Maruti Suzuki has been working on its new car Suzuki XL7 which is a seven-seater car based on its previous variant XL6. The images of the vehicle were recently leaked on the internet. In the appearance, Maruti Suzuki XL7 MPV looks similar to the India-spec Suzuki XL6. The launch date of the XL7 is not confirmed for India yet, but the vehicle is going to launch in Indonesia very soon in the coming weeks.
Although Maruti Suzuki XL7 looks the same as its previous variant XL6 but if you notice it carefully you will see slightly reworked grille with fatter tyres and alloy wheels with a tyre size of at least 16 inches. The interior of the XL7 is also expected to be same as XL6. Still, there could be a change. It might come with bench seats to go as a seven-seater offering.
The petrol engine of the Suzuki XL7 might be the same as XL6. Compared to the previous model, the XL6 utilizes a much bolder styling package. As far as the rivals concerned, the Suzuki XL7 will be a significant threat to the Mitsubishi Xpander Cross and Toyota Rush. Maruti Suzuki XL7(7 seaters) might be offered with a 1.5L K15B, DOHC, VVT petrol engine that does the duty to the Ertiga MPV in Indonesia. XL7 is also expected to get better ground clearance. The engine of XL7 puts out 105 hp of maximum power and 138 Nm peak torque.
Maruti Suzuki XL7 will likely be offered as an SUV because of its high ground clearance and raised hood as compared to the Suzuki XL6. The XL7 will be 50 mm longer (4,445 mm), 40 mm wider (1,775 mm) and 10 mm taller (1,700 mm) than the Ertiga. The price of XL6 MPV in India is between Rs 9.8 lakh to Rs 11.47 lakh, now lets hope for the best for the cost of Maruti Suzuki XL7.
