2017 Suzuki Ignis is slightly larger than Fiat Panda and Volkswagen up!, but it’s a matter of centimetres. First generation Ignis was in production in early 21st century. Back then it was something like a small crossover. Suzuki was too early with the product, because today Ignis would have been a hit, like Vitara or SX4. But since Suzuki now has a B and C crossover in its range, what does it need the most? Of course, an A-crossover. If there is such a thing. If you want to compare Suzuki Ignis to something, it would probably be a Fiat Panda 4x4 or Panda Cross. There’s a lot of accessories to make this miniature Jeep Renegade look more off-roady. And to match the off-road looks, Ignis can be ordered with AllGrip AWD system.

Starting price: 12 000 euro
As tested: 18 000 euro

      Surprisingly the Ignis is made in Japan and not India or Hungary like most European homologated Suzuki cars.
      Too bad they chose this weak 1.2L engine rather the 1.0 Turbo engine that Suzuki has in other models. I hope they will offer it with this engine in the near future.

      In Serbia (and as I understand - in most European countries, if not all) only the cheapest version is 5 seater!?! If anyone wants to combine Allgrip 4x4 system with 5 seats - it's not possible?! This is nothing short of IDIOTIC solution! And one tiny detail on top of it: only the top range version has got a mirror on the passenger side sun visor - I had it even in my ancient Yugo 45 from 1989, and of course in my Hyundai Atos Prime from 2001 (by the way, imported from Poland! )! And it is used quite, when my darling puts make up in the morning on our way to the school where we work. Unbelievable that such a cheap thing is absent from lower packages models! By the way, I think that I've seen in a video on Youtube that for South African market Allgrip model DOES have three safety belts on the back seat, but the middle one is not a three-point version. :)

      Great review. The fact that Dual Camera Brake Support (DCBS) can't be permanently switched off (it comes back on again when ignition is switched off then on) is a deal-breaker for me. I'm not going to press and hold the DCBS button every time I get in the car. What a shame. Thanks for the review Marek.

      Marek Drives Ignis it's your favourite of the two then,I'm going test drive them both, the fact that you cannot get automatic gearbox with AWD with Ignis is a little drawback, but not a deal-breaker, thanks for your answer

      Twingo's RWD doesn't really matter, because you can't turn off traction control. Moreover there's extra heat in the boot, so I wouldn't want to store my groceries there. On the other hand I had a blast in the Ignis. It's a really fun little car, and it can do some light offroading as well.

      Marek Drives thanks for answer,I like small cars and I like cars that are a little different, twingo is a rear engine rear drive,Ignis is a mini 4x4 SUV, I know that maybe i10 or UP might be the best in that size, but when I look at them I see some boring cars. so I don't know I was thinking one of these 2, similar price tag, spacious for their size and with unique styling

      I would not buy a Twingo, because I don't like it. But you have to ask yourself, why are you considering these two cars, and for what purpose?

      Suzuki in Canada sold Swift, Vitara, Grand Vitara (with the V6 engine), Grand Vitara XL-7 (longer version of the Grand Vitara), SX4 and Kizashi;
      The new Swift is a really nice looking small sporty car with available AWD, again, too bad no Suzuki in Canada/USA

      Your review was very critical and good. Definitely this is not a family car. It can be an outing car for nearby places. Definitely an SUV stance car but I feel the interior cabin appears to be very small.
      Thanks to you for bringing up the critical review for Dual Camera brake system. Owing to the city car that system can be irritating for the person in a hurry.

      A good honest review. I know I bought one. Four grip copes with farm tracks and wet fields fine. Hybrid system doesn't seem to do much most of the time except on country roads with rolling hills where the energy saved on the downhills helps haul you up the uphills. Fuel consumption a steady 60 mpg. On road it's definitely not quick but far better than the Jimny it has replaced. Steering is slow. Anti collision is a pain but l'm learning to ignore it and it may save me from a bump one day. I actually quite like the looks. Road tax was low in the U.K. before the recent hike. I fortunately got in just before. All in all a sensible choice and may we have a long relationship. A City car for those living out in the sticks.
