Champion Motors launched the all-new Suzuki Ignis in Singapore today, a bold and endearing urban compact SUV that’s quickly making its way into the hearts of drivers. Ms Jasmmine Wong, CEO of Inchcape Greater China and Singapore, said, “We are thrilled to officially bring the Suzuki Ignis to Singapore, adding yet another car with a distinct personality to our line-up, and a welcomed breath of fresh air to the sub-compact SUV market segment.” “The Ignis is a unique character on the road, with its bold and recognisable styling. Combined with urban functionality, there’s nothing else like this car – a perfect companion for those who march to the beat of their own drum,” said Mr Samuel Yong, Strategic Marketing and Business Strategy Director of Inchcape Singapore. “It’s big on charm but low in fuel consumption, thanks to the mild hybrid system for better fuel economy.”
Modern touch meets Suzuki heritage
The Ignis wraps convenience and comfort in a stylish new exterior, exuding Suzuki DNA from every surface while introducing a unique character. The impressive shape of the Ignis body begins with the distinctive front face that integrates the striking gaze of the LED headlamps and the strong lines of the front grille. It continues with the robust shoulders that suggest strength while the surface of the lower body exudes expressiveness. It is a simple design that at the same time presents a familiar, lovable expression. While inheriting design elements of the first-generation Cervo and first-generation Vitara, as well as the previous generation Swift, the Ignis introduces simple straight lines and curves that accentuate its distinct personality and appeal, and that give a strong impression at first sight. Headlamps placed in the front grille hail from the Cervo; blackout A and B pillars are reminiscent of the Swift; and a clamshell-shaped bonnet and fender garnish are influenced by the Vitara.
Outstanding driving performance
A 1.2 DUALJET engine that delivers both powerful performance and excellent fuel economy powers the Ignis. This is combined with the SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) mild hybrid system, a lightweight, compact mild hybrid system that uses an ISG (Integrated Starter Generator) to realise even greater fuel efficiency without compromising interior spaciousness and usability. The Ignis adopts a larger percentage of lightweight and strong high-tensile steel, making it possible to reduce vehicle weight while still maintaining a high level of rigidity, keeping the kerbside weight at a cool 890kg, an achievement in its class.
Sporty and compact, yet spacious
In addition to its simple yet unique design, the characteristic image of the Ignis is further enhanced by its interior ambiance. The round shape of its air-conditioning system’s panel and the advanced feel of its distinctive meter cluster design combine to give the cabin environment a futuristic look. The sweeping horizontal line of the instrument panel uses materials with rich texture to create a design that conveys breadth and roominess. Within its compact body size, the Ignis features a roomy and comfortable cabin with space between occupants, ample headroom, and legroom. In the rear, the Ignis boasts luggage space volume measuring more than 500L when the sliding rear seats are folded down. The 50:50 split rear seats can be folded down from the luggage side as well, making it possible to arrange space for equipment needed for life’s adventures. Complete with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, the Ignis is a ready and steady companion.
Safety with clever technology
Safety is key at Suzuki – and the Ignis comes equipped with the Suzuki Safety Support (ADAS) Suite, an active safety system that helps drivers navigate with ease and mitigate accidents. Advanced safety functions include:
- Pre-collision system – Dual Camera Brake Support (DCBS): When travelling at vehicle speeds of 5km/h or above, stereo cameras detect vehicles and pedestrians ahead, helping avoid collisions and mitigate collision damage through warnings and automatic
- Lane departure warning function: When traveling at vehicle speeds of approximately 60km/h or above and a turn signal is not activated, the system vibrates the steering wheel and lights a warning indicator on the meter panel to draw attention to lane departures caused by factors such as inattention to the
- Weaving alert function: When traveling at vehicle speeds of approximately 60km/h or above and weaving from side to side within the lane, the system sounds a warning buzzer and lights an indicator on the meter

With a range of quirky single and duo-toned designs, drivers are free to pursue their individual and unique tastes.
