  • Maruti Suzuki XL6 is sold in four different variants.

  • Two have automatic gearboxes, two are manual.

  • No real ‘base’ variant for the XL6 since it is a premium product.

The Maruti Suzuki XL6 does what others have tried before: offer an alternative to the Toyota Innova at a much lower price. But prospective buyers always have that all-important question: which of the variants delivers the most value for money? 

The XL6 has four variants available to the customer – essentially they are two trim levels, and you get a choice of a five-speed manual gearbox or a four-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. Speaking of which, you only get the one engine choice, 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol that generates 103bhp and 138Nm. It is rated for 19kpl with the manual gearbox and 18kpl with the automatic. Back to the variants, then: there's Zeta, which is the lower spec of the two, and the Alpha, which is positioned at the top.

The Zeta isn’t exactly short on features, what with LED headlamps, climate control, cruise control, two airbags, ABS, EBD, and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment head unit. The infotainment system has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Oh, and if you opt for the automatic gearbox, you’ll get ESP and hill hold assist as well. Yes, we’re still talking about the Zeta (Rs 9.8–10.89 lakh) here. 

The XL6 Alpha (Rs 10.36-11.46 lakh) adds leather seat covers, a reverse camera, and automatic headlamps that will stay on for a while after you turn the car off and lock it, to show you the way home. You have to pay roughly Rs 56,000 more, ex-showroom, for these features, which seems like a lot. But if you want an automatic gearbox, you have to shell out Rs 1 lakh more, and that is a massive cost for a four-speed torque converter, ESP, and hill hold assist. 

Therefore, the XL6 Alpha with the manual transmission seems like the most value for money, at Rs 10.36 lakh, ex-showroom – which means it undercuts the XL6 Zeta with the automatic ‘box.
