Maruti 7-seater SUV
With the brand’s plans to expand its SUV portfolio, it will be launching a new Maruti 7-seater SUV, based on the Grand Vitara. Its wheelbase will obviously be longer than the current Grand Vitara because it will accommodate extra seats. Design-wise, it will be slightly different from the current 5-seater variant and will be bigger than it.
The upcoming SUV will likely sport a hybrid system under the hood. A 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine is likely to come, mated with an electric motor and the expected mileage will be somewhere around 27.97
Kmpl. The expected price range is likely 10.45 lakh – 19.49 lakh and once launched it will take on the likes of Tata Safari and Mahindra XUV700.
The XL7 will be similar to the current XL6, except it will be a 7-seater rather than the current 6-seater. The XL7 will likely be equipped with the 1.5-litre petrol unit mated with either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox. It isn’t the best, but it is quite refined and efficient.
Feature-wise the MPV will be loaded. Some of these include air-con vents in all rows, cruise control, cooled cup holders, climate control, and more. The car will also be expected to come with LED headlamps, fog lamps, and alloy wheels.
There isn’t any timeline provided for its launch but it’s expected to launch by November 2023. The pricing is likely to start from Rs 11 lakh and will take the likes of Mahindra Marazzo and Kia Carens.
