Maruti Suzuki recently launched the 2022 XL6 in the Indian market. They updated the exterior design of the MPV, added a few features and even gave a new engine. The XL6 has always been a good looking MPV that has the potential for modification. Here, we have a rendering of the XL6 Facelift that has been imagined with a wide body kit.
The rendering of the XL6 with a wide-body kit has been done by Bimble Designs. The video is uploaded on the YouTube channel whereas the images are shared on their Instagram page. The artist has made the renders in different colours too. Overall, the XL6 now looks butch and has a strong road presence. Having said that, it is important to note that this is just an imagination of the artist and Maruti Suzuki has not announced any special version of the XL6.
Up-front, there is a different bumper. It is lower, has a front splitter and has deeper air dams. The main grille is also different and has honeycomb shapes. The chrome strip that connects the Suzuki logo is now coloured. The headlamp shape is the same but the LED elements and the Daytime Running Lamps are different now.
On the sides, there are squared-off and extended wheel arches. We can see how much the body kit has widened the XL6. There are also side skirts on the sides. The alloy wheels are new and get pin striping. They are wrapped in low-profile tyres. There are roof rails and window visors. The LED tail lamps have the same design but the elements are new. The rear diffuser is also new and comes with a faux diffuser. A spoiler has also been added at the rear.
