Thoughts About The Maruti Suzuki Ignis Zeta Variant Receiving New Feature Upgrade

Maruti Suzuki has given the mid-spec variant a very functional update. The infotainment systems play a vital role in the in-cabin experience of a vehicle. However, the new update also comes with a new price increase of Rs 9,000. Considering a cost for an aftermarket system to cost a little more than that, we feel it is a good deal, especially being a factory fitment.
