Tokyo 2015: Suzuki Ignis Returns

Hans September 30, 2015 12:48

After nearly a seven-year hiatus, the Suzuki Ignis crossover is set to return. Previous models of the Ignis were jointly developed by Suzuki and General Motors. 

The previous generation Ignis was sold in Japan and Europe under the Suzuki brand. It was also sold in Australia and South America as the Holden Cruze and Chevrolet Cruze (unrelated to the C-segment sedan of the same name) before it was discontinued in 2008.

Today, Suzuki announced that an all-new Suzuki Ignis will make its global debut at the coming Tokyo Motor Show 2015, which opens at the end of October.

Understandably, Suzuki has yet to provide much details about the all-new Ignis but reports by the Japanese media say that the car will be powered by a 1.2-litre engine, paired to a mild hybrid system.

They also indicated the Ignis measures 3,700 mm long, 1,660 mm wide and 1,595 mm high. That would mean that the Ignis will have a smaller footprint than a Suzuki Swift, but rides 85 mm higher.
