The New Year Gift Of Maruti
This is a nice car. I booked the Ignis on the first week of the new year which was one week before the launch. This funky crossover hatch is full of attitude will surely take the Indian roads. Its SUVish look and interior will attract every enthusiastic car lovers. Those who are looking for a new stylish brand new car can surely move with this. The smart infotainment system and the boot space and the distance between the seats are the main attractions of this car. The dash is pretty beautiful. The price is also comparatively lower with the extreme quality. It has four variant the base model Sigma, Delta, Zeta, Alpha respectively. The variants Delta and Zeta have both manual and automatic versions. It has a fresh looking nose, the square dimensions, rear, the prominent wheel arches and faux vents at the rear. It's also seriously compact. its length is 3.7m, width 1.69m, and 1.6m tall. It has a 1.2l petrol engine and 1.3l diesel engine. It has a boot space of 260 litres. On the inside the Ignis can seat four adults in complete comfort we're talking knees free from backrest and heads clear of the cealing; the upright seating position undoubtedly is a huge help here. The driver also gets a descent amount of adujstability behind the wheel and visibility out is good too. And passengers in the back are sat in comfort as well. There is plenty of place for your feet under the front seat and with the seat base ata good height, the seating position is quite upright too. The styling on the inside is also impressive. There is an all new Suzuki steering wheel that looks considerably more upmarket than the current one, the two ton dash seems made for india and the instrument panel is neatly integrated as well. The floating centre console for examble has a mere a class like tablet and there are attractive looking neo-retro aircon controls switches. The Ignis also gets a fairly practical 260 litre boot. With 90 hp on board and a light modern chassis, the ignis makes good use of its power. There is a smoothness and immediacy to throttle inputs that feel quite good, and the Ignis takes off well even if you only use a light foot. This crispness in delivery allows for some relaxed and afortless driving. Ask for more power, however, and you have to be a bit patient. Yes, there is plenty of usable power at the top end, and the engine is happy to spin fast but getting their takes a bit of time, especially if you are in a wrong gear. Get fast 4000rpm and the Ignis displays a keenness that is quite refreshing. And what makes driving it with the engine properly wrung out so enjoyable is that there is a nice spike of power towards the top. Even suzukis 5 speed manual gear box is nice and precise, and that adds to the rather enjoyable driving experience.
