The 2022 XL6 will come with a new engine. Called the K12C DualJet VVT, it will replace the current K12B engine. It is still a 1.5-liter, four-cylinder, naturally ambitious petrol engine. K12C uses two injectors per cylinder whereas K12B uses one injector per cylinder. It increases control over energy which further helps in fuel economy growth.
Due to these improvements, the power output will be bumped from 105 PS to 115 PS This is an increase of 10 PS. The current engine produces 138 Nm of peak torque, we are still not sure about the torque output new engine but we expect it to be around 140 Nm. As standard, the engine will come with a 5-speed manual gearbox. The offer also includes an inactive start / stop system which will stop the engine when the car stops and restart the engine when the driver has engaged the clutch.
Maruti Suzuki will eventually replace the old 4-speed torque converter automatic transmission for a new 6-speed torque converter unit. It is still understandable for manufacturers to use torque converter automatic transmissions because they are the oldest form of transmission and the most reliable.
4-speed auto has no number of gears and sports mode. The new gearbox is expected to change gears faster and more smoothly. Maruti Suzuki will also offer a paddle shifter behind the steering wheel. The new 6-speed unit will help improve fuel efficiency and meet upcoming strict emissions regulations.
New infotainment system
Maruti Suzuki will update the infotainment system of XL6. It will now have a larger 9-inch unit that will run on a new user interface. We’ve already seen it at the 2022 Baleno. It will support Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

2022 Ertiger units are starting to reach dealerships. The exterior of the MPV has subtle changes. We still can’t see the 2022 Ertigar interior.
