Maruti Suzuki is India’s largest car manufacturer in India. They have a variety of products in their lineup. Maruti Suzuki sells their product via two separate chains of dealerships. Models like Alto, Brezza, Ertiga, Swift are all sold via Arena dealerships. Models like Ignis, Ciaz, S-Cross are considered to be the premium offerings and they are sold via Nexa dealerships. The Ignis is an entry-level model sold through Nexa dealers and it is one of those hatchbacks that has a very unique design and attracts a bunch of enthusiasts. We have seen several modified examples of Maruti Ignis hatchbacks in the past and here is one by Eimor Customs and Chequered Flag.
Eimor Customs is a well-known name among motorcyclists. They have modified several Royal Enfield motorcycles in the past. Unlike many other Maruti Suzuki Ignis that we have seen in the past, this one keeps it simple and does not gets anything extreme including lowered suspension.
Designing done by EIMOR
The folks at Eimor customs have done the concept, design and paint job of this Maruti Ignis while all the hardware upgrades were done by the Chequered Flag. Starting with the front, the grille on this small hatchback remains the same but, it has now been painted in Tinsel Blue shade. The hatchback looks like a lower-trim version as it misses out on features like projector headlamps and LED DRLs. This is also a pre-facelift model and not the version launched last year at the Auto Expo.
Suzuki logo in the middle of the grille has been retained but, black slats on either side of the logo get Red accents. Similar Red accents are seen on the bonnet as well. The Tinsel Blue coloured garnish is seen around the fog lamp as well. Other than this, no major modifications have been done to the front end.
Coming to the side profile, Eimor has installed an Ignis Racing sticker on the side fender and the main modification one would notice here are the wheels. The company fitted steel rims have been replaced for aftermarket alloy wheels. It is fitted with a 15-inch gloss black Oz racing alloy wheel. It seems like the theme for inch this Maruti Ignis was to make it look like a rally car and Eimor Customs nailed it with the dual-tone paint job and racing stripes.
The front end on this Maruti Ignis has a silver paint job and as it moves towards the rear, the shade changes to Tinsel Blue. Both these colours are available with Ignis from the factory. There is a grey and a Red strip between these colours. Unlike other cars that we have seen in the past, Eimor has not wrapped the car. They have carefully painted the car to get the desired look. The roof has been completely blacked out. Images of the interiors are not available in this post but, from what we can see, the front seats have been replaced with custom leather-wrapped racing bucket seats.
Upgrades by Chequered flag
Modifications made to this Ignis is not just cosmetic. Coming to the performance upgrades, this Ignis gets a Stage 1 remap which increases the power and torque output of the stock engine. Apart from Stage 1 remap, it also gets the full SS exhaust system, a new air filter has also been installed for better intake. They have also done damping and installed an aftermarket sound system has also been installed with an amplifier.
