Maruti Suzuki XL6 | First launched in 2019, the XL6 is essentially a premium variant of the Ertiga. Sold through the Maruti Suzuki’s Nexa dealership, the XL6 may not be as popular as the Ertiga itself. Like the Ertiga before this, the XL6 is also likely to get only a few minor changes for its facelift. Where design is concerned, a new grille will be seen as well as tweaked bumpers and a new set of alloys. All of this will give the XL6 a slightly sportier stance. Over to the inside, a revised dashboard is likely and we will see a new 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Again, like the Ertiga, the XL6 will carry the same 1.5 litre petrol engine albeit with a bit more fuel efficiency. Producing 105 hp of maximum power and 138 Nm of peak torque, a 5-speed manual will handle transmission duties. The 4-speed AMT gearbox too will be replaced for a quicker 6-speed torque convertor. Both the Ertiga and the XL6 face the same rivals such as the Mahindra Marazzo, the Kia Carens and from higher up the Toyota Innova Crysta.
Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) on Monday said it has commenced bookings for the all-new version of its multi purpose vehicle, XL6, from the Nexa retail channel.
The model comes with next generation K-Series engine, advanced transmission, array of sophisticated comfort and convenience features, and bold styling, the auto major said in a statement.
“The XL6 is a unique proposition that perfectly marries a strong SUV-like design and the convenience of a spacious six-seater MPV.
The All-New XL6 embodies NEXA’s vision of being an aspirational lifestyle brand and creating an indulgent driving experience,” MSI Senior Executive Director (Marketing & Sales) Shashank Srivastava noted.
The model appeals to the discerning NEXA buyer who is looking for a perfect mix of style, comfort, performance and sophistication, he added.
“We have seen demand grow for premium MPVs over the past couple of years. We are confident that the All-New XL6 with its bold styling, host of new and advanced technologies along with enhanced safety will deliver an indulgent and stylish experience for our NEXA customers,” Srivastava said. MSI Chief Technical Officer (Engineering) CV Raman said the All-New XL6 will strike a perfect balance, which shall appeal to the modern car buyer.
Customers can book the model with an initial payment of Rs 11,000. This 6-seater model will be available at all 410 NEXA showrooms across the country.
