|Suzuki Philippines officially launches the new and improved Ertiga combining strength and elegance in a compact body
Starting 2019 strong as promised, pioneer compact car distributor Suzuki Philippines (SPH) launches the new and improved version of its well-loved MPV, the all-new Suzuki Ertiga.
The new version of SPH’s best-selling vehicle features a tougher yet more elegant and compact look. It too is packed with the Japanese automaker’s latest technological innovations for a totally enhanced driving experience.
“With the increasingly diversified demands of the local auto industry and needs of end-users, we cannot be complacent when we’ve done well and stop innovating. We want to make sure that our customers get more than they deserve, which is why we decided to further improve the best-selling Ertiga. With its new features and enhanced functions, the upgraded MPV will definitely enable more Filipinos to live the Suzuki Way of Life and drive SPH forward,” said SPH Director and Automobile Division General Manager Keiichi Suzuki.

Strong and elegant styling
Sporting a fiercer look and boasting maximum functionality, the all-new Ertiga combines strength and elegance in a compact body, allowing Filipino families to go on adventures and seize the day in style.
The upgraded 7-seater MPV features a taller nose and a wide and elegant front grille. The lower roof side extends the head room while providing a more stylish side view. The integrated lower grille and fog lamps add a sense of stability and make the car look edgy. Deeper curves on the side and shoulder and character lines were added to reflect robustness and a stronger presence.
The interior of the all-new Ertiga is designed with sophistication and flexibility in mind. The new steering wheel has a flat bottom for better leg clearance while the gauges are painted with metallic chrome for a sleeker look. The seats have a deep curb with the fabric showing a 3D effect.

Superior riding comfort
The all-new Ertiga offers new comfort features to help make traversing Metro Manila traffic more bearable and pass the time away more pleasantly. The improved MPV has larger passenger legroom with the increased tandem distance of the 3rd row seats. For added relaxation, the third row has more headspace while the seats are designed with a reclining and tilt-down mechanism up to 16 degrees.
For better ventilation and convenience, a rear AC was installed to keep the 2nd and 3rd row passenger comfortable. Small storage spaces are also added all around, including a coin holder, ventilated cup holder, improved center console and door pockets, to accommodate more hand-carry items.
Top-tier performance and safety
The all-new Ertiga comes in a light yet highly rigid body, thanks to Suzuki’s new generation platform, the HEARTECT. The new frame effectively disperses impact energy to improve safety while reducing noise and vibration.
Another notable feature is the Total Effective Control Technology (TECT), which scatters collision energy across the vehicle frame to mitigate damage to the car and passengers.
“All the upgrades on the new Ertiga are designed to give Filipino riders the confidence to enjoy every adventure knowing they and their family are safe and comfortable. Beyond making technological improvements on our vehicles, our goal is to always ensure that our customers have an optimum driving experience,” added Suzuki.
Pricing and Colors
The all-new Ertiga is priced starting with GA at 728,000 PHP, GL MT 848,000 , GL AT 888,000 and GLX at 978,000. It comes in 7 colors: Pearl Glorious Brown, Metallic Magma Gray , Pearl Burgundy Red, Prime Cool Black, Metallic Silky Silver , Pearl Radiant Red and Pearl Snow White .
