India's largest automaker, Maruti Suzuki, has launched the second-generation of Ertiga MPV in Indian market late last month with only petrol and diesel option on offer.

In terms of dimension, the 2018 Maruti Ertiga is rather bigger than its predecessor. Ertiga acts as a cheaper alternative for Toyota Innova Crysta and the recently-launched Mahindra Marazzo. As CNG is cheaper than petrol, it becomes a better economic choice over petrol.
That CNG is expected to be the solid choice for the city commutes
As per report released recently, the CNG kit will be offered with a 14-kilogramme capacity. There will be the extra cost for the system which includes insurance and RTO charges. The extra cost is claimed to be Rs 65,000. The dealerships will also provide a one-year warranty for the CNG kit.
