Will launch in both petrol and diesel variants.

According to a new report from Financial Express, the Maruti Ignis will arrive in showrooms during this Diwali, thus adhering to their initial plan of introducing it during the festive season. This contradicts several other reports stating that Maruti had delayed the launch in order to reduce the backlog of orders for the Maruti Vitara Brezza and Maruti Baleno.
