    The XL6 looks completely different from the Ertiga as far as its frontal appearance is concerned. It features uniquely styles headlamps that get LEDs and the bumper is also restyled accordingly. The XL6 features all-around plastic cladding that the Ertiga doesn’t. While it does wear alloy wheels that are similar to the Ertiga’s, these are black in colour. The XL6 also gets roof rails, a feature that is missing on the Ertiga.

    The rear of both the cars is relatively similar in terms of appearance, with no design change given to the tail lamps. The rear bumper of both the cars is, however, differently designed.

     

    In terms of dimensions, here’s how the XL6 fares against the Ertiga:

    On the inside, the most noticeable change is the seat layout. While XL6 is a six-seat MPV, the Ertiga is a seven-seater. So the XL6 features captain seats in the middle, while the Ertiga gets a bench. The XL6’ cabin is done in an all-black scheme while the Ertiga comes in dual-tone beige-black interior.

    The XL6 is available in six exterior colour options: blue, khaki, red, grey, silver and white. Of these, khaki and blue (Nexa Blue) colours are not there on the Ertiga. The Ertiga’s blue exterior colour is different compared to the XL6’.

    As far as its competition is concerned, if you plan to buy an MPV that offers captain seats in the middle, there’s only the Mahindra Marazzo that presents an alternative to the XL6.
