Maruti Suzuki has introduced new connectivity features to Baleno, Ertiga and XL6. Their feature-rich variants, ones having the SmartPlay Pro (seven-inch) and SmartPlay Pro+ (nine-inch) infotainment systems, get the new tech. This update will also be rolled out for existing customers via an OTA (over-the-air) update.

All three vehicles now get wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The MPVs come with a seven-inch touchscreen while the range-topping Baleno gets a nine-inch unit. Another new feature is the TBT (turn-by-turn) navigation on the MID (multi-information display), and even on the HUD (head-up display) of the top-spec Baleno. However, TBT navigation on Ertiga and XL6’s MID displays is only available via Google Maps with Android Auto, and not with Apple Maps via Apple CarPlay.
