The mini-SUV, unveiled at the Delhi Auto Expo last year, poses a threat to the Mahindra KUV100 and the Renault Kwid for its styling, but will give Hyundai i10 and Honda Brio a run for their money too.

Ignis, which Maruti Suzuki has sculpted for the millennials, is packed with features inside and outside the cabin.

“Car purchases by millennial have gone up by 22.7% in the last couple of years,” explained R.S. Kalsi, head of sales and marketing at Maruti.

The 7” touchscreen infotainment system , borrowed from the Baleno, can be linked by both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
