2022 Maruti Suzuki XL6: Old Vs New

Kenneth John Updated: April 22, 2022, 11:46 AM IST

Maruti Suzuki XL6 has received its long-awaited facelift. The XL6 is simply a more premium Maruti Suzuki Ertiga with a higher price tag. The fact that Maruti distributes it through its NEXA shops attests to this. The 6-seater MPV has sparked a lot of curiosity among consumers and is nearly unchallenged in the MPV sector. Let's take a look at the differences between the new and the outgoing models of the Maruti Suzuki XL6.

2022 Maruti Suzuki XL6- Design

The Maruti Suzuki XL6 undergoes modest aesthetic alterations as a result of the facelift. New chrome surround grille, reworked rear taillamps, glossy black finish on the B and C pillars, sporty spoiler, new tailgate garnish, shark fin antenna and wider 16-inch diamond-cut allow wheels are among the changes. While there are minor changes, the general silhouette remains consistent with the previous model.

2022 Maruti Suzuki XL6- Engine and Gearbox

Similarly to the new Ertiga, the revised Maruti Suzuki XL6 replaces the previous 1.5L K15B petrol engine with the newer K15C engine. With DualJet technology, this new 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine produces 103PS and 137Nm of peak torque, which is 2PS and 1Nm less than its predecessor.

Fuel-efficiency figures have improved with the new engine, which now features a start-stop function. The XL6 MT has an ARAI rated fuel efficiency figure of 20.97 kmpl while the AT returns 20.27 kmpl.

The outdated 4-speed torque converter automatic transmission is replaced by a far more modern 6-speed one with paddle shifters in the 2022 Maruti Suzuki XL6.

2022 Maruti Suzuki XL6- Interior and Safety

On the interior, Maruti has added a slew of modern creature amenities to keep up with the changing needs of its clients. This includes features like ventilated front seats, an updated 7-inch SmartPlay Pro Infotainment System, in-built Suzuki Connect with over 40 features like remote AC control, driving analysis, vehicle health monitoring, Telescopic Steering, Premium Roof Lining, Soft-Touch Materials on Door Trims and Armrests, and concealed lighting in the footwell area.

The revised Maruti Suzuki XL6 also comes with an improved set of safety features, highlighted by the 360-degree camera, TPMS, four airbags, ESC and a hill-hold function. Standard safety equipment includes ISOFIX seats and all mandated safety features like four airbags, ESC, ABS, seatbelt reminders and speed buzzers.

Prices start from Rs 11.29 lakh for the base Zeta MT, going up to Rs 14.55 lakh for the new Alpha Plus variant. The Maruti Suzuki XL6 is pitted against the Kia Carens.
