The Maruti Ignis is the third MSI product to be sold through NEXA premium dealerships.

January 16, 2017 – Maruti Suzuki Ignis has finally reached Nexa dealerships across the country. The crossover has made headlines not just because of its grand launch, but for its aggressive pricing as well. While the petrol variants are available within the range of Rs 4.59 lakh to Rs 6.69 lakh, the diesel models cost between Rs 6.39 lakh to Rs 7.80 lakh (all ex-showroom, Delhi). The Maruti Ignis has been made available in 11 variants spread across four trims – Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha. The entry-level Sigma variant isn’t available in the diesel version.

For the record, Maruti Suzuki claims that the small car carries DNA of an SUV combined with latest technology, uniqueness and innovation. But we can only comment on any of these things after driving it. With the all-new Maruti Ignis, the Indo-Japanese carmaker aims to attract the ‘Millennials’ – the young generation born between late 80s and early 90s. The company also confirmed that it will roll out more cars for the ‘Millennails’ in coming future. As a reminder, the Maruti Ignis broke cover in the iM-4 concept avatar at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, and had its India debut at the previous year’s Auto Expo.

8. Maruti Suzuki Ignis Competition

Mahindra KUV100 is the only rival of the Maruti Suzuki Ignis in India. Though, Maruti Suzuki’s new crossover might impact the sales of the hatchback-based crossovers such as Chevrolet Beat Activ, Hyundai i20 Active, Toyota Etios Cross, etc.

9. Maruti Ignis Exterior

With unique styling and crossover-ish stance, the Maruti Ignis instantly grabs attention. The crossover shares its platform with the Maruti Suzuki Baleno (i.e. Suzuki’s new generation architecture), thus making it lighter and robust. Some of its design elements have been carried forward from the concept version. The fascia has an aggressive appeal, thanks its broad grille, boxy headlamps with U-shaped LED daytime running lamps and clam-shell bonnet.

Interestingly, the Ignis is the first Maruti car to feature the LED projector headlamps. Elements like plain surfaces and straight rooflines enhance its tall design, and 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.

Maruti Ignis India taillight

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. The crossover’s top-spec model is assembled with 10-spoke, 16-inch aluminium wheels and 175/65 tyres, while the base variants come fitted with 15-inch wheels.

The rear profile of the Maruti Suzuki Ignis looks quite neat and simple with conventional bumper with black insert, tailgate mounted spoiler, turn indicators and a rear windscreen wiper. The top-of-the-line model, with 2WD drivetrain system, has a kerb weight of 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.

10. Maruti Ignis – Interior

The Maruti Ignis looks quite familiar from inside as it shares design and features with the Baleno & the Swift. There is a dual-tone dashboard with integrated touchscreen display and sporty orange highlights on dash and door panels. Maruti offers the SmartPlay infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility on the top-spec model of the crossover. The list of features also includes 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.

Maruti Ignis India boot space

While the European-spec model gets MirrorLink touchscreen entertainment system with navigation and sliding rear seats, the India-spec model is devoid of them. With 5-seats arrangement, the Ignis offers a decent legroom for the front and rear seat occupants. The foldable rear seats can be adjusted for creating additional 165mm legroom.

The standard safety features include dual airbags and anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), ISOFIX child seat anchorage, pedestrian protection, seat belt pre-tensioners with force limiters and speed sensing door locks. The crossover also embodies Suzuki’s Total Effective Control (TECT) for occupant protection along with side impact and offset ahead of regulations. It’s also complaint for pedestrian safety.

    As per my concern
    Good appearance from the front, but at the back end it is not as much impressive….
    Kirb weight is good at 880 Kgs(for front wheel drive), where as balino getting vibrate when the vehicle moving @120 km/H (where kirb weight is 800kgs for balino, light weight body)
    If the pricing of ignis between Ritz and swift, it is very good to buy or else going to swift is the better decisions….
    Any comment from any one…?

    Dear Sirs,
    technically which is better/comfortable to drive – amt/cvt/dual clutch
    and cheaper to maintain

    • Editorial Team

      Editorial Team
      July 6, 2016

      A Dual-clutch auto gearboxes will surely be much better to drive than an AMT, CVT aur conventional auto transmissions. It’s tough to call one of the aforementioned gearboxes cheaper to maintain, since it might vary for different cars and carmakers. For example, a Maruti Suzuki product either with an AMT or Torque Converter will be much easier to maintain than a Hyundai with any gearbox. But since AMT is basically a lot more affordable technology, it should ideally be easier on pocket to maintain as well.

    While waiting anxiously for its launch, I am disappointed on learning the fact that IMS Ignis will be sold only at NEXA. Consultants at the standard dealer simply response in utter helplessness when ask to assist in purchasing the car through them from NEXA when it is launched. I am sure there will be many other potential customers who are disappointed like me either becuase there is no NEXA dealer in their state or the delears are too far away. IMS may lost out many of its potential customers to competators due to this. Can’t really fathom the logic of selling this sub-suv with the price range mentioned above exclusively at premium dealership!
