The 7-seat Maruti Suzuki XL6 is likely to get a bench seat arrangement in the mid-line and is expected to be launched early next year. This car will be introduced with a new name.
The 1.5-litre four-cylinder mild-hybrid petrol engine can be used in this new car from Maruti.
Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) is all set to launch the second generation Celerio later and it is based on a new platform. Its ratio is expected to be bigger as compared to the current model. The entry-level hatchback has revamped the exterior and more premium interiors, while new features will be added to spice things up. It will be sold with 1.0-litre petrol and 1.2-litre petrol engines with manual and AMT transmission options.
The launch of the new generation Maruti Suzuki Celerio is likely to bring in several updated models from the brand’s domestic range as the country’s largest carmaker tries to refresh its passenger car range. Media reports also indicate that the BSVI compliant diesel engine will come to meet the needs of the specific segment. While the second-gen Ertiga remains the best-selling MPV in the country, it is due for a mid-life update as the 7-seater car has been on sale since late 2018 without any major changes.
7-seater XL6 will get this new name
The Indo-Japanese manufacturer expanded the range of Ertiga in August 2019 by introducing the XL6 with a special middle-row captain seating arrangement. To differentiate itself from the regular Ertiga, the XL6 gets a redesigned front fascia. In Indonesia, the Japanese manufacturer introduced the XL7 early last year and it may make its way to India early next year. With this three-row mid-size SUV targeting family-based customers, MSIL can take advantage and introduce a 7-seater variant of the XL6 and it could go by the name XL7 to create a difference. The 7-seater MPV will likely offer a bench seat in the middle and the Indonesia-spec model is slightly longer and taller than the current XL6.
These changes will be made in XL7
We can expect it to get minor visual updates compared to the XL6 and the same 1.5-litre four-cylinder mild-hybrid petrol engine could be used for performance. It generates a maximum power output of 104.7 PS and peak torque of 138 Nm and is mated to a five-speed manual transmission as standard or a four-speed torque converter automatic unit as an option.
