Suzuki Ignis 2018 car
Suzuki’s chunky ignis first saw the light of the day at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. It was an interesting place to make a first step – it was the car’s glamorous event of the year and Suzuki was a brand. real salt. But it really makes sense – while it’s not called Ignis (it debuted under the clumsy iM-4), its personal appearance gets fans excited.
Six months later, it appeared in Tokyo and a year later in Paris with the name Ignis we have today. Pinch-it-cheeks are cute, it’s a participant in the compact SUV segment dominated by much bigger companies – and cars – than Suzuki. Oddly enough, it is weird and doesn’t seem to have much meaning. But that has never really stopped the company before, so why now?
Is there anything interesting about its design? 7/10
While Ignis is definitely special, the GLX raises it up a bit. Most of the outer layers go on bigger wheels, colorful trim and, if you like, spend another big one and you can get two-tone paint that’s almost not as horrible as it sounds. .
Interestingly, it is almost tall and wide, giving the car a special bearing. The bold exterior styling, with pump wheels, confident large headlights and some brave corners at the back. There is even a trio that looks like gills carved into column C.
All that slump and high roof means a reasonably spacious interior. Nothing here is particularly striking but seems to be appropriately combined and the materials are okay.
How realistic is the inner space? 7/10
It may be small, but you might get a little on Ignis. Front-seat passengers enjoy a pair of cupholders while rear-seat passengers must share one for a total of three. Each door will hold a small bottle.
The person in the back row has a lot of legroom for such a small car. They will have to endure a spring trip when the road becomes bumpy, but it’s amazing how many feet and headroom are available. There is no room for a midsize passenger in the GLX, so it’s just a four-seater.
Open the hatch and even though the rear of the car is clearly abbreviated by Ignis, you’ll have a boot capacity of 264 liters, which is not bad for a car of this size. Fold the rear seats down and you’ll have an impressive, fairly small 1104-liter.
Does it represent good value for the price? What features does it come with? 7/10
Underneath the hilarious reborn Vitara and along with the new Swift, Ignis starts at $ 15,990 for the GL manual, with another $ 1,000 giving you CVT automatically. Then there was a step up to $ 18,990 for the GLX, the car that I was in charge of for a week.
The GLX only automatically uses a 16-inch alloy, six-speaker stereo, climate control, reversing camera, keyless start and start, cruise control, sat navigation, auto LED headlights , leather-wrapped steering wheel, power windows and mirrors, fabric trim and a space-saving device. The 7.0-inch touchscreen offers six-speaker stereo and features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto – very few in the class can handle that. The screen is also not bad, although the lack of proper volume buttons will never be uncomfortable.
What are the important stats for engine and transmission? 6/10
Ignis is equipped with a small, 1.2-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 66kW / 120Nm, both of which are not broken. While the basic GL scores five-speed manual points, you’re pretty stuck with the CVT auto in GLX. As you might expect, it’s just the front wheel drive.
How much fuel does it consume? 6/10
Ignis’s claimed combined cycle numbers are 4.9L / 100km, which feels almost impossible when you consider we have 8.1L / 100km. The number is claimed to be great with a tiny 32 liter fuel tank. It consumes 91 RON and emits 114g / km of CO2 when reduced to the required level.
What does it like to drive? 7/10
Weighing only 865kg, Ignis is surprised to have a slim physique, a handicap of CVT and a high car height. As you get used to the body roll, the rear part sometimes bounces and the CVT, it’s a complete urban warrior.
CVT is not great to get started and sadly this is not good. Indecisive and flammable, a throttle flattens the 1.2-liter engine into a bit dizzying from which a little straight line performance can be drawn. It will be fine once it rolls, and hold onto the highway surprisingly. Just not particularly fast.

However, uploading Ignis is a surefire way to slow things down. No need to be four up, the suspension behind the elastic strip goes all the trampoline.
One of the reasons it’s good around town is the amazing rotation. The steering is not slow, but the wheels continue and the rotation becomes tighter, with the full-circle turning less than 10 meters. Parking is easy, maneuvering around tight spots is simple.
