The country’s largest car company Maruti Suzuki India is bringing an updated version of its other big vehicle, the XL6 today. A number of luxurious features will be present in this car, and just before its launch, the company has released teasers showing some of them.
Ventilated seats will be available for the first time
With Maruti XL6, the company is going to offer ventilated seats for the first time. This option will be available for both the driver and front passenger seat. As the hot and humid season lasts for a long time in India, and the winter season comes for a short time in some parts of the country, the demand for ventilated seats among car buyers increases.
Tata Motors offers ventilated seats in its new vehicles, but for the first time in a Maruti vehicle, the option will be available. The major reason ventilated seats are becoming more popular is to prevent the driver and passenger from sweating during long trips. There are blowers inside these seats that keep air flowing through tiny holes.
MPV will be Maruti XL6
The Maruri XL6 will be a 6-seat MPV. Kia Carens have increased competition in this category since its arrival. The company will launch it as a premium vehicle under such circumstances. It was about 3 years ago that the company introduced the XL6 as a premium version of the Ertiga. The XL6 will be a second-generation model.
Engine change will happen
In the new XL6, the company will offer the next-generation 1.5-liter K15C dual jet petrol engine. With a paddle shifter auto gearbox, it will have a manual 5-speed transmission and an automatic 6-speed transmission. It will produce 114 bhp max power and 137 Nm peak torque.
These will be great features
As part of the new XL6, the company can incorporate many premium features of Maruti vehicles. It will get a 360-degree camera and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Moreover, there will be Car Connect features like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Wireless charging, Smart Play Pro, and Suzuki Connect telematics will also be included in it. It comes with 4 airbags standard and 6 airbags in the premium version.
The car will open from the phone
The Suzuki Connect feature is available in this car. This feature will allow your phone to act as the car’s remote. This feature will allow you to unlock the car from your phone if you ever forget the key somewhere. Also, many advanced tasks such as turning on the AC to cool it down before getting into the car, lighting the headlamp, and finding the car in the parking lot can be performed with this feature.
New XL6 look
The company has also changed its look. So far, it has been revealed that the grille front has been given a sportier appearance. While the interior has been given a new look. It is expected to have ventilated seats. The company can maintain its starting price at Rs 10.14 lakh. It is currently being booked for Rs 11,000, however.
