  • The Ignis will be launched in India on 13th January 2017
  • The Ignis is based on the same platform as the Baleno
  • We will be driving the new Ignis soon after its launch in the country

The Maruti Suzuki Ignis was originally expected to be launched in the 2016 calendar year, however, the company had to push the launch of its subcompact crossover to early next year due to overwhelming demand for existing products. Nevertheless, Maruti Suzuki has finally launched the car in India. In fact, the carmaker recently showcased the production version of Ignis at a special event in India. Bookings for the Ignis has also opened and customers car now book the car for a token amount of ₹ 11,000.
 


Showcased in India at the 2016 Auto Expo, the Ignis is the third Maruti Suzuki product to be sold via Nexa dealerships after the S-Cross and Baleno. The Nexa website has already listed the model as 'upcoming', without divulging anything about specifications. In fact, the car was even recently spotted at what appears to be a dealership service station. That said, the new Maruti Suzuki Ignis is expected to draw power from the 1.2-litre K-Series petrol and 1.3-litre DDiS diesel engine options, while paired to a 5-speed manual and an automatic transmission. The model could also bring a lot of firsts in the segment.

The Ignis first made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show last year as the iM4 Compact SUV Concept and was appreciated for its smart design and the retro-inspired boxy profile. We were in fact wondering if this one was the successor to the Wagon R. The crossover gets a smart looking front profile with the wide grille and imposing bumper, while the squared headlamps with LED DRLs and projector lights are particularly sporty. The side profile stands tall courtesy of the angular styling, and the rear gets a raked windscreen. Adding the muscular stance are the accentuated wheel arches.

The Maruti Suzuki Ignis will also sport a completely new interior. Instead of reaching for existing spares from its parts bin, the Indian automaker will instead introduce a more premium cabin on the crossover with new controls, switches, knobs, steering wheel, instrument cluster, seats and much more. There will also be a touchscreen infotainment system that will come equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Expect to see the driver side airbag as standard on all models. We've already given you a detailed report about the variants on offer. More recently, the Euro-spec version of the model received 3 stars in the Euro NCAP crash test results.

The main feature will be the AMT in both the petrol and diesel and that's where the Ignis will capture the attention of buyers. In terms of pricing, the Ignis is expected to undercut the Baleno by a healthy margin and will be the new entry-level model for the Nexa dealer base with prices expect to start around ₹ 5.5 lakh (ex-showroom).

So, will the Ignis become the next success story from Maruti Suzuki? The big question bothers us as well and we will be bringing you all the answers once we drive the car soon after its launch. Make sure you to keep watching this space.
