    Spy pics have emerged showing what appears to be the new Suzuki XL7. According to Autocar India, the new XL7 MPV with a seven-seat configuration will be introduced in the Indonesian market soon and could see sales in ASEAN markets in the future. The XL7 seen in this image actually seems to have almost everything that the Maruti Suzuki XL6 sold in our market does. However, a closer look reveals a slightly altered grille and chunkier alloy wheels with a tyre size of at least 16 inches, making the vehicle look more rugged and crossover-ish than its Indian counterpart.
