Uber drivers rejoice, for there is a new Ertiga in the works.

Suzuki has teased a rendering of its new compact seven-seater station wagon, the XL6.

This new XL6 MPV measures 50 mm longer, 40 mm wider and 10 mm taller than the current Ertiga and those numbers should provide for better passenger comfort and superior luggage volumes.

Significant styling upgrades tally LEDs for both the head- and taillights (dramatically improving the overall design), and an all-new fascia, representative of Suzuki’s current global design language.

Suzuki’s cabin architects have added more black trim to the cabin, while ergonomics improve with the introduction of a height-adjustable driver’s seat. The middle-row occupants also benefit from an upgrade to individual seats, with armrests, instead of the Ertiga’s bench.

The most significant interior equipment upgrade is a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen, which is both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible.

General specification includes dual front airbags, brake force assisted ABS and rear parking sensors linked to a reversing camera.

Powering the XL6 is a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, good for 78 kW and 138 Nm, driving the front wheels via a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission.

The official global reveal of XL6 is expected later this month, with distribution to individual markets being confirmed after that date.
