Zippy Little IggyIgnis MF GLX (2016-2023)
Purchased my Ignis GLX as an ex-demo with 7.5K on the odometer from our local Suzuki dealer. Thought I might miss the turbo factor of my previous car (Ford Focus), but no. It's a zippy gem of a little-big car. Solidly built. Compact, but with plenty of head and leg room. Limited boot space but more than enough for the shopping, or our daily drive to the beach with a large Groodle on the back seat. Speaking of which, the back seats slide forward but also partly fold down, allowing for purchases of small furniture, rugs etc. Fuel efficiency is aw... Read moreesome and the vehicle has enough agility to do a run up the mountain and highway to the big smoke. Love the information display with multimedia Apple CarPlay, SatNav and reversing camera. Admittedly I miss having parking sensors and will likely get them installed. That said, parking is a breeze thanks to the humble size of the vehicle. A couple of negatives are the poor quality "carpet" (which is more like felt) and a flimsy rear parcel shelf. UPDATE MAY 2023: After owning this vehicle for a few years, I've decided to trade it in on a larger, safer vehicle. Given the state of the roads in Australia (potholes etc), the Ignis was no longer a comfortable ride. And to be fair I had also started to worry about the micro size of the vehicle, especially in our busy regional town and out on the open highway. That said, I would still recommend Suzuki Ignis for those in the city looking for a zippy, fuel efficient car that is easy to park and manoeuvre. I'll miss my Iggy, but know that she served me well.
I love my Ignis!MF GL FWD, 1.2L Petrol, Manual (2016-2023)
Just a lovely little car. It's like a Tardis - big on the inside. Pulls so well on the highway and travels so nicely. Great fuel economy. Seeing that I've done less than 50,000 in 4.5 years and the price has gone up notably, I will be keeping this little beauty. Can't fault it, really.Show details
Brilliant little carIgnis MF GLX (2016-2023)
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.Show details
Best of many worlds....Ignis MF GLX (2016-2023)
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... Read moreoads 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!Ignis MF GLX (2016-2023)
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... Read morechoice 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 carMF GL FWD, 1.2L Petrol, Manual (2016-2023)
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.Show details
Great little car that does it allMF GL FWD, 1.2L Petrol, Automatic (2016-2023)
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.

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... Read morewn 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 carIgnis MF GLX (2016-2023)
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 carMF GL FWD, 1.2L Petrol, Manual (2016-2023)
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... Read moreu 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.
What a need compact car for the inner west, sydneyIgnis MF GLX (2016-2023)
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!!!Show details

Questions & Answers
Hello. Wondering what the towing capacity for the Ignis is? I don't seem to be able to find any info for this. thanks K
Can the Suzuki Ignis be flat towed?
Does this car have enough power to carry 4 adult passengers driving at 100 - 110 klm /hr on the freeway?
How will it perform going up steep hills with the same no of passengers and at what speeds?
Is the Vehicle capable of handling an interstate trip with 4 adults, driving at common speed limits?
Is the boot big enough to fit a large travel bag without any seat movement?
I have a 2021 manual. A great car in every aspect except very underpowered on expressway hills. I found it a lot safer to drop it down a couple of gears and follow trucks up hills than try and accelerate around them. Super smooth little motor and slick gearbox. Needs a turbo.
