Maruti Suzuki XL-6 Features, Variants, Pricing & Value For Money Variant?
Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is of the best MPV of India but in terms of comfort, convenience & power Ertiga needs some improvement & changes in competition with best MPVs like Mahindra Marazzo. Maruti relaunch it’s ertiga in the name of XL-6 (extra Large 6 seater) with an all-new exterior, interior & powerful engine, but is it sufficient to compete with Mahindra Marazzo & Toyota Innova Crysta?
Surely Ertiga XL-6 is going to be a tough competitor for every MPV because of futuristic looks & design & the main point is that Ertiga XL-6 will exclusively available on Nexa showroom & we avail very well, all the premium cars of Maruti such as Ciaz & Baleno are available on Nexa showroom so Ertiga XL-6 is going to be the next premium car of Nexa & also that’s why the standard color prevail by Maruti is blue which is the indication of Nexa cars.
Design & Looks:
In terms of design & looks it’s almost matched with the design of the previous Ertiga so we can say XL-6 as a younger sister of Ertiga. Front look redesign with all-new projector headlamps & reflectors along with DRL’s. A thick chrome lining engraved at the bumper which connects left & right headlamps as well as DRLs also. The lower portion now comes with black finish design which also consists of the Fog lamp housing. Major changes happen in headlights because all the headlights except interior come with LED lighting option which will definitely give you a clear vision on roads during the night. The side profile is almost the same as Ertiga but matte finish element must be added on the rims. The previous Ertiga comes in 14 inches of wheel option which is not satisfactory for an MPV but in XL-6 15 inches of the wheel, the option must be available which will definitely give you a better grip on roads & also make it more compatible for offroading also. Electrically adjustable & reflectable ORVM with indicator lighting will available from base variant so definitely, there will be no cost-cutting in terms of features as seen in previous Maruti cars. Back look will get same L-shaped tail lamps with LED lighting, defoggers & rain-sensing wipers also.
The load capacity of the roof may increase because of no space for luggage in the boot space so ultimately roof space is the only option to carry out of your luggage.

Steering design is now modified & shape with flattening bottom shape to enhance the grip during a sharp turn. Tilt adjustment is the only option to adjust steering.
Captain seats are available in the second row which can 30% enhance the comfort & convenience as compared to sofa seats as available in the previous Ertiga. Armrest must be available for both 1 st as well as for 2 nd row also because of the availability of captain seats. Space can be definitely more than the previous Ertiga & also sufficient for tall heighted person. 1st & 2nd row can split in 60:40 ratio & third row can be split in 50:50 ratio but captain seats must be still available in the third row so in terms of comfort & convenience XL-6 is a very tough competitor of Mahindra Marazzo just because of effective pricing.

Engine & Transmission:
Ertiga XL-6 is available in petrol only because Maruti plans to stop the production of diesel car till 2022. The new XL-6 is now equipped with BS-6 compliant k15 petrol engine which offered 105 BHP of power with 138 Nm of torque with 5-speed manual transmission & 4-speed automatic transmission with torque converter. 1.5 Litre is the perfect engine option for XL-6 which is capable to produce sufficient power with good torque.
Value For Money Variant:
Zeta AT & Zeta MT are the two value for money variant because feature such as reverse parking camera, leather seats are not extraordinary features & can be easily available aftermarket so there is no such sense to spend 1-1.5 lakh just on leather seats & reverse parking camera so if Zeta MT will provide you all the necessary features as needed & if you want an automatic version then Zeta AT will provide you with all such dynamic experience with torque converter.
