The Ignis is available in nine paint schemes – six base colours and three of them with contrasting roofs and three interior colour options. The Ignis will get the I-create option for further customisations like we have for the Vitara Brezza. The five seater compact hatchback ushers a new design philosophy for Maruti cars being built for the millennials. The apparent tall-boy design is quirky and funky and the Ignis will be the first budget car in the country to get LED headlamps. It gets a tablet touchscreen display with Apple car play and other seamless smartphone connectivity options via Bluetooth. The toggle switches give the black and beige interiors an added dose of premium. All power windows, power mirrors, height adjustable driver seat at al comprise the comprehensive equipment list.

Being a Nexa product, dual front airbags and ABS with EBD are standard across the range. Under the hood, you have the tried and tested 1.2-litre four cylinder petrol engine that develops 83bhp at 6000rpm and 115Nm torque at 4000rpm mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. The 1.3-litre Multijet diesel also comes mated to a five-speed manual and develops 74bhp of power and 190Nm of torque. The automatic AGS gearbox is being offered with both petrol and diesel engines but only on the Alpha and Delta trims and not the top-spec Zeta trim.

The Ignis competes with the Hyundai Grand i10, the Mahindra KUV 100, the Tata Bolt and the Honda Brio. The base petrol variant Sigma is priced at Rs 4.59 lakh while the top-spec Alpha petrol comes in at Rs 6.69 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi. The Ignis diesel starts at Rs 6.39 lakh for the Delta diesel and the top-spec Alpha diesel comes in at Rs 7.80 lakh.
