Suzuki took over the name of Ignis and applied to what he called a SUV light and unlike the previous Ignis Swift filled between 2000 and 2005, the new 2017 Suzuki Ignis will be sold with Swift in a light car two points of attention for the brand. The SUV light still does not officially exist under Australian report sales, so the 2017 Suzuki Ignis are grouped in the same category as the smaller SUVs like the Suzuki Vitara, Honda VRC and Mazda CX- 3. But instead of shaking off small car buyers, Ignis exists to attract light hatch buyers who could be considered a Toyota Yaris or Holden Barina, and the price is so sharp, and distinctive style unlike any other sedan in Its Ignis segment is sure to attract attention.
Exterior and Interior
Front view, 2017 Suzuki Ignis is as cute as a button, especially with its chrome, or a color code around the headlights and grille. Suzuki says he has a “retro” style, which can be more than the tells, but stands out. The back and the false “blind” in the pillars “fall face” C are less attractive. The black and white interior, designed for custom colors stand out, does its job well, but, in general, the style becomes a great brand. But appearances are not everything and, although the 2017 Suzuki Ignis may have a low price, it definitely feels built for it. Hard plastics abound in the passenger compartment, the steering wheel is not pleasant to the touch, the brakes crack, there is a lot of engine noise under strong acceleration, the exposed steering of the column can be seen from the rear seats and Welds are visible below the threshold of the door.
And while 2017 Suzuki Ignis is Latin for “fire”, this car is not fireball. You could have a weight of 820 kg-865 kg tiny that is lower than a Mazda MX-5, but with figures common to the eighties power and torque, lower than CVT industry and non-linearity in one CVT direction, “Ignis” and “driving pleasure” are quite mutually exclusive concepts. We did not have the opportunity to try the manual version. The game body is surprisingly good of 180 mm, although the lower front bumper suspension prevents what would otherwise be a useful approximation angle. The small turning radius of 4.7 meters, however, it is very suitable for tight urban situations and the forgettable performance comes with an economic lining consumption of less than 5.0L / 100 km.
Throughout 2017 Suzuki Ignis weighs 820 kilograms in a tiny, which is a real point of sale compared to light panels typically tipping the balance closer to a ton. That’s why the 2017 Suzuki Ignis is powered by a moderate 66kW engine, supported with 120 Nm of torque from a 1.2-liter four-cylinder engine. Not exactly a power, but when the power weight of 2017 Suzuki Ignis seems weapons of the Swift. On the road which results in a light hatch that can follow with the cut of urban traffic and push. When it was launched that the automatic CVT was available, and from the start standing fizz happily at 60 km / h without being late.
Release and Price
Because it is an under $ 20,000 SUV, the 2017 Suzuki Ignis has few rivals. In Japan, its main focus was compact hatch buyers who are attracted by its extra space for a similar price. If it works the same way in Australia, it will be against everything from the Mitsubishi Mirage to the Toyota Corolla.
