Maruti Suzuki has launched the much hyped about XL6 6-seater in Goa, priced at Rs 9.79 lakhs (ex showroom). The XL6 measures 1775mm in width, 4445mm in length, 1700 in height and uses a wheelbase of 2740mm. Buyers can choose between two trims Zeta and Alpha along with manual or automatic transmissions.
Sharing its base with the Ertiga, the XL6 comes with a design, Maruti Suzuki calls bold, iconic, sporty and aspirational. For starters, the front end is new, as it gets a high set bonnet, quad LED chamber headlights and daytime running lights which merge into the bold new grille. There’s also generous dose of body cladding and skid plates all around the car, while the roof rails add to the rugged look. The XL6 rides on 185/65 R15 alloy wheels which are finished off in black. Other bits that also get the black treatment include the wing mirrors and tailgate spoiler.
The interior makes use of the basic layout of the Ertiga, but gets a full black treatment for a premium feel. The dashboard though shares it basic design with the Ertiga, receives faux wood and dull allumium inserts along the dash and door pads. The highlight of the interior though is the individual seats in the middle row known as captain seats that get side armrest along with slide and reclining function. Though the last row is a bench it does get reclining and flat folding feature as well for better comfort
On the features side, the XL6 comes with LED daytime running lights, quad LED projector headlamps, Smartplay infortainment system with the usual connectivity options, 60:40 split rear seats, cruise control, keyless entry, push button start and automatic headlamps as well as automatic climate control.
Mechanically the XL6 is powered by a BS6 K15 petrol engine that puts out 77kw at 6000rpm and 138 Nm of torque at 4400rpm. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic. It also comes with progressive smart hybrid technology with Lithium-ion battery. Thus the XL6 delivers 19.01 kmpl for the manual transmission and 17.99 kmpl for the automatic gearbox.
Maruti Suzuki has also paid attention to safety and provided the XL6 with ABS with EBD, speed warning system, driver and co-driver seatbelt reminder and rear parking sensors.
