Pros Of Maruti XL6
Economical Petrol Engine
That's true as in our fuel-economy test, the XL6 passed with flying colour with over 20 kmpl in real-world driving conditions. This comes with a smart hybrid system which helps in saving fuel. Moreover, this engine is good for city purpose and delivers 103 bhp with 138 Nm of peak torque. It gets mated to a standard 5-speed manual gearbox and an optional 4-speed torque converter unit.
Well, being a version higher than Ertiga it surely adds a bling to the styling, both on outside and inside. The cabin gets an all-black theme which works great for those who don't like the boring beige and black.
Well, it surely gets multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, automatic climate control, captain seats in the middle, a touchscreen infotainment unit with modern connectivity features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It is a no-nonsense MPV that suits the need of someone having more than a nuclear family.
Safety features on this one include dual airbags, the anti-lock braking system with electronic brake-force distribution, high-speed alert system, front seat belt reminder and if you are choosing the AT version then you get hill hold control and electronic stability program.
Fold-down the last bench row and you have enough to spend a good long weekend. Fold the captain and the bench, you have enough space to move your entire house (Surely, it'll take two to three turns) but it does the job. Tall passengers might complain about the lack of under-thigh support but in India, one can always manage.
The Maruti XL6 starts at an exciting price of Rs 9.85 lakh and the top model fetches till Rs 11.85 lakh. All prices stick to ex-showroom, Delhi. This premium MPV is available in two variants only - Zeta and Alpha and both of them get optional AT gearbox.
Cons of Maruti XL6
Suspension and Wheel Size
The low-speed comfort feels good but a little over 30km/h and youll notice the noise of large potholes thud! God be with the person sitting in the last row. Its bumpy! Something Maruti could have improved here. Also, the 15-inches, really Maruti? 16-inches would have easily enhanced the look of this premium MPV.
Noise, Vibration and Harshness levels
Theres a lot of road noise when you cruise past 70km/h and it surely enters the cabin. At higher speeds and on concrete roads, the cabin isn't well insulated. Another thing which the Maruti could have improved.
