Suspension Set Up-
Ignis equips McPherson Strut in front and Torsion Beam set up at rear for stabilising the car while on the go.
Belonging to the niche segment, Maruti Ignis faces threat from Mahindra KUV100, the only model it competes directly with. However, in terms of pricing Ignis stacks up against the likes of Hyundai Grand i10.
With crossover like looks, Ignis blends together the classic retro-looks and contemporary elements. The face is styled aggressively sporting square-shaped projector headlamps with LED units and L-shaped DRLs. The radiator grille in front, laden with chrome is another highlight. Down on the bumper, round fog lamps reinforce retro elements. View from side is decent with 15-inch alloy rims, metal work around wheel arches and thin cladding adding to the sporty quotient. Even with small wrap-around tail-lamps and large plastic strip on the bumper, the rear facet does not match the sporty character as on the front.
Interior is styled tastefully, with use of high quality materials bestowing upmarket look. The dual-tone colour scheme, good quality fabric and well-cushioned front seats with comfort thigh support work well for Ignis. Despite being compact in size, the car offers comfortable legroom, knee space and shoulder support. In terms of utility, Ignis scores high with large bottle holders in front and relatively smaller bottle holders at rear for the convenience of occupants. Additionally, it gets two cup-holders and medium-sized cubby holes for practical storage space within cabin.
The Maruti Ignis is the first mini crossover from the Indo-Janpanese carmaker in India. This new breed car promises excellent handling, great mileage and packs a great deal of features.
