The overall length, width and height of the Maruti Ignis measure 3,700mm, 1,690mm and 1,595mm respectively. Its 2,435mm wheelbase makes it shorter than the Vitara Brezza. The crossover has a ground clearance of 180mm, which is good enough for Indian roads. Despite being compact in size, the Ignis offers a decent luggage space of 260-litres. One can expand it up to 415-litres by folding the rear seats.
As of now, the Mahindra KUV100 is the only rival of the Maruti Suzuki Ignis. Though, Maruti Suzuki’s new crossover also competes against the hatchback-based crossovers such as Chevrolet Beat Activ, Hyundai i20 Active, Toyota Etios Cross, etc.
The new Maruti Ignis is a fancy-looking crossover featuring a modish and unique design. Based on the Maruti Suzuki Baleno platform, the crossover weighs lighter and has robust body-built. Design elements such as a broad grille, boxy headlamps with U-shaped LED daytime running lamps and clam-shell bonnet create an aggressive front fascia. Interestingly, the Ignis is the first Maruti car to get the LED projector headlamps. While the plain surfaces and straight rooflines enhance its tall design, the jagged-up profile gives it a distinctive look. The flared wheel arches and large black alloy wheels complement the sporty appearance of the car.
What add more to its muscular appeal are sunglass-clad look at the front, shell-like roof and slits on the C-pillar. The blacked out A and B pillars give a sporty look to its side profile. There are power-foldable and adjustable wing mirrors with integrated blinkers and pull-style door handles instead of flush units. While the top-spec models come with 10-spoke, 16-inch aluminium wheels and 175/65 tyres, the entry-level variant gets 15-inch wheels.
The neat and simple rear design of the Maruti Suzuki Ignis doesn’t match its uniqueness and sportiness of the front. The car sports a conventional bumper with black insert, tailgate mounted spoiler, turn indicators and a rear windscreen wiper. The top-ranging model, with 2WD drivetrain system, carries a kerb weight around 880kg. Maruti Suzuki also offers several customisation options with the Ignis through a new Maruti iCreate app, with the help of which a buyer can personalise his/her car. The accessory package includes roof finish, decals, dashboard accents, seat covers, etc.
The cabin of the Maruti Ignis looks largely identical to the Baleno. There is a dual-tone dashboard with integrated touchscreen display and sporty orange highlights on dash and door panels. The SmartPlay infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility is exclusively available on the top-spec model. Other key features include a Bluetooth-enabled audio system with AUX-in and USB connectivity, regenerative braking, automatic climate control, heated front seats and keyless entry with engine starter button.
Unlike the European-spec model that gets MirrorLink touchscreen entertainment system with navigation and sliding rear seats, the India-spec model is devoid of them. The Ignis offers a decent legroom for the front and rear seat occupants, thanks to its 5-seats arrangement. The foldable rear seats can be adjusted for creating additional 165mm legroom.
The new Maruti crossover is one of the safest cars in its league. All variants of the Ignis get dual airbag, anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake-force distribution (EBD) and ISOFIX child seat anchorage, pedestrian protection, seat belt pre-tensioners with force limiters and speed sensing door locks as standard safety equipment. The Ignis also embodies Suzuki’s Total Effective Control (TECT) for occupant protection along with side impact and offset ahead of regulations.
