Maruti revealed the updated Ignis at Auto Expo 2020. But how unique is it truly from the active model? Let’s find to out

The Ignis, Nexa's most affordable offering, got a long-past due update at Auto Expo 2020. Yet, is it any unique to the present model which is set to be pulled off the shelf soon?


The greatest change lies at the front. The front fascia has been redesigned and now features another grille with U-formed components like the S-Presso. There's likewise another chrome surround for the LED headlamps and the grille. The bumper design has additionally been changed and the fog lamp housing is currently completed in dark rather than aluminum on the outgoing model. The updated bumper currently includes an extreme looking artificial slip plate that was absent beforehand. The side profile stays pretty much the equivalent, with the rooftop rails and alloy wheels being conveyed forward from the pre-facelift model.

There are similar changes at the back as well. The huge black component that was already present in the bumper is no more. Rather, it has been replaced by a faux skid plate that primates the one on the front. Both these components give the Ignis an extreme urban-worker sort of vibe. The spoiler, which was offered as an optional extra, is presently standard on the top-spec model.

Maruti is likewise offering two new shading choices on the facelifted Ignis - Recent Orange and Turquoise Blue. There are three double tone paint choices accessible also.


The interior is basically equivalent to previously. There are no color changes or highlight expansion fundamentally, aside from the way that the seats currently include new pattern on them. The touchscreen at the center of the dashboard was a 7-inch unit previously and the size continues as before. However, Maruti has updated it to the latest SmartPlay Studio system which we originally observed on the WagonR.


Maruti had recently discontinued diesel variations of the Ignis because of poor demand and the rest of the petroleum variations were at that point accessible with a BS6 consistent engine. Along these lines, with this facelift, nothing has been changed precisely.

The 1.2-liter engine keeps on making a similar 83PS and 113Nm as in the past and will be accessible with a 5-speed manual or an AMT.


Bookings for the Ignis facelift are now in progress at Maruti's NEXA showrooms or online. We expect Maruti to launch the updated hatchback in the coming days.


Maruti has made no component additions and the sole petroleum engine that is on offer was at that point BS6 compliant, so we don't anticipate any huge climb in the Ignis' costs. For reference, the active Ignis is priced between Rs 4.83 lakh and Rs 7.13 lakh (ex-showroom India).

Revised Front Fascia

Major design changes have been made to its front fascia. The 2020 Maruti Suzuki Ignis facelift includes a newly-designed grille that seems to be like the S-Presso smaller than usual SUV. The front and back guards have likewise been updated along with the faux scuff plate. The carmaker is additionally offered two customization choices – Scorcher and Acropolis. The all-new 2019 Maruti Suzuki Ignis grows dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and seat belt pre-tensioners with force limiters as normal across all variants. Ignis also sees all the compliance standards with regards to pedestrian protection, full frontal impact and frontal offset impact and side impact.

New Colors

The new Ignis facelift gets two new color schemes – Turquoise Blue and Lucent Orange. Moreover, there are three new double tone hues – Nexa Blue with Silver, Nexa Blue with Black and Lucent Orange with Black.

In addition to the minor cosmetic changes, the new Ignis will get improved protection features like a speed alert system and seatbelt reminder for the front passenger.
