Spotting Ignis is pretty much standard affair in Gurgaon now. Saw one just yesterday in Old gurgaon. By the camouflaged looks, it doesn't look good. My take.

There is too much metal in the rear, but it looks good in white. Wonder what will happen to the KUV100 once this launches in India.

I don't like the Ignis, especially the Side & Rear. This will sell, Styling won't be a deal breaker for many.

If it has Good Interiors, Features, Decent Boot, Spacious Cabin, these are enough to entice buyers. Other bits like Fuel Efficiency, Aftersales won't matter much because Maruti already is at the Top on those departments.

What I wish though is a 1.3 Multijet in either 75/90 BHP output depending on weight of the car. But Strictly not that ordinary 800cc engine (I know Maruti won't offer it, but going by thier "Best in Class" FE tag in mind), they might change their mind.

I am keen on the Ignis CVT provided it is priced well, also Black would be better to hide all that bulk.

My brother came across this news regarding Ignis, the India bound Ignis was showcased at Bogota Auto Show.

http://indianautosblog.com/2016/11/m...to-show-248523

I also had an opportunity to speak to the owner of Maruti dealership here, and as per him, Ignis will be launched in early January with deliveries starting in February. Baleno RS might come with launch in March followed by deliveries in April.

saw a camouflaged Ignis yesterday in Gurgaon and must say, it looked quite underwhelming. It was shod with puny tyres (165s at best) with high sidewalls, and in terms of size didn't look much bigger than a wagon r- definitely smaller than the ritz.

Yes. The dimensions of this car, as given by various car sites are comparable to KUV100, and thus, is smaller than the Ritz/Swift or other B2 segment cars.
This car is planned to target the masses who are looking for SUVish looks in a small car, something like the Kwid or the KUV100. With love it or hate it looks instead of regular neutral Maruti looks, if it manages to capture attention of enough public, then with Maruti's sales network reach, it means the end of KUV100.

Ahead of it's January 2017 launch, Motor Trend has scooped up the variants of the Maruti-Suzuki Ignis.

There will be four variants on offer - Sigma, Delta, Zeta & Alpha.

Quote:
Sigma
This will be the base variant of Ignis which will come standard with all around black cladding, body colored bumpers, ORVMs and door handles, power steering, A.C, internally adjustable ORVMs, central locking, front adjustable headrests and accessory socket. The Ignis will come standard with antitheft system, ABS with EBD, Dual front airbags, seat belt pretensioner.

Delta
Second is the Delta variant which will additionally get rear power windows, electrically adjustable and foldable side indicators with ORVMs, remote locking, wheel covers, 2-Din audio system with Bluetooth connectivity and steering mounted controls, reverse parking sensors, de-fogger and metal finished inside door handles.

Zeta
This will be a very decently equipped variant which will get auto climate control, telescopic adjustable steering wheel, follow me home headlamps, push button start/stop, height adjustable driver seat, alloy wheels, front fog lamps, Auto dimming IRVM, rear wiper-washer, MID and leather wrapped steering wheel in addition to the features available in Delta variant.

Alpha
This is top off the line variant which along with all the features of Zeta variant gets auto projector headlamps with day time running LED lamps, apple car play with navigation system and rear parking camera.
Engine choices will be limited to a 1.2L K-series engine with 83BHP & 115Nm, and a 1.3L DDiS diesel with 74BHP & 190Nm of torque. All variants will have a 5-speed manual transmission as standard, with the top 2 trims of both engine types mated to AMT transmissions.

A few reports indicate the 1.0L boosterjet too will be offered in Ignis for India ( Car advice too reported the same for the Australian market.)

OR - They might offer 2 petrol variants with boostejet in the top most AT variant!

FE reports the same,

The new Boosterjet petrol engine will develop around 110 hp of power and likely to be paired to a five-speed manual unit. There are speculations on an automatic gearbox to be available for this engine option,

While the features for the variants are almost the same as the corresponding variants of Baleno, the Delta variant seems to be missing the Automatic Climate control and rear wiper.

I hope Maruti does not carry forward this change to the Baleno as well.

While a 50k price difference between Ignis and Baleno will make them appear from different price segments, there will not be significant difference in EMI terms. In this case the Ignis will to Baleno like what Ritz was to the Swift.
