Meet Ignis – A distinctive small car with a bug SUV attitude. Light, compact and efficient, it's at home on city streets. Yet, it's rugged and versatile enough to take on the great outdoors. Perfect for those who want to grab life by the steering wheel.
What Car? Car of the Year 2021 - Small SUV Best for value Suzuki Ignis
The Suzuki Ignis Hybrid compact SUV has again been awarded a ‘Best Buy’ at the 2021 What Car? Awards held online on 12th January. Ignis was comprehensively judged by the editorial team and announced as the best value overall small SUV model.
The Ignis 1.2 Dualjet Hybrid 2WD was also awarded another ‘True Mpg’ What Car? accolade and remains the most economical car tested by the team. Ignis has previously won the long established magazine’s ‘True Mpg’ award in 2019 and 2020.
A distinctive small car with the wow-factor of an SUV, the Ignis combines the manoeuvrability of a compact car with muscular street presence so you can feel ultra-confident behind the wheel. Thanks to rugged skid plates and high ground clearance, you’ll tackle bumpy terrain and hilly city streets with no problems – enjoying a ride that’s smooth and protected at all times. Plus, with the roof rails*, there’s plenty of room for all your gear, whether it’s for a weekend bike ride or ski holiday or even if you just want to look cool. With the Ignis, you’re ready for adventure other small car drivers can only dream of.
Thanks to clever interior space design, the Ignis won’t cramp your style, with loads of legroom for everyone to sit in comfort. A high roof means excellent headroom to accommodate any hairstyle. Individually sliding rear seats* can be easily moved forward when you need to pack more for weekend getaways or quickly slid back to provide additional legroom for rear passengers.
The Ignis is the perfect mix of fun and practicality. Its light, agile, yet strong chassis coupled with a 1.2 litre Dualjet engine makes every journey something to look forward to. A compact body design means you can manoeuvre through narrow streets and parking is a breeze. While the SUV-like high driving position gives you an all-round view and awesome confidence behind the wheel. Whether you choose the manual or CVT automatic option, the Ignis will help you make the most of every moment in the driver’s seat.
The ALLGRIP Auto 4WD* option delivers excellent control on any surface, giving you peace-of-mind in difficult driving conditions like snow, rain or rough terrain. The system’s light and compact, which means there’s no compromise in driving pleasure. Nor does it take up more space. Ignis ALLGRIP models also have Grip Control technology, which ensures a smooth start on roads that are slippery with snow or mud, while Hill Descent Control intelligently restricts vehicle speed and automatically applies the brakes when coming down steep inclines. When you’re behind the wheel of an Ignis, you can be confident of going anywhere.
It’s time to experience Suzuki’s SHVS hybrid (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki), our new advanced driving system. SHVS reduces CO2 emissions and improves fuel efficiency which means lower running costs for you. Plus, it’s lighter and takes up less space than normal hybrid systems which, when combined with a lightweight chassis, ensures nimble performance as well as improved efficiency. Even better – it comes as standard on SZ5 manual models.
The Suzuki Ignis Hybrid is ULEZ ready.
To help improve air quality, an Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year, except Christmas Day (25 December), within the same area of central London as the Congestion Charge.
As of 25 October 2021, the ULEZ is expanding from central London to create a single, larger zone up to, but not including, the North Circular Road (A406) and South Circular Road (A205).
