The XL6 is also likely to come with the Ertiga's 1.5-litre diesel motor. Both engines are mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard, along with an optional 4-speed automatic torque converter for the petrol model.

Maruti Suzuki introduced its first BS6 compliant petrol car, a Baleno in April 2019. This was followed by the launch of BS6 compliant petrol variants of Alto 800, WagonR (1.2-litre), Swift, Dzire and Ertiga much before the government stipulated date of implementation of the regulations. The BS6 compliant petrol vehicles will lead to a substantial reduction of nearly 25 per cent in Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions.
