The company has made substantial cosmetic updates to the micro-SUV which also includes several new features. It flaunts a new square-shaped front grille which has been borrowed from the S-Presso. The grille also gets chrome inserts to make it appear even more premium. The micro-SUV also boasts of restyled bumpers with faux scuff plates at the front as well as the rear. The side profile is majorly retained from the preceding model with blackened B-pillar and ORVMs with integrated indicators. It rides on new alloy wheels now.
Maruti Ignis facelift is equipped with dual front airbags, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), rear parking sensors, seat-belt reminder system and speed alert as standard safety features. The Ignis facelift 2020 draws power from the BS6 compliant 1.2L 4-cylinder petrol engine which also does duties it the Swift and DZire. It develops a maximum power output of 82bhp at 6000rpm and peak torque of 113Nm at 4000rpm. The engine is linked to a 5-speed manual transmission as standard while an optional AMT gearbox is also on offer with all the variants, except the entry-level Sigma variant.
