The 2022 Maruti Suzuki XL6 facelift is expected to come with updated styling and some new features
New spy pictures of the heavily camouflaged test mule of the Maruti Suzuki XL6 have surfaced online. While some netizens feel that it could be a Toyota-badged version of the MPV, looking at the level of camouflage, it appears to be a mid-life facelift of Maruti Suzuki’s premium 6-seater MPV. Maruti Suzuki India has several new launches planned in 2022 including the new Vitara Brezza and Baleno, and the refreshed XL6 seems to be joining this list of upcoming new products.
Visually, we can’t talk much about it, however, based on the exposed section, we can tell that the car will come with an updated front end, which will probably get refreshed, more sleek headlights. The grille also seems to have been updated and now gets a honeycomb mesh pattern, while the front bumper appears to be largely unchanged. We don’t get a very good look at the rear, we expect the 2022 Maruti Suzuki XL6 to come with revised LED taillights, a revised bumper and possibly new alloy wheels.

We no longer get to see the cabin in these images, however, it still seems to get the 6-seater layout. Having said that, there are rumors that Maruti is working on a 7-seater version of the car, which will get a bench seat in the second row and will be dubbed as XL7. However, there is no confirmation on this yet. As far as the XL6 facelift is concerned, it is likely to come with an updated cabin with some minor changes and some new and updated features. Things like touchscreen infotainment system, multi-functional steering wheel, auto AC, rear AC vents will be retained. To sweeten the deal, Maruti Suzuki may introduce features like wireless charger and power-adjustable seats.

Under the hood, the XL6 will continue to be powered by the company’s 1.5-litre K15 petrol engine with SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) mild-hybrid technology with Li-ion battery. The engine is tuned to churn out 103 bhp and develop 138 Nm of peak torque, while mated to a 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic transmission options. Now, there are rumors that the company is planning to re-introduce the BS6 compliant 1.5-litre diesel engine, which could be offered with the new XL6. However, there is no confirmation of this.
