Exterior design Suzuki IGNIS 2017

Interior design Suzuki IGNIS 2017
In addition to its simple yet unique design, the characteristic image of the Suzuki IGNIS is further enhanced by its interior ambience. The round shape of its air-conditioning system’s panel and the advanced feel of its distinctive instrument cluster design combine to give the cabin environment a futuristic look.
Depending on the choice of exterior colour, orange and metallic titanium accent colours add an extra touch of quality to the cabin and help establish an active image that befits a crossover.
Capacity Suzuki IGNIS 2017
Adopting Suzuki’s new generation platform strategy minimised the size of the engine compartment which has enabled maximising the space available for cabin occupants and luggage. Within its compact body size, Suzuki IGNIS features a roomy and comfortable cabin with ample space between occupants, ample headroom and legroom contributing to its relaxing environment.
Another feature is large-capacity luggage space of 267L (SZ3). It also adopts sliding rear seat functionality that, combined with the ability to fold down the rear seatbacks, makes it possible to accommodate a wide variety of luggage.
Standard equipment for all Suzuki Ignis models in the range is comprehensive and the SZ3 model includes six airbags, air conditioning, DAB radio with Bluetooth, 15-in. wheels, body coloured door mirrors, front electric windows and five seat capacity.
SZ-T adds satellite navigation, rear view camera, 16-in. roof rails, alloy wheels, wheel arch extensions and four seat capacity with individually sliding rear seats. SZ5 adds auto air conditioning, Dual Camera Brake Support, keyless entry and start, rear electric windows, LED Headlghts with DRL and front foglamps.
Suzuki IGNIS is available in one solid colour, five optional metallic colours and five two tone colours whereby the roof colour on all is Super Pearl Black Metallic.
Suzuki first introduced its 1.2-l. Dualjet technlogy (K12C) in 2014. In summary, Dualjet incorporates Suzuki’s engine technology and uses twin fuel injectors for improved fuel economy. Dualjet design positions the fuel injectors very close to the engine inlet valves which allows for a finer fuel atomisation.
Available on the SZ5 manual model, the SHVS mild hybrid is a compact and lightweight unit that incorporates an Integrated Starter Generator which acts as both a generator and starter motor, the ISG is belt driven and assists the engine during vehicle take off and acceleration and also generates electricity through regenerative braking.
The SHVS system only uses its conventional engine starter motor when first started from cold, under all other conditions it uses the ISG unit to allow smooth and quiet engine restarts.
The energy assistance provided during acceleration enables the SHVS to be known as a mild hybrid system which is ideally suited to a compact car and adds just 6.2 kilograms to the overall weight. In the new Suzuki IGNIS 2017 the SHVS system helps Suzuki reach a top class CO2 emissions figure of 97g/km plus achieve a fuel consumption figure of 65.7mpg on the EC combined cycle for the 2WD model.
The new 2017 Suzuki IGNIS adopts Suzuki’s ALLGRIP "AUTO" four-wheel drive system and is available on the SZ5 model. First introduced in Swift, this is a well proven and simple fully automatic and permanent four-wheel drive layout which transfers additional torque to the rear wheels when required via a viscous coupling.
Enhancements to the Suzuki IGNIS ALLGRIP system include Hill Descent Control and Grip Control. Grip Control activates on slippery surfaces at speeds of less than 18mph. Once switched on by the driver, it focuses torque on the driven wheels that have grip and will quickly apply braking to the wheel that is spinning.
The Suzuki IGNIS adopts Suzuki‘s TECT (Total Effective Control Technology) concept that provides a high level of collision safety. Some of the features include collapsible structures that absorb impact energy in the event of a collision, a frame structure that effectively disperses impact energy, and rigid cabin structure.
As an additional safety feature on the SZ5 model, DCBS (Dual Camera Brake Support) is fitted which utilises stereo cameras located on each side of the drivers interior rear view mirror. These function in a similar way to the human eye and detect lane markings as well as objects ahead (including pedestrians) and also their distance away. This new feature has enabled the Suzuki IGNIS SZ5 to be awarded Five Stars in the latest NCAP tests.
The Suzuki IGNIS SZ3 model has a fixed rear seat and the luggage area has a capacity of 267 l. (VDA) with the rear seat in its upright position. On SZ-T and SZ5 models the two individual rear seats can slide 165 millimeters to provide either greater luggage capacity or more rear passenger leg room; additionally, the seat backrests have a two position recline function. The luggage capacity increases to 514 l. with both rear seats folded and can be as high as 1,100 l. if fully loaded to the roof line.
