The top end Alpha trim comes fully loaded with features such as 7-inch SmartPlay touchscreen AVN, automatic climate control, LED projector headlamps, LED DRLs, puddle lamp, and driver seat height adjustment. At the time of its launch in January this year, Maruti had stated that Alpha will get the 5-speed AMT if there is customer demand.
Powering the Ignis is a 1.2 L K12 Petrol and a 1.3 L DDiS Diesel engine. The former produces 61 kW and 113 Nm while the latter has a power and torque output of 55.2 kW and 190 Nm respectively.

R.S Kalsi, Senior Executive Director (Marketing & Sales), MSIL said:
Automatic Gear Shift (AGS) on the IGNIS, so far offered in the Delta and Zeta trims, has been widely appreciated by customers and accounts for 27 per cent of IGNIS sales. We are now offering AGS in the top trim as well – IGNIS Alpha. We expect this to strengthen brand IGNIS and enhance the popularity of AGS amongst millennials.
