Maruti Nexa XL6 vs Maruti Ertiga Major differences and specifications can be discussed here in this article. Maruti Suzuki will launch the XL6 Sporty MPV in the Indian market on August 21, more expensive than the Ertiga and sold through Nexa dealerships.
It has become the best-selling MPV in India, thanks to good cabin space and aggressive styling. Well, Maruti Suzuki is ready to release a more sporty version of the Ertiga as the XL6, and we’ve got you the exclusive details of the vehicle right here. When it comes to Maruti XL 6, how different is it from a normal Ertiga MPV? Well, here are all the differences you need to know about the upcoming Maruti Suzuki XL6.
- Captain Seats at Middle Row
Maruti XL6 targets premium buyers and is only available in the six-seat version. The XL6’s seating layout is 2 + 2 + 2 instead of Ertiga’s 2 + 3 + 2. Our exclusive pictures of the XL6 also show the captain’s seats arranged in the middle row of the XL6 instead of the bench seat which can seat three occupants like the Ertiga. It attracts many customers, especially business customers, towards the XL6. Business travelers prefer more comfort and this is where the XL6 comes into play. In addition, the XL6 also offers an all-black interior, leather seats, touchscreen infotainment with Apple CarPlay, and an Android Auto In (AT variant) in Ertiga.
- The XL6 sold from Nexa dealerships
Maruti Suzuki XL6 is sold through Maruti Suzuki – Nexa’s premium network. Pictures already show the Nexa branding on the XL6’s rear windshield. Ertiga is sold through Arena dealerships. The XL6 will be the fifth model to be sold by Nexa dealerships. Currently, Maruti Suzuki offers cars like the Ignis, Baleno, Ciaz, and S-Cross through premium Nexa dealerships.
- DIFFERENT DESIGN
Maruti Suzuki XL gets a different grille and headlamps, which gives it a unique feel. The XL6 doesn’t look like an Ertiga from the front. The XL6 gets wheel clamps and plastic cladding on the running board, which adds a macho look to the vehicle. The Maruti Suzuki XL6 is designed to be a sporty MPV based on the Ertiga and looks very different, confirming a different customer than the Ertiga.
Since the Maruti Suzuki does not offer a diesel engine in the Indian market from next year, the XL6 will be exclusively launched with a petrol engine. The car is powered by a 1.5-liter SHVS smart-hybrid petrol engine, which is also available with the Ertiga and Ciaz. Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is also available with diesel engines. However, the petrol engine option will only be available from next year.
- BS6 compliant
Maruti Suzuki XL6 comes with a BS6 compliant engine option from the basic version. The cleaner engine option is also available at a later date with the Ertiga but will be offered in the Maruti Suriki XL6 crossover.
