Maruti Suzuki launched the Ignis back in 2017, and due to its unique and retro styling, it was aimed towards younger buyers. Now some new images have surfaced online, and they seem to be of the international-spec Ignis facelift. The design is likely to make it to the India-spec Ignis facelift that is expected to be launched by mid-2020.

From these images, we can see that the Ignis facelift sports a new grille design similar to the one seen on the S-Presso, as well as a new front and rear bumper design. We can also see that both the bumpers get faux scuff plates. The rest of the styling, however, seems very similar to the current model, including the side profile, where the wheels, headlights, and tail-lights all appear to be carried over.

In terms of engines, the updated hatchback is expected to use the same BS6 version of the 1.2-litre petrol engine, currently seen in the Swift and Baleno. In the Swift, the 1.2-litre, four-cylinder engine produces 83hp and 113Nm of torque, but in the transition to BS6, it did see a marginal drop in fuel efficiency. Coming to gearbox options, the engine will be offered with a 5-speed manual and an AMT automatic unit.

Although the interiors are not visible in these images, the facelift is likely to feature the same interiors as the updated Ignis which saw the addition of the SmartPlay Studio infotainment and was launched earlier this year.

In the Indian market, the Maruti Suzuki Ignis rivals the likes of the Ford Freestyle and the Mahindra KUV100 NXT.

But hasn't the Ignis been discontinued? I was under the assumption that the production of Maruti Suzuki Ignis had been discontinued in 2018.

Actually only the diesel variant of Ignis was discontinued in June 2018. The car was launched in 2017 but it was not very well received by the public. Since then there were talks about Maruti stopping the production of the car, however, they just stopped diesel and people were surprised when there was an update about the facelift in 2019, though it was not significant.

The 2019 facelift just had the addition of the silver roof trails. These trails were, however, available in only the Alpha and Zeta variants of the 2019 Ignis.
The 2020 facelift will see new bumpers and grille. Like the 2019 facelift, there will be an updated infotainment system and will also be available in new colors.

The Maruti Suzuki Ignis facelifted images that have surfaced on the internet seem to be those of the international spec model and Indians can expect a version close to the same very soon. The car will mostly be launched in India by mid-2020.
