The Suzuki Ignis has made its world premiere along with the Suzuki Ignis Trail Concept at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. The Suzuki Ignis is based on the iM-4 concept that was unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show in March.
Suzuki says that the Ignis “straddles the boundary between daily life and leisure.” It has a high eye point and good road clearance allowing confident driving on snowy roads and rough tracks. The technical details have not been released but it is said that the car is underpinned by a new platform.
The iM-4 concept on which the Ignis is based, had dimensions of 3,700mm, 1,660 mm, and 1,595mm in length, width, and height respectively. Power for the Ignis will likely come from a 1.2-liter DualJet petrol engine which will be mated to a CVT automatic transmission sending power to the front wheels with all-wheel drive being an option.
The Suzuki Ignis Trail Concept is a rugged version of the Ignis by the presence of big-diameter wheels and muscular wheel arches finished in gloss black. Other distinctive elements are the orange accents present on the body and the wheels. The concept has dimensions of 3,700 mm in length, 1690 mm in width, and 1,620 mm in height; it derives power from a 1,242 cc Dualjet petrol engine. The carmaker has not released any production plans yet for this model.
