output and 225 Nm of torque when paired with a 6-speed manual transmission.

Reportedly the Tour M version of the Ertiga is sold exclusively to taxi fleets and operators across the country. This suggests that Maruti Suzuki will probably bring back its diesel unit in an updated form only for the commercial vehicle segment, at least initially.

All New Ertiga Dieselwill provide an affordable option with much better fuel economy as offered by other manufacturers in this segment.
