Ignis vs Swift
Suzuki launched Swift in May 2005 and since then it has been a phenomenal success. Swift has been most popular hatchback in India. It has been one of the best selling cars in India with more than 15000 units sold every month.
Ignis is a new comer by Suzuki. Ignis was launched on 13 January 2017. Stunning design and updated features make it stand out compared to other cars like swift. Though it target other market segment i.e a compact SUV or a crossover being in same price segment it competes with swift.
Both the cars are good but Ignis appear to be better than Swift.
It is important to note that Suzuki is launching new swift in mid of 2017.
Ignis vs Swift Looks:
Though Look is a matter of personal choice. I find Ignis to have better looks.
Design of Ignis is contemporary. It looks really cool with day time running lamps and led headlamps. Front of Ignis is more aggressive. With 15 inch alloy wheels and dimensions of a compact SUV Ignis looks more sporty compared to Swift.
Swift has been quite popular in India. So it will not be a attention grabber. Ignis is available in dual color tone exterior and interior while swift is not.
Ignis vs Swift Interior:
Ignis is available with dual tone interior which make it look sporty. The 7 inch display serves dual purpose of navigation as well as stereo. The Dashboard is stylish and contemporary. Instrument cluster is better than that in swift.
Head room is sufficiently good in front and rear seats. There is more space in rear seats of Swift compared to that in Ignis. Both the cars are equally good in terms of practicality. Boot space of Ignis is 260 liter while that of swift is 232 liter.
Ignis vs Swift Engine:
Both Swift and Ignis share same power train. They are powered by same Ford 1.2 liter petrol and 1.3 liter Diesel engine. Suzuki claims than the engine of Ignis is more refined. When it comes to power and pickup Ignis beats swift. Being a light weight it offers better pickup.
As Ignis is a new comer the ride quality will be known only after some time. Let us hope to have same level of comfort as that of Swift.
