The Suzuki Ignis Gets an Update For 2020

Added: 14 October 2020

The Suzuki Ignis is a vehicle that seems like it’ll be around for a while. It does, after all, offer much that modern drivers want to see in a vehicle. Though it went on an eight-year hiatus between 2008 and 2016, the Japanese car manufacturer decided to revive the popular vehicle, and today it’s arguably bigger than it has ever been. One of the reasons for the continued popularity of the model is Suzuki’s commitment to making subtle improvements; not one to rest on their laurels, they’ve ensured that the Ignis gets a smart update for 2020.

So what’s different this time around? There are changes both outside, inside, and under the hood. On the outside, you’ll find that the vehicle has been given a more SUV-inspired look, with a five-slot front-grille included at the front. You’ll also find subtle differences in the front and rear bumper. There’s also a contrasting colour scheme, that’s designed to give the Ignis a slightly tougher look.

On the inside, you’ll find the same old infotainment system from the outgoing model (which is just fine, since it was a good one!), as well as some subtle differences. For example, the clustered digital instrument is a marked improvement, as are the new colour accents.

Under the hood is where things improve even further. It performs better and is more efficient than the previous model of the Ignis. There’s a 1.2 litre Dualjet petrol engine, and the lithium-ion battery has also grown in size -- whereas it used to 3Ah, now it’s 10Ah. Suzuki has also incorporated an automatic option into their trim levels. They’ve retained the gears option too, but it’s always good to have an option. This is a car that has been designed for zipping around the city, where automatic vehicles are more in demand. 

One of the standout improvements that the updated engine will bring is a highly respectful MPG of 55 for the manual options, 51.9 for the automatic options. The CO2 output is 114g/km for the manual transmission, and slightly more the automatic vehicle. If you’re interested in the amount of time it takes to reach 0 - 60mph: it’s 12.7 seconds for the manual car, 12.4 seconds for the automatic. They’re both about right for this class of vehicle. There are a few different trim types, some of which come with infotainment features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The top of the range trim includes things like automatic air conditioning, keyless entry, and rear electric windows, among other features. The entry-level model comes with a host of features as standard too.
