Used Suzuki Ignis for sale
The Suzuki Ignis is a 5-door city car that offers SUV styling, a good level of practicality for its size and an efficient mild hybrid powertrain. It's a great alternative to other small Suzuki cars such as the Splash, Celerio and Swift.
Over its lifetime, the Ignis has received a number of updates, and the latest generation comes with a range of features that make it a great used car buy, such as:
- Well-equipped as standard
- Low running costs
- Characterful styling
- All-wheel drive availability
- Surprisingly spacious
Engines and Driving Experience
Your choice when it comes to engines is simple. You can choose between a 1.2-litre petrol engine that produces 89bhp and can achieve around 50.4mpg or a 1.2-litre mild hybrid powertrain that offers 82bhp and a more frugal 59mpg.
Bear in mind that the mild hybrid powertrain became standard for all specifications during a mid-life update, meaning you won't have the choice on newer examples.
As one of the lightest cars your money can buy, the Ignis offers an agile driving experience that's perfect for zipping around town. For the most part, it's also fairly comfortable, but it can be shook by larger imperfections due to its small size. Opt for an all-wheel drive variant and the Ignis is capable off-road, too.
Practicality and Running Costs
Compared to more traditional city cars, the Ignis offers an impressive amount of room. It can seat five, but it may be a bit of a squeeze; four adults will be able to enjoy what it has to offer in comfort, which is highly impressive for its dinky dimensions.
The boot is also well-sized, offering 260 litres of space in its standard setup, increasing to a mightily impressive 1,100 litres when folding the rear bench flat. The rear seats can slide forward and backwards individually on higher specifications, offering the highest level of versatility. If you do opt for the all-wheel drive variant, the boot is smaller, so keep that in mind if you need the space.
Small city cars often come with friendly running costs and the Ignis leans towards that side also. Insurance ranges between groups 15 and 21 (out of 50) and low cost servicing and maintenance can also be carried out at any Evans Halshaw dealership.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Due to its price tag, harder materials have been used within the interior, but it does look better than what some budget rivals have to offer. A combination of physical switches and a touchscreen infotainment system make up the dashboard, with all controls being within easy reach of the driver.
Entry-level SZ3 models come with LED headlights, DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity and will do the job if you're not after the latest gadgets. Go for a higher specification, such as the SZ5, and you'll receive Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, satellite navigation and keyless entry.
The Ignis also has a range of safety equipment available to reduce the risks of being out on the road, such as:
- Dual Camera Brake Support
- Tyre pressure monitoring system
- Hill hold control
- Emergency Stop Signal
Is the Suzuki Ignis right for me?
If you're after something a bit off the cuff that catches the eye of other road users, the Ignis may be right for you thanks to its SUV styling, economical engines and impressive levels of practicality.
Sitting in its own city car/micro SUV niche, direct competitors are few and far between, but the loveable Fiat Panda and cost-effective Dacia Duster are great places to start. Alternatively, you could opt for traditional yet stylish city car rivals such as the Volkswagen up! or Citroën C1.
