Reading Time: 2 minutes

For many of us our choice of the car we buy is motivated by value for money and practicality. Not everybody cares for speed and power, but we all want comfort and peace and peace of mind, and this is where Suzuki Ertiga pitches in.
The Ertiga, Suzuki’s first MPV vehicle in South Africa, is simply a pretty young thing! The seven-seater gives the user more than plenty of space; it is practical, fun-to-drive and very energetic on the road. Even more, the Ertiga has plenty of modern specs for its price.
Aircon, alloys wheel, radio CD/MP3, USB port, central locking, electric windows, fog lamps, and a multi-function steering wheels are available variably according to models. All models boast a ventilation unit above the driver’s head which ensures the second and third rows of seats receive warm or cool air. Safety specifications are also taken care of as the Suzuki Ertiga features ABS brakes with EBD and dual front airbags.
Safety and comfort taken care of, then comes the driving experience which is sheer pleasure. This vehicle has the ability to absorb bumps from even the worst roads. It also features commendable ground clearance, making this vehicle ideal on the country’s deteriorating road network. The vehicle feels well built too. Power comes from the tried-and-trusted 1.4-litre naturally-aspirated four cylinder found in other Suzuki products. Power is rated 70 kW, while the torque figure is listed at 130 Nm. Petrol economy of 6.6l/100 km cannot be scoffe at; it is hugely significant given our ever-rising fuel prices.
Though it is first and foremost a people carrier, the Suzuki Ertiga can be used to carry loads of goods by creating more space in it by folding the third row of seats down to increase the carrying capacity to 482 litres, and even up to 736 litres by folding the second row flat. There’s even extra 22 litres of storage space under the cargo floor if you want more from this low priced vehicle.
