Maruti Suzuki has unveiled the new IGNIS at the Auto Expo- The Motor Show 2020. The new IGNIS exudes an SUV design with imposing front fascia, wide and tough rear appearance and high seating position. The new IGNIS is powered by a 1.2 litre BS6 compliant petrol engine.

Speaking at the launch, Kenichi Ayukawa, MD & CEO, Maruti Suzuki India Limited said, “IGNIS enjoys a special place in the Maruti Suzuki NEXA portfolio and has been appreciated for its peppy drivability and spacious interiors. We have recognized an increasing preference for feature-loaded cars that have SUV-like high seating position and dominant road presence. We are confident that the all-new IGNIS with its SUV design and spacious interiors will appeal to the customers.”

The new IGNIS is offered with two new colors in addition to the existing color palette. Lucent Orange and Turquoise Blue adds to its modern and vibrant character.


The unique design of the new IGNIS has been strengthened by incorporating SUV design elements. The new front grille with a U-shaped motif and bold skid plate detailing on bumpers gives it a stable stance. High seating position, rear fascia with tough and wide appearance, coupled with roof rails and spoiler enhances its SUV character.


The spacious cabin comes with a dual tone ivory interior and a new modern pattern for seat fabric. The linear design of the dashboard provides a wider feel to the cabin. Aligning with signature NEXA blue color, a blue highlight adorns the center console. The new IGNIS comes with a 17.78cm SmartPlay studio. The new infotainment system can be connected to the cloud, and offers features like live traffic, voice recognition, driver safety alerts, and vehicle information.

Engine and Transmission

The new IGNIS comes with a BS6 compliant 1.2-litre VVT Petrol engine. The new IGNIS is available with manual and Auto gear shift transmission options. The Auto gear shift provides a comfortable and seamless driving experience and saves from the hassle of switching between gears without compromising on fuel efficiency. 


The new IGNIS offers two premium customization options - Acropolis and Scorcher theme. In addition to these customization options, the new IGNIS comes with three new dual-tone options. Nexa Blue with Black, Lucent Orange with black roof and Nexa blue with silver roof.
