2017 Suzuki Ignis "city-suv" Is Aimed At Youngsters

2017 Suzuki Ignis "City-SUV" Is Aimed At YoungstersIn a world where crossovers are becoming more and more popular, we reckon many buyers will appreciate the Ignis' semi-rugged appearance in a city-car package.
In terms of rivals, the 2017 Ignis matches up well with something like the Fiat Panda, especially in its crossover trims. Other than that, its boxy dimensions make it a lot more SUV-like than your run-of-the-mill Toyota Aygos or Renault Twingos, whereas its size keeps it out of that slightly larger Opel Mokka/Renault Captur segment.

New Suzuki Jimny Sierra to remain a hardcore ladder-frame 4×4The confirmed successor to the much-loved Suzuki Jimny Sierra (current model pictured above) will retain the famed off-road ability and toughness, the company says.
Expect familiar ladder frame construction, off-road suspension and reduction gearing (low range) to remain part of the next iteration, which will also sport more safety equipment, cool retro styling language and potentially a downsized BoosterJet turbo engine — though the latter is not confirmed.

New Suzuki Swift Aimed Squarely At Mazda 2

New Suzuki Swift aimed squarely at Mazda 2Suzuki Australia says it expects the brand new Swift, due around June this year, to battle the Mazda 2 for sales supremacy in the private (non-fleet) part of the market.
The new 2017 Swift, revealed right at the end of last year ahead of its European premiere this March in Geneva, will arrive in Australia by mid-year and bring with it a large suite of updates over the tired (but still cute) current iteration, which has ceased production but remains in stock here.

Suzuki Apv’s Australian Future Clouded

Suzuki APV’s Australian future cloudedThe future of the unique Suzuki APV in Australia from 2018 onwards appears to be under a cloud, because of vehicle emission regulations.

Suzuki Ignis Sport Turbo On Wish-list

Suzuki Ignis Sport turbo on wish-listSuzuki Australia is keen to get its hands on a hotted-up version of the high-riding new Ignis city car as soon as possible, potentially using a version of the Baleno’s turbo engine.
However, the small issue of whether such a car is even in development lingers, though given the old Ignis’ use in rallying (as pictured below at The Acropolis), we’d imagine it’s been at least considered.

Suzuki’s Funky New Ignis Might Be The Most Special Model Of Its Class

Suzuki’s Funky New Ignis Might Be The Most Special Model Of Its ClassThe new Suzuki Ignis is not your usual city car as it blends rather interestingly SUV elements into a compact body.
The combination might prove to be a hit for Suzuki as the new Ignis is both fresh as a proposal and has that SUV appeal that most customers seem to love these days. It certainly sticks out more than the boring normal city cars you can get right now in Europe.
