Brilliant little car
Before buying my ignis I'd only ever owned Fords, this little car has converted me! I'll be owning Suzukis from here on out.
Extremely cheap to run, cheap to service, comfortable and spacious, and lots of tech. Great value for money, the perfect run around car.

Best of many worlds....
We had this car for about 3 years and this is the best car purchase so far, main benefits
1. Made in Japan - Great quality
2. Price - we bought it for about 16k driveaway demo, since then the price has gone up by a few grands.
3. Space - Suzuki managed to give a lot of space for both front and back row adults - something even a Mazda 3 cannot do.
4. Fuel economy - in Sydney city I am doing 6L/100km, and I have a heavy right foot.
a very important tip - the GLX comes with 16 inch wheels with 60 profile types - with the poor quality Sydney r...oads it CAN be very bumpy and even uncomfortable for rear passengers - probably due to the smaller sized suspension system. the easy and cheap solution is to downgrade to 15 inch wheels - used by the GL. I specially sourced the identical wheels of the GL and put 185/65R15 tyres on, not only these tyres are cheaper, and now the ride is super comfortable - however, as the replacement wheels are heavier and the tyres are slightly wider you pay 0.1L/100km more in fuel - but it is a great tradeoff.

Fabulous wee car!
My children bought this car for me new in the white pearl and I just love it!
It’s so much fun to drive, comfortable, easy to park, cheap on fuel and everything works as it should. Take one for a test drive, you won’t be able to stop smiling!
Plus it looks so cute inside and an out!

I purchased my new car in May as my old one was 15yr old and I just wanted to update. My use for a car is personal and I do not do alot of kms but I needed to get an auto and also I wanted to have a car that I could slide into not have to sit down into like my old one and so this was perfect and still and SUV. I loved the shape it is still small enough for me and looks so smart and also economical to run like my old one. I purchased the orange duco and I got the protective coating over it to protect the paintwork. I am so thrilled with the ...choice that I made, its just such a joy to drive with the comfortable seats and the lovely way it drives and also its just so quiet inside. I also like how all that I need is on the steering wheel something I have not had before. I paid under $20,000 for this car and its just exactly what I need to last me another 15yrs. I also like that these days the services that the car needs to keep the 5yr warranty are capped and you know when they are needed and what the will cost, my first service on 6 mths not kms. I suggest that you take one for a test drive.

Such a great car
Replaced the XTrail with an Ignis due to 100km daily commute. Bought a manual as I live in a very steep hilly suburb. Could not be happier. Honestly, this car is the most enjoyable, user-friendly, willing little beast. Happily sits on 120kph on highway. Uses just over 5L of 91 around town when I wring it's poor neck. Super fun to drive; ridiculously easy to park; room for me, the missus and kid in booster seat. We always take my car instead of our new Mazda 6. Very, very happy with this car. If you like driving then buy the manual and stick aftermarket wheels on it. It's the bargain of the decade.

Great little car that does it all
I admit there was a little trepidation at purchasing a 1.2 litre engine for a car that would see the occasional long distance run.
This was blown out of the water when we drove to Canberra and back.
It was quiet comfortable at 110 klm/ hr and apart from road noise, was quiet, even with the road noise you could talk quietly and have a conversation, on highway roads anyway.
Im a bigger bloke, and small cars are not my thing, but the Ignis is easy to get into and out of with at least 4 inches head room while driving.
Its not a Ferrari or Porche by...

2017 Sizuki Ignis review
At first sight, all the proportions were a bit out of kilter. After looking at all the small cars this was my partners choice of an about town shopping basket lower price car.
And that’s exactly what it is, a town shopping basket, picking up young kids and the odd 100km drive.
For what it is, it’s reasonably roomy inside. The rear seat can be moved back and forward depending whether seating or carrying is needed. The 1.2 engine is fine, it does the job. The CVT transmission is perfect for about town, foot hard do...wn and it has a reasonable acceleration. It also has a reversing camera. 5.2 ltrs at 100 to 110 kph and 4.2 at 70 to 80 kph. It drinks 91 ron petrol. A little bit bumpy and a bit skittish with power on round corners but we find it all acceptable. Oh yes and Sat Nav. This was out of date when bought and an update is something like up to $179. Best to use your phone map. There's a wee button on the gear lever that puts the engine in a sports mode for overtaking that is useful. That’s about it really. There are a few more bits and bobs like the intermittent wipers that aren’t adjustable for speed of wipe, no boot light and the glove box is just that, the car manual and documents fills it up.

Great little car
The Suzuki Ignis is a great little car.
It drives beautifully and the running costs are so cheap. I always put P98 fuel in it and I get 620km out of a full tank and at the moment with P98 being $1.72 per litre it costs me $45 to fill my tank up and it lasts me a week. So affordable. It's quite roomy inside too. I have a booster seat and a baby seat in the back and there's still enough room for a little person to sit in between them. One thing it doesn't have is a CD player but everything is run through the dash which connects via Bluetooth to ...
Great little car
We were looking for a hatchback or SUV which was easy to get in and out of.As an older couple we were finding it uncomfortable climbing in and out of our otherwise excellent hatchback.A search seemed to indicate that we would be paying a lot for the relatively expensive SUV's which had an acceptable ground clearance.Then we came acroos stats which showed that the Ignis might do the job at an affordable price.We looked at the car in the showroom and knew immediately this was it.The driving position, accessability and visibility are excellent .Yo...u never feel like you are in a small car.Economy is great.The inside is a bit plasticky but the supply of gadgets is worthwhile.Maybe AEB would have been good but otherwise the package was great.We chose a manual because we still like the feel of a manual.Gears are smooth .It has plenty of pep.

- Ignis MF GLX (2016-2021)
What a need compact car for the inner west, sydney
I just love this little car. I'm in my 40's, on a 100+ income. Basically, I could by most cars on the market. Why did I buy an Ignis. Basically because it was a Suzuki "bullet proof". 5 year warranty, no squeaks, small and nimble to park in the city and around (Newtown). Features include keyless entry, reverse camera, ample room inside. All for 22k and yes. BUILT IN JAPAN! Well done guys. Cannt go past the grey!!!
I love my little Iggy!
Purchased a bright orange suzuki ignis last month GLX and I love it so much, very comfortable, great visibility and the seat changing/movement options make it a winner. The only negative is the lack of boot light!
