Maruti Suzuki has launched the Maruti Suzuki XL6 premium MPV in India at a starting price of Rs 9.79 lakh. The XL6 is available in two variants, Zeta and Alpha, both available in manual and auto form.
The single engine option is the K15B 1.5-litre petrol which first debuted in the Ciaz, this motor puts out 104PS and 138Nm, but is now BSVI compliant. This engine's mild-hybrid capabilities have been made available here too.
The electric motor adds start/stop, brake energy recuperation and torque assist functions. This motor is expected to be paired with a 5-speed manual or 4-speed auto.
Unlike the rear, which borrows heavily from the look of the Ertiga, the XL6's face is unique. The grille is now a widening hexagonal design, with twin chrome strips running through it. The headlamps are quite sharply cut and sit flush with the grille. There's heavier body cladding on the lower part of the car and a more sculpted bumper as well. The faux skid plates and dark alloys add more aggression.
The images show that the XL6's dash design is quite similar to that of the Ertiga, with its continuous air-vent look, but with a premium all-black touch to it and upmarket gloss-black panels. The infotainment unit also seems to have been upgraded to the new Smarplay Studio interface. The rest of the interior also gets an all-black treatment, with the middle getting captain seats in place of a bench. Equipment levels to be close to what the Baleno and S-Cross offer, there's automatic wipers and headlamps, full LED headlamps, more airbags, aside from all the features already available in the Ertiga.
