The all-new Maruti Ignis Compact SUV has been priced within the range of Rs 4.59 lakh to Rs 7.80 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
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.

Maruti Suzuki Ignis Video – Preview
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.
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.
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.
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.
