Maruti Suzuki Nexa is the third-largest automotive sales channel in India. In the last four years, they have sold over 1 million cars. The brand is going to get a new model — Maruti XL5. It is going to be based on the 2019 Wagon R. The car is expected to be revealed at Auto Expo 2020 with updated BS6 petrol engines. This is more premium and it will compete with Hyundai Grand i10 and Tata Tiago.
According to reports, the XL5 will have LED taillamps and an LED high-mounted brake light. It is expected to have LED headlamps as well. The car is also going to have alloy wheels, which were not available as a factory option on the Wagon R.
The cabin of XL5 is expected to be upgraded according to the current market design. The XL5 is expected to come with the latest Smartplay Studio and four speakers. The vehicle is expected to be powered by Maruti’s K12B 1.2-liter engine. There will probably be more variants of the car with a more powerful engine.
The car is expected to be priced at 5.5 lakh and it might go as high as 7 lakhs. The car doesn’t look all that appealing on the eye, but I guess it is down to each individual.
