The Suzuki Ignis was first launched in 2000 then discontinued just a few years later. The relaunched Ignis landed in 2017 and is a kind of cross between a city car and a miniature SUV. In the great Suzuki tradition of making diminutive off-roaders, this little car has the option of four-wheel drive should you ever need it. Engine choice is made simple as there’s just a 1.2-litre petrol unit on offer. It’s a capable motor though, and it gets a battery-powered boost from a mild-hybrid system.

What we think about the Suzuki Ignis
The Suzuki Ignis makes a fairly good-value alternative to the city car competition and has a unique appeal.
Fun to drive around town
(Mostly) low costs
Euro NCAP three-star safety rating from 2016
High insurance groups
Ride can be bouncy
The Suzuki Ignis is powered by a 1.2-litre petrol unit capable of delivering up to 65 mpg. You can choose from the SZ3, SZ-T and SZ-5 trims; the base trim offers a bench seat for three in the back, but that becomes two separate seats in the higher trims.
Our verdict of the Suzuki Ignis
4 / 5 Gumtree rating
No other city car can also pull off being a mini-SUV, combining smooth urban driving and parking with surprising ability on more rugged roads.
