The 2020 Suzuki Ignis or 2020 Suzuki Igunisu is a sub-compact car that was produced by Suzuki, replacing the Suzuki Cult, and then as a small cross from 2016. The Ignis Suzuki is a small SUV that is not much larger than a city car. He has character in the cabbage and should be free to run, but he is a flawed gem. The cult retired under various names globally, most notably as the Suzuki Swift. While the Cultus-based SWIF was replaced by Ignis in Europe and Australasia, the Japanese models were in fact symbolic of the Suzuki Swift – thus debuting the “Swift” name in that market. The word “ignis” is Latin for “fire”.
As a result of a venture project between General Motors (GM) and Suzuki, Ignis from 2001 also formed the basis of the Chevrolet Cruze. Cruze sold all over Japan as a Chevrolet, with Australian market versions of Holden Cruze advertised. Suzuki Europe adopted an extended version of the Cruze as the Suzuki Ignis – representing a relief of the original Ignis. In the same year, Subaru adopted the car as the Subaru G3X Justy, also exclusive to Europe.
2020 Suzuki Ignis Interior
The Suzuki Ignis is a fairly cheap car, so it is understandable that there have been some cost reductions inside. Scratched plastics aside, however, it is good to see that the Ignis interior design echoes its funky exterior and Suzuki incorporates a fair amount of equipment as standard. There is also space for four adults thanks to the upright position, which is not at all given in a car the size of Ignis. The Ignis 2020 dashboard is a two-tone case, with the conventional black/gray top gleaming from a low white top.
Suzuki has added further color blossoms, though the areas around the gear lever and interior door handles may have been in either orange or titanium. Which of these you get is determined by which of the buyers to choose from 14 Ignis color palettes. The Ignis touch screen display is a bit disappointing because compared to the best on its screen it lacks clarity and is not very responsive. However, it offers Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a DAB radio as standard.
2020 Suzuki Ignis Engine
Suzuki Ignis models feature the same 1.2-liter gasoline engine. This is quiet and eager during general use, but due to the fact that it makes the most of its 89bhp on relatively high-speed shooters, things can get quite noisy quite quickly. However, this is much less an issue in the city. Suzuki quotes a time of 0-62mph 12.2 seconds for the Dualjet model and 11.8 seconds for the SHVS version. We found the non-SHVS Ignis front-wheel-drive slightly more pleasant to drive than the soft 4×4 hybrid version, though the difference is quite small. It uses a battery pack and a smart starter motor to improve efficiency compared to non-electrified versions. It feels weird, getting from 0-62mph in 11.5 seconds.
The addition of the Suzuki 2020 Ignis four-wheel-drive greatly spoils the good work of the SHVS in terms of economy, although it saves a small amount from the 0-62mph time in Ignis. It is still not an option we recommend if you do not need it, as the additional 4×4 mechanisms add to the cost and reduce the 260-liter boot by about 20% to 204 liters – about 45 liters smaller than a Skoda Citigo. You can boost performance with LB7 Head Studs.
2020 Suzuki Ignis Safety
Another aspect of 2020 Ignis that requires some explanation is his safety assessment. Euro NCAP recently strengthened its testing criteria and divided its ratings into two: the first set of stars applies to a car in its standard specifications; the second evaluates its versatility when additional security features are set. While the 2020 Suzuki Ignis scored three stars in standard gear and five full with the DCBS safety option package fitted, we can only advise you to go to DCBS.
