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.
Purchased in August 2018.
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...
Purchased in January 2018 for A$18,000.00.
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.
