PUNE: Maruti Suzuki, India's biggest car maker, on Friday officially started accepting bookings with a down payment of Rs 11,000 for its upcoming new model — Maruti Suzuki XL6, the multi-purpose vehicle or MPV with six seats.
The company will announce its price on August 21, the launch day at New Delhi. According to experts it could be tagged around Rs 9.50 lakh — 10.50 lakh in a fiercely competitive car market in the country.
The Ertiga-based Maruti Suzuki XL6 gets a more upright nose with a flatter hood, along with a new trapezoidal grille design with dual chrome strips at the centre.
It sports a chunky look upfront, with unique design elements below the LED headlights.
"The XL6 is an exclusive 6-seater premium MPV, designed to meet the aspirations of evolved and discerning NEXA customers," Shashank Srivastava, Executive Director, Marketing and Sales at Maruti Suzuki India, said.
The new MPV is high on comfort and convenience along with an array of safety features, he boasted.
The new XL6 is likely to be priced Rs 50,000 more than the Ertiga.
