Maruti Suzuki is currently working on all-new Vitara Brezza for Indian market. The SUV was spotted testing couple of times and the undisguised pictures of the Brezza have also leaked online. It looks like along with Brezza, Maruti is also working on a facelift for XL6 premium MPV. A fully camouflaged version of the upcoming XL6 MPV was spotted testing recently in Haryana. Maruti XL6 is actually offered as a premium product from Maruti and is sold via Nexa dealerships. Maruti XL6 is based on Ertiga 7-seater MPV which is sold via Arena. The upcoming facelifted version of XL6 is expected to see some cosmetic changes.
The video has been shared by MotorBeam on their YouTube channel. The short video shows a fully camouflaged version of the MPV being tested. It looks like Maruti Suzuki will be making some cosmetic changes to give the MPV a fresh look. The changes are likely to be seen on the front and rear bumper. It is even possible that Maruti might slightly revise the front grille of the XL6 MPV.
The headlamps and fog lamps are likely to be revised as well. Video also shows a glimpse of the rear and it looks like the tail lamps, turn indicators and other elements at the back are likely to remain same. The other noticeable change on the XL6 facelift are the wheels. The current version of XL6 comes with gloss black multi-spoke alloy wheel but, the one seen here in the video gets a machine cut dual tone alloy wheel. The design on the wheels look similar to what Suzuki offers with XL7 in international markets.
In terms of dimensions, XL6 facelift is going to remain the same as current version. The interiors are also expected to remain the same but, there is a possibility that Maruti might offer an updated touchscreen infotainment system and new upholstery for the XL6. There are also reports that Maruti might introduce a 7-seater version of the MPV like international market. Currently Maruti offers XL6 with captain seats in the middle or second row.
Other than these cosmetic changes, Maruti Suzuki XL6 will continue to be offered with the same petrol engine. It will be powered by a 1.5 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that was developed by Suzuki in-house. The engine generates 105 Ps and 138 Nm of peak torque. It is currently offered with a manual and a 4-speed torque converter automatic transmission. The XL6 also gets Suzuki’s mild hybrid system with it. Maruti might offer a 6-speed automatic transmission with the upcoming Brezza and the same is likely to be offered with XL6 as well.
Maruti Suzuki is India’s largest car manufacturer and they have a variety of products in their line up. Other than all-new Maruti Brezza and XL6 facelift, Maruti is also working on facelifted version of Maruti Baleno. It has been spotted testing several times and undisguised pictures of the same have also leaked online. Maruti has not said anything about the launch of XL6 facelift but, it is expected to take place some time next year.
