Review

The Suzuki Ignis is a fair choice if you’re looking for an affordable city runabout but also need the all-weather peace of mind a four-wheel-drive system can bring. It’s a very easy car to drive and clever packaging means it’s spacious enough for most city car needs. What drags its score down is patchy interior quality and fairly unremarkable handling.

get the best price

This top trim pushes the price up, but it is exceedingly well equipped. There’s built in sat nav, rear electric windows, a leather steering wheel, keyless entry and start, climate control, a couple of extra speakers for the stereo, cruise control, lane departure warning and, crucially, AEB. It’s also the only trim where you can add four-wheel drive.

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.
