- Quirky Looks: The Maruti Suzuki Ignis is a bit quirky but the car certainly stands apart compared to the other hatchbacks in the segment. And we think that's a good thing. The car also comes with a single unit design that houses the four-slot grille and the larger headlamps with projector likes and U-shaped LED DRLs. It also gets faux silver skid plates, black alloys, LED taillamps, roof rails and flared wheel arches.
- Vibrant Body colours: The Ignis is offered in a wide array of colours which include six single-tone colours, including Lucent Orange and Turquoise Blue, which were introduced with the facelifted model. The company also offers three dual-tone colour options with the Zeta and Alfa variants.
- Ease Of Driving: The profile of the Maruti Suzuki Ignis is quite simple and straight which comes to its advantage while driving in city traffic conditions of parking in tight spots.
- Safety: The Maruti Suzuki Ignis has a 3-star safety rating from Global NCAP. In terms of safety features, Maruti offers ISOFIX seats, seatbelt pre-tensioners, dual airbags, ABS with EBD as standard. The top-spec Alpha models also get a reverse parking camera with guiding lines.
- Peppy Engine: Under the hood, the Maruti Suzuki Ignis gets the BS6 compliant 1.2-litre, four-cylinder VVT petrol engine from the Swift and Baleno that develops 82 bhp and 113 Nm of peak torque and is mated to a five-speed manual transmission while the AMT gearbox is optional. The engine is quite peppy to drive.
- Dated Cabin: On the inside, the Ignis looks dated compared to its rivals. It gets a dual-tone black and light beige interior with decent fit and finish, along with fabric upholstery. The car features a touchscreen screen with SmartPlay Studio 2.0 infotainment system featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also comes with auto climate control, a multi-function steering wheel, electrically operable ORVMs, and more.
- No Diesel Engine: Maruti Suzuki discontinued diesel engines post the BS6 transition. Even the Maruti Suzuki Ignis is offered only with the petrol engine option.
- AMT Gearbox: The Maruti Suzuki Ignis is equipped with the AMT automatic gearbox which is not the most responsive of gearboxes when it comes to performance. But then, even its rivals are offered with the AMT gearbox only.
