    2022 Maruti XL6: powertrain details

    The biggest change is, of course, under the skin. The new XL6 comes with a new 1.5-litre DualJet engine, which uses uses two injectors per cylinder, giving it greater control over the fuel injection, and greater power and efficiency as a result. It also features Maruti's smart-hybrid technology with start-stop technology.

    It puts out 103hp at 6,000rpm and 136.8Nm at 4,400rpm, which is 2hp and 1.2Nm down on the outgoing 1.5 engine. The XL6 is, then, the second Maruti model to be offered with the DualJet 1.5-litre engine, and is expected to make its way into bigger Maruti models in the future. 

    The other big highlight is, of course, the new 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox with paddle shifters, which first debuted with the recently launched Ertiga. The standard 5-speed manual gearbox has been carried over as is. The updated XL6 is claimed to do 20.97kpl with the manual gearbox and 20.27kpl with the auto.

The starting price of the updated XL6 is Rs 1.81 lakh more than the outgoing model, which started at Rs 9.48 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

    Poll of the month

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
