THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW

SAFETY

Only basic gear such as six airbags, stability control and rear-view camera are included.

VALUE The GL starts from less than $20k, but we sampled the GLX which adds $1000 to the bottom line.

It’s well worth the investment. For the extra coin it has push-button start, automatic air-con, 16-inch alloys (far better compared with steel wheels) and LED headlamps.

Other equipment highlights are cruise control, leather-covered steering wheel, tinted windows and a 7.0-inch touch screen featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Depending on external hue, the Ignis comes with either dark blue or silver interior accents — but our test car stood out from the crowd with every accessory box ticked.

Collective­ly, all the extras added more than $3570.

Servicing is among the least expensive you’ll find, with an averaged capped price of $293 over five years with annual or 15,000km intervals.
