Buying the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is a head over heart decision for most private car buyers.First impressions of the XL6 are impressive. Even from a distance, it looks imposing with the new front grille and the large headlamps. If you like laid-back driving, you will enjoy the XL6 both inside the city and more so on the highway. It is only available with the 1.5-litre Smart Hybrid petrol engine from the Ertiga. It is now BS6 compliant and makes 105PS at 6000rpm and 138Nm at 4400rpm. This engine can be had with a 5-speed manual or an optional 4-speed AT. We first got an opportunity to test the manual version. Claimed efficiency stands at 19.01kmpl for the manual, and 17.99kmpl for the automatic. However, when we tested the same engine in the Ertiga with the manual transmission, it returned 13.4kmpl inside the city and 16.kmpl on the highway.

The power steering installed in the Maruti XL6 is the same which is used in the Ertiga. The difference in the vehicles is the premium looks and features added in the XL6 for example captain seats, comfortable seats, etc.
