Ignis to return

Suzuki says the second-generation Ignis will arrive here in early 2017. A 1595mm roof height ensures more upright proportions than its predecessor, which was sold locally in 2000-2005 (and 2002-2006 rebadged as a Holden Cruze). The interior aims to match the urban coolness of the exterior, with the option of orange and titanium trim accents.

The standard engine is a 66kW/120Nm 1.2-litre four-cylinder driving the front wheels. In some markets Ignis will be offered with all-wheel drive and a mild-hybrid drivetrain.
