Maruti Suzuki XL5 Overview
Last Updated on 5th Sep'22: We expect that the XL5 will be a potential rival to the popular Tata Punch. This small SUV from the carmaker is expected to be available in both MT as well as AMT gearbox option.
While the XL6 is attracting huge numbers and is based on the Ertiga, the XL5 will be a totally different car and it will be sold via Nexa dealerships. The launch of the vehicle is not expected soon. The new Maruti Suzuki XL5 is expected to be launched by the second half of 2022 as a premium NEXA offering. It would be pitched against the likes of the Renault Kiger and Nissan Magnite.
What do we expect?
We expect MSIL to pitch it as a premium offering with features class apart when compared to the first cousin, WagonR from the Maruti Suzuki Arena offerings with an appealing design language. It would be based on the Heartect Platform with proportions similar to that of the WagonR with an updated front and rear fascia.
Maruti XL5 Expected Powertrain
XL5 is expected to be equipped with K series petrol engine options of 1 litre and 1.2 litre which deliver excellent fuel efficiency, with decent amount of power and torque, with both automatic and manual variants on offer, with an optional factory fitted CNG kit. The same engine being used in the Maruti Suzuki stable is to be tuned differently when compared to the Celerio and S-Presso.
Maruti XL5 Safety Features
The XL5 is expected to get a safety equipment package similar to that of the WagonR. Both these vehicles get ABS with EBD, dual-front airbags, rear parking sensors, a rearview camera and ISOFIX child seat anchorages as standard.
Maruti XL5 Expected Price and Launch Time
Maruti has not revealed any official information around the XL5. However, we think it might make it to India this year. The tentative price bracket of the upcoming model would be in the bracket of Rs 6-8 lakh. It was expected to debut in the Auto Expo, however the plans for this event were called off because of the pandemic.

Maruti Suzuki XL5 Detailed Review
The Maruti Suzuki XL5 will offer the same peppy 1.2 petrol motor that we see on other Maruti cars. This four cylinder unit is known for its refinement levels as well. We expect the XL5 to come with ARAI certified mileage of about 22 kmpl. Maruti XL5 is going to be available in both manual as well as automatic transmissions. Maruti will also look at offering the XL5 with a factory fitted CNG kit.
The performance of Maruti Suzuki XL5 can be good as compared to the Wagon R but would have been better if it has a control over the high-speed manners prediction.
The Maruti Suzuki XL5 is reported to have a hatchback look which will come with revised front and rear styling. The headlights, rear lights and bumper have been modified to improvise the look of the car from the exterior. Apart from a new element with the widths and space, the Maruti Suzuki XL5 retains most of its appearance from Wagon R. The car will have black alloy wheels that look similar to those seen on the Ignis. The car will also get LED DRLs, contrasting highlights on the body, an aggressive front grille like the XL6, distinctive roof rails, LED tail lamps, a bold bonnet sculpted with sharper lines adding a more aggressive theme to the car. Tyre size is also expected to go up as compared to the ones seen on the Wagon R.
Everything is conceptualized to provide a rather aggressive and sporty theme to the car.
The car will be significantly standing out due to its redesigned cabin with premium elements. It is believed that it will have an excellent boot space and will be a spacious 5 seater for the price.. The XL5 is expected to have additional features such as a Cruise Control, front central arm-rest and a better infotainment system. Due to its tall stance, the cabin will have an airy feel and tall passengers will feel at home. Like the Wagon R, we also expect the XL5 to score high marks as far as practicality and storage spaces are concerned.
The interior will be an USP due to the added features and ample storage space.
XL5 Ride & Handling
Passenger comfort is an important aspect for every car manufacturing unit. The Maruti Suzuki XL5 will provide good comfort due to its structure and good headroom. It will have ample boot space, armrest facility for the passengers to travel peacefully without tiredness. It will also offer easy controls, making it an effortless city car. That said, high speed manners might not be the best around.
Maruti Suzuki XL5 is expected to be very comfortable and smooth to drive.
Safety features like Reverse Parking camera, Brake Assist for reducing emergency braking distance, engine immobilizer, ESP with Hill Hold, ISOFIX Child Seat Arc, Pinch Guard for driver side Window, LED Front Fog Lamps and a LED High Mount Stop Lamp is expected to be added to the XL5. Such features make the car significantly different as we don’t get to see all such features in the current Wagon R.
The Maruti Suzuki XL5 has various added features that make sure to eliminate various risks and provide ample safety in case of emergency.
