Bookings open for 2022 Maruti XL6

The 2022 Maruti Suzuki XL6 can now be booked through Maruti Suzuki’s Nexa line of dealerships. The refreshed XL6 is one of the two updated MPVs that the brand will introduce in April — the first being the Ertiga facelift expected to launch sometime this week. Both MPVs can now be booked at the Maruti Suzuki Nexa and Arena dealerships respectively, for a booking amount of ₹ 11,000.

The refreshed XL6 may not get many styling changes on the outside, except for bigger alloy wheels similar to the one seen on the Suzuki XL7 in Indonesia. The major update on the MPV will be seen under the hood in the form of a new K15C 1.5-litre DualJet petrol engine good for 115hp, which is 10hp more than the outgoing K15B 1.5-litre engine.

On the gearbox front as well, the new XL6, like the Ertiga, will get a six-speed torque convertor automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Fuel economy is expected to be better than its predecessor, thanks to the new gearbox as well as Maruti Suzuki’s tried and tested DualJet technology that also sees duty in the new Celerio, Swift and the recently launched Baleno.

On the inside, new upholstery and minor trim updates with an all-new infotainment system interface similar to the Baleno have been added. However, the screen size is expected to continue to be 7-inch. A teaser video confirms that the XL6 will not get a sunroof.

The price for the new XL6 is expected to be announced by April 21.
