Maruti Suzuki XL6 Preview
The cross variant of the standard Ertiga was recently spied on test and is likely to be named as the Maruti Suzuki XL6. The upcoming vehicle will be sold at the Nexa chain of dealerships. As seen in the image, the Ertiga based premium MPV gets a completely new fascia with a new bumper, rectangular fog lamp housings, faux brushed aluminium finished skid plate and a wide air intake. Sitting above the bumper is a new grille with two chrome slats and a chrome finished Suzuki logo. Also on offer are new headlamps with LED DRLs.
On either side, the model will receive body cladding and blacked out parts including the alloy wheels as well as C and D-pillars. The model features the signature Nexa Blue paintjob that is seen on other models such as the Baleno, Ciaz and Ignis. The XL name was previously used on a long wheelbase version of the previous generation Grand Vitara and had 18-inches additional length over the standard Grand Vitara.
Powering the model would be the same BS-VI emission compliant 1.5-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine with SHVS technology. It is expected to retain the five speed manual transmission and four speed automatic transmission as seen in the Ertiga. The new Maruti Suzuki XL6 will be unveiled in India on 21 August.
