This time around it's taken the 'small' part to the extreme, though - the Suzuki Ignis is just 3.7m long and 1.7m wide, so small in fact that it rivals city cars such as the Fiat 500 and Vauxhall Adam. However, with its flared arches, bluff nose and jacked-up stance, there’s no mistaking it for anything other than a radically designed and eye-catching baby SUV.
Just one engine is available: Suzuki's 1.2-litre 89bhp petrol, which has the further option of a more fuel-efficient mild hybrid version, previously seen in the firm's Baleno supermini. You can also opt for a four-wheel drive version.
There are three different trims to choose from: SZ3, SZ-T and SZ5. Read on to find out which of them gets our vote, and to see if we think the Ignis is worth considering over its rivals.
