May be yes!

As we have already seen in the case of Brezza, Maruti did focus on customization options. There is a high probability that customizations would be made available for the Indian market too.

The link says 4th quarter of the Fiscal year. So that means Jan-Mar 2017 right?

Fresh spy video of the Ignis doing the testing rounds in Delhi/NCR, courtesy WhatCarBuyer India.

Gives a good glimpse at the size and compact dimensions of the mini-crossover.

Is it just me or does the Ignis look identical to the swift (till the B pillar) when viewed from the side profile ?

Yup that's Maruti IGNIS almost close to launch date as Maruti is doing a good run on Gurgaon Roads as well.

Car proportions are for sure awkward. Suzuki choosing practicality over form factor can a learn lot from their Japanese brothers Honda.

Nope not an iota of doubt i hate the design

Spoke to Nexa SA yesterday, based on him

1. Ignis will be launched through Nexa
2. Launch on 26-28 Oct
3. Price range 4-7 lakhs

Though he seemed quite confident I took all these with pinch of salt.

Suzuki Ignis at the Paris Auto show, expect the Indian version to be in similar lines. There will be a number of personalisation options available on the Ignis, such as a different colored roof.

Sale of Ignis in Europe will start in January 2017 ( could be a date for the India launch too)

Quote:
the Ignis will be offered with both two and four-wheel drive, in line with its SUV-esque styling. Four-wheel drive will be an option, however. It should add around 1500 (1.32 Lakhs, INR)to the price of the car if it follows the same pricing strategy as the current Swift

Quote:
European-spec car will be longer than its Japanese counterpart, which adheres to Japan’s strict 3.6m guidelines. The UK car will be 10-15cm longer, although the floorplan will be unchanged. Revised bumper designs will likely swallow up the added length
Quote:
The engine line-up for the Ignis is as yet unconfirmed, with the exception of the 1.2-litre Dualjet engine, as used in the Baleno and Swift. A hybrid Ignis is expected, but not confirmed; the SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) will be used if a hybrid powertrain does make it into the Ignis.
Quote:
the Baleno weighs 905kg, and Suzuki confirmed that the Ignis will weigh around the same

Has it got 50-50 split rear seats? Is this setup not uncomfortable for the rear center passenger?

Forget being a mini-SUV? It's not even a mini-SUV-ish. Just a big hatch. Front is stunning but go to side and back and it's a different story altogether. Being Maruti, it will definitely sell but they have got to do something about that 80s taillamps. The all wheel drive in such a small car is a big thing though. A first, I guess, for any make.

Couldn't agree more.

I seriously think that it's All-New Wagon R and like i10 which is a Santro but sold side by side same may happen with Ignis.

Mind you Wagon R was positioned as MAV Multi Activity Vehicle.

Not exactly...

The humble 800 which was known as Alto in other markets and even the SS80 came in 4 wheel drive versions.
