Friends,
Today Maruti Suzuki has launched the all new XL-6. The MPV is the first 3 row vehicle from the NEXA stable. The XL 6 has been launched in Zeta & Alpha trims with choice of AT and Manual Gearbox. It will be sold through NEXA. Pricing of the XL-6 starts from Ex-Showroom Rs. 9.79 Lacs onward. Here's the Official Launch Coverage by The Automotive India.

Friends,
I feel with the XL-6 MSIL has done something similar to what Honda did with Mobilio & BR-V. The understated look of Mobilio didn't strike a chord with the buyers so they took a chance and introduced BR-V with a slightly more aggressive design and in comparison to Mobilio the BR-V was able to grab attention. While for Honda, it might have helped to give a new lease of live to a low-selling vehicle but, in case of MSIL, I feel there wasn't any real need to launch something like XL-6 which essentially is an Ertiga under the skin. This isn't the first time Maruti has done so. Recall the Celerio twins i.e one with the cladding and one the normal one. Ertiga in itself is a capable MPV and doesn't require such beefed up avtars. The XL-6 without diesel engine and a dated AT box might be just another contraption running on road and that leaves a big room for MPV(s) like Marazzo to come in. Honestly, if you ask me, I would go in for a Marazzo than a XL-6.

Regards

Ertiga is for masses , while XL6 is targetting the mass consumers , moreover the segment they are targetting lready have competent models now , so unless Maruti ensures that it ticks all the boxes , it won't sell.

The 4 speed TC , reminded me of Fortuner automatic (3L automatic ) , it had a poor reputation as had lags .

Really sums up my thoughts as well about the XL6. I am really confused on what to react to it and your post perfectly sums up my thoughts.
