The 2022 Maruti XL6 will go on sale on April 21, 2022 and will be powered by the new 1.5-liter four-cylinder K15C dualjet petrol engine.
Recently, Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) has officially started booking the 2022 XL6 in the domestic market as it can be stored through authorized Nexa dealerships or online. It will go on sale on April 21, 2022, and the updated Ertiga was launched only yesterday. It will be offered in three trim levels named Zeta, Alpha and Alpha +.
The more premium version of the Ertiga, with a six-seater arrangement of mid-row captain seats, will be powered by the new 1.5-liter four-cylinder K15C dualjet petrol engine found in the Ertiga. It will probably produce a maximum of 103 PS of power at 6,000 rpm and 136.8 Nm of peak torque at 4,400 rpm as the new Ertiga.
It will be connected to a new six-speed torque converter automatic transmission with a five-speed manual or pedal shifter. The country’s largest carmaker is expected to offer a CNG fuel alternative with an updated XL6 only at a later date. The claimed fuel economy figures are similar to those of Ertiga – 20.51 kmpl for MT and 20.30 kmpl for AT.
Just like its seven-seater siblings, the 2022 Maruti Suzuki XL6 will get minor exterior changes such as a redesigned front grille, smoky gray tail lamps, redesigned 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, rear integrated spoiler, UV cut glass and updated . The list of features from the bumper will include a 360-degree camera system, a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, ventilation seats and heel hold function as standard.
The 2022 Maruti Suzuki XL6 will be priced slightly higher than the Ertiga and will compete with the recently launched Kia Carens and Mahindra Marazzo. The infotainment interface is expected to be similar to the Baleno, and a sunroof with integrated car technology will also be on offer.
The XL6 will continue to be underpinned by the Heartect platform and no dimensional changes will be made. The updated model is in response to increasing competition for six- and seven-seat seats. Kia Carens is well-liked by Indian consumers because of its wide range of features and an aggressive price bracket.
