Suzuki Ignis Hybrid

Firstly, the Ignis in these images is not the top-end variant, as it misses out on projector headlights and foglights. However, it is certainly one of the higher variants owing to the presence of black alloy wheels (175/60-R16), and features on the inside.
Also, the Ignis here sports ‘Hybrid’ badges on the fenders and bootlid, clearly indicating that it is equipped with some amount of electrical assistance aside from the usual start-stop system (SHVS).
Moving inside, we observe a multifunction steering wheel, an instrument cluster with a multi-information display, a touchscreen entertainment system, automatic climate control and an automatic transmission which is unlikely an AMT (automated manual transmission) unit, given the presence of the ‘Low’ mode. The door panel and center tunnel also receive a contrasting ‘Orange’ handle, though the overall theme is a black-and-beige combination.
In an interview last week, Mr. RS Kalsi, Executive Director for Marketing and Sales, Maruti Suzuki, said that the launch of the Ignis will take place in the fourth quarter of this financial year (January-March 2017 period). It is expected to come with petrol and diesel engines paired to manual and AMT boxes.
