Maruti Suzuki Ignis, first unveiled at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, was slated to be launched in India during the festive season this year. However, heavy number of Vitara Brezza and Baleno on the production line pushed the launch of the sub-4 compact crossover to next year.
Ignis will now be launched sometime between January - March 2017. Compared to its counterparts sold in Japan, Ignis is likely to be slightly different in terms of styling and a bit short on features. Maruti plan to sell the Ignis only through Nexa dealerships.
With a tall height, large wheel arches and a distinctive front and rear end, the Ignis could compete against others of its kind in the Indian market.
