Updated Jan 12, 2023

Suzuki Ertiga, this 7-seater MPV model appeared almost the earliest in the segment since 2012 but did not create much attraction from customers. Until 2018, when Mitsubishi Xpander was launched, the cheap 7-seater MPV segment created a large viral wave and since then this 7-seat MPV segment has become more and more competitive.


Exactly 1 year after the launch of Xpander, in June 2021, Suzuki introduced the second generation Ertiga with a noticeable change in exterior, chassis and comfort equipment. This change was immediately confirmed by sales of 2,500 vehicles.

Continuing to "surpass", Suzuki continues to launch the XL7 model with a more advanced positioning and follow the style of a multi-purpose SUV in 2021. And now, the 7-seat MPV segment is increasingly fierce. more fierce than ever with the presence of Toyota's Avanza and Veloz Cross duo or the latest representative from Korea named Hyundai Stargazer has also debuted.


Suzuki Ertiga 2023 is developed on the same chassis platform as Ertiga 2022, so the large size does not change compared to its predecessor. The Length x Width x Height of the car are 4,395 x 1,735 x 1,690 (mm) respectively, equivalent to other models in the same segment.

The wheelbase length of 2,740 mm is close to that of D-class separate chassis SUV models to ensure spacious interior space. The flexibility when turning around on bad roads the Suzuki Ertiga 2023 is okay with a ground clearance of 180 mm, and a turning radius of 5.2 m, making it easy for the car to climb the curb to turn around or manage in the city.



The first impression of the overall front of the Suzuki Ertiga 2023 now goes in the direction of luxury and is a bit old, rather than young and aggressive, hitting the segment of customers who buy family cars.

On Suzuki Ertiga 2023, there are more beautiful LED daytime running lights, adding a modern look to this MPV model. Below is the fog lamp cluster, which is still a halogen form for the yellow light to help bring a better "de-fog" effect, but basically, the light intensity is not high, car buyers should consider the minimum upgrade. 1 pair of LED underbody lights for safer night travel.



The body of the Suzuki Ertiga 2023 still has impressive embossed veins that bring a stronger feeling to the body. With the most advanced version equipped with a body kit, it creates even more charm. The wheels are still a swirl-spoke design, painted in 2 opposite colors, 15-inch size fits the overall. Although the small wheel size does not create a pit for the car, it will help save maintenance costs when instead of a small tire/tire size, it will be much cheaper than a larger tire/tire size.

Connecting the two lights is a chrome-plated bar. Below, the bumper is also a rough block combined with reflectors. The exhaust is hidden under the car. Suzuki Ertiga 2023 has not been equipped with an overhead spoiler, an integrated brake light on the ceiling.


In particular, in the most advanced version, the Suzuki Ertiga Hybrid 2023 Sport Limited version, there are additional body kits details such as overhead brake light covers, bodywork, front bumper, and rear bumper for a sporty style.

Compared to its predecessor, the Suzuki Ertiga has really made a complete makeover in terms of design and comfort. Consumers have had a nicer, more comfortable MPV car at a very reasonable price.
