    Maruti Suzuki Ignis: updated safety features, colours

    The Ignis, which lacked safety features like ESP and Hill-Hold Assist, now gets it as standard across all four trims – Sigma, Delta, Zeta, Alpha. Other standard safety features include dual airbags, ABS, and ISOFIX child anchorages.

    The hatchback is available in six monotone and two dual-tone colour options. The monotone colours include Turquoise Blue, Lucent Orange, Nexa Blue, Glistening Grey, Silky Silver, and Pearl Arctic White. Its dual-tone paint options, which cost a premium of Rs 14,000 over the standard paint, include Nexa Blue (Black, Grey Roof) and Lucent Orange with a Black roof.

    Maruti Suzuki Ignis: RDE-compliant petrol engine, new prices

    Mechanically, there is no change to the Ignis, and that means it continues to be powered by the 83hp, 1.2-litre petrol engine that’s paired to either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT gearbox. However, Maruti has updated this engine to meet the upcoming RDE regulations. The brand also claims that the Ignis’ petrol powertrain offers a fuel efficiency of 20.89kpl.

    All variants of the Ignis have received a uniform hike of Rs 27,000. Overall, the Ignis manual now costs between Rs 5.82 lakh-7.59 lakh, while the automatic's price ranges between Rs 6.91-8.14 lakh. Here is the variant-wise price break-up of the Ignis:
