Do you know which market Maruti Ertiga will be focusing after its grand welcome in India? It’s the north east. Ertiga is expected to be exported to Indonesian market starting next month. As per sources there are chances that Ertiga will be able to register a growth in double digits in this new market. A 10 percent growth is expected nationally. With the Ertiga launch on April 12 in New Delhi, Maruti is launching the seven seater car in other major states and cities of the country. Starting at just Rs 5.89 lakh, the Ertiga has proved itself that it is the closest rival of Toyota Innova in India.
