Just weeks after the 2020 Suzuki Ignis' official images leaked online, the 2020 Maruti Ignis has been spied completely undisguised in India. It looks like the facelifted model is on its way to dealerships now.

The 2020 Maruti Ignis will be launched with the BS-VI compliant version of the K12M 1.2-litre petrol engine.

In May 2019, after nearly two and a half years since its launch, the Maruti Ignis managed to clock 1 lakh sales. The facelift should help popularise the car and boost its sales.

The Maruti Ignis features a refreshed front fascia with a new radiator grille with U-shaped inserts inspired by that of the outgoing Maruti Vitara Brezza now. Apart from that, the front bumper has been redesigned and now features a silver lip treatment. The round fog lamps have been given vertical housing. Coming over to the rear, the bumper has been tweaked and it carries a faux silver skid plate and vertical fog lamps or reflectors now.

Inside, the SmartPlay infotainment system is expected to make way for the SmartPlay Studio infotainment system. Moreover, the use of new upholstery and interior colour scheme is certain.

The 2020 Maruti Ignis will employ the BS-VI K12M 1.2-litre petrol engine that delivers 61 kW (82.94 PS) at 6,000 rpm and 113 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm. 5-speed manual and 5-speed automated manual will be the transmission options. The BS-IV engine returns a fuel economy of 20.89 km/l.
