MARUTI SUZUKI IGNIS
The Ignis is a brave car from Maruti Suzuki, what with its unconventional styling. But underneath those clothes lies a perfect city car – surprisingly spacious, ridiculously easy to manoeuvre, with the option of an automated manual gearbox and – what our jury found to their surprise – fun to drive as well. Aimed at the millennial, the Ignis offers style and panache but with the same core values of dependability, value-for-money and frugality that Maruti Suzuki has excelled in throughout its thirty-plus years of existence. A deserving Hatchback of the Year winner.
