In Indonesia, Suzuki has introduced a new top-of-the-line trim for the Suzuki XL7. The new range-topping trim, dubbed XL7 Alpha FF (FF stands for “Finest Form”), debuted at the ongoing Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) in Jakarta. It receives the same updates as the Suzuki Ertiga Sport FF, which debuted at the 2021 GIIAS a few months ago.
Prices for high-end models The Alpha FF trim manual variant costs IDR 294.2 million (Rs 15.52 lakh), while the automatic variant costs IDR 305.2 million (Rs 16.10 lakh). With cosmetic updates both inside and outside its cabin, the XL7 looks the sportiest in its latest range-topping avatar.
Exterior Design of Suzuki XL7
While the overall design remains unchanged from the current model, blacked-out panels for the front grille, lower front bumper, fog lamp enclosures, claddings on wheel arches and door sills, ORVMs, and pillars add sporty touches. A completely blacked-out roof and a roof-mounted spoiler add to the car’s sporty appeal.
Red accents in the air dam housed within the front bumper, wing mirrors, door sill claddings, and spoiler lip complete the sporty blacked-out look. The exterior highlights are roof rails, dual-tone alloy wheels with a star-studded pattern, and an L-shaped LED tail lamp.
Despite the sporty gloss black accents, Suzuki has used plenty of chrome on parts such as the door handles, front grille logo and character line, tailgate licence plate surrounds, and XL7 branding. The tailgate is even adorned with Limited badging in chrome, indicating that this is a limited edition model with only 150 units available in Indonesia.
Cabin Interiors & Features of Suzuki XL7
You’ll notice a sporty all-black cabin with red accents on the seat upholstery and knob encasings when you step inside. The Eco Leather material has been used to cover the seats. A new sound system with a digital sound processor from Soundstream, smart digital climate control, and a leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel is also included in the package.
There has been no mention of a change to the XL7’s powertrain. It will probably be powered by the same 1.5-litre K15B naturally aspirated petrol engine that produces 104 horsepower and 138 Nm of peak torque.
This engine is available with a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed torque converter automatic transmission. The XL7 is a seven-seat version of the XL6, a six-seater. In addition, the former is slightly longer and wider than the latter.
This month, Maruti will introduce updated Ertiga and XL6 models in India. Stay tuned to Auto Tech Portal for more automobile related content.
