Sorry for a completely off-topic post, but could not contain my sarcasm. Instead of buying the Ignis Diesel Alpha, put some more and get the entry-level Hexa.

What pricing.

Awesome prices! May be those who sell one kidney to buy an iPhone can sell the other to buy an Ignis!

30K higher than expected IMO. It does have some segment first features but the Alpha variants seem to be a little over-optimistic in pricing. But that makes the rest of the versions look bare bones especially in the ICE department.

Good thing that Maruti has acknowledged error in pricing earlier and we might see a little reduction in pricing a year down if all other costs are stable.

And again good thing they didn't get the AWD model. Would have jacked up the prices to Himalayan levels.

Highly irresponsible statement by Kalsi -- Correct

This statement will drive away prospective buyers. --A bit of an over-reaction.

Does anyone decide to buy/not buy a car based on some random comments made by big shot guys! There are going to be hundreds of factors which will keep the prospective buyers away. MSIL unfortunately made Pricing as the top factor. That's all!

Definitely overpriced @RavenAvi. I agree.

Zeta Diesel AMT, onroad price in Bangalore will be around ₹9,05,000/-.

And Alpha Diesel will cost around ₹9,47,000/-

I guess, there maybe another shocker from Maruti, by raising the prices of Baleno & Brezza to make IGNIS look cheaper.

AGS or AMT was introduced in Celario at a premium of ₹25K, but now the Cheaper Automatic has gone up to ₹55K. Either Maruti is milking the cow or exploiting the customer's preference. In both the cases, it's destroying the choice of the Customer.

Still expected to do well on strength of badge it wears.
I second that. Figo diesel looks super VFM now. Sadly, Ford is not able to translate into good sales. I do not know if Maruti badge would help here. Maruti cars have been successful due to right pricing always.

Sad to see the way prices are bound northward! If Hyundai demands a premium, it's because of the quality of interiors, even if they skip on features. Ignis variants except Alpha looks downright ugly and I don't see any reason to go for a lower variant.

I'd rather put a 50K additional and buy a Baleno than this car. May be, that's why Maruti priced it this way. This almost tells me that even the Swift wouldn't be a worthy buy since it'll be slotted between the Ignis & Baleno.

9L for a mediocre interior quality product with a lame AMT and 10L for a small car! Money has no value now I guess!

PS : Can't stop comparing. I paid 5.2L (ex showroom) for my Swift VDi ABS in 2008 and the Ignis Zeta retails at 6.9L (considering both are topend-1 variants). What makes them charge the 1.7L extra for the Ignis? That's a 30% hike on the Swift's price.

Default Day Light Robbery!

When i heard Nexa, i was like - oh oh..

When i saw the specs it was - darn!

When i heard the price i am ROLLING ON THE FLOOR LAUGHING MY GUTS OUT!

Come on Maruti what were you thinking? Who is going to pay 8 to 9 lakhs on road and that too for a automated manual transmission (not even a proper cvt or such). And you are still bullish about being introductory price?!

Will it sell? definitely it will! but how long is the question? At this price point the yuppies will run out of money soon and then it will become yet another product in Nexa gathering dust like the previous launches.

I think as a product it is a better version of celerio, a modern gen z approach. Now if it had come with features like turbo multijet, AWD, Regenerative power plant, Radar then one would have blindly gone and paid 10L since the technology demands that money. In indian avataar only thing one can call as technology is LED headlights and the media connect, both conveniently omitted for AMT.

Thank you Maruti but no! i am dropping the plan to buy this product. Rather go with those amazing used deal for a Polo TSi and have a grin on my face!

I actually see this car as a replacement of and kind of next generation if Ritz. And going by that, it's definitely overpriced. Moreover, no AMT for top variants, and I know this car is not for me anyway.

7.8 lac ex showroom Delhi for Alpha diesel, and 6.91 for Zeta diesel.

This translates to:
7.8 + 0.624 + 0.30 = 8.724 on road Gurgaon

For a lesser amount, I got a VW Polo D Highline after the discounts.

Petrol Zeta is 5.75
This translates to:
5.75 + 0.345 + 0.20 = 6.295 on road Gurgaon

For hardly 20k extra, I got a Polo 1.2 P Comfortline.

IMO, this is absurd pricing for an absurd looking car

Someone plese tell me i am wrong.

Ignis Diesel Alpha 7.8 lakhs ex showroom(Delhi)
Ciaz VDI SHVS Diesel 7.73 lakhs ex showroom (Delhi)



What has gone into Maruti?

If I get a 5 seater, segment best spacious, most fuel efficient among all Indian diesels, a full size C2 sedan that is more powerful and with a 510 liter boot for the same price(cheaper actually), why on earth will I buy a wagon r with make up?

We all thought Ignis will be a rich man's Ritz/Wagon R but Maruti priced it thinking it's a poor man's MINI
Here "introductory prices" simply mean they will increase it if Ignis sells in good numbers, even with this kind of steep pricing. I have a feeling it will be a hit, reason being we go crazy for anything that looks SUVish, gives 26kmpl mileage and its a Maruti. Though I would love to be proved wrong.

Getting a feeling that maybe this time when the "introductory pricing" timeline fades out, the "post - introductory pricing" will actually come down?

I badly wanted to have a compact diesel auto for daily chores of Delhi Traffic. And MS has just crashed my dream of owning the diesel Zeta AMT. No way I am gonna pay 8.6 big ones for an adidas show box without a driver's seat height adjuster.
Poor show, MS.

Well, this price tag is a shocker. Jazz CVT and Polo TSi look VFM in comparison!! Never imagined i would say this.
