The new Maruti Suzuki XL6 is here, and it's got a lot to offer in terms of features and convenience in addition to an updated engine and a brand-new gearbox.

HIGHLIGHTS – The new XL6 is priced between Rs 11.8 lakh and 14.55 lakh ex-showroom. – Gets ventilated seats for the front row. – Gets a brand new 6-speed AT.

As the demand grew, Maruti went back to the drawing board and created a more premium version of the MPV that could cater to the premium end of the spectrum, and the XL6 was born.

Since then though the competition got smart, entering the market with even more premium vehicles, with newer engines and gearboxes that left the XL6 looking a little dated.

Maruti Suzuki is not one to take an offensive sitting down, and now their back with a newer generation that gets an updated engine, significant changes to the styling and a brand new automatic gearbox.

The 2022 Maruti Suzuki XL6 still retains the form of the first generation but builds on it with some significant changes to the styling.

The first major change is at the front with a redesigned grille that now features a chrome crossbar that connects the headlamps.

The headlamps too have been reprofiled, now featuring quad LEDs with an inset DRL.

At the flanks, you have new dual-tone 16-inch alloy wheels which add fresh appeal although, I liked the gunmetal finished alloys of the previous generation.
