Rumour: Maruti Suzuki Ignis diesel variants discontinued


According to a media report, Maruti Suzuki will no longer offer the Ignis with a diesel engine. The diesel variants have reportedly been axed due to a lack of demand. Maruti is currently selling more than 4,000 units of the Ignis on an average every month. 90% of the cars sold are petrol variants.

The diesel variants of the Ignis get a 1.3-litre, 4-cylinder engine that is offered on various other Maruti models. This engine develops 74 BHP @ 4,000 rpm and 190 Nm of torque @ 2,000 rpm and comes paired with either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT. 

If these reports are true, the Ignis will only be available with a 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine which develops 82 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 113 Nm of torque @ 4,200 rpm. It also comes fitted with a 5-speed manual gearbox, while a 5-speed AMT is offered as an option.
