Maruti Suzuki, India’s biggest car manufacturer has introduced the Ignis with the Automatic Gear Shift (AGS) option in top-end Alpha trim. Customers were eagerly awaiting to get the feature loaded Ignis Automatic which was earlier available only in Delta and Zeta trims.
Introducing AGS on Ignis Alpha variant, Mr R S Kalsi, Senior Executive Director, Marketing and Sales, Maruti Suzuki India Limited said, “Our premium urban compact vehicle Ignis has been created for millennials, a none of a kind brand in the Indian market. Automatic Gear Shift (AGS) on the Ignis, so far offered in the Delta and Zeta trims, has been widely appreciated by customers and accounts for 27% of Ignis sales. We are now offering AGS in the top trim as well – Ignis Alpha. We expect this to strengthen brand Ignis and enhance the popularity of AGS amongst millennials.”
The Ignis Automatic Alpha variants will be offered in both petrol and diesel options. The petrol model uses the proven 1.2L VVT engine that delivers a power of 81 hp at 6000 rpm and a torque of 113 Nm at 4200 rpm.
