On April 1, 2023, the second phase of the BS6 emissions norms will go into effect. With this in mind, all auto manufacturers are updating their vehicles, and Maruti Suzuki recently launched the 2023 RDE-compliant Ignis at a price of Rs 5.82 lakh (ex-showroom). The Ignis hatchback's sole petrol engine has been updated to comply with upcoming Real Driving Emission (RDE) norms. Further, the hatchback is offered in six monotone and two dual-tone colour schemes. Turquoise Blue, Lucent Orange, Nexa Blue, Glistening Grey, Silky Silver, and Pearl Arctic White are some of the monotone colours. Its dual-tone paint options, which cost Rs 14,000 more than standard paint, include Nexa Blue (Black, Grey Roof) and Lucent Orange with a Black roof.

The Ignis continues to include a tilt steering wheel, start/stop ignition button, automatic climate control, auto ORVMs, and a 7-inch infotainment touch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
