Maruti Ignis Design

The new Maruti Ignis is a well-proportioned and stylish vehicle. It looks very trendy as well. This is a compact SUV that is about 3.7 metres in length and it has good road presence. The large front grille gives it a sporty and bold loo. The top end variant gets projector headlamps too. There is also daytime running LEDs embedded in the headlamp.These DRLs form a ring around the headlamps and look sophisticated.

The side profile does stand out and it looks stylish. The rear look is simple and has sharp lines. It has its own charm and while some may love it, some may not. The design of the Maruti Ignis is very trendy and innovative. For the first time, we see black alloy wheels on a Maruti car.

Maruti Ignis Interiors

The Maruti Ignis has one of the most stylish looking interiors, especially for the price it comes for. In terms of styling, fit and finish of the interiors, the micro SUV is just spot on. The dashboard is uncluttered and has straight lines. There is a touchscreen system on the top model and it has Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, MirrorLink. The other features include keyless entry, push start and stop, reverse parking camera, navigation. The black and ivory interiors look stylish. For safety, dual airbags and ABS with EBD is offered as a standard feature.

The Maruti Ignis is high on space. Generally, we do complain about the rear seat space on these vehicles. however it isn’t the case with the Ignis. Both the rows are comfortable and have more than sufficient head room and knee room. The boot size is decent enough for a vehicle of this size. Overall, there is hardly anything to actually complain in the car.

Maruti Ignis Specifications

Maruti ignis Engine

A 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.3-litre diesel engine are offered on the Maruti Ignis. Both the engines are offered with a five-speed manual transmission and even an automated manual transmission (AMT). The petrol is a peppy engine and it has good enough power for daily usage. At the same time, it even offers ease of driving be it in city or even on the highway. It doesn’t need too much of gear shifting. The NVH levels are fairly low and it doesn’t seem that the engine is on, as there is hardly any noise intruding into the cabin.

The diesel has some amount of noise and it has the regular diesel clatter. In terms of power, it has good enough too. There is a strong mid-range as the torque is churned before of the turbo at about 1800rpm. This also has good enough power for daily usage. Driving it is stress-free as this also has good amount of drivability. It isn’t as peppy as the petrol but it has good punch too.

Maruti Ignis Ride and Handling

The Maruti Ignis does a good job in the ride and handling department. First, let us begin with the basic usage. The steering wheel is light and one can zip through city traffic and tight lanes without any issues. The ride quality is just fine for daily use. When you drive on an open road, the handling does support the engine boost. This makes it easy to drive comfortably even on the highway. The car seems to be stable however it is the steering wheel that feels slack at higher speeds. We wish it did weigh up a bit. However, it is fine and one needs to get used to it.

Maruti Ignis Mileage (Expected)

Maruti Ignis Mileage

Variant Mileage
Petrol 20.89 km/l
Diesel 26.80 km/l

Both the petrol and the diesel engines shall be highly fuel-efficient. This petrol engine will return about 13km/l in the city and about 16km/l on the highway. On the other hand, the diesel will return 16 km/l and 20km/l in the city and on the highway respectively. The AMTs will see a reduction in efficiency by about 10%.

    We can’t confirm that, the accessories pricing depends on the city you are in. But to be honest, it will be cheaper to get Alpha than getting accessories fitted for sure. Our recommendation is t pick one variant below Alpha. That will be the best option to consider.

    extremely satisfied---Ignis

    I read all the reviews about Ignis and I personally won Ignis Delta 1.2 petrol booked through Nexa . I am very thankful to them for delivering very fast just within 15 days from booking and also thankful to Maruti Suzuki for this wonderful car. Reviewers, always review cars within same Engine Capacity (cc), look for the cars in the same price range, look for the features specially at the base model among different cars and most important is what about the Safety Packages at most within base models. Then why Ignis is compared with Kwid. What is the Engine cc of Kwid. Similarly, does base model of Kwid offers
