2020 Maruti Suzuki Ignis facelift is now available for sale with prices starting Rs. 4.89 lakh for the Sigma variant with a manual and going up to Rs. 7.2 lakh for the Alpha variant with 5-speed AMT automatic transmission. These prices are up by about Rs. 6,000 compared to the last year’s ex-showroom list.
This year, the new 2020 Ignis facelift gets a restyled front and rear end. The face now includes u-shaped grille, similar to the S-Presso. The other change is related to the colour options. The red and tinsel blue (light blue) colour options are no longer available. Instead, we have a different shade of light blue (turquoise blue) and orange replacing them. Dual-tone colours are available for an additional sum of Rs. 13,000.
Since its introduction in January 2017, the Ignis hasn’t just lost a couple of colour options. It lost its diesel engine and diesel + AMT automatic combination, and ISOFIX child seat anchors. Perhaps, not enough Ignis buyers bought a ~30,000-rupee child seat.
The Ignis comes with a 1.2-litre petrol engine. It makes 83PS of power at 6000rpm and 113Nm of torque at 4200rpm. This engine is available with a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT automatic transmission. As before, the AMT automatic transmission is only available in the top 3 variants - Delta, Zeta and Alpha.

Claimed Fuel Efficiency
In terms of dimensions, the new Ignis remains unchanged. Because of its tall-boy design, it offers great leg and headroom even for tall passengers. Previous-generation WagonR owners looking for a car with comparable headroom can consider the Ignis. Additionally, it offers an SUV-like 180mm ground clearance. The dimensions of the 2020 Maruti Suzuki Ignis remain unchanged.

The 2020 Maruti Suzuki Ignis top variant comes with the following features:
7-inch pop-out style touchscreen infotainment system
Android Auto and Apple Carplay smartphone connectivity
LED projector headlamps
Electrically-adjustable and foldable outside mirrors
Keyless entry with push-button start/stop
While the top variant has attractive interior and exterior design elements like LED DRLs, LED projector headlamps, airplane-style auto AC toggle switches and floating touchscreen, the lower variants get none of that. So, the Sigma, Delta and Zeta variants look barely palatable from the outside without the LED elements. From the inside, they look downright ugly as the dashboard is designed to look best with the automatic AC toggles and pop-out touchscreen. Unfortunately, even the updated 2020 Ignis model reserves all of those features for the Alpha variant.
