In order to comply with upcoming safety norms, the 2019 Maruti Suzuki Ignis now gets reverse parking sensors, co-driver seatbelt reminder and a speed alert system which have been added to its extensive standard safety kit. The Ignis was already offered with dual front airbags, ABS and EBD, front seatbelt pre-tensioners with force limiters and ISOFIX child-seat anchor points as standard. With the update, prices of the funky-looking hatchback have also gone up. Here are the new prices:
