Suzuki Ignis

(2016 - present)

The Suzuki Ignis is a small city car-sized crossover model. It shares its name with a Suzuki model from the last decade, but the current model is an all-new vehicle that was released in late 2016.

Being a slightly more rugged version of a city car with optional four-wheel drive, the Ignis doesn’t have many direct rivals. However, many conventional city cars would do a similar job for most buyers.

The Suzuki Ignis has received mostly positive reviews from the UK motoring media, including several awards. However, it has also received a “Don’t Buy” recommendation from Which? magazine due to its relatively poor three-star safety rating.

The Ignis has received particular praise for its quirky and distinctive styling, competitive pricing and general practicality for a city car. On the other hand, it has been criticised for poor driving dynamics and cheap interior materials compared to other similarly-priced vehicles.
