Humbled by the success of Next Gen Ertiga and the blockbuster response it received from customers, Mr Shashank Srivastava, Executive Director (Marketing & Sales), Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said: “Ertiga has managed to win customer hearts with its focus on safety, design, style, space and performance.
