Emerging reports suggest that Japan-based auto giant Suzuki is working to introduce an Automatic Transmission (AT) variant of Ertiga in Indonesia in the near future.
Citing numerous Indonesia-based Suzuki dealers, various reports say that Automatic Transmission version of the car will soon be available for purchase in the Indonesian markets.
The Automatic Transmission version is expected to provide a big boost to the sales of the car in Indonesia. The car is already selling more than 7000 units per month on an average, thus it will be a right decision for the manufacturer to launch one more variant of the car to provide customers with one more option. At present, only Maruti Ertiga is available in Indonesian markets only in the petrol version. The petrol version of the car comes equipped with a 1.4-litre K-Series petrol engine.
If the speculations are to be believed, the Automatic Transmission version of Ertiga will also be made available in the Indian markets soon. India counts among the Japanese auto giant’s largest markets.
In case Ertiga really comes in the Automatic Transmission version, it will be the first MPV to come equipped with an automatic gearbox, which will provide it with yet another competitive edge over its competitors. The manufacturer is already offering the four-speed Automatic Transmission in the Dzire, SX4 and A-Star in India.
