The Ignis measures 3,700 mm long, 1,660 mm in wide, 1,595 mm in high, has a 2,435 mm long wheelbase and a 180 mm high ground clearance.

The Ignis made its Indian debut at the Auto Expo 2016, previewing a sub-4m crossover. It looks largely identical to the Suzuki Ignis sold in Japan, but will feature chrome-accentuated grille, slight design tweaks and roof rails.

The India-spec Maruti Ignis is likely to be powered by the 1.2-liter K12B engine with VVT or a 1.3-liter DDiS engine equipped with Suzuki’s SHVS mild hybrid tech. A 5-speed manual will be standard in both models, while a CVT could be exclusive for the petrol variant.
