The model has also been spotted on quite a few occasions during its public road tests in India as well as abroad.

Although unconfirmed, the India-spec Ignis will draw power from a 1.2-litre VTVT petrol engine while a Fiat sourced Multijet diesel could be offered later in its life cycle. Transmission duties would be taken care of by a five speed manual transmission as standard while an Automatic Gear Shift (AGS) could also be available as an option. Once launched, the Ignis will rival the Mahindra KUV100 and the upcoming Datsun Go-Cross.
