Over 50% Of Maruti Ignis Bookings For The Delta Variant
Maruti Ignis is, undoubtedly, one of the major launches of the year from the Indo-Japanese carmaker. Maruti Suzuki sold over 10,000 units of the Ignis since its launch in mid-January 2017 as pre-orders for the vehicle continue to pour in. Interestingly, the range-topping Delta grade is high-in-demand with over 50% orders, followed by the Zeta grade. On contrary to the market demand, it’s the entry-level Sigma variant that commands the longest waiting period of up to three months. The Delta, Zeta and Alpha trims have a waiting period of four to eight weeks. Over 50% Of Maruti Ignis Bookings For The Delta Variant.
Described as a funky, fun vehicle aimed at youth, Maruti Ignis is essentially a sub-four meter vehicle with crossover like styling. With attributes like good performance, great mileage and importantly a feature-packed cabin, the Ignis continues to rake up bookings and generating volume for the carmaker in India. Now the pricing part is a bit tricky, while on one hand where the Ignis range gets ABS with EBD and dual airbags as standard, on the other hand the vital connectivity & comfort features are provided on the higher trims in the line-up. Considering this, the base variant launched at an introductory price of Rs 4.59 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) works well to deflect buyers from rivals, but the fully loaded top-spec diesel manual variant costs substantially high at Rs 7.80 lakh.
Well, when we say the car has to offer quite a lot contemplating the segment it belongs to, we mean some really good features like the LED projector headlamps with DRLs, puddle lamps, Maruti’s SmartPlay infotainment system with navigation, voice recognition, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Mirror Link Connectivity etc. Though, the aforementioned features are available only on the top-spec Alpha variant.
Mechanically, it identifies with most of the other Marutis with 1.2-litre unit powering the petrol Ignis and 1.3-litre oil burner used for diesel trims. Not to forget the AMT gearbox comes as an option on select variants, while the conventional five-speed manual unit is standard.
