Maruti Suzuki is India’s largest passenger car manufacturer and the latest model in their line up was the premium version of the Ertiga MPV, ‘the XL6’. It is the first MPV to be exclusively sold via Nexa chain of dealerships. Maruti has launched the XL6 MPV to give their customer a premium experience or feel that was otherwise missing on the normal Ertiga. The XL6 comes in two trims Zeta and Alpha and the prices start at Rs 9.7 lakh, ex-showroom.
Now, Nexa Experience has released four videos on their YouTube channel that explains key features of the XL6 premium MPV in detail. The videos explain features like ABS & EBD, Maruti Suzuki SmartPlay Studio, Automatic gearbox and leather captain seats.
ABS & EBD
This is the first video. it shows how important is it to have ABS as standard on any of our vehicles. ABS helps by not locking the wheels when brakes are applied in emergency situation, thus helping the driver to maneuver the car away from the obstacle easily. The video even demonstrates how ABS and EBD work and also show the difference in braking in an ABS equipped and non-equipped car.
SmartPlay Studio is the name of the application that Maruti Suzuki customers can use to keep a track of the health of the vehicle, trip history, instant fuel economy, connect their mobile devices via Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. It enables the user to call, text, play music, navigate easily using the touchscreen infotainment system.
Maruti Suzuki XL6 comes with both manual as well as automatic transmission. the automatic transmission used here is a four speed torque converter unit. The Automatic gearbox comes as an added advantage in city traffic conditions. the gearbox is very responsive and it even comes with an option for ‘L’, which is the first gear and ‘2’, the second gear that would help during a steep climb.
Leather Captain Seats
Unlike Ertiga, which gets bench seats in the middle row, the new XL6 comes with captain seats. The leather wrapped captain seats are much more comfortable and premium than the regular fabric ones found in Ertiga. With captain seats in the middle. the seat layout of XL6 has gone from 2+3+2 for 2+2+2.
Unlike Ertiga, Maruti Suzuki XL6 is only available with a petrol engine. It uses the 1.5 liter K-Series petrol mild hybrid set up that’s also offered on the Ertiga. This motor is also offered on the Ciaz, and makes 104 Bhp-138 Nm. There are two gearbox options on offer: a 5 speed manual and a 4 speed torque converter automatic.
