2020 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 the 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.
2020 Maruti Ignis Engine
1.2-litre petrol will be offered on the Maruti Ignis. The engine will be 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 the 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. Now the new engine will be BS6 compliant. This engine surely churns some money out of the buyers. At the same time, the engine will be shared across a lot of cars in the Maruti lineup so the company will be at a profit while making research and development.
2020 Maruti Ignis Design
The Design on the 2020 Maruti Ignis will not see any major change. Some might like the design some won’t. This is how we can describe the styling of the Ignis. The fascia is dominated by a large front grille and it gets headlamps that are inside the grille. Then there are daytime running LEDs as well. The front bumper also looks stylish and there is around fog lamps in it. The Maruti Ignis is about 3.7 metres in length and it isn’t very tall either.
The side profile doesn’t seem like an SUV but more like a hatchback. It does have stylish looking roofline that comes down sharply. Then there are also the three slant lines that are running across. The rear looks different also. The tail lamps are well proportionate and the design is appealing. This is the first Maruti to get black alloy wheels. This car does look stylish and it looks trendy. The top-spec models get rear fogger and wiper too. Surprised not to see a rear spoiler on the Ignis. The only change that we could see will be the addition of some chrome elements in on the car.
2020 Maruti Ignis Interior
Interiors on the Ignis aren’t just stylish but are built well too. The fit and finish, quality of materials are definitely commendable. This will continue to be the case in 2020. The interiors will remain dual-tone but there is black and ivory white. A new colour combination will be seen. This has been made for the Millenials. There is a new steering wheel, which isn’t seen on any other Maruti car. It has a new set of dials and then new-shape for the AC vents too. A 7-inch touchscreen system dominates the centre and this looks like a tab. It gets all the features like Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, reverse camera and maps. The other features on the Ignis include keyless entry, push start and stop.
In terms of space, the Ignis offers a good amount of headroom and legroom for front passengers. The seats are large and supportive too. These offer a good amount of cushioning and are extremely comfortable too. The rear seats also have a good amount of space on offer as well. The thigh support though could have been better. The boot space too is good enough on the Ignis.
