The design of Ignis is quite out of the box, which is quite evident from the styling of the car. The grille that runs across the width of the car engulfing the headlamps, C-pillar slits, Suzuki-SUV fender garnish and overall boxy proportions all together gives a unique appeal to Ignis. The upcoming Ignis will be the first car in the Indian market with a refreshed interior styling, breaking the conventional theme of the existing models. A new steering-wheel, analog-digital instrument cluster, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, free standing screen with MirrorLink plus display for navigation and rear view camera are some of the key features. Suzuki Ignis will be offered with approximately 14 color options which will include five two-tone colors.
