The XL6 is equipped with all the latest safety features required. On the other hand, Marazzo too is one of the safest options as it is the only vehicle here with disc brakes on all four wheels. As the Lodgy and BR-V have been in the market for a long time, they need to be upgraded to meet the new BS6 safety norms coming up next year.
