Just days after spy shots leaked the exterior and interior of the Maruti XL6, its official exterior image has leaked online, giving the clearest look at the design yet. Meanwhile, Maruti Suzuki continues releasing teasers of the XL6 on NEXA's Facebook page. The company will launch the new MPV on 21 August 2019.
The Maruti XL6 is spawned out of Maruti Ertiga which is an immensely popular product in its segment. Save for the unique front-end, every other angle clearly indicates it's a derivative of the latter. It features a more aggressive front fascia comprising flatter hood, larger hexagonal grille with twin chrome slats, edgier, LED headlamps with LED DRL strip, wider lower grille and repositioned fog lamps with plenty of black cladding around it.
The black cladding around the front fog lamps follows below onto the more muscular front bumper and extends to the sides to cover the entire length. Silver garnish on the rocker panels, black ORVMs, black alloy wheels and silver roof rails further add to the style on the sides. At the rear, spy shots have shown that the only differences compared to the Maruti Ertiga will be a restyled bumper with vertical light reflectors and a skid plate.
The Maruti XL6 will measure 4,445 mm in length, 1,775 mm in width 1,700 mm in height. Compared to the Maruti Ertiga, it will be 50 mm longer, 40 mm wider and 10 mm taller. The wheelbase will be the same - 2,740 mm, and so will be the turning radius - 5.2 metres. Under the hood, there will be the BS-VI K15 SMART HYBRID petrol engine under the hood of the upcoming Maruti XL6. This unit produces 77 kW (104.69 PS) at 6,000 rpm and 138 Nm at 4,400 rpm. Transmission choices will include 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic units.
It is widely known by now that the Maruri XL6 will only be available in two trim options including Zeta (lower) and Alpha (higher). The Zeta grade will be equipped with standard features such as SmartPlay Studio infotainment system, full LED headlamps with DRLs, all-black interior theme, captain seats for the second row and alloy wheels. The Alpha grade will be kitted with additional features such as a reverse camera, leather seats and cruise control, dual-tone exterior colour scheme and blacked-out alloy wheels.
The Maruti XL6' prices should start in the INR 10-11 lakh (ex-showroom) range.
