Maruti Suzuki XL6 First Drive Review of 2022 is the best MPV for the family Maruti Suzuki XL6 2022 Review: Is It the Best Minivan for Your Family?


Maruti Suzuki has designed the new XL6 with great care. Not only does it look bold and sporty, but it has also become more premium than before. Its design is the same as before, but some elements make it feel better. The headlights have been preserved from the outgoing model. The headlights are LED units and only the turn signals have halogen bulbs. Everything has been renovated except the headlights. The most important change is the new grid that looks much better. The design of the grille is simple but attractive, chrome has been used here. You will definitely love the front look of the new Maruti Suzuki XL6. The company has redesigned its bumper. Apart from that, it has a full matte black coating that further enhances its design. On the front, this coating is visible on the bumper, while there is a matte silver brush plate on the bottom of the bumper.


Speaking of the side profile of the new XL6, what attracts you the most are the new 16-inch alloy wheels that are double-tone machined. Apart from that, a plastic coating is observed at the wheel passage, but in our opinion, if it had been made a little thinner, it would have helped to give it a better appearance. Chrome door handles are sure to catch your eye and impress. The side profile of this minivan gives it a sturdy look and looks a bit muscular due to the character and design lines of the shoulders. Other than that, the roof railings have been made of matte silver.


The rear of this minivan is now more premium and sleek than before, here are the new rear lights that catch your eye. Although the design of the taillights is similar to the outgoing model, the style has changed a bit. The rear lights have been smoked. The new XL6 has a darkened stripe on the rear door, which is a chrome strip. The Maruti Suzuki XL6 and SmartHybrid badge has been given on the back door. Overall, the new XL6 looks cooler and better than before and there are no complaints about its design.



Maruti Suzuki has always been known for offering very practical interiors to its vehicles compared to other brands. I really liked the interior of the new XL6. The new XL6 has a full control panel, which has a granular wood finish under AC vents. Not only that, it also has a silver stripe under the wood trim. Its AC grids definitely impress with its design, three lines have been given to the board, which connect these AC grids. At the center of the dashboard is a 7.0-inch touchscreen entertainment information system. It supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but since it’s wired, the lack of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto wireless is palpable here.


You can see more than 40 connected features. The Maruti XL6 will include a 360-degree viewing camera, a front screen (which will show details such as navigation, speed, engine RPM and symbols on a glass screen). It has features like a wireless charger for smartphones. Apart from that, refrigerated cup holders have been placed in the center console and there is also the dial for cooling right next to it. It has a cool and better instrument panel. The interior of this vehicle is very nice, useful and practical. But here’s the lack of a wireless charger. But the special thing is that there are ventilated seats in front. It is better in terms of space and there is no shortage of it

Speaking of space, there is no shortage of space in XL6. The front row has good space, the head and legs space is decent, while the 2nd row has no problem, the captain’s seats are quite fun. Although the 3rd row space is fine, but only for small children, adults can also sit, but the cover can be a bit tight. Speaking of trunk space, in this one you get a standard trunk space of 209 liters and if you drop the 3rd row, you will get a trunk space of 550 liters. Other than that, if the 3rd and 2nd row seats are folded, you’ll get 692 gallons of boot space, which is great.

Engine and performance: The new XL6 is powered by a 1462 cc four-cylinder engine (K15C Smart Hybrid) that produces 101.6 hp at 6,000 rpm and 136.8 Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm. It comes with a 6-speed automatic gearbox and a 5-speed manual gearbox. The 5-speed manual is what has been preserved from the outgoing model, however, the 6-speed torque converter gearbox is brand new. But I spent time with his manual gearbox. In simple terms, the handling and driving quality of the new XL6 is quite impressive. The initial collection lasts until the end. After driving this vehicle on all types of roads, its suspension does not give the opportunity to disappoint on rough roads. We tell you that the company has made small changes to the vehicle’s suspension. Its 16-inch tires offer better grip. No complaints regarding braking. Gear shift is smooth and no problem. In one liter, this car gives a mileage of 20.97 km, says the company.


Maruti Suzuki’s new XL6 is now smarter than before. Its design is very impressive, as the cabin is premium, it is equipped with many good features. The seats are comfortable, perfect for long trips. The engine is very refined and does not feel underpowered. If you are looking for a practical minivan, the new XL6 may be the best option for you.
