Already on sale in Japan, the Suzuki Ignis measures 3,700 mm long, 1,660 mm wide, 1,595 mm in height, has a 2,435 mm long wheelbase, and a 180 mm high ground clearance. It’s powered by a 1.25-liter four-cylinder K12C DualJet petrol engine paired to an SHVS mild-hybrid system, producing 91 PS and 118 Nm of torque. The only transmission option is a CVT, while an AWD system is available.

The India-spec Maruti Ignis will have the same dimensions, but with different engine options. Likely offerings include a smaller 1.2-liter K12B engine with VVT or a 1.3-liter DDiS diesel engine equipped with Suzuki’s SHVS mild hybrid tech. A 5-speed manual will be standard, while AGS technology could be offered for the petrol variant.
