Default Re: The Maruti-Suzuki Ignis

Booked the Silky Silver Zeta AGS petrol for my dad (It will replace the 1st gen Swift Vxi 2009 Petrol : 1.3L petrol engine)

However after looking at the Red & Black in Autocar Article I may switch color option.

I found the Silver inserts in the grille more prominent with the red.

I'm still thinking how will the 2-Din audio look in the Zeta Variant. Also will there be an option to upgrade to the Touch Audio with Apple Car play & Android Auto

Haven't seen any spyshots or images of lower seg models with the 2 Din Audio

While booking a diesel automatic, the RM wrote Ignis 1.1L, and said the automatic diesel is 1.1L and manual is 1L. I think he was not fully awake, because there is no suzuki 1.1L diesel AFAIK.

This is quite interesting.
A GC increase of 6.5mm will make the already tall 180mm GC, even taller.
I think the 195/60/R15 (if it fits without issues) will make the car look wider and beefier.


Another interesting piece of info I gathered from various UK reviews of the Ignis is that the car is sold with R16 rims wheels there.
So upsizing the R15's shouldn't be a major concern.

First two would be the best choices and i will go with the 195 size, which will give you better cushioning on our indian roads. Then again we have to wait and see how the indian car is sprung, if its too soft then higher profile may not be good.

On a road car i would never recommend an offroad tyre, will spoil the handling, braking and ride. Just not worth it.

I feel Maruti has provided appropriately sized default tires for the Ignis. Honda goes with the 175/65 R15 for the Honda City itself. Given that scenario, the same is definitely good enough for the Ignis.

There were no seat belts in the rear at all! Rear seat belts started coming in that segment from around 2005 or so. Even the Santro prior to the Xing model had no rear seat belts, if I remember right.

I think rear seat belts were added in the WagonR from the time they removed the reclining feature of the rear seats.

175 section tyres on Honda City is a joke. In my opinion, 195 section would still be a conservative choice for the Honda, considering the size, speed, and, the payload capacity of the car. 205 should be more like it.

Ignis, especially the 1.3 ddis, should be plenty fast, in capable hands, and I would count on nothing less than 185 section for grip. Although, I would prefer 195 section S-Drives or P3STs​, as I do with my Swift diesel. Will look good as well.

In Uk prices of suzuki cars are as follows

Celerio-6999
Ignis-9999
Swift-11459
Baleno-12599

Ignis priced close to swift. My guess base variant 4.4 lks.

Other than the looks, there is no compelling reason to upsize in Ignis. And City is adequately tyred for Indian driving conditions. There has never been a report of dangerous handling characteristics or loss of stability of a City due to narrow tyres, within legal speeds. Even Narain Karthikeyan didnt complain about the lack of grip from the tyres of the City during Autocar track test. It is just that people prefer the looks of a wider tyre, and that is it.

Isn't the UK model much more loaded to demand that premium and be closer to Swift?

Here it should be closer to celerio, IMHO.

That just looks ugly, in my opinion. Waiting to see more pics on it to have a better taste probably. If not, I am going for the touchscreen.
It's very disappointing to see automatic climate control only on the alpha variant. It should have been at zeta atleast.

The knobs look similar to the current generation Maruti cars.

I wish, the same, but the bosses have already spoken, and I was scared to hell how the interiors of delta would be. . Attached base variant from page 4 of this thread
