Maruti Suzuki Ignis, the compact crossover, which will hit the Nexa floors of the company in the next couple of days, is expected to get a price tag starting at around Rs 5.5 lakh. The soon-to-be-launched model has already started reaching the premium dealerships Nexa of the company and is also open for bookings. Interestingly, the Ignis, which has already become a hit in India even before its launch, commands a waiting period of up to three months.

The Ignis will be offered in both petrol and diesel engine options. While the 1.2-litre petrol engine of the Ignis is expected to churn out a power output of 84bhp and 115Nm, the 1.3-litre diesel mill is expected to give 74bhp of power and 190Nm peak torque. Both the engines will be mated to a five-speed manual transmission. An automated manual transmission (AMT) will be offered in the petrol Delta and Zeta variants.

The Ignis boasts a boxy design and is expected to host a number of goodies being a premium car from the house of Maruti Suzuki, the country's largest carmaker. The Ignis will be available in both monotone and dual-tone paint shades like the Vitara Brezza and will be offered in four variants — Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha.
