Maruti will be launching the new Ignis on January 13. The vehicle is targeted towards the younger generation of India, millennials who are born post 1980 since India has the highest youth population. The Ignis will be sold through the NEXA range of dealerships because the company feels that the younger generation aspires for a premium experience.
The Maruti Ignis will be India’s first premium urban compact hatchback. The design has unique proportions and the C-pillar has a distinctive design. The car is designed in such a way that it is compact on the outside and still has enough space inside. The sculpted body comes with flared wheel arches. The hatchback gets 175/65/15 tyres with glossy black alloy wheels. The body also comes with side cladding which adds to the car’s character.

The exterior body colour accents are carried over to the door pads and centre console. The Ignis will also come with an ISOFIX restraint system as standard.
