Ignis also gets ABS and EBD as standard, whereas the driver and co-passenger airbag option varies with the base variants. The interiors of the Ignis look classy and spacious with prim and proper dashboard and superior upholstery. The font has bucket seats as usual but what makes Ignis unique are the adjustable split rear seats for comfortable seating position alongside three levels of boot capacity. Total boot space offered when all the seats are positioned back and upright is 133-litres, which can be further expanded to 258-litres and 415-litres by folding the rear seats.
Talking about the dimensions, the Ignis is 3700mm long, 1660mm wide and 1595mm tall. Adopting the characteristic SUV trait, it has a wheelbase of 2435mm alongside 180mm off the ground clearance. Maruti Suzuki Ignis is undoubtedly tall having well-defined exterior features and jaunty character line. Coming to the technical specifications, Ignis offers a single engine option having the SHVS mild hybrid technology developed by the company. The petrol engine can derive power output of 89.75bhp max; 3bhp can be further churned out by its electric motor. The transmission option is standard across all variants and is coupled with a CVT gearbox and has a 2WD drive-train.
In order to bring down the production cost, Ignis when launched in India might not be available with most of these features. Maruti Suzuki Ignis on its arrival in the Indian market will be seen locking horns with the recently launched Mahindra KUV100.
