Maruti Suzuki unveiled the new Ignis facelift at 2020 Auto Expo. The new Ignis will be launched in the market very soon and the manufacturer has already released a TVC for the car. It is the first-ever official TVC of the Ignis facelift and here are the details.
In the new TVC, Maruti Suzuki describes the car as the new Urban Compact SUV. While the Indian version of the Ignis does not gets the AllGrip AWD system, it is the design and looks of the vehicle that makes it heavily inspired by an SUV. The new Ignis has also received a slew of design changes that makes it much more intimidating and adds a better road presence to the vehicle.
The facelifted version of the Maruti Suzuki Ignis only receives cosmetic updates. These cosmetic updates include a new grille, which is inspired by the Vitara Brezza. Also, the fog lamp housings, bumpers and the air dam of the vehicle have been revised to add the muscular look. Overall, the Maruti Suzuki Ignis looks fresh and offers a mid-cycle update that will keep it going for a few more years in the market. The Ignis showcased at the Auto Expo also receives newly designed alloy wheels, which ensures that the vehicle gets a new look on the side. Also, the black-out A-Pillar further makes the premium hatchback look slightly different from the previous version.
On the inside, Maruti Suzuki has kept all the features similar to the current version of the Ignis. However, a new Smart Play infotainment system with Android Auto and Android Auto has been added to the top-end variants. The Ignis will continue to offer the dual-tone paint schemes and there are two new colours available with the car – Lucent Orange and Turquoise Blue. Also, the customised iCreate options will continue to be available with the new Ignis as well. Customers will be able to customise their vehicles online through the configurator or opt for accessories at the dealerships while buying the vehicle.
Maruti Suzuki launched the BS6 compliant Ignis last year and the same drivetrain will continue to power the upcoming version of the car. There is no change in the 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine powering the Ignis. It continues to offer 82 Bhp of maximum power and 113 Nm of peak torque. The car will be available with an optional 5-speed AMT automatic transmission while the 5-speed manual transmission will be standard. It will take on the likes of Tata Tiago, Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS, Ford Figo and more.
