New Maruti Suzuki has showcased its Ignis hatchback at the Auto Expo 2020. Bookings are open and prices will be revealed in the next 2-3 weeks.
For 2020, the Ignis gets a new exterior design. Changes include new U-shaped grille elements, which borrow inspiration from the S-Presso. There’s also a fake silver skid plate on the front and rear of the car to give it the SUV design appeal.
Here are the latest prices of the 2019 Maruti Suzuki Ignis:
For the updated 2020 Ignis, expect a price increase of about Rs. 10,000 - 15,000 for the lower and middle variants. The top variant may receive a nominal price increase as it’s already overpriced.
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.

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.
2020 Maruti Suzuki Ignis Dimensions
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 looks attractive with features 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.
It’s available in 6 colours namely, orange, turquoise blue, dark blue, grey, silver and white. Red and a tinsel blue colour options are no longer available. There are also 3 dual-tone colour options - orange with black roof, Nexa blue with black roof and Nexa blue with a white roof.
The Maruti Ignis competes with hatchbacks like Tata Tiago, Ford Figo and Hyundai Grand i10 Nios.
