At first glance, Maruti Suzuki Ignis looks like a smaller sister of Vitara Brezza. Is it is a perfect hatchback? Let us find out in this detailed review.
Ignis is a funky hatchback that looks ready for the city drive. The Ignis was first presented at Auto Expo 2016 and was launched in early 2017 by Maruti Suzuki. The petrol and diesel engine options were initially offered. However, Maruti Suzuki does not, as you all know, bet on any diesel policy in the BS6 era, so now only a petrol option is provided. The new Ignis Facelift was shown at the 2020 Auto Expo by Maruti Suzuki. The new Ignis BS6 was also launched in India some time back.
In this detailed review of the new Maruti Suzuki Ignis BS6 review, we will have a look at the key aspects related to this car like the interior, exterior, engine options, and other relevant details.
The Maruti Ignis, as already mentioned, is sweet looking, but robust. It's more like a mini-crossover than an SUV, but its aesthetic appeal is really good. A revised frontal fascia is provided by the new facial model. Now a four-slate grill with a Suzuki logo between the pieces and delicate chrome inserts is provided.
The grille is flanked by headlights and also receives big LED DRLs in U shape. The new front and back bumpers with squash plates and body covering have been revised with the new facelift Ignis. Based on the above information, we can conclude that this car has a very enticing exterior which makes it a very good looking car.
The side profile of the car contains a multiple speed alloy wheel of 14-inch, and it also has roof rails. At the back, it gets an integrated body with roof mounting and a few minor changes.
