What's on this page

Suzuki Ignis

The Suzuki Ignis is a small SUV-esque hatch that was re-launched in 2017.

It returned after the discontinuation of the original Ignis, which was also sold in Australia as the first-generation Holden Cruze.

At the time of its relaunch it was available in two trim levels with just one 1.2-litre petrol engine in either CVT auto or manual guise.

It serves as a stand-in for the Suzuki Celerio which was discontinued around the time of the Ignis’ arrival.

The range currently extends from the Ignis GL at $18,740 to the Ignis GLX (qld) at $21,740.

The second-generation Ignis is more of a style-focused small SUV competing against cars like the Mazda CX-3 and Nissan Juke.

  • Suzuki Ignis stopping

    I would suggest it’s running out of fuel. Have the fuel pump checked.

  • Ignis a bit thirsty

    FUEL consumption depends on many things, the way you drive, the type of traffic you drive in, the pressures of the tyres. So car companies use a standard test to measure fuel consumption. That way they can compare one model with the next, one make with another. It doesn't necessarily relate to real-world fuel consumption, though I would expect it will be reasonably close. If Suzuki is claiming 9.5L/100km, your 10L/100km is close enough to say you don't really have a complaint.

Suzuki Ignis Accessories

The Ignis GLX includes LED headlights with daytime running lights and auto on/off functionality, climate control air-conditioning, keyless entry and start, six (rather than four) speaker audio system, privacy glass and 16-inch alloy wheels (with a space-saver spare), replacing 15-inch steelies. 

They build on the base GL’s six airbags (dual front, front side and curtain items), stability control, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist and traction control, as well as cruise control, fog lights, 7.0-inch touchscreen, reverse camera, satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity, Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, leather-clad steering wheel and roof rails. Digital radio is not available on either grade.

Interestingly, the GLX also swaps the GL’s fixed three-seater rear bench seat for a sliding (and reclining) 50/50 split-fold two-seater item, trading practicality for luggage-lugging versatility. 

Suzuki Ignis Interior

Suzuki’s thought about storage, as demonstrated by the big glovebox, bottle-holding door pockets up front, deep lower-console shelf and trio of cupholders, though there is no central armrest or bin, even in this up-spec grade.

Suzuki’s gone for a somewhat old-school off-roader theme inside, evidenced by the chunky heater/air-con controls, toggle switchgear and 4x4-look pared-back dash, while there’s plenty of hardy, hollow-sounding plastics to remind you that this is built down to a price.

There’s space galore in every direction in the four-seater GLX version as tested, excellent vision and windows that wind (electrically of course) all the way down for a light and airy feel.

Suzuki Ignis Boot Space

You'll marvel at the versatility of the cargo area, thanks to the sliding split bench in the GLX grade, that increases cargo capacity from 264 litres in normal four-seat mode to 515L with the backrests folded and 1104L in “maximum volume” mode.

It’s properly long and deep in this setting. There’s a deep floor (with a space-saver spare underneath) and a light, but not much else. The fit and finish is fine but the floor seems flimsy and the parcel shelf lightweight. At least it isn’t mesh as per the Honda HR-V’s.

Suzuki Ignis Seats

The front buckets are comfy and enveloping, even though there is no lumbar adjustment support fitted; there is a height lever on the driver’s side, ample rearward travel for taller folk and side bolstering to help hug you through corners, while the soft cloth material feels good to the touch.

Being a GLX, the rear bench is split 50/50, is designed to only carry two people. Both also slide forward by a significant amount, boosting cargo space.
