Suzuki shows off new Ignis

Wednesday, 11th March, 2020 3:53pm

Suzuki’s Ignis has undergone a facelift, with renewed styling and powertrain. While retaining the iconic design characteristics of the current model, the new Ignis further reinforces its unique position as the only ultra-compact SUV in the mark.

It has a new front grille and bumpers, refined interior colours, and an efficiency-enhanced engine with expanded mild hybrid system capacity.

Since launching in 2016, the Ignis was chosen as a top three finalist in the 2017 World Urban Car awards and has continued to gain popularity.

The new Ignis builds on that iconic styling in a compact and functional package, increasing its appeal as a playful yet practical proposition in the market.

Distinctive exterior design features including a Suzuki’s characteristic five-spoke front grille and front and rear bumpers with silver under garnishes further accentuate the car’s SUV character and unusualness.

New interior accent colours - Lazuli Medium Blue Pearl and Medium Grey Metallic – and a boldly designed instrument panel improve the stylish urban taste of the interior.

A new K12D 1.2 DualJet engine and mild hybrid system with significantly enlarged 10Ah lithium-ion battery capacity, offers enhanced fuel efficiency, and is now available with a CVT automatic option.

Ingrained with Suzuki’s design heritage, including a slit-like C-pillar, blacked out A- and B- pillar, fender garnish, and clamshell bonnet, the Ignis utilises a simple design with a familiar, lovable expression, characterised by its unique headlights, black extended wheel arches, and robust shoulders.

The facelift model retains these iconic features, while adding a new Suzuki SUV-style five-spoke front grille, along with front and rear bumpers featuring trapezoid shape silver under garnishes.

Complementing the characteristic styling of the exterior, the interior of the Ignis was designed with futuristic urban styling and sweeping horizontal lines that convey breadth and a feeling of space.

This stylish urban taste has been further enhanced in the facelift model, with new gunmetal grey or blue accents matched to grey or blue seat upholsteries.

The instrument panel, featuring a newly designed instrument cluster, has been updated with a contrast of black and white that is simple in composition but leaves a bold impression.

The Ignis is available in eleven single-tone and seven two-tone colours, including three new shades – Caravan Ivory Pearl Metallic, Rush Yellow Metallic, and Tough Khaki Pearl Metallic.

The updated K12D 1.2 DualJet engine powering the new Ignis features a new dual injection system and offers both powerful response and high fuel efficiency. This high-level balance is made possible through advances that include an electric intake VVT (variable valve timing), a variable displacement oil pump and electric piston cooling jets.

Fuel efficiency is further enhanced when paired with the mild hybrid system powered by a lithium-ion battery with capacity that has been expanded from 3Ah to 10Ah.

The mild hybrid system converts kinetic energy generated during deceleration into electric energy which is charged to the lithium-ion battery and used by an electric motor function to assist the engine when accelerating for higher fuel efficiency.

Now available as an added option, the CVT offers powerful acceleration performance at low speeds and outstanding fuel efficiency when cruising at high speeds.

The 2020 model facelift Ignis will go on sale in April.
