The Suzuki XL6 has arrived in South Africa, offering a mix of crossover styling and MPV practicality. Check out local pricing for the Japanese firm’s 3-row newcomer…
The Suzuki XL6 has made local landfall in South Africa, touching down as the latest addition to the Japanese firm’s burgeoning passenger-vehicle range and offering seating for 6 as standard.
Arriving hot on the heels of the new Fronx, the 3-row XL6 has been around in other markets for a few years now. Based on the 7-seater Ertiga, it launched in India – where it is produced – in 2019, before receiving a refresh in 2022. It’s the latter, updated version that has now launched locally.
In South Africa, the newly launched XL6 line-up comprises 4 derivatives, starting at R329 900 and running through to R360 900. For the record, the 3-strong (closely related) Ertiga range is currently priced from R265 900 to R325 900, though comprises only base GA and mid-tier GL derivatives.
While the XL6 is offered in India with a mild-hybrid powertrain, here in Mzansi it is instead available with Suzuki’s familiar naturally aspirated 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine. As it does in the likes of the Baleno, Ciaz, Ertiga, Grand Vitara and indeed Fronx, this K15B motor delivers 77 kW and 138 Nm to the front wheels via either a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 4-speed automatic transmission.
The local XL6 line-up includes both GL and GLX trim levels.
