The Suzuki Ignis was sold in Europe -including Spain-, and will be on sale in our continent from January 2017. A few months before, the model of european specifications will have its official presentation, taking advantage of the Paris Salon 2016 during the first week of October.
With this new generation of the Ignis, the manufacturer nippon stays true to its philosophy of “less is more”: cars, affordable, and of small size, where they are specialists. The design of the Suzuki Ignis 2017 for Europe will respect the style of the version for your local market, directly based on the earlier prototype Suzuki iM-4 Concept.

Using the new platform of the brand, very light, that is structurally rigid, will not exceed the ton of weight. The range of engines of Ignis shall be composed of the 1.0 Boosterjet three-cylinder turbo, as well as a 1.2 SHV, using a hybridization gentle to save fuel: both mechanical already offered in the Suzuki Positioned in 2016, and reach up to 111 HP and 90 HP, respectively.
In this way, the new Suzuki Ignis rivalizará in the market with other urban 4×4 drive system, such as the Fiat Panda 4×4 and Fiat Panda Cross.
