The small crossover with the big heart brings a breath of fresh air and innovation to the local small car market by linking the wieldy agility of a city runabout to the robust styling and stance of an all-terrainer.
First shown at the 2015 Paris Motor Show, the Ignis has since become a popular addition to the Suzuki small car family in Europe. It has earned several accolades since then, including being voted a runner-up in the World Urban Car Award earlier this year.
The Ignis adds a further string to Suzuki Auto South Africa’s compact car bow, further strengthening the brand’s reputation for fresh and exciting products that overdeliver on expectations, while offering a potent mix of cost-saving efficiency, high comfort and safety levels, and value for money.
About the The Suzuki IGNISAt just 3,7 metres long and 1,69 metres wide, the proportions of the Ignis express agility, while the generous 180 mm ground clearance confirms that the newcomer isn’t scared to get its boots dirty.
Standard items across all models include electric windows, remote central locking, air-conditioning, electric power steering, and an MP3-compatible CD sound system with USB port and 12V accessory power socket, dual front airbags, ABS anti-lock brakes, side impact protection beams, Isofix child seat anchors and child-proof rear door locks.
PerfomanceWith a kerb mass of only 850 kg (860 kg in the case of the AMT version), the Ignis offers sprightly and responsive dynamics.
The manual-transmission model accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 11,6 sec, while top speed is 165 km/h. Fitted with the automated manual transmission, the Ignis gets to 100 km/h from rest in 13,0 sec, while top speed is 155 km/h.
The new Suzuki Ignis is offered in a choice of four colours, and a pair of two-tone colour combinations. The GL model can be ordered in Uptown Red Pearl Metallic, Arctic White Pearl Metallic, Silky Silver Metallic, and Glistening Grey Metallic.
The beaut is covered by a standard three-year/100 000 km warranty, as well as a two-year/30 000 km service plan. Services are at 15 000 km/12 month intervals.
