A starting price of 5L is highly unlikely considering its size and features, and the starting price of Baleno and Swift. It should sit below both, and should start around 4.5L, imo.

An aggressive pricing will

i. fetch a lot of customers from its own and other manufacturers' models
ii. fill the gap of Ritz perfectly
iii. ensure Maruti that the declining sales of Swift owing to its new 2017 model launch won't affect much
iv. provide enough space for the upward pricing of the new Swift, and
v. provide space for the petrol Brezza.

I fail to understand what is Maruti Suzuki trying to do with the Ignis? I once again see the list of k-12 and 1.3L multijet in various variants under the Nexa brand. There is no news of the all-wheel drive version.

Instead, they should just give the Wagon-R a facelift and maybe plonk those two engines in the waggie. It will still sell.

At 3.7 metres long, it’s slightly bigger than a Hyundai i10, but with its cutesy front end, narrow upper body, angled roofline and chunky wheelarches, it’s one of the most distinctive small cars around. Love it or hate it – we happen to be in the former camp – but there’s no denying that the Ignis has a real personality that only a handful of rivals can replicate.
Quote:
The inside of the car is a little more conventional, but it’s more upmarket than the stark surroundings of Suzuki’s other city car offering, the Celerio. Brightening things up is the two-tone finish for the dashboard and doors, while neat touches such as the glossy body-colour door pulls, tablet-style touchscreen and separate console for the climate controls give the Ignis’s cabin some character.
Quote:
You sit fairly upright in the Ignis, and the cabin is narrow, but there’s a surprising amount of leg and headroom throughout. That’s thanks to both the short dashboard and the two individual sliding and reclining rear seats that are offered on mid-spec SZ-T models and above. The Suzuki serves up more space than many city car competitors, and four adults would be comfortable enough on longer journeys.
Quote:
the Ignis is fun to drive in town, thanks to the compact dimensions and good visibility. It’s a bit of a mixed bag once you get out on to the open road, however. On the one hand, the car feels nimble and the ride is cushioned and controlled at speed, but big bumps at low speeds can unsettle it, and wind, engine and road noise are all more evident

The space is impressive, and given the Ignis’s light weight – it tips the scales at 810kg in its lightest form, depending on the spec you choose – it feels eager and agile on the road. All models get Suzuki’s willing 1.2-litre Dualjet four-cylinder petrol engine with 89bhp, but you can also add the 48-Volt SHVS mild hybrid system, as tested here.

Autocar too reviews the Ignis, in UK. Seems a well packaged car with pleasing interiors and a great city ride!

The Maruti-Suzuki Ignis-capture.jpg

Quote:
A power output of 89bhp may sound modest, but the Ignis doesn't really want for more, even in the heavier Allgrip model.
The engine that has no issue with being pushed, and Suzuki's five-speed manual gearbox is precise enough to make the whole driving experience rather enjoyable
Quote:
its steering is rather slow, vague off-centre and inconsistently weighted, while there's pronounced body roll in corners. Nevertheless, the Ignis's light weight and short wheelbase at least help it to feel agile, and it has plenty of grip on the road. Off it, the Allgrip technology is designed to help the Ignis cross muddy fields rather than traverse mountain ranges, but the fact that hill descent control features at this price point is impressive.
Quote:
The soft set-up translates to a largely comfortable ride, with the Ignis's front MacPherson strut and rear torsion beam suspension providing a pleasantly controlled long-wave cushion over dips and crests, albeit tinged with a fidgety secondary ride beneath it at town speeds. Up the pace and you needn't travel far down a lumpy back road before the little Suzuki's dampers run out of travel, but given the car's price tag, the ride is undoubtedly cultured enough beside its established competition.
Quote:
The Ignis is competent on the road rather than outstanding, then, but inside things are much more impressive. For starters, the Ignis will seat four adults in complete comfort - and we're talking knees free from backrests and heads well clear of the ceiling here.

Ignis scores 5/5 in Euro NCAP in Safety Pack, Standard equipment gets 3/5.
With safety pack, score is good. The A-pillar stays intact in crash test, quite well built for its weight. Hope we get similar quality in India unlike Swift where the score was 3/5 with 2 airbags and cabin didn't remain intact unlike EU counterpart.

Two images from crash test.

I don't see why Suzuki will do anything different from what they have done so far. Trust the Indian variants to be made for India and hence the ignis would be if similar quality levels as the swift and no better. Actually I would be surprised if the quality levels were any higher than the swift. Even the Brezza feels so close to the swift in terms of build quality and everything and that costs 10 lakhs so how can 5-6 lakh Ignis be any different?

The Ignis seems to be a premium city runabout. From the latest pictures, it looks shorter and narrower than the Ritz. which was more or less similar to the gen one Swift in size. From what I can gather from the pictures, I wouldn't pick this over the upcoming Swift as long as I intend to go on highway rides. Seems perfect for the city though. Loads of styling with seemingly upmarket interiors.

Ignis (3700*1660mm) is smaller than current swift (3850*1695mm), ritz (3775*1690mm) and even first gen swift (3750*1690mm)

After review of the AWD+ Hybrid, Auto Express reviews the standard Ignis 2WD.

The Maruti-Suzuki Ignis-exteriorfront3_4driving4.jpg

Recommends the 2WD variant as the pick of the lot.
Quote:
Elsewhere, the Ignis is better in a couple of crucial ways in a more basic spec. Firstly, the handling and ride are a touch sweeter – the little Suzuki feels like it’s been set-up to be as light as possible, and the ride is a bit less busy as a result.

Ditching the rear driven wheels and the hybrid’s power system brings the weight of the Ignis down from a hardly portly 920kg to a seriously impressive 855kg. Given that the car is no less powerful on paper, it’s a surprise to see that Suzuki is quoting a 0-62mph time of 13.5 seconds, around two seconds down on the 4x4 hybrid. That’s despite it having a higher top speed.
Don’t be swayed by that figure, however, as despite lacking the hybrid’s punch low down in the rev range, the 2WD Ignis feels similarly perky once you rev it out
