Maruti Ignis Latest Updates
After two years and four months since its launch, the Ignis has achieved the one lakh sales milestone! Although the cross-hatch has remained more or less the same since its introduction, the addition of roof rails and new safety tech has improved its appeal further. Initially available with a choice of petrol and diesel engine, the Ignis is only available with the former as the carmaker discontinued the diesel variants in 2018 citing low demand.
Maruti Suzuki has updated the Ignis for the 2019 model year. The updates include the addition of roof rails on the outside, and new standard safety tech. The new safety tech includes rear parking sensors, co-driver seatbelt alert and speed alerts. Check out the details here.
The diesel variants of the Ignis had been discontinued after Maruti noticed a dearth in demand compared to the petrol variant. Not to mention, the overlapping prices of the diesel Ignis with the Swift, which is a more popular hatchback. Now, just the 1.2-litre petrol variant is on sale which makes 83PS of power and 113Nm of torque. Mated to this engine is a 5-speed manual transmission and an optional 5-speed AMT. The Ignis is a quirky and practical hatchback. It is spacious, loaded with top-of-the-line features like a touchscreen infotainment system, reversing camera, automatic climate control and steering-mounted audio and call controls. If you are looking for a practical city hatchback for a small family, the Ignis makes perfect sense. Giving the Ignis strong competition is the Maruti Swift and the Hyundai Grand i10.

Maruti Ignis Highlights
Maruti Suzuki is offering the Ignis with a single engine options: a 1197cc, 4-cylinder petrol. It is paired to a either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed 'automated manual' (AMT). The engine is peppy, even though it doesn't develop too much outright power or torque. The low kerb weight (825kg-960kg) helps the car’s efficiency too (Petrol – 20.89kmpl).
Exterior and Interior
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, complemented by the large roof rails added with the new update. 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.
The Ignis has 7 variants to choose from. The entry-level Sigma Petrol MT variant costs Rs 4.79 lakh, while the top-of-the-line Alpha Petrol AMT costs Rs 7.14 lakh. AMT is offered with the Delta, Zeta and the top-of-the-line Alpha variants.
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. The newly added roof rails also add a bit of grunt to the design. 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.
