- The Maruti Suzuki Ignis is all set to launch on 13th January 2017
- Bookings for the car have already opened in India
- The Ignis will be available with an AMT in both petrol and diesel
The company had already said that the waiting period for the car will be up to 8 weeks depending on the variant and that certainly speaks a lot about the demand for the car in India. We've already taken a look at how the car looks and given you an understanding of what the design is all about as also the cabin in our first look review. It was this month itself that the company started taking bookings for the car and from what we hear the response has been quite good. While we wait for Maruti Suzuki to give us the numbers on the bookings front, we think that people are certainly looking at the Ignis as a successor to the Wagon R, which is a car that is still doing phenomenally well for the company.

We've provided you with a whole bunch of details on what we know about the car already and have compiled a list of 10 things to know as well. The Ignis is the second car to be built on the Baleno platform. The Ignis, just like the Baleno will get both petrol and a diesel engine. The petrol engine will be the same 1.2 litre 4-cylinder K12 enigne that does duty in the Baleno and the Swift. The diesel on the other hand is the 1.3 litre DDiS engine that again does duty in like likes of the Swift, Baleno and Ciaz. Both the engines will get a 5-speed manual gearbox. Maruti Suzuki has been very clever in announcing that an AMT will be provided on both the petrol and diesel variants and that means that it'll be the first car to come with an AMT from the Nexa dealership network.
The AMT will be available on select variants and we've given you a lowdown on what that will be like. From what we know, the Ignis will undercut the Baleno in terms of pricing and will be the most affordable option available through the Nexa dealerships. It will be interesting to see how Maruti Suzuki places this one in its line-up as the new Swift is due and so is the Wagon R. Considering that the Ignis will sink its teeth into the sales of the Celerio, Swift and maybe even the Baleno, Maruti Suzuki's strategy is a bit hard to decipher. We await the launch of the car though to know more about this.
