Ignis 2020 gets a fresh new design appeal, a more premium cabin and BS 6-compliant 1.2-litre petrol engine.
- Maruti Suzuki claims Ignis now has more room on offer on the inside.
After showcasing it at the recently-held Auto Expo 2020 in Greater Noida, Maruti Suzuki on Tuesday launched the all-new BS 6-compliant Ignis at a starting price of ₹4.83 lakh (ex showroom) for the Sigma variant.
Pre-launch bookings for the new bookings had been opened immediately after the car was first showcased at the Auto Expo earlier this month.
The company says the reception has been strong due to the plethora of changes and upgrades on offer in the face lift.
With an SUV design philosphy, the new Ignis has been styled with an imposing front fascia which now has a new front grille with a U-shaped motif and skid plate, updated LED projector head lights, redesigned DRLs, eye-catching rear profile and rear spoilers and roof rails.
The cabin of the new Ignis now gets dual tone ivory interiors and new modern pattern for seat fabric. The 17.78cm SmartPlay studio makes its debut in the car as well. It supports NAV, voice commands and more. The company claims that there is more space on offer on the inside than in the outgoing model.
Under the hood, the new Ignis comes with a BS6 compliant 1.2 litre VVT petrol engine. A five-speed manual transmission and AGS options are available as well.
The car is available in Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha variants with AGS transmission options available in all except Sigma. Ignis now also offers two customisation options - Acropolis and Scorcher. Two additional colour options are also available apart from the hues which were available thus far. The new colours are Lucent Orange and Turquoise Blue. The dual-tone colour options are available on Zeta and Alpha variants and will cost ₹13,000 over and above the price of the car.
Maruti Suzuki is confident that the new Ignis will be as popular as the outgoing model because of its contemporary looks and features. "We have recognised an increasing preference for feature loaded cars that have SUV-like high seating position and dominant road presence," said Kenichi Ayukawa, MD & CEO, Maruti Suzuki India. "We are confident that the all new IGNIS with its SUV design and spacious interiors will appeal to the customers."
Maruti Suzuki is also expected to officially launch the new Brezza with a petrol heart in the time to come. The car was showcased at Auto Expo 2020, just a day before the new Ignis was unveiled.
