IGNIS: SUZUKI’S ALL-NEW GLOBAL COMPACT CROSSOVER

IGNIS: SUZUKI’S ALL-NEW GLOBAL COMPACT CROSSOVER

Suzuki Motor Corporation unveiled the new IGNIS for Europe at the 2016 Paris Motor Show as its new global compact crossover and it clearly demonstrates convenience and comfort in a stylish new exterior. It exudes Suzuki DNA from every pore, while at the same time introducing an entirely new design with unique character.

In addition to its stylish exterior design in a compact size of just 3,700mm long, the IGNIS  features excellent visibility, a spacious cabin and ample luggage space. The development goal was to create compact crossover styling that is undoubtedly Suzuki.

Under the ‘SUZUKI NEXT 100’ plan announced at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2015, Suzuki  developed a new platform strategy for its future models and the IGNIS is the second model (following Baleno) with this new generation platform to be introduced in Europe.

This new platform targets the reduction of weight as well as further increased rigidity and the lightest IGNIS model has a kerb weight of just 810kg.

Exterior design

The impressive shape of the IGNIS body begins with the distinctive front face that integrates the striking gaze of the LED headlamps and the strong lines of the front grille. It continues with the robust shoulders that suggest strength whilst utilising a simple design that at the same time presents a familiar, lovable expression. It also inherits the first-generation Cervo’s (SC100 Whizzkid ) slit-like ‘C’pillar design cues and also the Swift’s distinctive blacked out ‘A’ and ‘B’ pillar design.

Interior design

In addition to its simple yet unique design, the characteristic image of the IGNIS is further enhanced by its interior ambience. The round shape of its air-conditioning system’s panel and the advanced feel of its distinctive instrument cluster design combine to give the cabin environment a futuristic look.

Depending on the choice of exterior colour, orange and metallic titanium accent colours add an extra touch of quality to the cabin and help establish an active image that befits a crossover.

Capacity

Adopting Suzuki’s new generation platform strategy minimised the size of the engine compartment which has enabled maximising the space available for cabin occupants and luggage. Within its compact body size, IGNIS features a roomy and comfortable cabin with ample space between occupants, ample headroom and legroom contributing to its relaxing environment.

Another feature is large-capacity luggage space of 267L (SZ3), (204L for ALLGRIP model utilising a rear differential). It also adopts sliding rear seat functionality that, combined with the ability to fold down the rear seatbacks, makes it possible to accommodate a wide variety of luggage.

Specification Highlights

Standard equipment for all Ignis models in the range is comprehensive and the SZ3 model includes six airbags, air conditioning, DAB radio with Bluetooth, 15-inch wheels, body coloured door mirrors, front electric windows and five seat capacity. 

SZ-T adds satellite navigation, rear view camera, 16-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, wheel arch extensions and four seat capacity with individually sliding rear seats. SZ5 adds auto air conditioning, Dual Camera Brake Support, keyless entry and start, rear electric windows, LED Headlghts with DRL and front foglamps.

IGNIS is available in one solid colour, five optional metallic colours and five two tone colours whereby the roof colour on all is Super Pearl Black Metallic.  

Suzuki first introduced its 1.2-litre Dualjet technlogy (K12C) in 2014, initially in the Swift, and then utilised in the Baleno SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) in June 2016. In summary, Dualjet incorporates Suzuki’s engine technology and uses twin fuel injectors for improved fuel economy. Dualjet design positions the fuel injectors very close to the engine inlet valves which allows for a finer fuel atomisation (or mixture).

Available on the SZ5 manual model, the SHVS mild hybrid is a compact and lightweight unit that incorporates an Integrated Starter Generator (known as ISG) which acts as both a generator and starter motor, the ISG is belt driven and assists the engine during vehicle take off and acceleration and also generates electricity through regenerative braking.

The SHVS system only uses its conventional engine starter motor when first started from cold, under all other conditions it uses the ISG unit to allow smooth and quiet engine restarts.

The energy assistance provided during acceleration enables the SHVS to be known as a mild hybrid system which is ideally suited to a compact car and adds just 6.2kg to the overall weight. In the new IGNIS the SHVS system helps Suzuki reach a top class CO2 emissions figure of 97g/km plus achieve a fuel consumption figure of 65.7mpg on the EC combined cycle for the 2WD model.

4WD (ALLGRIP AUTO)

The new IGNIS adopts Suzuki’s ALLGRIP ‘AUTO’ four-wheel drive system and is available on the SZ5 model. First introduced in Swift, this is a well proven and simple fully automatic and permanent four-wheel drive layout which transfers additional torque to the rear wheels when required via a viscous coupling.   

Enhancements to the IGNIS ALLGRIP system include Hill Descent Control and Grip Control. Grip Control activates on slippery surfaces at speeds of less than 18mph. Once switched on by the driver, it focuses torque on the driven wheels that have grip and will quickly apply braking to the wheel that is spinning.

Safety equipment

The IGNIS adopts Suzuki‘s Total Effective Control Technology (TECT) concept that provides a high level of collision safety. Some of the features include collapsible structures that absorb impact energy in the event of a collision, a frame structure that effectively disperses impact energy, and rigid cabin structure.

As an additional safety feature on the SZ5 model, Dual Camera Brake Support (DCBS) is fitted which utilises stereo cameras located on each side of the drivers interior rear view mirror. These function in a similar way to the human eye and detect lane markings as well as objects ahead (including pedestrians) and also their distance away. This new feature has enabled the IGNIS SZ5 to be awarded Five Stars in the latest NCAP tests.

Convenience

The IGNIS SZ3 model has a fixed rear seat and the luggage area has a capacity of 267 litres (VDA) with the rear seat in its upright position. On SZ-T and SZ5 models the two individual rear seats can slide 165mm to provide either greater luggage capacity or more rear passenger leg room; additionally, the seat backrests have a two position recline function. The luggage capacity increases to 514 litres with both rear seats folded and can be as high as 1,100 litres if fully loaded to the roof line.
