The Advertiser - Motoring - - FIVE THINGS -

The brand has had a cou­ple of misses with its larger cars but gen­er­ally Suzuki builds cars that are fun to punt through cor­ners. The lit­tle 1.2-litre en­gine feels sur­pris­ingly perky and the CVT auto keeps it on the boil nicely, if nois­ily. That may have some­thing to do with the fact that the Ig­nis has a kerb weight of 865 kilo­grams; there are Murray Grey cows that weigh more. The steer­ing feels sharp and the car holds the road with con­fi­dence de­spite its slightly higher cen­tre of grav­ity. It’s also im­pres­sively fru­gal. The la­bel says 4.9L/100km and you’ll get pretty close to that on the free­way.
