Maruti XL6 premium MPV was introduced in the Indian market in August this year. The all-new Maruti car has received a good customer response in the local market. After the launch of the car, the company followers thought that it might not be able to compete with its rivals, but it received a remarkable number of customers in a few months. The concept of the all-new premium MPV is inspired by Ertiga. However, it has some distinct features like other SUV range.
Maruti XL6 has most of its features based on Ertiga but looks bold with some elements on the exterior. The new designing makes it look more sporty and husky compared to the seeker Ertiga. The 6 seater MPV is a top-specs variant which is available to buy from Maruti’s Nexa Dealership. The bonnet of the MPV looks higher that gives it a muscular appearance from the front. Comparing with Ertiga, XL6 offers an improved driving position for the driver.
Unlike Ertiga, XL6 is huge with more interior space and a husky appearance. It has received a new body cladding and new front new bumpers. Although, there is one thing in common with Ertiga which might have been better. The XL6 gets the same small 15-inch alloy wheels which were seen on Ertiga that makes it look somewhat smaller with less ground clearance. From the side, the vehicle appears completely like Ertiga that makes it less preferable.
Recently, the pictures of modified XL6 have surfaced online in which we can see new elements on the MPV. The images were shared by a Team-BHP member who has outfitted new Michelin Primacy-4 (205/55/16) as the original variant comes with 185/65/15 Bridgestone Ecopia tyres. The owner has spent Rs 70,000 on the new customization. Now, the car looks more worth its price. The modification has not affected the performance of the premium MPV.
According to the XL6 owner, “The firm footed and planted look on the new broad section Michelin tyres. The bolder stance with the upsized tyres, which give the XL6 a better ride quality, keep the understeer in check at high speeds and a firm footed feel while engaging in speeds in excess of 90kmph.” Additionally, the styling kit comes with new bumpers, faux skid plates, an upright front grille highlighting chrome elements, roof rails and some black elements on the tailgate and plastic cladding.
Maruti XL6 is available in six exciting shades: NEXA Blue, Magma Gray, Auburn Red, Premium Silver, Brave Khaki and Arctic White. XL6 comes with 1.5-litre K15B petrol motor under the hood making 104.7 PS power and 138 Nm torque, combined with a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed torque converter automatic transmission. It features Maruti’s SHVS mild-hybrid technology, which enhances the mileage.
The company offers XL6 in Zeta and Alpha variants, which is based on the Ertiga’s ZXI and ZXI+ trims, respectively. The prices of the MPV starts from Rs 9.79 to 11.46 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi). The Maruti XL6 premium MPV rival against the likes of Mahindra Marazzo, Renault Lodgy and Honda BR-V.
