2022 Maruti Suzuki XL6: what will be new?
Like most mid-cycle facelifts, the new XL6 will feature minor tweaks to the exteriors in the form of a new grille and reworked bumpers. The carmaker is expected to offer larger alloy wheels to give it a better stance, like ones available on the Indonesian spec car seen in the picture.
The biggest change is expected to be under the skin. As reported by us earlier, the new XL6 could come with a more fuel efficient 1.5-litre petrol engine. Additionally, the aging 4-speed torque-converter automatic will be replaced by a new 6-speed unit.
Other upcoming Maruti launches in the horizon
The new XL6 is a part of Maruti Suzuki’s plan to launch six new models by mid-2022. These include the Baleno CNG, updated Vitara Brezza, and DualJet-equipped Ignis and S-Presso. Later in the year, Maruti will launch the all-new Creta-rivalling midsize SUV that is being developed in collaboration with Toyota.
