2022 XL6 Powertrain

The XL6 and Ertiga are now offered with Maruti’s latest-gen 1.5-litre K15C petrol engine. It now gets a 6-speed torque converter automatic in place of the 4-speed automatic. The Maruti engine with mild-hybrid tech is far more efficient than the more powerful engines of the Kia Carens. The Carens offers both its petrol engines with a manual gearbox but only the turbocharged unit gets an automatic option.

Kia’s MPV is also the only one here to get the choice of a 1.5-litre diesel engine as well.
