Review

The Suzuki Ignis is a fair choice if you’re looking for an affordable city runabout with a raised driving position befitting its small SUV status. The all-weather peace of mind the four-wheel-drive system can bring is an unusual option in this class, and it's by no means necessary for everybody. It’s a very easy car to drive and clever packaging means it’s more spacious than you might think. What drags its score down is patchy interior quality and fairly unremarkable handling.

Our favourite trim may delete the SZ3’s CD player, but instead you get a 7.0in touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, 16in alloy wheels, a reversing camera, roof rails and two individual sliding and reclining rear seats.

The only engine option has a meagre 82bhp, yet mild hybrid assistance means it pulls pretty well from low engine speeds and it’s faster than most city cars when you rev it out. It’s also very economical and has the option of four-wheel drive in top SZ5 trim.
