How much does the Suzuki Ignis cost to run?

The 1.2L petrol is the most economical Suzuki Ignis to run, taking into account insurance, tax and fuel efficiency. Compared to the competition in the SUV segment, it’s one of the best you can choose.

The Suzuki Ignis 1.2L petrol is free to tax, as it sits in tax band A. In fact this is the lowest CO2 output of any model in the SUV segment at the time of writing. Good job, Suzuki.

It does almost 66 MPG on average, which means it will cost £9.00* in petrol every 100 miles driven.

In terms of fuel efficiency, it sits between the Suzuki Vitara 1.6L diesel and the more thirsty Ford Kuga 1.5L diesel.

The lower the insurance group, the cheaper a car should be to insure. This model is rated insurance group 17, which is lower than the Audi Q3 2.0L diesel, but higher than the Ford Kuga 1.5L diesel.

Suzuki Ignis: How big is the boot?

The Suzuki Ignis has a below average boot space (253 litres of luggage with the seats up).

This would allow one pushchair and one large bag. Alternatively you could load up with 2 large bags or 2 cabin bags instead.

Worth knowing, the Land Rover Discovery Sport SUV is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and 7 large bags with its 981 litres.

Is the Suzuki Ignis easy to park?

While not the absolute narrowest car (that is the Suzuki Jimny), this is in the top third for ease of parking in car parks. Given a typical supermarket space, it will fill just under three quarters of the space.

If you park on the street regularly, this is one of the cars to shortlist. At 3700m long it gives you reasonable 1100mm space to move the car in and out of the bay.

Which Suzuki Ignis has the best performance?

The fastest Suzuki Ignis from 0-60, is the 1.2L petrol (if you’re a petrol head, it has 120 lbs/ft torque and 90 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 11.1 seconds.

The closest rival in its class is the Land Rover Discovery Sport 2.0L diesel, which will beat your Suzuki Ignis to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.
