After launching the XL6 (Ertiga-based premium 6-seater MPV) and the S-Presso last year, Maruti Suzuki is now developing another wannabe SUV, rumoured to be the 'XL5'. Though it shares some visual attributes with the Wagon R and some publications have even reported it to be the Wagon R EV, but it is most-likely the upcoming XL5 which is expected to go on sale towards late-2020.

As against the Maruti's tallboy hatchback, the upcoming XL5 seems to be sporting larger 15-inch alloy wheels that come borrowed from the Maruti Ignis. Also, its upright stance and high ground clearance are not to be missed.

Though the thick camouflage over the test mule smartly manages to hide away all the necessary details, but it is safe to assume that the car will feature a unique front-end with split headlamps, muscular bumpers and fog lamps. Coming over to the back, it will get high-mounted stop lamp and tail lamps, both will be LED units.
