Indo-Japanese carmaker Maruti Suzuki has launched the XL6 multipurpose vehicle (MPV) at a price range between ₹9.79 lakh to ₹11.45 lakh. The XL6 is being branded as a premium vehicle and will be sold only through the company’s Nexa range of dealerships.





Speaking at the launch, Maruti Suzuki India managing director Kenichi Ayukawa, said that there has been a significant increase in demand for premium MPVs because of ever-evolving customer preferences. Maruti Suzuki always introduces products that match the consumer’s need. The XL6 MPV, Ayukawa said, is a testament to the company’s commitment to extend the newest technologies to customers. The car is a perfect balance of comfort, performance, style, space, and safety, he added.



The Maruti Suzuki XL6 is being sold only with a petrol engine. Its BS-VI compliant 1.5-litre motor is retained from the Ertiga. The engine produces 103.2bhp at 6,000rpm and 138Nm peak torque at 4,400rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, while a 4-speed automatic transmission (AT) is available as an option. The engine also gets Ertiga’s mild hybrid system.



The XL6 has features like LED headlamps, fog lamps, and daytime running lights (DRLs). The safety apparatus of the car includes antilock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake force distribution (EBD), and front seatbelts with force limiter and pretensioner. The car has a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment display unit which supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The cabin sports black leatherette upholstery and has automatic climate control with rear air-conditioning vents, and cruise control.



The XL6 is being sold in the Zeta and Alpha trims and both are based on the Ertiga. The car, unlike the Ertiga, is essentially a six-passenger vehicle with two captain seats in the middle row. Besides in-house competition from the Ertiga, the XL6 will lock horns with the Renault Lodgy and the Mahindra Marazzo in the Indian MPV segment.
