In its second generation, XL6 will be offered with a new engine, new set of gearbox besides several other changes, both inside and outside.

2022 Maruti Suzuki XL6 facelift design

The new Maruti Suzuki XL6 will come with certain design updates on the outside as well as the interior. According to the teasers released by the carmaker, the XL6 will look sportier with a new design of chrome strip on the grille. The dual-tone alloy wheels, which are expected to be 16 inches in size, will also have a fresh design. The rest of the MPV, as shown in teasers, appears to remain similar to the outgoing model.

Maruti will continue to offer the new XL6 in two trims, which include the Zeta and Alpha. The 2022 XL6 will come with six exterior colour options like Arctic White, Splendid Silver, Grandeur Grey, Brave Khaki, Opulent Red and Celestial Blue. Maruti is also likely to offer dual-tone paint scheme for the Alpha trim.

Inside the cabin, Maruti will introduce new tech updates like a new infotainment system, 360 Camera among others. However, in terms of styling, the interior is likely to remain largely same, barring introduction of new upholstery and possibly ventilated front seats too.

As far as safety is concerned, Maruti is going to equip the new XL6 with four airbags as standard and may offer six of them for higher variants.

With a host of new updates, Maruti hopes XL6 will offer more premium feel than before and match up with the likes of lower variants of the Kia Carens as well as have an edge over other rivals like Mahindra Marazzo. Maruti currently offers XL6 at a starting price of 10.14 lakh (ex-showroom) and goes up to 12.02 lakh (ex-showroom) for the top-spec variant.
