The Ignis is Maruti's entry-level hatchback/crossover offering in its Nexa lineup of cars. While essentially a hatchback, the Ignis easily sets itself apart from the crowd thanks to a quirky, youth-centric design. There is an in-your-face look to the Ignis when viewed at from the front, while the rest of the car has a boxy theme to it. The Ignis brings in an air of freshness in design that is uncommon in this segment.

For its compact exterior dimensions, the Ignis is quite spacious on the inside. The luggage compartment has 260 litres of space which is only 5 litres less than that of the Hyundai Grand i10. It can seat only four adults comfortably though. Ingress and egress is easy from all seats, thanks to the wide-opening doors and the tall design. The quirkiness in design continues on the inside with the different shaped A/C vents, offset floating infotainment screen, toggle switch-like controls for the A/C, body-coloured panels on the centre console and the doors etc.
Maruti Suzuki is offering the Ignis with two engine options: a 1197cc, 4-cylinder petrol and a 1248cc, 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel. Both the engines can be paired to a either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed 'automated manual' (AMT). Both the engines are peppy, even though they don't develop too much outright power or torque. The low kerb weight (825kg-960kg) helps the car’s efficiency too (Petrol – 20.89kmpl, Diesel – 26.80kmpl), regardless of the engine powering it.

The Ignis has 11 variants to choose from. The entry level Sigma Petrol MT variant costs Rs 4.56 lakh, while the top-of-the-line Alpha Diesel MT costs Rs 7.54 lakh. AMT is only offered with the Delta and Zeta variants, which is a downer, considering the top-of-the-line Alpha variant gets additional equipment customers may want.

KUV100: The Mahindra KUV100 is the only other SUV-like hatchback in this segment and the only direct rival to the Ignis. Its funky design, fuel-efficient diesel engine and high equipment levels make it a compelling buy, while things like higher engine noise and excessive body roll make it less desirable.

Hyundai Grand i10: The mid-sized hatchback from Hyundai has been given a refresh to keep up with the Ignis. The Hyundai Grand i10 offers a premium interior feel, efficient but peppy diesel engine, fun to drive characteristics and class-leading interior space without burning a hole in your pocket.

The Maruti Suzuki Ignis is polarising in its looks, but that helps it stand out from the crowd. What makes it appealing is its well appointed and spacious cabin, efficient engine-transmission options and ride quality and comfort. While it may not be the most affordable car in its class, it makes up for that by offering the best in terms of standard safety tech and premium features. This quirky little hatchback is a style statement like no other.
