Maruti Ignis And Baleno To Come Up With A New Shade Of Blue
Matching up to the funky image of Maruti Ignis, Maruti Suzuki India has decided to soon give it a new exterior colour to wear which will be named Nexa Blue and will be replacing Urban Blue, which has been the most advertised colour tone for the Ignis earlier. Currently, the Urban Blue colour is sported for all the variants of the Ignis except the base Sigma so it is expected that the same will happen for the new shade as well. The production of Maruti Ignis with the Urban Blue colour has been stopped and the new lot of the Ignis will be ofeering the Nexa Blue exterior colour, as per the sources.
The same is going to happen to Urban Blue shade on the Maruti Suzuki Baleno and it will also be updated with the Nexa Blue soon, according to the information from the sources. The prime differentiator with the Nexa Blue is that it has a tint of purple that enhances the appearance of both the cars at night. The Maruti Suzuki Ignis that can be seen here is an Alpha variant since it is heavily loaded with a chrome front grille, LED daylight running lamps and projector headlamps, along with the 10-spoke, blacked-out alloy wheels amplifying the looks of the car to make it worth a second glance.
As of now, the Maruti Suzuki Ignis is offered in a total of six single-tone colour options, i.e., Glistening Grey, Tinsel Blue, Pearl Arctic White, Silky Silver, Uptown Red and the Urban Blue, which is going to be replaced by Nexa blue. Though the base variant of the Ignis is available only in the Silky Silver and Pearl White exterior shades, the Zeta and Delta variants are offered in all six color choices. The top Alpha variant does not have the Glistening Grey colour. The Maruti Ignis also offers three dual-tone colour combinations, but is available only in the Zeta and Alpha variants with the one being Uptown Red and Tinsel Blue with Midnight Black Roof & the other is Tinsel Blue with Pearl Arctic White roof.
The Maruti Ignis, which was launched in 2017, is offered in four variants - Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha. The powertrain options for the Ignis include the 1.2-litre K-Series petrol churning out 83PS and 113Nm torque and the 1.3-litre DDiS190 engine producing 75PS and 190Nm torque. Both the engines are offered with mating option of 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT. The highlights of the car include 15-inch alloy wheels and 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system (with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Navigation) along with automatic climate control among others. The Maruti Ignis goes up primarily against the likes of Mahindra KUV100, Hyundai Grand i10, and its own older sibling -- the Maruti Suzuki Swift.
Maruti Suzuki presents a long list of personalization options for the Ignis owners in order to help the car stand out in a sea of cars. The only other car in the same price segment with personalization options is its own sibling, the newly launched Maruti Suzuki Swift 2018. A price hike of up to 2 per cent across its model line-up starting January, 2018 has been made public by Maruti Suzuki, which will result in the price hike of the Ignis.
Maruti Suzuki has also come up with the AGS variants of the Ignis Alpha priced at Rs 7.01 lakh (petrol) and Rs 8.08 lakh (diesel), ex-showroom Delhi. This variant is in addition to the automatic options already available in the ongoing Delta and Zeta trims.
The Maruti Ignis has a starting price of Rs 4.59 Lakh ex-showroom (Delhi ) and gets a long list of features for the price. Having the funky design lines on the outside with the new colour addition will surely help Maruti to make the small hatchback stand out among its competitors.
