Launched in July-2019, Maruti Suzuki Tour M diesel (Maruti Ertiga taxi diesel) has gone unnoticed in the media so far. Priced at Rs. 9.81 lakh, the new entry-level Maruti Ertiga diesel has been quietly re-branded as the Maruti Tour M.
Like the recently-launched XL6, this base variant too will be differentiated from its real-world donor vehicle with very basic exterior looks and trimmed features to keep the cost low. The new Tour M will be available in a single variant, offered in choice of the fuel based variants, the Petrol-CNG variant will be VXi and Diesel variant will be VDi. A total of 3 color options available – White, Silver and Black.
2019 Maruti Tour M diesel features the halogen projector headlights, ORVMs with turn signals, chrome grille, dual-tone interiors, audio system with Bluetooth connectivity, multi-function steering wheel, air-conditioning with 2nd-row AC vents and safety features like dual airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist, speed limiter set at 80 km/h, rear parking sensors and ISOFIX child safety seat anchor points.
Mechanicals remain unchanged, with the same BS-IV compliant 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine churning-out 94 BHP @ 4,000 rpm and 225 Nm @ 1,700-2,500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and is rated to deliver 24.20 KMPL of maximum fuel efficiency.
