The Ignis is the first in its segment to feature a diesel-automatic engine-gearbox combination

So after driving the car for about 2500 kms, this is what I feel. The Maruti Ignis is a very good package and while it doesn’t pack in the kind of space that the Baleno has, I feel this is made for a different target audience. It is quite peppy to drive, extremely fuel efficient, looks cool (subjective) and is loaded to the brim with features. While I reckon Maruti has been a bit optimistic with its pricing, I think the Ignis makes sense for people who want a compact runabout that is inexpensive to run and doesn’t disappoint on the equipment front.

The Ignis is aimed towards the millennial, goes hand in hand with the ‘None of a Kind’ tagline

What’s Cool

* Compact footprint
* Grabs eyeballs in a jiffy
* Funky design
* Feature-loaded interior
* Umpteen customisation options

What’s Not So Cool

* Poor rear seat comfort
* Turbo lag in the low end

Slightly fatter rubber would have made the ride quality better
