Spied: Maruti Suzuki XL6 ahead of launch in August
New Delhi : Maruti will be launching the upcoming XL6 people mover on August 21, 2019. First image (leaked) of the car have surfaced on the internet. The new model will be sold via Maruti's Nexa premium dealerships. Maruti Suzuki has christened this new model as XL6 based on its six-seat cabin.
For the people who have less knowledge about the brand, it recently phased out seven-seat model XL7, sold on the name of Vitara in India and abroad.
The Maruti Suzuki XL6 is based on the Ertiga MPV but gets multiple changes outside and in. The new model will be getting the all-new large front grill, bigger LED headlamps and chunkier bumpers.
The XL6, as seen from the spy shots earlier, gets a slightly raised ride height and also gets body cladding along its sides and also on the rear bumper, along with a faux skid plate. While there are noticeable changes, a major chunk of the car seems to have taken forward from the current Ertiga.
The interior is likely to be all-black for the XL6 and the model, going by its name, will feature a six-seat cabin with two separate captain chairs for the second row.
The car is also likely to be smartly equipped with Smart Play Studio infotainment system.
Under the hood, the XL6 gets Maruti’s newest 1.5-litre petrol engine that also does duty on the Ciaz and the Ertiga. There are talks that the BS6-compliant version of this 1.5-litre engine will debut on this model.
