When it comes to looks , compact sedans aren’t the best looking cars around and the Dzire is not an exception here. The boot of the Dzire looks more like an “unnecessary” addition to the good looking Swift . On the other hand, the Ignis looks stylish with features like the big, chrome lined grille housing the headlamps, LED daytime running lights. It gets an SUV type look. Thanks to the body cladding, roof rails and a high ground clearance work. It must be noted that however the rear of the Ignis looks a bit odd and doesn’t look as good as the front end.

Maruti Ignis vs Dzire- Interiors

Marutio Ignis Interiors Swift Dzire Interiors

The interiors of the Maruti Dzire are identical to that of the Swift hatchback. However, there is a major difference. The Swift has an all-black cabin, while the Dzire has a black-beige colour scheme. Though the design is not what can be called outstanding,  overall its good with use of quality materials.

The Ignis gets dual tone combination of ivory white and black. The Dzire lacks the SmartPlay touchscreen infotainment system, which is being offered with the Ignis.

Maruti Ignis vs Dzire- The Final Verdict

Maruti now has four cars in the Rs 4-8 lakh segment with the launch of the Ignis. Now with the rising demand of SUVs/crossovers , the Ignis could we become another hit for Maruti.

  • Price – The Ignis has a comparatively lower starting price than the Dzire. However the top end variants of both cars cost almost the same when it comes to pricing.
  • Specifications – The Ignis and the Dzire share their engine lineup. While the Ignis petrol is offered with a 5-speed AMT, the Dzire petrol gets a 4-speed Auto. Diesel models of both the Ignis and the Dzire get a 5-speed AMT as an option.
  • Features – The Ignis is more feature packed being a compact luxury offering. Whereas the Dzire misses out on certain features that the Ignis gets such as touchscreen infotainment, LED DRLs, projector headlamps.
  • Design – The Ignis definitely has fresh looks and has looks of an SUV.  Whereas the Dzire looks a bit awkward primarily because of its boot. The reason being the 4-metre length cap. However, that said, looks are a matter of personal choice so its upto the car buyer which car he or she likes more.
