10 Reasons why I picked up the Maruti Suzuki Ignis

I am really very happy with the purchase. Ignis is one car which is very underrated. It does many things well over others and provides you best value for money for sure.

BHPian aniketi recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Ignis is one of the best car available in the today's costly car market. I was in same boat last year and after considering many cars, I finally got Ignis Zeta AGS in same color (Glistering grey). I am really very happy with the purchase. Ignis is one car which is very underrated. It does many things well over others and provides you best value for money for sure. Ignis is very easy for city drive and feels very planted. Highway manners are surprisingly very good for a car of its size, handling is just perfect and tight.

My purchasing price was only 7.92 Lakhs OTR in Pune for Zeta Automatic including exchange bonus. This price includes extended warranty as well for 5 years. Plus I got 10 K accessories free from dealer. I think in current scenario this is the best deal one can get. Points I like about Ignis -

  1. 1.2 Liter 4 cylinder K series engine is a gem. It's easily the best in the market.
  2. It gives very good average, superior engine compared to other manufacturer's. Proper 4 cylinder engine with great NVH.
  3. Good ground clearance - 180 mm is more than sufficient in most of the cases.
  4. Good features for the price you pay. Zeta variant has true Keyless entry (2 remote keys), Black sporty alloy wheels, Spoiler, functional Roof rails, Infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple Car play with 6 speakers, Steering mounted controls, Electrically operated adjustable and foldable mirrors, fog lamps, rear wiper with washer too & few more. Nobody is offering all these features within 8 lakhs OTR (Currently good discounts are going on)
  5. Funky SUV type styling, I quite like it. This has unique design and easily standout.
  6. Not very common on roads, you get uniqueness. It doesn't carry budget car badge for sure like Alto, Wagon R, Celerio, Tiago, etc.
  7. Suspension is little stiff but not bad at all.
  8. Good space inside. One will get surprised seeing space it offers inside. Boot space is also very good at 260 Liters.
  9. AMT is nice, less jerky. It's slow to start but gain pick up soon.
  10. On highways, AMT is surprisingly fast. 

Overall I am very happy and satisfied with what I got for the price. I can say this is a pocket rocket for people having tight budget. Also Maruti gives you best A.S.S. and peace of mind which is very important.
