Maruti Suzuki is working on a premium version of the popular WagonR hatchback for the Indian market, which has been codenamed the Maruti XL5. The XL5 has been spotted testing earlier many times in the country. The company was supposed to launch the premium version of the WagonR sometime soon, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it had to be postponed.
However, as per the video posted by Abhinav Bhatt on YouTube, the XL5 has been spotted testing once again on the streets on Delhi-NCR. As seen in the video, the XL5 is being tested under heavy wraps. But once can tell by looking at the cars that it is a Maruti Suzuki product as the overall silhouette remains the same along with a few tweaks.
At the front, the upcoming Maruti Suzuki XL5 gets a split headlamp setup, tweaked air dam on the front bumper, with the fog lamps flanked on either end and a sleek grille, that resembles the one on the XL6. There have been some changes made to the rear end of the car, like the vertically stacked taillights and tweaked bumpers that make it look slightly different than the regular Wagon R. The XL5 is also seen running on 15-inch alloy wheels.
On the inside, the Maruti Suzuki XL5 will feature a similar cabin design and layout like it is seen on the standard Wagon R. Some of the new features that the XL5 will be getting are climate control air-con unit, 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a multi-function steering wheel. The Maruti XL5 will be sold exclusively through the brand's premium Nexa dealerships.
Mechanically, the new Maruti XL5 is expected to be powered by the same BS6 compliant 1.2-litre K12B petrol unit, which also powers the standard WagonR. Power output is likely to remain the same, 82bhp of power and 114Nm of peak torque. It will come paired with the same five-speed manual transmission with the optional AGS automatic gearbox also on offer.
Thoughts About The Maruti Suzuki XL5
The Maruti Suzuki XL5 will be introduced and sold as a premium version of the standard Wagon R. Once launched, which is likely to be early next year, the XL5 will go up against the like of the Maruti Ignis, Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, and the Ford Figo and Freestyle.
