Maruti has had a rough patch recently, sales went down by 36% last month and its market share also dropped. Upcoming launch from Maruti’s stable happens to be the XL6 MPV which is basically a premium version of the Ertiga and will be retailed via the Nexa channel. Maruti will hope that it is able to revive sales, especially in the upcoming festive season.
