 2022 Suzuki Ignis

 “Small city car with a lot to offer and easy on the pocket.”

2022 Suzuki Ignis Price in the UK:

IGNIS SZ3 Starts at: £14,749
IGNIS SZ-T Starts at: £16,249
IGNIS SZ5 Starts at: £17,249

This is how I quite define the Suzuki Ignis for the money and joy it brings. It’s a city car with some extra-curricular activities programmed to it just in case you find yourself bored. What it means is that Ignis will glide through tight roads while giving you a pleasant drive rather than boring you to death. Suzuki Ignis has everything that the car market is right now, it’s hybrid, small, and cute.

Since Ignis aged to achieve its second generation back in 2016, the second-gen has quite some changes done to it. Suzuki Ignis has got a newer platform, newer engine, updated re-designed interior and most importantly it’s lighter.  The newer platform is based on high-strength steel which is expensive and harder to engineer, gladly the Ignis doesn’t need much of it due to its small size. However, this means the Ignis is light by which I mean really light! The base model weighs only 801 kg followed by 855kg for the mid-range model. To put this to sense, it’s 1000kg lighter than its Volkswagen competitor. Thus such little weight benefits the economy.

Engine & Transmission:

Suzuki Ignis comes with a 1.2L 4-cylinder engine with 89hp from the front-wheel drive. However, to add more it is powered by a mild-hybrid battery setup and some slight electric boost. The electric boost helps Ignis climb over a hill and aids slip-road acceleration. According to Suzuki, it’s less expensive than a turbocharger and more sophisticated which we have to agree upon. The 7kg hybrid battery resides under the rear seat increasing downforce at the rear end without compromising boot space. Suzuki Ignis, therefore, gives a whooping mileage of 50 mpg in real-world (officially claimed to be 61.4 mpg). Apart from that, you wouldn’t be able to notice hybrid systems as they work seamlessly in the background as you drive.

Suzuki Ignis comes with an option between an automatic gearbox and a five-speed manual for a rather quick and lightweight drive. However, what holds the Ignis special is other than FWD it also comes in an all-wheel-drive system which Suzuki badges as all-grip. This gives the Ignis strength to climb mountains with confidence.

Interior Design & Features:

Hoping on the inside of Suzuki Ignis there’s plenty of headroom but it gets squeezed in leg space at the back along with a crimped window that erodes your view to the outside. Obviously, it’s not much plush but it’s tough from the inside. The switchgear and touchscreen are rather sluggish and difficult to operate as compared to the rivals so make up your mind for that in Ignis. The touchscreen is powered by a Pioneer screen with dull graphics and an after-market feel to it but happily, it does accommodate Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The steering wheel controls are logical whereas you can have driving information displayed on the touchscreen whilst you used your phone for the operating menu by displaying the functions on it.

There’s some fun added to Ignis with the two-tone dashboard and retro handles. Thus the Ignis from the inside feels stronger, harder, and most importantly represents the touches of being a somewhat plush car. As for your luggage, the boot trunk is 260 liters spacious enough to accommodate luggage. Whereas with rear seats in 50-50 configuration you can have either more trunk space or legroom, it’s up to you.

Owing Suzuki Ignis:

If it is not quite evident until now, yes the Suzuki Ignis doesn’t cost much to run or buy. The range for Suzuki Ignis trims starts from the lower-end base model namely the SZ3 followed by the mid-range model SZ-T and then the all-wheel drive SHVS, with a choice of automatic and manual.

Price & Competitors:

Suzuki Ignis starts at £14,749 whereas the hybrid all-grip (all-wheel drive) goes up to £17,249. So for such a useful vehicle, the price is rather good. Suzuki Ignis is a rival to Volkswagen UP, Fiat 500, and Toyota Aygo.

Verdict:

Suzuki Ignis is decently priced, well-featured, and especially a fun-to-drive small SUV. It rather is charming as a cherry placed on top of a cake adding delight to your dessert. The design is loveable making it one of the most compelling small cars available for sale in the market right now.
