- It will feature captain seats in the middle row.
- The Maruti XL6 will be available with a 1.5-litre petrol motor at launch.
The premium crossover MPV is targeted towards aspirational urban buyers who desire for a lifestyle vehicle with a high-level of practicality. Although based on the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, the XL6 will sport a new front-end that includes an all-new grille, redesigned LED headlamps with DRLs and a re-profiled front bumper.
It will also feature body cladding all-around, faux skid-plates at the front and back, and roof rails. The rear is, more or less, similar to the Ertiga. Notable changes include full-LED headlamps and a redesigned bumper. On the inside, the Maruti Suzuki XL6 will feature individual captain seats in the second row.
The XL6 will be positioned as a premium alternative to the Ertiga and will compete against the Mahindra Marazzo. At launch, we expect it to be offered with a lone 1.5-litre K15B four-cylinder petrol motor that will come mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. A four-speed torque converter automatic transmission will be carried over from the Ertiga.
It will reportedly be offered in two higher-spec variants – Zeta and Alpha. We expect it to be priced between Rs 9.50-10.50 lakhs (ex-showroom). The Maruti Suzuki XL6 will retail via the NEXA dealerships across the country.
