These captain seats have extra padding on the sides to provide maximum comfort during a long drive. The interior of the upcoming crossover comprises of a six-seater layout.
The exterior of the car gets all-LED headlamps and have a subtle chrome slat which extends as DRLs. The Maruti Suzuki XL6 will be powered by a BS6-compliant 1.5-litre petrol engine, that generates a maximum power of 103HP and a torque of 138 Nm.
The car will be offered with two gearbox options: 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic. The Maruti XL6 is not going to come with a diesel engine option owing to the BS6 emission norms likely to be applicable on April 1, 2020.
The price range of the Maruti Suzuki XL6 is expected to be around INR 50,000-INR 70,000 more than the Ertiga. The premium crossover would be competing with the likes of Mahindra Marazzo and Toyota Innova Crysta in the Indian market.
