It is expected that the facelifted Maruti Suzuki XL6 will debut the K15C petrol motor in the Indian market. This is a development of the current K15B 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol and should come with a 10PS bump in power, upping outputs to 115PS and 138 Nm. This motor has already debuted internationally on the Suzuki Vitara where it’s paired with an electric motor. For the XL6, the motor will probably get the mild-hybrid electrical assistance it is already equipped with.
A more significant change expected is that the revised XL6 will get a new six-speed torque converter automatic to replace the earlier four-speed units. This too has debited on the Suuzki Vitara and in the XL6 should be accompanied by the five-speed manual
