From the pics above, I am shocked to realise that the speedo console is very similar(boring) to lesser Marutis(Celerio) except for that digital door ajar warning display, and the AC knobs look downright cheap and ugly. Definitely does not belong in a car that costs 9.6 lakhs OTR (Alpha diesel).

Those cheap and ugly AC knobs stop at Delta and thankfully are not part of Alpha.

Having said that, they do not go well even with Zeta that I saw this afternoon. Hope soon to see a change here.

The Alpha was not on display but IMHO, the protruding HU with conventional controls in lower variants too is sort of eyesore. What was the need to fake a tab.

To give credit where it is due, the interiors otherwise seem well put together and comparable to Baleno.

No offence meant to prospective owners.

IMHO, this is one of the most ugliest looking car in recent times. I don't know what happened to Maruti. Also it is really surprising that this car is being sold from Nexa, which is supposed to be premium. This car is least premium IMO.

The tail lights seems to be something between a terrano and an scross

The "TAB" is a deal breaker. Couldnt they have used all of that space? Even the AC knobs are just horrible. I feel maruti could have done a way way better job with this and personally I find this to be the ugliest car they have come up with so far (excluding the yet to be launched scross facelift). Dont intend to offend anyone, but as a personal opinion it looks hideous to a certain extent. Anyway, being a Maruti this too will sell well.

IMHO, Ignis at times seems like maruti tried to pull off a Brio with increased ground clearance (albeit cheaper automatic transmission), catered to a similar demographic.

Notice how the Ignis follows a similar quirky design language, especially the polarizing rear and layout design of AC knobs and ICE.

Looking at it in flesh, my opinion has changed upside down. It is still ugly, but now the exterior seems much better than the interiors! Much like drawing a bigger line next to a line to make it look smaller.

Exterior design flaw I can live with, for most part I would be inside the car, driving. Downright ugly interiors (zeta), with white dashboard parts (In India? really?).

Hello All,

I have visited the NEXA showroom at ORR, Mahadevapura at Bangalore on Sunday to have a look at IGNIS and it was jam packed. The showroom was offering juice and bottled water to the customers. This is my first visit to NEXA and boy it looked I was entering a corporate company. All the sales executive were well dressed and gracious.

PROS:
1) Front looks very promising and mini-SUV type
2) Side also looks fantastic
3) Interior quality is also good.

CONS:
1) Diesel variant is expensive
2) Rear looks little weird and it might grow like RITZ

I have made a short video of my visit. Please excuse me for the amateur video shoot as I am still in learning stage.

In my opinion, it looks very Fiat Panda'ish. Probably they started off copying the Panda, but ended up looking at Discovery Channel for some inspiration for the rear so that they can stand out from the crowd. Of course, these were the guys that gave us that insect-like A-star. When the A-star can do reasonable numbers, Ignis will be a volume blockbuster for sure. When Ritz was launched, I remember how me and my colleagues reacted looking at the rear (that, "oh, how ugly" feeling) - that's a blockbuster as well.

Well, who am I to comment on its looks. Maruti knows their buyers really really well.

I can see diesel is much overpriced and car does not feel premium for the money its asking ,but boy its Maruti so there will be still many takers for this , otherwise i20 is better option considering its beautiful engine .

Dont understand why aren't we getting any first drive report from anywhere? Has the media drive event not happened? Looks like no one has got the chance to drive it yet.

For those of you who are wondering how the base Sigma interiors will look like, here is a screenshot from the official site. Seems like you can't get rid of that floating tablet design after all.

The car has scored a pretty average 3 stars in Euro NCAP even with all the safety features built in such as low speed collision avoidance camera. For a brand new car which has gone on sale just now, to me this is downright embarassing and concering. Somehow I will not be comfortable putting my family in this car given the past record of Maruti when it comes to safety. Here is the video from Youtube

I have a feeling that the reason TD are not being reported anywhere in India for this car is probably that Looking at the low response (which MSIL must've anticipated) they planned to offer TD only after media TD is conducted.
Probably after media reviews the opinion of buyers will change.

Just my thought otherwise makes no sense to not offer TD
