Spec Comparo: Maruti Suzuki XL6 vs Honda BR-V vs Renault Lodgy
Maruti Suzuki XL6 has been launched in India for the introductory price of Rs 9.79 lakh. The XL6 is the more premium version of the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga. That said, the Maruti Suzuki XL6 essentially rivals the same MPVs that were the Ertiga's rival, however, this time the XL6 has some trick up its sleeve. We compare the Honda BR-V and the Renault Lodgy to the newest entrant in the segment.
All the MPVs in the comparo displace the same 1.5-litre, however, have a power output ranging from 104PS (XL6) to 119PS (BR-V). The Renault Lodgy sits right in between at 110PS. Although the Lodgy is available with a more economic state of tune that produces 85PS. The XL6 is offered with only a petrol variant while the Lodgy gets only a diesel engine on offer. However, the Honda BR-V is the one with both petrol and a diesel variant. That said, we have considered the petrol option for it to directly stand against the Maruti Suzuki XL6.
