Ahead of the 10 October launch of the Ertiga facelift, the scanned copies of the MPV's brochure have been leaked online.

According to Rushlane, the brochure confirms the Ertiga facelift will get the SHVS technology with diesel engine and a four- speed automatic transmission with the petrol engine.

The system converts the kinetic energy of the rolling wheels into electricity for charging the battery. Combined with the idle stop/start system, the 1.3-litre engine will return increased fuel efficiency.
