Maruti Suzuki launched its all new compact crossover, the Ignis in Delhi for a price tag starting at INR 4.59 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The event also featured the performance of Swedish DJ Axwell at the launch of the model aimed at the millennials.
Before we get to the variant wise price list, let me tell you a few details of the Ignis, starting with its history. Introduced to the world as the iM-4 compact crossover, the model made its debut at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. Following its world debut, the Ignis was showcased in India for the first time at the 2016 Auto Expo as a concept.
Maruti Suzuki started testing the Ignis on Indian roads soon after and the compact crossover was spotted on various occasions across the country. In December 2016, the model was listed on the Nexa experience website, hinting that a launch was not far away.
Dimension wise, the Ignis measures 3700mm in length, 1690 mm in width and 1595mm in height while the wheelbase is rated at 2435mm. The ground clearance of the model stands at 180mm. Coming to the design, the Ignis features a chrome bordered grille flanked by projector headlamps with integrated U-shaped LED DRLs on either side. The Ignis, unlike most vehicles in the segment, receives a clamshell bonnet.
On either side, the Ignis receives 15 inch gloss black alloy wheels, a blacked-out A-pillar and B-pillar and the C-pillar with a design inspired by the first generation Cervo. At the rear, the compact cross-over receives a two-piece conventional tail light setup while the rear bumper comes with a giant black insert.
Moving on to the interiors, the Ignis receives a dual tone dashboard, metallic accents on the floor console, 7 inch freestanding touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink, engine start-stop button and a multi-function three spoke steering wheel.
