Maruti Suzuki is planning to upgrade the Ertiga and XL6 7/6-seater MPV in the Indian market. The move is to keep up with the rising competition in the 6/7-seater MPV segment. While the second-generation Ertiga MPV was launched back in 2018, it about time the brand gave the car a mid-life update. The XL6 which is the premium version of the Ertiga with captain seats will also get a few upgrades. Both the XL6 and Ertiga are likely to get upgrades only in the cosmetic department. There will be no changes in terms of the engine and the mechanical components, say reports.
