Introduction

What Car? says...

Some new cars barely change their looks from generation to generation, but the Suzuki Ignis is not one of them. Over its lifetime, the Ignis has turned from a humdrum MPV-styled hatchback to the tiny SUV that you see in these photos.

And when we say tiny we really mean it; the Ignis is just 3.7m long and 1.7m wide. It's so small, in fact, that it’s about the same size as its Volkswagen Up and Kia Picanto rivals. 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, an 82bhp 1.2-litre petrol that uses mild hybrid technology to ensure it sips fuel oh-so-gently. And, unlike so many SUVs currently on sale, the diminutive Ignis actually offers traction-enhancing four-wheel drive as an option. It’s practical; mid-range models and up get sliding rear seats that allow you to prioritise rear leg room or boot space.

There are three trims to choose from: SZ3, SZ-T and SZ5. Read on to find out which gets our vote and if we think the Ignis is worth considering over the other SUVs you could choose for this kind of money, such as the Dacia Duster, or pricier entrants into the Small SUV class such as the Ford Puma, Skoda Kamiq and Volkswagen T-Roc.

And, whichever you decide is the car for you, head over to our New Car Buying service, to buy your car the stress-free way.
