Suzuki Ignis



LET'S play word association. Suzuki. Small. Japanese. Utility. Four-by-four. Motorcycles. There's no prize for the next test, either, but can you name the manufacturer's entire UK car and van range? Anyone who gets past Vitara and Wagon R+ is probably the captain of a pub quiz team.

For full marks you will now need to include Ignis, which was launched at the British International Motor Show with on-the-road prices from ú6,995 to ú9,500 to cover three- and five-door versions, one 1.3-litre engine and GA and GL trims, the latter with optional automatic transmission.

Made in Japan, it's another city car, but not like Alto, nor a multi-purpose city car like Wagon R+. Ignis is cross-bred with its brothers to create a tall but compact five-seater hatchback.

Height is Wagon R+, wheel-arches are Jimny/Vitara-ish and most of the interior knick-knacks crop up across the Suzuki catalogue, although it does have a few neat tricks of its own. The closest Ignis has to a rival outside its own brand is the Toyota Yaris.

CO2 emissions and fuel consumption data correct at time of writing. The latest figures are available in the Fleet News fuel cost calculator and the company car tax calculator.
