So is the XL6 more premium than the Ertiga? Yes, it is. The revised looks, updated black leather-wrapped cabin and the captain seats enhance the cabin experience by a big margin. Plus, as an advantage, you also get to pick a fully loaded automatic variant, though only with a petrol heart.
But is the extra cost justified? Well, not entirely. For the extra Rs 70,000, you get automatic LED headlamps, cruise control, captain seats, blacked out elements and auto folding wing mirrors. But with prices starting at Rs 9.80 lakh for the Zeta MT and going all the way upto Rs 11.46 lakh (both, ex-showroom India) for the Alpha AT, we can't help but miss essentials like side and curtain airbags, or even small experience enhancers like an auto dimming IRVM, rain-sensing wipers, rear window blinds or one-touch window operation for all windows.
If you are looking for a family car with a touch of premiumness, and you don't mind paying more for the feel good factor - we'd recommend the XL6 over the good-old Ertiga.
