Gets 4WD as an option.
Following is a video of the Suzuki Ignis which made its premiere at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show last month.

The Ignis measures 3,700 mm in length, 1,660 mm in width, and 1,595 mm in height. The display car was powered by a 1.25-liter DualJet engine, paired to a CVT and a 4WD system. It also featured the SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) start-stop system and brake energy recuperation for increased fuel economy.
Billed as Suzuki’s entry into the compact crossover market, the Ignis takes its design inspiration from the concept iM-4 which made its premiere at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. The interior design also marks a departure for Suzuki, with a free-standing touchscreen display, a three-spoke multifunctional steering wheel, and a new layout for the automatic climate control system.
Based on the Ignis, Suzuki also displayed the rugged Ignis Trail Concept, with larger wheels, contrasting colors and a different color scheme for the interior.
Sources say that the Ignis is on Maruti’s radar for a launch around 2017. In the Indian market, the Ignis will be positioned a step below Maruti’s forthcoming ‘YBA’ sub-4 meter SUV.
