Instead of a seven-seater layout, the Maruti Ertiga Sport has a six-seater configuration, much like the XL6. This means that the MPV has captain seats in the second seat row¸as well as the third row. This helps the passengers who sit there feel more comfortable during a long journey. The MPV features an all-black cabin which adds to the sportiness of the vehicle.

Other outstanding features include a new SmartPlay Studio infotainment system and auto-dimming IRVM, etc.
