2016 Suzuki Ignis: More spunk than original, is a crossover

The second generation Suzuki Ignis will be unveiled at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, and looks to carry on from the first car, which ceased production in 2006.


Unlike the first car though, the new Ingis looks to have considerably more spunk in terms of style, with large expressive eyes, upswept windows, and an abbreviated tail.

If it looks familiar, it should, because it’s essentially the same car as the earlier iM-4 concept.

The new Ignis will probably be available with Suzuki’s new 1-liter 3-cylinder turbocharged Boosterjet engine, and could be offered with all-wheel drive as Suzuki says that it’s capable of tackling “snowy roads and rough tracks” and is a “compact crossover”.

Suzuki will also show the Ignis Trail concept, which has flared arches, wider tires and a bolder stance.
