Suzuki Ignis

The Ignis seats four adults in surprising comfort; in the back, we’re talking knees free from backrests and heads well clear of the ceiling here. The driver also gets a decent amount of adjustability behind the wheel, and behind you is an impressive 260-litre boot (204 litres if you get an Allgrip). The rear seatbacks adjust, too, and the seats themselves fold flat and slide back and forth in a 50/50 configuration.

So clever and spacious is the Ignis, in fact, that its cheap-looking interior materials seem to matter much less. Suzuki has at least experimented with a convincing two-tone dash; and t’s an interior that generally feels built to last, although the metallic-coloured plastic centre console sides are quite flexible.

There are chunky physical dials and buttons for controlling the air conditioning – no longer a given – as well as for the hill descent control, Grip Control, and for turning off the car’s ADAS systems.

The touchscreen infotainment is a bit of a disappointment, because it’s not a particularly easy system to use, nor is it quick to respond to your prods. Thankfully, there are controls on the steering wheel for the stereo instead; and wired smartphone mirroring for both Apple and Android devices is provided.

The driving position is particularly upright, even compared with a conventional city car, such as the Volkswagen Up. The seat could do with better lumbar support, but the steering wheel adjusts up and down, so most should be able to find a posture that suits them. The Ignis’s tall boxy shape means the interior feels airy, too.
