Production-spec Suzuki iM-4 to be called Suzuki “Ignis” – Report

Posted on: Aug 28, 2015 - 9:29pm IST

It could be the successor to the sub-compact Suzuki Ignis discontinued in 2006.

According to a Suzuki fan page on Instagram, the production-spec Suzuki iM-4 will be called the Suzuki Ignis. They have also posted a render of the production-spec model, which looks nearly identical to the iM-4 concept model.

It’s unclear if it will be sold in India as the Maruti Ignis, as Maruti is already working on another sub-4m SUV (codenamed YBA), which draws heavy influence from the Maruti XA Alpha Concept from the 2012 Auto Expo.

If Suzuki christens the production-spec iM-4 as the Suzuki Ignis, it will serve as the successor to the sub-compact Suzuki Ignis which was sold in Europe, Australia and most parts of Asia, before it got discontinued in 2006.

The production-spec model is likely to pack a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder Boosterjet engine (which will debut in the Suzuki Baleno hatchback) and the Euro-spec Suzuki Swift’s 1.2-litre Dualjet engine. A diesel option could also be offered, which could source power from the 1.3-liter DDiS diesel engine.

    This product if lands in India could score high in the compact suv segement relating with maruthi’s service back up and loyalty. It has the right proportions to make it a hit in today’s Indian compact Suv scenario if priced right with good engine options.
