According to a report by Carwale, the Ertiga which has been spotted multiple times recently and Maruti may finally unveil the new version of its minivan at the event. Based on what has been seen on 'test mules' of the Ertiga, the new version will have a more sporty looking front with a fresh set of projector headlamps and a new bumper. The back may also feature a few changes, including new LED indicators.

Engine options are expected to be the same as the one seen in last year's version though there are rumours of an AMT variant being introduced. The information gathered so far should be taken with a grain of salt though, as Maruti is yet to officially confirm anything at the time of writing this report.

Apart from the Ertiga, a report by Overdrive also states that Maruti Suzuki may go ahead and also unveil a facelift of the Ciaz at this year's Auto Expo.The company's premium sedan is expected to feature subtle changes to its exterior as well as on the inside.
