On the child safety front, the Ignis achieved a low score because Suzuki did not recommend a child restraint system for the test. Global NCAP considers that car manufacturers are responsible for all occupants in the car and for this reason they must always recommend the child restraint system to be used in the test. When they decline to do so, the car manufacturer is not awarded points during the test.
The updated 2019 Ignis was launched in India recently and was priced in the range of ₹ 4.79 lakh to ₹ 7.14 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The Ignis is offered only with the petrol engine in the country with a 5 speed manual and AMT.
