Maruti Suzuki India on Wednesday launched the 2019 edition of its hatchback Ignis with updated safety features which is priced between Rs 4.79-7.14 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
The all-new refreshed Ignis is now equipped with co-driver seat belt reminder and high-speed alert system along with reverse parking assist system as standard features across all variants, Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) said in a statement. Now, even the roof rails come as standard, however, the automakers will continue to offer the same Smartplay infotainment system, which means it will not come with the recently released SmartPlay Studio in Wagon R and facelifted Baleno.
Under new safety regulations, these features will become mandatory for all passenger vehicles manufactured from July 1 this year.
Already, the earlier version of the model comes equipped with dual front airbags, ABS (anti-lock braking system) and EBD (electronic brakeforce distribution), seat belt pretensioners with force limiters and ISOFIX child seat restraint system, as standard fitments, it added.
Under the hood, it remains same and comes with the 1.2-litre petrol engine which produce 83 bhp of power and 113 Nm of torque. The engine is mated with a 5-speed manual and automatic transmission.
“Taking passenger safety to next level, we have loaded Ignis with more safety features. These will be offered as standard across all variants,” MSI Senior Executive Director (Marketing and Sales) R S Kalsi said.
He further said the Zeta and Alpha variants of the model are now offered with new roof rails to enhance its design and give it a strong road presence.
Maruti Suzuki Ignis is in directly competition with Mahindra KUV100 NXT and Ford Freestyle.
