The Maruti Suzuki Ignis Gets Its First Update... Sort Of

The changes are so minor, you’d require a magnifying glass to notice them

  • Exterior updates consist of new front and rear bumpers as well as an S-Presso like grille.
  • Interiors get updated upholstery as well as an updated touchscreen infotainment system among other bits.
  • It retains the 1.2-litre petrol mill, but with a BS6 upgrade.
  • Likely to launch soon after the expo at a premium of over Rs 25,000 over its predecessor.
  • It will take on the likes of the Ford Figo, Maruti Suzuki Swift and the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios.

Maruti Suzuki’s lineup at Auto Expo 2020 consists of a variety of BS6-compliant models, CNG variants, an electric concept car and facelifted models. Among them is the first update to the Ignis hatchback since its launch in 2017. Will be offered in five body shades: New Turquoise, Lucent Orange Stargaze Blue Dual Tone Silver/Black and Lucent Orange Dual Tone Black. Based on the 5th gen Heartect platform, the updates to the Ignis aren’t as extreme as you think. 

On the outside, the changes are minimal, consisting of new front and rear bumpers with silver inserts to give the Ignis a more aggressive look. Interestingly, its grille has been updated and now shares a resemblance to the S-Presso. Aside from that, the overall silhouette, headlamps, and tail lamps remain unchanged.

Head inside and the facelifted Ignis looks nearly identical to its predecessor aside from a bigger boot at 275 litres, an updated 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system as well as standard and urban fabric options. Carryover equipment from the older Ignis consists of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, steering-mounted audio controls, ABS+EBD, dual airbags, and climate control.

The Ignis facelift retains the 1.2-litre K12B petrol engine, albeit with BS6 upgrades. It produces the same 83PS of power and 113Nm of torque as its BS4 predecessor. The petrol mill is paired with a 5-speed manual and an AMT gearbox option.

Expect the Ignis facelift to launch shortly after the expo. Prices are likely to start at a premium of Rs 25,000 over the current model owing to BS6 upgrades and additional kit. It will take on the likes of the Ford Figo, Maruti Suzuki Swift and the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios.
