2022 Suzuki Ertiga Gets Hybrid Powertrain, New Gearbox


Suzuki is taking a different path when it comes to updating their Ertiga. The 7-seater small MPV recently got a mid-cycle refresh in one of Suzuki’s largest global markets, India, and as a result gets a hybrid powertrain and a brand-new gearbox.

The biggest update for 2022 is found in its K-Series engine. The K15C engine now features Suzuki’s Smart Hybrid system (at least for automatic transmission-equipped variants) and for that ups the fuel economy to 20.3 km/L (the manual transmission variant’s pegged at 20.51 km/L). The mild-hybrid system also slightly bumps up the power and torque figures to 103 horsepower (from 100 horsepower) and 136 Nm of torque (from 130 Nm). It also has idle start-stop functionality built in as well.



Accompanying the new electrified powertrain is the segment’s first 6-speed automatic with steering column-mounted paddle shifters. And unlike other Suzuki gearboxes, this one uses a traditional torque converter and not AGS (Auto Gear Shift) or a dual clutch system.

Along with the revised powertrain, the 2022 Ertiga gets a slight exterior and interior refresh. Outside, it gets a new front grille dubbed the Dynamic Chrome Winged Grille, a new backdoor garnish with a chrome insert, and new 15-inch two-tone machine-alloyed wheels. Inside, it gets a new infotainment system, reclinable seats for both the second and third rows, and added safety via 4 SRS airbags (up from two), ABS with EBD, and stability control with hill hold assist.



Should Suzuki Philippines consider electrifying the Ertiga to complete in the small MPV segment?

  1. Even if Suzuki Ph decides not to offer the Ertiga HEV yet, at least they shld offer the MPV w a 6-speed AT (instead of the current 4-AT).
    And since this is a family vehicle, please provide the Ertiga w at least 6 airbags (the 6-airbag system should be made standard in all vehicles).
