Like the Ertiga, the 2022 XL6 is also expected to get the new K15C petrol motor. 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 Ertiga, the motor will get the mild-hybrid electrical assistance already found on the pre-facelift Meruti Suzuki XL6 MPV. The new six-speed AT will also replace the older four-speed unit and may get paddle shifters.
