Cape Town Welcomes the All New Suzuki Ignis
Cape Town has been pleasantly surprised with the arrival of the all new Suzuki Ignis. This cheeky little crossover is offered to the South African market in GL and GLX manual variants, including the GLX Automatic, all of which are powered by the same 1.2 litre engine, and the reviewers have already been raving.
Suzuki Ignis Range
The GL offers standard air conditioning, central locking, electric windows and mirrors, MP3/CD audio player with two-speakers and USB port, dual front airbags, and ABS brakes. As with the GLX you get added chrome grille accents, projector type LED headlights, 15-inch black alloy wheels, wheel arch extensions and roof rails. The GLX allows for more customisation, such as two-tone colour choices, whereas the GL comes in one solid colour.
Black and white contrasts the interior with the top half of the dashboard finished in a smart black, while the lower sections are in contrasting white. The centre console panels are finished in red, blue or titanium, depending on the chosen exterior colour.
The manual version accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 11,6 sec, while top speed is 165 km/h. Whereas the automatic, the Ignis reaches 100km/h in 13,0 sec, with a top speed of 155 km/h.
The new crossover’s construction features Suzuki’s Total Effective Control Technology (TECT), which includes crumple zones that efficiently absorb the impact of a collision, a chassis that efficiently distributes the impact energy, and a rigid passenger safety cell.
At just 3,7 metres long and 1,69 metres wide the Ignis can be described as compact but don’t be fooled, this nifty crossover offers a generous 180 mm ground clearance. The overall design is unmistakably Suzuki with bold headlights, chunky shape and pronounced wheel arches.
There is no denying that the Suzuki Ignis is perfect for the Cape Town market.
