Maruti Ignis Facelift walkaround review [Video]

Maruti Suzuki has unveiled the facelifted version of the Ignis hatchback at the Auto Expo this year. Ignis is the entry level offering from Maruti’s Nexa dealerships. Maruti had also recently announced the price of the facelifted Maruti Ignis and it is now Rs 6,000 more expensive than the pre-facelift version. The price for the updated Maruti Ignis now starts at Rs 4.89 lakh, ex-showroom. Ignis Facelift has already begun reaching the dealerships across the country and here we have three videos that give an overview of the exterior and interior of the Ignis’s Sigma, Zeta and Alpha trim.

All the video have been uploaded by Automobile Repair & Knowledge on their youtube channel and the video starts by showing the exterior of the facelifted Ignis. Front fascia of the car gets cosmetic changes like a new grille with U shaped chrome inserts in them.

Design of the foglamp housing has also changed and the faux skid plate is also added to give it an SUV stance. On the higher variants, it gets LED DRLs and a projector type headlamp units. Lower variants gets conventional headlight setup with no fog lamp.

Moving to the side profile of the car, Ignis gets a glossy black 15 inch alloy wheel and the lower trims gets steel wheel. Apart from that the side profile remains unchanged with a boxy design to generate more space on the inside and a roof rail in the higher trims.

Like at the front, rear of the car has also gone through some changes like the skid plate and the new bumper with inverted ‘D’ shaped reflector on both ends. Everything else remains the same as that of the pre-facelift version.

On the inside nothing has changed at all, it still gets the touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto on higher variants and no infotainment system for the base trim. Other major change that has been done to the facelifted Ignis is that the 1.2 litre petrol engine that produces 83 PS and 113 Nm of torque is now BS6 compliant. Maruti has also introduced two new colours for the Ignis – one is Lucent Orange and the other is Turquoise Blue.
