Maruti Ignis Interiors
The Maruti Ignis has one of the most stylish looking interiors, especially for the price it comes for. The new Ignis isn’t just powerful but it is also the most affordable option too for the price. In terms of styling, fit and finish, the micro SUV is just spot on. 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 space of the Ignis is fabulous. 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. It seems that the company hasn’t left any opportunity for us to point out in terms of anything to complain about.

Maruti Ignis Engine
In terms of engine options, Maruti will be continuing with the 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel options. The petrol churns out 82bhp of power and 75bhp is for the diesel. Both these engines are offered with a five-speed manual and AMT option. Both the engines are peppy, but our preference is the petrol. This is quick and nippy. The diesel engine was surprisingly silent. In terms of performance, the AMTs are good enough too for daily city driving. There isn’t a major difference in the performance of the manual and the AMT when you drive the latter in the manual mode.
Maruti Ignis Ride and Handling
The 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
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%.

Maruti Ignis Design
The new Maruti ignis is looking stylish and appealing. This is a compact SUV that will be about 3.7 metres in length and does have road presence. The large front grille looks macho and it has projector headlamps. These are melded into the headlamp and they do look stylish. There is also daytime running LEDs embedded in the headlamp.
The side profile does stand out and it looks stylish. The rear look is simple, yet it has its charm. This is where the Maruti Ignis stands out. The design is just trendy and out of the box. For the first time, we see black alloy wheels on a Maruti car.
Maruti Ignis Competition
At the moment, the only possible competition to the Maruti Ignis is the Mahindra KUV100. This is another super compact SUV that is at the moment on sale. We can expect the Tata Tiago Aktiv and the Chevrolet Beat Activ to also make any entry into this segment.
