Slated for launch on January 13, Maruti Suzuki Ignis is a much awaited car by the automaker. The company has begun accepting online bookings for the car, waiting period for which is already at three weeks after the launch.

Maruti has said the Ignis will be sold only through Nexa dealerships.

It is expected to come in four variants - Alpha (Manual only), Delta (Manual and AMT), Zeta (Manual and AMT) and Sigma (Petrol manual only).
