The SUV market is very crowded in India with multiple categories in the segment. Now, Maruti is all set bringing a new SUV around Rs 6 lakhs. Reading this, many of you might think about the new generation Brezza but this is not the Brezza. Maruti seems to be planning to enter the micro-SUV segment to rival the Tata Punch. In this article, we have mentioned all the details we have about this new SUV.
We are talking about the new-generation Ignis here. The new-generation is expected to undergo a design overhaul in order to look suitable to take on the Punch. The Ignis is expected to become bigger and come with more SUV-like elements in order to take on the Tata Punch more effectively. The ground clearance could be raised with the dimensions expected to be revised.
The new generation car is expected to get an engine update as well. The brand’s new 1.2-litre naturally aspirated DualJet petrol engine, mated to a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic AMT gearbox is expected to power the new Ignis. This engine in current configuration makes about 88bhp & 113Nm of torque.
Rs 6 lakh Maruti SUV – Features
Maruti has started taking features seriously. This is clearly evident from their new recently-launched Baleno. We expect quite a few features to be borrowed from the Baleno. We expect it to get features like a 7.0-inch infotainment system like the new-generation Ertiga, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and some connected car technology features. A 360-degree camera could also be a part of the offer list since this will sit as an SUV in the brand’s stable.
Rs 6 lakh Maruti SUV – Price and launch
We expect that the new generation Ignis might start with a price tag of somewhere around Rs 6 lakhs (ex-showroom). However, as far as launch is concerned, we expect that the new generation Ignis might see a launch sometime next year.
