For a long time, Maruti Suzuki Ertiga-based premium crossover is in the works. The new car will be launched on August 21st in the Indian market and the vehicle has been spotted testing without camouflage too. While the exterior of the new XL6 is out now, a new video shows the vehicle’s interiors too.
The video on Auto Vikings comprises of a few pictures that show the cabin of the upcoming car. The pictures reveal that the upcoming car will get captain seats in the second row instead of the bench seat that is available with the regular Ertiga. It will make the cabin much more comfortable for the occupants. There is a picture of the front seats too where we can see a glimpse of the dashboard and the gear lever. The picture reveals that the upcoming XL6 will get an all-black cabin theme including the all-black dashboard.
The picture also reveals the chrome accents on the dashboard and the central console of the car. The XL6 will be a more luxurious version of the vehicle that also gets wooden inserts on the dashboard. The door handles are also chrome plated. Other features with the XL6 include a touchscreen infotainment system, 3-spoke multi-function steering wheel with a flat-bottom layout. It is not known if Maruti Suzuki will offer a longer list of features in the XL6. However, from the pictures, it seems like it will only get a different colour theme.
On the outside, the Maruti Suzuki XL6 gets quite a few changes. The most noticeable one is the thick black cladding that goes all around the boundary of the car. It adds the crossover look to the vehicle. At the front, there are more changes including a new grille and headlamps. The different grille and the headlamps make the vehicle look very different from regular Ertiga. Also, the bumpers are revised, which completely changes the front look of the vehicle and offers a revised look to the rear of the car. The new XL6 also gets roof rails and factory-installed black alloy wheels.
The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is powered by both petrol and diesel engine options. However, the upcoming XL6, which is based on the Ertiga will only get the petrol engine. This is because Maruti Suzuki has announced that they will discontinue the diesel-powered vehicles from the line-up when the BS6 emission norms are implemented in the Indian market. The Maruti Suzuki XL6 will get powered by a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine that produces a maximum of 103 Bhp and 138 Nm. It may get the SHVS mild hybrid system to increase the overall fuel efficiency too. Both manual and automatic transmissions are expected to be available with the car.
