Maruti Suzuki has discontinued the Ertiga diesel well ahead of the March 31 BS6 emission norms deadline. This news comes right in time when Maruti Suzuki has announced it has cleared its BS4 inventory ahead of the BS6 deadline. The manufacturer has dropped the diesel variants of the Ertiga from its official website. It is the second Maruti diesel car after the Ciaz to be discontinued due to BS6 emission norms. 


The Ertiga came with Maruti Suzuki’s in-house developed 1.5-litre DDiS diesel engine that made 95PS of power and  225Nm of torque. It was available with a 6-speed manual transmission only.
