    Is The Sigma Variant Of 2020 Maruti Suzuki Ignis Petrol Worth Buying?

    The most affordable variant of Ignis petrol is the Sigma and it costs Rs. 4.89 lakh. It gets the following noteworthy features:

    • Mandatory safety kit (2 airbags, ABS, parking sensors)
    • Tilt steering
    • Front power windows
    • Body-coloured bumpers, door handles and outside mirrors

    This is a very basic variant but it’s a good option for you even if you have the budget to get the Delta variant. That’s because the Delta variant is quite expensive and it doesn’t get enough features to justify the price jump. Notable omissions for the Sigma variant are:

    • Day/night inside mirror
    • Rear power windows
    • Music system
    • Power mirrors
    • Steering-mounted controls
    • Rear parcel tray
    • Remote central locking

    While these are important upgrades, we’d suggest you consider getting these from the aftermarket as the Delta variant is overpriced.

    Is The Delta Variant Of 2020 Maruti Suzuki Ignis Petrol Worth Buying?

    The Delta manual variant is almost Rs. 78,000 more expensive than the Sigma. This trim is also available with an AMT automatic transmission, which costs Rs. 6.14 lakh. It’s another Rs. 47,000 more expensive than the Delta manual.

    Notable additional features of the Delta variant over the Sigma are:

    • Day/night inside mirror
    • Power mirrors
    • Music system with steering controls
    • Rear power windows
    • Split rear seatback
    • Rear parcel tray

    • Plastic cladding on doors
    • Remote central locking
    • Adjustable rear headrests

    Most of these features have become must-have for a car in this class. However, the additional features don’t even come close to justifying the price jump. If you want the Ignis petrol with the manual transmission, then consider getting the Sigma variant and adding selective features from the aftermarket. If you can stretch your budget, then get the Zeta variant, which is a much better value than the Delta.

    If you want the Ignis with the automatic transmission, then, unfortunately, Delta is the most affordable option. Fortunately, the Zeta is not that much expensive and it also justifies the price jump over the base Sigma variant. So, consider getting the Zeta instead.

    Is The Zeta Variant Of 2020 Maruti Suzuki Ignis Petrol Worth Buying?

    The Zeta variant of the Ignis costs Rs. 5.89 lakh with the manual and Rs. 6.36 lakh with the automatic transmission. This price is Rs. 22,500 more expensive than the Delta variant.

    For this reasonable price hike, you get the following additional features:

    • 2 extra full-range speakers 2 tweeters
    • Keyless entry with push-button start/stop
    • Alloy wheels
    • Rear washer and wiper
    • Rear defogger
    • Front fog lamps
    • Power folding mirrors

    The list of additional features looks small but a set of alloy wheels is a big-ticket item. This variant totally justifies the price jump of Rs. 1.0 lakh over the Sigma variant and is the most value-for-money option. Even with the automatic transmission, the Zeta is the best option in terms of value for money.

    Is The Alpha Variant Of 2020 Maruti Suzuki Ignis Petrol Worth Buying?

    The Alpha variant costs Rs. 6.73 lakh with manual transmission and Rs. 7.2 lakh with the automatic. This variant of the Ignis is Rs. 83,500 more expensive than the Zeta variant. For the additional sum, you get the following notable features:

    • Parking camera
    • 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple Carplay
    • LED DRLs
    • LED projector headlamps
    • Height-adjustable driver seat
    • Automatic AC

    The Alpha variant, with and without the automatic transmission, is straight-up a bad value considering the asking price and its additional features. The only thing going in the Alpha variant’s favour is style. The inclusion of LED DRLs, LED projector headlamps, automatic AC and touchscreen infotainment complete the internal and external looks and complement the Ignis’ funky styling. Especially on the inside, the manual AC knobs and the non-touch music system look out of place in the Delta and Zeta variants.

    If you’re buying the Ignis mainly for its funky looks and don’t mind spending for it, we’d recommend you get the Zeta variant, which offers the best value-for-money.

    Which Variant Of The 2020 Maruti Suzuki Ignis Petrol Offers The Most Value For Money?

    Zeta is the most value-for-money variant of the 2020 Maruti Suzuki Ignis petrol.

    The base variant of the Ignis is a good value-for-money option. Besides the Suzuki’s refined, frugal and peppy, 1.2-litre petrol engine, it also gives you the SUV-like ground clearance, 15-inch wheels and funky styling. We’d suggest you set aside some Rs. 25,000 for accessorising the Sigma variant and add the most desirable features instead of spending on the higher variant.

    The Delta and the Alpha variants are overpriced and are low on our recommendation list. The Zeta is the only other variant that balances the additional features with the incremental increase in the asking price. The Alpha completes the Ignis’ funky looks inside and outside, but it’s overpriced and therefore you should only buy it if you don’t mind paying for that style.

    What Are The Engine Specifications Of The 2020 Maruti Suzuki Ignis Petrol?

    The Ignis uses the very popular 1.2-litre 4-cylinder K12 petrol engine. This engine is known for its refinement, reliability, high fuel efficiency and peppy nature.  The power and torque figures in this segment are comparable. The only engine that stands out here is the 1.0-litre turbo petrol of the Grand i10 Nios, which makes 100PS of power and 172Nm of torque. The only shortcoming with this engine is that it’s not available with any kind of automatic transmission. Otherwise, all the cars in this category are available with an AMT automatic transmission.

    In terms of fuel efficiency, it’s right up there with the Swift lagging by only 0.3kmpl.
