India-bound Maruti (Suzuki) Ignis showcased at 2016 Bogota Auto Show
I’m the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!
Will launch in India in early 2017.
The India-bound Maruti (Suzuki) Ignis was displayed at the 2016 Bogota Auto Show held earlier this month. Here are the live images of the car from the Colombian auto show from our reader Sebastian Altamar.
The Maruti (Suzuki) Ignis, the company’s new crossover-styled hatchback, is the production version of the Suzuki iM-4 concept introduced at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. It’s based on the highly successful Baleno‘s lightweight new generation platform. The Euro-spec Ignis measures 3,700 mm in length, 1,660-1,690 mm in width and 1,595 mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,435 mm.
The Ignis can be ordered in Europe with the K12C 1.2-litre DUALJET four-cylinder petrol engine with or without the SHVS mild-hybrid system. This engine produces 66 kW (88.47 hp) at 6,000 rpm and 120 Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm and sends power to the wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission or a 5-speed automated manual transmission. The Indian-spec version is likely to be offered with the K12B 1.2-litre petrol engine and a 1.3-litre diesel engine. SHVS could be available, but a four-wheel drive system will not be.
LED headlamps, touchscreen infotainment system with navigation and Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink, sliding rear seat, Dual Camera Brake Support (DCBS) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) are some of the key features of the European Ignis.
