The car appears to have the tall-boy like stance and has styling elements, like flared wheel arches, a steeply raked rear portion and a healthy amount of ground clearance. It also gets projector headlamps with integrated LED DRLs, a mean looking grille and a heavy looking front bumper.
Other specifications that are known as of now about Maruti Suzuki Ignis:
- The Ignis will come with the regular engine options of a 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.3-litre diesel engines, which are already on offer on company’s other hatchbacks as well.
- There will be a 5-speed manual and the option of a CVT along with the petrol motor on offer.
The car will replace the now discontinued Maruti Suzuki Ritz.
The car, along with the Baleno and the S-Cross, will be the third offering of the company to be sold through its premium NEXA chain of outlets. The company has already sold around 1 lac units of the Baleno hatchbacks through these outlets and is consistently increasing the number of these showrooms.
