The 2020 Suzuki Ignis on sale in Ireland now!

Suzuki Ireland has confirmed that the updated 2020 Suzuki Ignis is now on sale in Ireland, priced from €15,665.

The Ignis has undergone a facelift for 2020, with refreshed styling and engine technology. The current generation of the car debuted in Ireland in 2017. It retains its distinct small SUV character with new front grille and bumpers with silver garnishes, new interior accent colours, and a more efficient engine with expanded mild hybrid system capacity.

Inside there are new interior accent colours – Lazuli Medium Blue Pearl and Medium Grey Metallic – matched to grey or blue seat upholstery. The instrument panel, featuring a newly designed meter cluster, has been updated with a contrast of black and white.

The 2020 Suzuki Ignis is available in eleven single-tone and seven two-tone colours, including three new shades – Caravan Ivory Pearl Metallic, Rush Yellow Metallic and Tough Khaki Pearl Metallic.

Under the bonnet there is a new ‘K12D’ 1.2-litre petrol engine (83 hp) and mild hybrid system with significantly enlarged 10Ah lithium-ion battery capacity (up from 3Ah). The brand says it offers enhanced fuel efficiency and is now also available with a CVT automatic option, alongside the 5-speed manual. The engine features a new dual injection system, promising both powerful response and high fuel efficiency. This balance is made possible through advances that include an electric intake VVT (variable valve timing), a variable displacement oil pump and electric piston cooling jets.

The mild hybrid system converts kinetic energy generated during deceleration into electric energy which is charged to the lithium-ion battery and used by an electric motor function to assist the engine when accelerating for higher fuel efficiency.

The new Suzuki Ignis is available in three trim levels – SZ3, SZ-T and SZ5. Standard equipment includes LED headlights, 5 seats with fixed rear bench, air con and Bluetooth. SZ-T adds 16″ alloys, Apple Car Play and Android Auto, roof rails, wheel arch extensions and side mouldings. The seat arrangement is 4 seats with individual sliding rear seats.

The CVT automatic is available from €18, 215 from the SZ-T trim.
