Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is one of the most selling MPV ( Multi Purpose Utility Vehicle) of India,but ultimately it’s dimension can’t sufficient as an MPV ,specially in third row & also comfort is not a priority in MPV as in Ertiga when compared to Mahindra Marrazzo which can provide sufficient space & quality also. Now Maruti Suzuki decided to modify Ertiga from 7 seater to 7-6 seater which is rename as MarutI Suzuki XL-6 which is not only provide space but quality also because dimension of XL-6 is same as Ertiga.Previous Ertiga is available on Maruti Suzuki showroom but Ertiga XL-6 will be available in NEXA which can be totally focus on quality & comfort because premium cars of maruti suzuki such as Ciaz & Baleno is available exclusively in NEXA showroom.
Design & Dimensions:
Ertiga XL-6 must be redesign with all new headlamps which contains projector headlamps & Reflectors. Grills must be design in an trapezoidal shape with the thick chrome line at the front which actually joins the left & right headlamps & DRL.Fog lamp housing is quit different & design in C-shape to grab the attention. Side view is as similar as previous ertiga but some few curves must be added to enhance the look & make it as ready for NEXA showroom also. Back view contains L shape tail lamps & probably LED tail might be shown in XL-6 with defogers & wipers. because it is a 6 seater MPV so boot space must be shown larger than the Ertiga.
Interior quality must be improve with all black design with some chrome tough at the dashboard, window & also on the centre console. Tough screen infotainment system is now increase from 7 inches to 8.2 inches which contains apple car play & android auto.Long Ac vent at the left connected to centre console & small AC vent at the right is shown at the front.Might be possible to get wireless charging at the front. Rear seats are not Sofa seats but they are arranged like captains seats which can provide more comfort & space to sit , so definitely in terms of luxury & it doesn’t matches with previous ertiga. Third row will also get captain seat’s option so in terms of comfort same experience will offer in 1st,2nd & in the 3rd row. There is now doubt of space like headroom & leg room because dimension’s are same as previous ertiga so you will get 10% more space.
Engine & Transmission:
Well it is very well known fact that Ertiga doesn’t provide a powerful engine especially in an MPV but same 1.5 Litre engine will be provided in an ertiga which provides 89 BHP of power with 151 Nm of torque. Mentioned engine must be petrol & there is no plan of maruti to launch diesel variant for XL-6 because Maruti will plan to stop the production of diesel cars in 2-5 years .
Safety Features in Maruti Suzuki XL-6:
Well ABS & EBD are compulsory according to Indian standard so these basic features are shown in base variant & brake assist & EBD are also shown but in top model only. 5 Airbags must be provided in the top model & 2 airbags in base variant.
Pricing of Maruti Suzuki XL- 6:
Price may vary from 8 lakhs & goes up to 12 lakhs. So ultimately in competition with Renault Triber Maruti Suzuki XL-6 stand for comfort & Quallity.
