September 18, 2016: After being spotted in Europe, the Maruti Suzuki Ignis was again spied on the highways of Delhi NCR recently. The Ignis is already on sale in markets like Japan and will land on Indian shores through the Indian carmaker’s Nexa sub-brand at a base price of around Rs 5-6 lakh. Globally, the car is driven by either a 1.2-litre petrol unit or the 1.3-litre 4-cylinder diesel unit sourced from Fiat. Power is transmitted from both engines via 5-speed manual gearboxes. After rumours of its delayed launch, the carmaker has confirmed that it will be launched at its scheduled time around the festive season, with Harman Kardon audio systems also expected to make their way into the car.

Suzuki Motor Corporation made world premier of the Ignis crossover at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. The vehicle is the production version of the im4 concept, the Japanese automaker showcased earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show. Speaking with respect to India, it is expected that Ignis is one of the 20 products Maruti Suzuki has planned to introduce in the country and the is most likely to make its public appearance at the 2016 Indian Auto Expo in Feb. Moreover, if launched in India, it is expected that Maruti Suzuki will retail it from their premium NEXA range of dealerships.
This compact crossover measures a length of 3700 mm, width of 1660 mm along with a height of 1595 mm. Speaking of its rivals, Mahindra is also planning to launch a similar product in the country very soon, codenamed S101. When launched, Suzuki Ignis will compete with the Mahindra’s upcoming S101. Going further into details, we can see that the vehicle has a compact body structure with a boxy design. While the wheel fenders have been molded pretty well and gives an extended shoulder look. It looks pretty much different from any other model developed by Maruti Suzuki in India. We can also see that it features projector lamps in its headlight cluster that renders it a premium appeal. It also has masculine bumpers at front and rear that gives it a bold appeal. The production version has carried almost all the design trait from the concept version that was showcased at the Geneva.
Moving on to the insides, the dashboard design is little quirky and is indeed highlighting the overall aesthetics of the vehicle. It features a fresh new design which is not present on any of the Suzuki model worldwide. Unlike the Baleno which borrows the steering wheel with the rest of the clan, Ignis features a brand new steering wheel design which is expected to shared by Suzuki’s future models. Moreover, infotainment system has been given the main priority in the dashboard design, as it is a mounted one and protrudes out of the dash. Talking about the cabin space, this vehicle should provide comfortable seating for a minimum of five passengers (4 adults and 1 child). Considering its compact structure and width, we can say that it is best suited for four adults. As of now, it is hard to predict about the comfort features that it is going to get in our country.
As Maruti Suzuki is offering standard airbags with ABS in their recent models, it is expected that Ignis will also be offered with the same. Mechanically, in other countries, Ignis will be powered by the Suzuki’s 1.2-litre 4-cylinder Dualjet petrol engine. This motor will be mated with the company’s SHVS mild hybrid technology for improved fuel efficiency and comes with an option of 2WD and 4WD. Also expected is the 1.0-litre Boosterjet turbo petrol engine, which will be good at fuel efficiency and power. Among these, the 1.2-litre mill may get CVT automatic transmission option that will help it to be a tough contender in the entry level segment. Speaking of India, Ignis will also have a diesel option, probably the 1.3-liter DDiS190.
