Owning/Driving Ignis Zeta MT from last 14 months, crossed 9500 kms on odometer till now. My buying experience:As I had already owned secondhand Maruti 800cc and driven Alto K10 (1000 cc) cars in the past & now wish to buy a new car for the first time, I was looking for a 1200cc car, within budget of 6.5 lakhs, so shortlisted Swift, New Hyundai Santro, Tata Tiago and Ignis. Took test drive of each of them. Facelift Swift VXI was overall a good car but costing at around 7.06 lakhs OTR, Santro Asta test drive was not satisfactory. Tata Tiago XZ was at 6.30 lakhs OTR but had 3 cylinder engine.Further I found that Maruti Swift, Baleno, Dezire & Ignis have the same K12B petrol engine generating similar power.Due to heavy year-end discounts the Ignis Zeta MT was costing me at 6.39 lakhs OTR. In this price I was getting a 1200cc 4 cylinder engine car with 15 inch Alloy Wheels, Push Button Start, Body Cladding, Blue tooth & steering control enabled music system having 6 speakers, Fog lamps, Rear-defoggers with wash wipers, Auto folding ORVM, Extended warranty, NEXA Card & Fast tag. Unbeatable deal, So ignored all other options and finalised the Ignis.From test drive to delivery of the car, NEXA dealership have given me a very nice and memorable experience.Pros:Peppy driving.Standard safety features across all variants.Very good mileage, 14-15 in city & 20-22 on highways with AC on.High ground clearance.Sufficient head and leg room.Easy ingress and outgress.Low maintenance & service cost.Many small features in Ignis such as Door handle design, adjustable head rests on all seats, 60:40 foldable rear seat, Split tail light, bigger tyres, etc are found only in costlier and premium cars.Cons:Rear design of the car is very unique but not appealing to the masses and it is the sole reason behind low sales figures of the Ignis.Body panels are weaker compared to other cars as it easily get dents from hitting of small stones on the road.Somewhat stiff suspension.Servicing at regular Maruti Dealership, so no NEXA experience after purchase.My experience with the car:My routine driving is on poor roads. I have also taken a long road trip with family in my Ignis. But no problem at all.First 3 services within a year are free from Maruti. It costs me around 3600rs. for the oil change, wheel balancing alignment and minor spares till today.From my own experience I can say that Ignis is the Best car at this price point. I recommend to buy NEXA card, as the whole cost of the card can be redeemed within a year.Extended warranty is a gimmick and may be avoided.
So i bought ignis on 31st december 2021 and got the rejestration done on 3rd january 2022 in mass segment cars its the best purchase under the budget aerodynamics, Stability, Engine power, Comfort all match the next level for me, Not to compare with any other car because what i feel is every car is special in its own way.When im on highway drives my car gives 28kmpl without a/c and 25kmpl with a/c, So i am very happy with the over all.I have covered 10, 000 km in 6 months and now palnning to visit spiti valley as soon as possible with the all mighty ignis.
Absolutely superb value for money.Total cost was just rs 6 lakh and the inside is much bigger than it looks from the outside.I am six feet tall with two sons almost as tall and we have no problem with four passengers and even five for short distances.Did a goa trip with two balenos and a seltos and had no trouble keeping up.Great city car and for the occasional long drive (not too much boot space).If only the looks were more suv and less cutesy, This car would have been a top seller.

We selected this car as a family on 2017. I went by engine specifications, power output, ground clearance and drive dynamics. The wife and kid chose the color, a car small on the outside but large on the inside; while the father a previous Maruti Wagonr owner selected the model and the accessories. All this narrowed down to a bundle called the Ignis. Happy and feeling blessed with the Ignis.
