When noticed closely, you can see that the Ignis resembles a lot like Wagon R and a hint of the Celerio too. The three slats on the c-pillar, a throwback to the Giugiaro-designed Suzuki Fronte CoupÃ© from the early seventies, are called Suzuki Progressive Triad mark.
The interior reminds more of the latter as it was the Celerio which upped the interior quality standards. The Ignis’ interior is as contemporary as the exterior. The entire layout of the dashboard is new with straight lines dividing the top and bottom-half, also accommodating air-con vents. Aircraft-styled toggle switches for the HVAC replace conventional knobs and push-buttons.
The Triad also progresses onto the lower-half of the centre console which is colour-coordinated to the exterior, just as the inside door handles.
The Ignis will get a 1.2-litre Dualjet petrol engine that produces maximum power output of 83hp and maximum torque of 113Nm, while the 1.3-litre Multijet diesel engine will churn out peak power at 75hp and peak torque at 190Nm. Both come mated to a five-speed manual gearbox as standard and AMT gearbox as optional.
The Ignis gives a company claimed fuel efficiency of 20.89kmpl for the petrol variant and 26.80kpl for the diesel engine.
Ignis will be available in four different variants, Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha. The Sigma variant of the Ignis will only be offered as a petrol option while the other three will be offered with both, petrol and diesel options.
The features list for the new Ignis includes projector headlamps with LED DRLs, 15-inch alloy wheels, Smartplay touchscreen infotainment with Apple CarPlay, automatic climate control, keyless go with push button start and 2 DIN audio system. Moreover, Maruti Suzuki Ignis will be the first sub Rs 10 lakh car to get LED headlamps.
The Ignis will come in 6 color options- Uptown Red, Pearl Arctic White, Tinsel Blue, Urban Blue, Glistening Grey and Silky Silver.
