Suzuki Philippines has recently discontinued the Ertiga’s beige interior color option. Initially, the small MPV was launched with a light-colored interior. A Black Edition was sent to market after a few months to keep interest peaking, but it appears that moving forward, the company will only supply its best-selling MPV with a black interior.
The evidence lies in Suzuki’s Philippine website’s price list. The Black Edition variant is the only unit that is displayed on-site and prices for the unit have increased across the board. Prices of the Ertiga have increased by P10,000 for the Black Edition, and the base variant can now be had for P738,000 as indicated by the brand’s product page banner.
Nothing much has changed other than the interior. Features across the board are still the same, all four variants now sporting a black and brown color scheme as standard. The seat materials are still fabric, and Suzuki retained are the faux-wood inserts that add some class to the cabin. Black plastics in the interior replace all the light-colored panels as well.
The Ertiga still has ample space and seating for up to seven passengers. The cargo and seat configurations are also exactly the same as before, as are the safety systems, and the 1.5L engine that produces 108 hp and 138 Nm of torque, coupled to a 4-speed automatic transmission.
Even with a slightly higher entry price, the Ertiga remains as one of the higher-valued small MPVs out in the market today. The model will now come with a material that hides stains better as standard, which was once a special edition. As stated earlier, prices for the Ertiga now start at P738,000 for the GA MT base variant, while the top of the line GLX AT model goes for P988,000.
